Sylvester Stallone lived in a bus station for 3 weeks before finding himself cast in an adult role.

It was either do that movie or rob someone, because I was at the end – the very end – of my rope,” the actor said.

While it didn’t propel him to stardom yet, this would later pave the way for him to land more serious roles, with Rocky being his real ticket to fame.

From being homeless, Stallone today has a net worth of around $400 million.
