Here’s a list of now-famous ex-homeless people. On the list are names such as: Jim Carrey, William Shatner, Charlie Chaplin, Halle Berry, Kelly Clarkson, Cary Grant, and David Letterman. Missing is the great Clark Gable who actually hoboed from Texas to Portland where he married a woman 17 years his senior who surgically had his ears pulled back, and his teeth straightened, and before making it big in Hollywood where he would marry 5 times and die of a triple heart attack from his role in The Misfits, and, perhaps equally, from smoking 3 packs of unfiltered cigarettes, cigars, and 3 bowls of pipe tobacco a day.
Here’s the list from Homelesstales.com
