21 Celebs Who Were Once Broke And Homeless


3. Hilary Swank

This Oscar winner definitely started from the bottom. Even before she ended up homeless, she and her family struggled with money issues. Swank grew up in a trailer park and lived in a car with her mother when she was a young adult.

She dropped out of school at the age of 15, and Swank and her mother went to Los Angeles with only $75 to their names. When they got to California, they did not have enough money to get an apartment, so they lived out of their car for a couple of weeks.

Swank got her big break when she was in her early 20s. She got the role in Boys Don’t Cry, a role that would lead to an unbelievable turnaround – an Oscar award for Best Actress. Even though she only made about $3000 for that role, Swank’s worries were over. She is currently one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood.
