Okay, so she still hasn't quite made it to Hollywood, but Samantha gave birth to Jude Law's fourth child after a brief fling in 2009. So she's famous by association.

Just a year before giving birth to the movie star's daughter, Samantha worked at a Pensacola Beach, Florida Hooters.

Later, she said of the experience, “I wasn’t cut out to be a waitress, and I certainly wasn’t cut out to be a Hooters waitress. That was a short-lived ambition.”
