Tom Selleck might be known as an icon to some — with one heck of a net worth — but to those who know him personally, he’s just your average avocado farmer and enthusiast. That’s right: Selleck works on an avocado farm and, according to Good Housekeeping, it’s a job that he enjoys quite a bit, too. He told the publication, “I live on a 63-acre avocado ranch. So I like to get outside and work on the farm, from fixing roads to clearing brush. I hate going to the gym, so sweating outdoors sure beats sitting on a stationary bike staring at my navel.” If that weren’t enough, Selleck also said that, unlike the hefty Hollywood paychecks that he gets on the regular, he is great at being an avocado farmer because he’s “cheaper than anyone I could hire to do it.”
And while some of Selleck’s fans might see this as an easy-going side job, there have been just as many pros to owning and working on an avocado farm as there are cons. You’d think that Selleck would be a huge fan of chips and guacamole or, say, a lean and mean avocado toast for breakfast, but apparently, that’s simply not the case.
