Before they were famous, some of Hollywood's biggest stars were just regular people working at regular jobs. Jeremy Renner was a makeup artist, Harrison Ford was a hunky carpenter and Rachel McAdams worked at a McDonald's. Similarly, the cast of the upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot started out doing whatever they could to make ends meet before making it big.

During a Wednesday appearance on "Ellen," "Saturday Night Live" actress Leslie Jones revealed that she used to work as telemarketer for Scientology, shocking the rest of her fellow cast mates, who immediately burst out laughing.

"Uh, yeah ... They kinda still don't know I'm not a Scientologist," Jones said, staring straight into the camera with a scared look. "Thanks for blowing my cover, Ellen."  

When DeGeneres pushed Jones for more details about her former job, the comedian said, "I lived in Glendale, I needed to pay the rent and it was a very easy interview -- I just [acted] crazy." 

Watch below to find out more about the actresses' odd jobs: 

The first trailer for "Ghostbusters" was revealed on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" back in March, and director Paul Feig dished on why he wanted Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the remake. 

"When I was putting this together, I just said, ‘I have lists of people who make me laugh. And I have one list of the people that make me cry,’ and so I thought, I’m doing ‘Ghostbusters,’ I gotta pull out the heavy guns," Feig told DeGeneres. "And so these four women are just so funny and it’s really an honor." 

Look for "Ghostbusters" when it hits theaters on July 15, 2016.
