Celebrities You Never Knew Attended the Same School

Published

on

“Most of us dread the thought of our high school days. For me, it’s awkward memories filled with braces and embarrassing stories. I have trouble remembering a large portion of my classmates, but if I had celebrity classmates, you can bet your bottom dollar I would remember them. What I gather from reading celebrity blind items is that Hollywood is a weird incestuous place where everybody knows each other. And often times, celebrities knew each other before they become famous. Like, a bunch of them even went to the same high schools. So random. Here is a list of the most famous celebrity classmates.

1. Nicky Hilton and Lady Gaga

Back when Lady Gaga was just Stephani, she and Nicky Hilton attended Convent of the Sacred Heart, an all-girls private Catholic school in NYC. Although Paris also went to the same school, Gaga didn’t see much of her since she was older. This duo just goes to show you that even though two girls started at the same school, they ended up in the public eye in very different ways.

2. Cameron Diaz and Snoop Dogg

The two attended Long Beach Polytechnic High school in California. Back in the day, Snoop was known as Calvin Broadus, but according to Diaz, he looked very similar. She has said, “He was a year older than me… I remember him, he was very tall and skinny. He wore lots of ponytails.” She is also “pretty sure” she bought weed from him. Some things never change.

3. Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman

Not only did these two successful actors go to high school together, but they have remained friends. The two attended North Sydney Girls’ High School, an all girl’s high school in Sydney’s north shore.

4. Eddie Redmayne and Prince William

The two men attended Eton, an all-boys boarding school in England. This school is considered to be rather pretentious prestigious, costing about $46,780.80 per year. Wow. But hey, the next king and an Oscar winner deserve nothing but the best, right?

5. Sean Penn, Robert Downey Jr., Rob Lowe, and Charlie Sheen

There is clearly something in the water at this high school. These four men attended Santa Monica High School in the 1980s. Although Penn and Lowe were the only two of the four to graduate, you can’t deny that this school fostered some well-known names. For those wondering, Downey Jr. dropped out and Sheen was kicked out just a few weeks prior to graduation. Neither of those facts surprise me.

6. Liv Tyler, Kate Hudson, and Zooey Deschanel

The three attended Crossroads High School in Santa Monica. As children of celebrities, Tyler and Hudson had a lot in common and became friends growing up. Deschanel and Hudson acted in the school’s production of Don Quixote. Who would have thought the two would then go on to star in Almost Famous together? (Yes, Zooey was in it, IMDB it if you don’t believe me.) Hmm. The more you know……………………………………………….”

Keanu Reeves: Grief and loss, those things dont ever go away

Published

on

From Bill & Teds excellent dude to assassin John Wick, the actor has carved out a stellar career. But it hasnt come without personal tragedy

“Hey, Im Keanu, he introduces himself unnecessarily, of course, and yet very Keanu-ishly. Despite being so famous his surname has long been superfluous, Keanu Reeves has always given the impression of being utterly unaffected by his own celebrity. He is regularly described by his co-stars as kind (Winona Ryder) and humble (Laurence Fishburne) and it is easier to imagine him walking on the moon than knocking back champagne with other celebrities on a yacht in St Barts. After all, the most famous paparazzi photo ever taken of Reeves was of him sitting alone on a bench, eating a sandwich out of a plastic bag. Hard to imagine Leonardo DiCaprio doing that.

Ill sit anywhere you want me to. This OK? he says, taking a chair and offering me the sofa in the London hotel room where we meet. At just over 6ft, he is taller than I expected also unusual for an actor and dressed in a very Keanu outfit of dark shirt and trousers with sturdy boots. Despite being recently announced as the new face of the high fashion label Saint Laurent, Reeves has long been the patron saint of normcore, decades before it became a fashion statement. And I know this all too well because, from 199199, I had at least five posters of him on my bedroom walls modelling said look.

Should one ever meet ones teenage crush? Up until this week, Id assumed I was long past the point of being starstruck Im a 40-year-old woman, for Gods sake! But now here I am, sitting opposite Reeves, now 54, the beard more grizzled than in my posters and the forehead suspiciously smooth, but still, most definitely Keanu………………………………………………………………………”

George Clooney is done with ‘dumbf**kery’ in this PSA

Published

on

“In light of the UN’s dire warning about the Earth’s accelerating extinction rate, George Clooney has stepped up for a PSA against people and their “dumbfuckery.”

“Dumbfuckery is highly contagious, affecting the minds of even the most stable geniuses,” the actor joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night.

Focusing his attention on climate change, vaccinations, and the dinosaurs, it’s the kind of reminder that we shouldn’t need — but unfortunately do.”

Barbra Streisand And Kris Kristofferson Have ‘A Star Is Born’ Reunion

Published

on

They’re evergreen in their own way, and they still rock.

Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, co-stars in the 1976 version of “A Star Is Born,” reunited and Babs posted the photo evidence on Wednesday with a hint at something to come.

“It was so wonderful to see my friend Kris who stopped by yesterday. Stay tuned…” Streisand wrote.

Streisand, now 76, played aspiring singer Esther Hoffman, and Kristofferson, 82, was John Norman Howard, the has-been rocker who falls for her.

Like her 2018 “A Star Is Born” counterpart Lady Gaga, who took home the Oscar in February for best original song with “Shallow,” Streisand won in the same category with “Evergreen.”

Streisand and Kristofferson have reunited from time to time, E! News pointed out. They co-presented at the 2011 Grammy Awards, and they appeared together in 2013 at the Chaplin Award Gala honoring Streisand.

Like the song says, two lights that shine as one.
