There are so many stories and rumors about the legendary frontman of the Doors that we can’t be sure where the truth begins and ends. However, some things about one of the greatest poets and rock stars in music history are undoubtedly true such as him being homeless when he was still struggling with his music and writing career.

Most of his fans will tell you how Jim lived during his short but great career in a cheap hotel on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, but not many know that before Morrison made it big he used to be homeless and slept in just about anyplace you can literally imagine. Rumors has it that he even spent quite a few nights under the pier at Venice Beach.

Sam Worthington went from a homeless actor to megastar overnight, and that’s not even an overstatement.
