Actress Rebecca Romijn was sacked from her first job at a poultry shop, because she stole chickens every day.

But not before the X-MEN star became so handy with the fowl she learned to bone a chicken breast in seven seconds.

She explains, "When I first got there, the guy who was training me said, 'You can take one of these for lunch if you want.' I was like, 'Really? Everyday?' and he said, 'Just be cool about it.'

"So I took one every day. I would just go out to my car and turn on my old-school hip-hop and eat my chicken.

"Finally one day the boss came and knocked on my window and said, 'You've been taking chicken every day since you've worked here.'

"I told her they were delicious and she said, 'You're fired.'"
