Celebrities Who Left Hollywood For Regular Office Jobs


After achieving significant fame and, in many cases, amassing fortunes, certain celebrities choose to step away from the limelight to pursue different paths. This shift, be it a temporary hiatus or a full departure from their acting careers, leads them to take on commonplace roles in the corporate world. This transition to a more mundane lifestyle might seem less thrilling, yet one undeniable benefit of a conventional job is the absence of the intense stress and scheduling demands associated with the entertainment industry. Without further delay, here’s a compilation of stars who have transitioned to jobs that are nearly as “everyday” as ours.

1. Phoebe Cates


Known from: Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Now: Owner of clothing store

Assets: €35 million*

Phoebe Cates, renowned for her roles in iconic 1980s films such as “Gremlins” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” has openly shared in interviews that acting was never her true passion, nor did she hold a deep affection for the film industry. Her involvement in acting was primarily motivated by financial reasons. True to her word, Cates has since transitioned out of the acting world and ventured into the realm of entrepreneurship. Today, she is the proud owner of a boutique clothing store named Blue Tree, situated on the prestigious Madison Avenue in New York City. Unlike major retail chains like Levi Strauss, Blue Tree stands out as a privately-owned establishment, reflecting Cates’s personal touch and business acumen.
