Whoopi Goldberg, 67, had a variety of odd jobs before becoming a celebrated actor, comedian, author and television personality, and one of the hosts at the forefront of The View.

Now, the Hollywood veteran looked back on her days as a bricklayer and a funeral home beautician, as she admitted the latter was “a rough gig”.

She said: “I did hair and makeup on dead people. There was an ad in the paper!

“And I’m a licensed beautician as well, because I went to beauty school.”

Whoppi, who shot to fame in 1985 when director Steven Spielberg cast her in The Color Purple, continued: “It’s a rough gig.”

The TV star continued in a video for Oprah’s Master Class: “You have to be a certain kind of person.

“And you have to love people in order to make them worthy of a great send-off.”

The revelation comes after last week Whoopi appeared to be falling out of her seat while a debate raged on among her fellow The View stars.

The presenter looked like she was about to tip out of her chair as she leant over while her The View co-star Sara Haines discussed body hair with the moderators.

It happened as Sara, 45, explained the benefits of keeping underarm hair long, causing the actress to lean away from her.

Brushing away comments about underarm hair causing a “funky scent”, Sarah explained: “It also reduces friction, a little bit, and it wicks sweat away.”

The camera then panned over to Whoopi, who could be seen leaning to the side with a comical blank stare while the audience laughed.

In what seemed like an attempt to prevent Whoopi from falling off her chair, Sarah went over and put her arm around her.

However, the whole moment ended up being a joke as Sarah put her armpit closer to Whoopi’s face, fanning the air with her hand, alluding to the actress’ disgusted reaction.
