17. Clint Eastwood, Lumberjack
Don't think Eastwood became the manliest man around through sheer force of will. No. Just as with all things, you have to put the time in, son. The chair-talker's pre-cowboy resumé reads more like a Levis ad than actual work experience. Eastwood was a lumberjack, fireman, steel worker, aircraft manufacturer, and Army swimming instructor before he got his fat $75 per week contract that broke him into the B-movie scene.
