There’s a litany of actors who’ve been slumming it in the world of commercials since the beginning of their careers. Sometimes, commercials are their easiest entryway into fame; at other points, though, they spend their twilight in these ads. It’s not terribly shocking that a number of Oscar-nominated actors have been in food and drink commercials, both pre- and post-fame. The first actor who comes to mind is Jamie Lee Curtis, Activia spokeswoman. Unfortunately, she’s never been nominated for an Oscar, though she should’ve been for A Fish Called Wanda and True Lies. (Um, can you tell I’m still annoyed about this?)
Anyway, here are some Oscar-nominated performers who were in food commercials at some point in their careers.
