Have you heard of the Famous Babysitters Club? It’s a club that consists of famous people that have babysat other famous people before any of them were famous. Perhaps it should be called “The Before-They-Were-Famous Babysitters Club,” but that’s not as catchy.
You may be surprised about some of the members of The Famous Babysitters Club. For example, William H. Macy used to babysit while he was a struggling actor in Chicago. He actually used to babysit “Entourage”‘s Ari (Jeremy Piven) and Macy’s “Shameless” co-star and love interest, Joan Cusack. What kind of babysitter was Macy? Did he and the kids make darkly comedic home videos together? Did he give the kids whiskey and Marlboros to snack on before they went to bed? Did any children mysteriously disappear? We don’t have the answers to any of those questions for you, but we can give you a list of other famous male babysitters.

So, here’s a list of famous lady babysitters: Cher babysat Anthony Keidis, Chloe Sevigny babysat Topher Grace and Tia and Tamera Mowry babysat Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
