9. Homeless

In 2002, when he was 21 years old, Kitsch moved to New York to pursue a modeling career; however, things weren’t easy and he ended up homeless and has spent time living in subways and his car. “I was homeless in New York for a awhile, and then I went to L.A., where I lived in my car,” he once stated about the time. He also opened up about his time sleeping on the floor of the 8th Avenue subway train. “I’d try to stay as low to the ground as possible so [security] didn’t see me. I’d get on the subway late at night and sleep for five or six hours.”
