Sure we know them now as total A-list big time movie stars, but a lot of these ladies got their starts yukking it up on some pretty cheesy sitcoms. Here's a look at five movie stars who got their starts working with laugh tracks. Thank goodness too, or there might not have been anyone laughing.
Jennifer Lawrence- The Bill Engvall Show
Oscar Winner (!!!!) Jennifer Lawrence may be an award-winning movie star these days, but her big break came playing the pretty teen daughter of a family counselor on this TBS show. TBS? Explains why I never heard of it. If television was the Hunger Games, TBS's original programming would be the tributes who die running for the cornucopia the minute the games start. Or something like that. Luckily, for those of us out of the TBS loop, a Jennifer Lawrence uber-fan with a lot of time on their hands compiled all of her best clips into this video:
Emma Stone--The Suit Life Of Zack And Cody
Emma Stone is a much-admired beauty now, but she once played a dog! I mean she was literally the voice of a dog on Suite Life. She played London Tipton's dog Ivana. Her big moment on the show was humping Maddie's dog Scamp and having his puppies. It's all so 16 and Pregnant only with dogs. I would totally watch that show btw so get to work MTV. Here's Emma as Ivana in an incredibly crappy quality clip.
Mila Kunis--Unhappily Ever After
Sure she became a star on a sitcom, but she was a child actor for years before she got her role on That 70s Show. Here's the stunning actress on the total turd Married With Children rip-off Unhappily Ever After. Her big scene involves teaching a boy how to pick-up ladies. And then the boy impresses Mila's character with his big snake. Yeeeeah...edgy.
Zooey Deschanel-- Veronica's Closet
Zooey played a Plain Jane with dreams of being a model, on this comedy set in the fashion world. Guess what? She goes from nottie to hottie! SO FRIGGIN' SHOCKING! You did not see that coming, did you? Now she's a hottie pretending to be a nottie on the New Girl. Full circle, people. Here she is being, you guessed it...ADORKABLE!
Megan Fox--The Help
If there's one thing Megan Fox is famous for it's her comedy chops! And by 'comedy chops' I mean her body. But she did get her start on a comedy playing the spoiled wealthy daughter on The Help. The Help shouldn't be confused with the movie of the same name. The movie The Help is a heartwarming story about race relations during the turbulent times of the Civil Rights Era. The TV show is a piece of crap that plays on racial and economic stereotypes for laughs and gets not a one! Very different! I'm glad Fox is now eschewing crappy TV shows to star in crappy movies! JK! Love you Megan! Even though you describe yourself as a mother, lover, and a healer!!
