Before these actresses got famous, they all had to work the route and accepting almost any job that came their way.
Some took up modelling jobs as pin-up girls or appeared in advertisements.
These jobs, which were done over a decade ago, show their fun and young side.
They also show these famous actresses wearing hilariously bad outfits -- though which were considered the top fashions of that time.
See how awful Cecilia Cheung looks doing the catwalk with a bizarre colour wig and how girly Zhou Xun looks in an weather advertisement.
