Brad Pitt and Other Celebs Shilled for Food Before They Were Famous
George Clooney might be well-known as the face of Nespresso, and the image of Padma Lakshmi munching away at Burger King is forever ingrained in the minds of 14-year-old boys. Other celebrities have endorsed food products, too ... only in roles before they hit stardom. The Daily Meal has a fun roundup of now-famous celebrities in commercials for various foods. Brad Pitt proves that, when it comes to Pringles, once you pop, the fun don't stop.
Other celebrities include both a teen Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ben Affleck for Burger King -- such talent netted by the fast-food company! Discover Drew Barrymore carousing with the Pillsbury Doughboy, and Elijah Wood endorsing Pizza Hut. Oddly, the roundup forgot one of the best celebrity commercials, namely Lindsay Lohan's (and Bill Cosby's!) Jell-O commercial. A reminder of the golden old days, before LiLo even knew what a Jell-O shot was.
