It’s no secret that actors hang out in the same circles, but some of them have met before they rose to fame. Cameron Diaz and Snoop Dogg were teammates in high school in California, while Adam Levine and Jonah Hill met in elementary school.
Many actors knew each other well before they became popular because of just a single reason: they attended the same high school. When their names were still unknown, these artists, actors, and politicians shared classes, had the same professors, and took their tests next to each other. Some of them have been close friends to this day. As with the others, we’re having trouble imagining them all together.
- Cameroon Diaz and Snoop Dog
Cameron Diaz and Snoop Dogg both attended California’s Long Beach Polytechnic School. “He was a year my senior. I recall him. The actress from The Mask described him as “very tall and skinny.” The rapper also stated that he used to hang out with the actress’ cheerleader buddies back in the day.
- Justin Trudeau and Matthew Perry
While Matthew Perry was born in the United States, he grew up in Ottawa. For 15 years, his mother served as the secretary to Canada’s prime minister, Pierre Trudeau. It’s no surprise that the Friends star went to school with Justin Trudeau, the politician’s son and the country’s new leader.
- Robert Downey Jr., Charlie Sheen, and Sean Penn
In the early 1980s, a famous group of young actors was featured in a variety of teen films. Robert Downey Jr., Sean Penn, and Emilio Estevez were among the participants who had previously worked together at Santa Monica High School. Emilio Estevez’s brother Charlie Sheen and Rob Lowe were among the many celebrities who attended the school.
- Prince William, Eddie Redmayne, and Tom Hiddleston
Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne were mates at Eton College, an English boarding school for boys, and were born less than a year apart. Prince William shared classrooms and rugby practice with the actors who played Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Stephen Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything, respectively.
