Actor Paul Rudd’s First Entry-Level Job was Glazing Hams

Paul Rudd, the star of “Ant Man,” used to be a top-notch ham glazer back in the day.

Rudd revealed in an interview with IMDB that his first jobs included delivering papers and bagging groceries, but the strangest one was glazing hams. Rudd, whose friends used to call him “Paul Ham Glazer” back in the day, explained:

“It was a weird job and I appreciated how strange it was, and the fact that I smelled like ham all the time.

Whether you want to become a successful entrepreneur, world-famous actor or ant-sized superhero, everyone has to start somewhere.
