We don’t usually associate homelessness with an actor or actress who currently can claim roles in the massive The Hunger Games series, the new Paul Thomas Anderson, and a bit part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But Jena Malone explains that being a "roadie" of sorts during her childhood helped make her the actress that she is today, and she’s all the better for it.

Jena Malone was recounting her career, and the moments that led up to this recent string of hits, with The Daily Beast, and she explained that she recalls living in 27 different places before even turning 9 years old. "We were just so poor," Malone recalls about the early years living with her birth mom and her mother’s girlfriend. "We’d hop out of apartments, lose jobs, find a cheaper place, get kicked out, live in cars, and live in hotels. It was glorious."
