Celebrities who have second jobs

These days, for many celebrities it’s not enough to be simply actors or musicians – they want to be more than that. Once they establish themselves in their particular field of entertainment, some famous people decide to take a shot at some other career. Take a look at these celebrities and their second jobs.

Justin Timberlake








While successfully branching from music to acting, Timberlake has had equal success as an entrepreneur. In 2005, he and a childhood friend founded the William Rast fashion brand, a salute to “American denim heritage and biker culture,” with retail income later estimated by Forbes at $50 million per year. He’s also launched, or put his name behind, a brand of tequila, a golf course, a New York City barbecue restaurant and a record label.

Drew Barrymore








Drew Barrymore must have picked up a few trade secrets during her Cover Girl days because she recently launched a cosmetics line of her own. Sold only at Wal-Mart, Flower Beauty Makeup prides itself on offering high-quality products at low prices. Plus, she’s always killed it in the beauty department.

Kevin Costner








Though we just saw Kevin Costner in Man of Steel, this actor actually has quite a few side jobs including: country music, a casino, and, interestingly, an oil clean up business. Kevin Costner bought a patent from the US government in 1995 and began developing oil separation machines.

Clint Eastwood








He is an actor, director, producer, composer, pianist, politician, and golf club owner. He owns Tehama Golf Club in Carmel, California, a private golf club where by invitation only membership is $500,000. He is also an investor at Pebble Beach Golf Links, the world-renowned course known for hosting major championships. Clint Eastwood’s political stint also took place in Carmel, California where he was the mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea from 1986 to 1988.

Kiefer Sutherland








With good friend and veteran songwriter Jude Cole, Sutherland founded Ironworks Music, a record label and studio that records and releases records by artists the pair believe in, with an emphasis on down-home roots rock. The actor emphasized he had no intention of recording himself, saying the purpose of the studio and label were to “help young artists that might not be able to find their way in what is becoming a very shrinking corporate music industry.”

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock 2012 Award







The Academy Award-winning actress owns Bess Bistro in Austin, Texas, an eco-friendly restaurant serving up Southern favorites like fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, and of course, gumbo. Instead of sending customers home with plastic utensils and cups, Sandra says she buys biodegradable materials. For instance, the takeout containers may look Styrofoam, but they are actually made from sugar cane. “It’s just a few cents,” she says. “I think we’re absolutely worth it—those few extra pennies help to make sure that we have a beautiful earth.”

Jessica Alba








Jessica Alba has never hesitated to praise her two adorable girls, but it seems that motherhood has affected her in a bigger way than most. After becoming frustrated in her search for non-toxic products to use on her growing family, Alba started The Honest Company. Dedicated to providing all natural products to families, The Honest Company offers products ranging from food, to hygiene, and even clothes.

Tom Selleck








Selleck has a second job in tending to his 60-acre avocado farm, where working the land serves as his form of exercise. With more than 2,000 avocado trees on his property, he has been a successful avocado provider — despite the fact he’s admitted distaste for eating the fruit himself.

Jeremy Renner








When he is not filming, Jeremy Renner is a house-flipper. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Renner and a business partner have had considerable success flipping houses, from a 2002 three-bedroom they bought for $659,000 and sold less than one year later for $900,000, to the 1924 Greek Revival estate they bought in 2008 for $1.55 million and sold a year later for more than $4 million.

Robert De Niro








Robert De Niro is taking over Tribeca. Not only did he help start the neighborhood’s highly successful eponymous film festival, the New York City native has also acquired many of its high-end restaurants. He already has Nobu, TriBeCa Grill, and Locanda Verde under his belt. And he’s got stake in the Greenwich Hotel, he’s a hotelier, too.
