In my life---I've been blessed---I've never have experienced being homeless.  I may have been out of a job for awhile, but never have I lived on the street---a very scary prospect.   When I ran across this list on cnn.com---I was stunned some of the biggest stars WERE down on their luck and were homeless, check out this list...pretty surprising.  Obviously none of these stars are homeless now.

It was during a recent interview, Jennifer Lopez admitted that she was homeless for a while before becoming a star.    Here's the list of stars who lived on the street or in their cars, before success came their way:
