Penniless actor forced to live in his car now makes £250k a year after selling
100,000 homemade films from the boot
It's a rags to riches tale that would grace any
Hollywood blockbuster - and it even has a bizarre-looking car.
For 20 years eccentric Dennis Woodruff has been battling to fulfill his dream of breaking into the movie scene.
The penniless actor was forced to live behind the wheel of his motor as he hawked his portfolio round more than 200 agencies, facing rejection after rejection.
Entrepreneur: Eccentric Dennis Woodruff has become a familiar face on the streets of Los Angeles
He even resorted to making gluing his portfolio pictures and phone number to the outside of the motor to make it a "mobile business card".
But after becoming a familiar face on the streets of Los
Angeles he's revealed he has turned his life around by taking on Hollywood head on.
Mr Woodruff took the extraordinary step of writing, directing and starring in thousands of his OWN movies.
And it has worked. He has now sold a staggering 100,000 of the flicks from the boot of his crazy car.
Mr Woodruff now earns more than earns £250,000 every
year from his movies, which are mostly sold to tourists.
Yet he still chooses to live and work in his caravan just behind the iconic Paramount Studios in Hollywood.

Dennis said the key to his success was hard work and determination.
He said: 'Hard work pays off if you stick to it. I have been at my career for more than 20 years and the rewards have now started pouring in.
'Prosperity is a good thing because it brings more. I probably have everything I ever wanted in life, even more. In fact, I have too much.
'I count my blessings and I am thankful for all my success.
'I believe individuality is important and I'm proud to say that people around the world respond and buy my work.
'I've already sold more than 100,000 movies at ten dollars each and I've only just started.
'There's an overwhelming demand even the big studios want to see my movies now.'
