The 25 Worst Day Jobs Held By Famous Actors

10. Mickey Rourke, "Gambling Debt Collector"

"I was hired by gamblers in New York to collect money from people," Rourke said. We all know what that entails.

The actor recently opened up about his days as a heavy, recounting how he would've shot a man if the gun hadn't misfired. Rourke did such a good job in the "collections department," for a man he refers to only as "Uncle So-and-so," that he got a promotion: He was enlisted to blow up a Harlem gas station.

Luckily for Rourke's long-term prospects, he couldn't get his hands on enough dynamite to finish the job, and was demoted in short order.
