Going to your high school reunion can be a real gamble. Sure, you may not be happy with your life, but there will always be someone who just plain didn’t accomplish as much as you did or ever will. Yet still somehow, he gets more respect because he caught the winning pass at the Homecoming Game a decade ago, even though you now own a house and he still lives in his cousin Mark’s basement. I mean, come on now.

Then there are the people from your school who “made it.” These folks from your alma mater are famous celebrities now. It’s usually one, but imagine if there were two celebs not only from your school, but they literally passed each other in the halls at the same time! It’s happened.

Here are some of the few celebrities that knew each other from school before they went on to do great/entertaining things.
