Reddit Asks:People who went to school with celebrities before they were famous. What were they like?

Went to Jr High and High School with Taylor Lautner. Played football together my Freshmen year.
Dude was really nice, and a bit awkward. This was before the whole twilight thing, and he was most famous for Sharkboy and Lavagirl. He seemed pretty much what you expect a theater kid to be like. But really nice dude over all, pretty quiet, played pokemon leaf green together a few times

My mom was close friends with Winona Ryder in high school. She dressed in all black a lot and was made fun of by other kids, but my mom, her and a couple others were a pretty tight group. She said Winona used to eat salad for lunch a lot to diet, and she’d put a ton of dressing on it to the point that it wasn’t even healthy anymore haha. After her movie Heathers she made them go and watch it together. She said she was really sweet, and Winona highlighted her picture in my moms yearbook which was pretty cool to see.

Went to school with Khalid, he was one of those kids that always pretended to be stoned but never smoked, he acted very flamboyant and used that to always be around girls,never made a move on them though, strange fellow.

Tommy Hilfiger, who was basically regarded as a trashy a-hole. He had approximately one hundred siblings and I think they were all kind of that way.

Went to high school with Mac Miller. Dude was fuckin dedicated, he was selling CDs in school and always had posters up and stuff. We weren't really in the same social circles but we had some classes together. He was a goof and a generally good guy. RIP.

Went to highschool with Shawn Mendes. Nice kid, we all used to make fun of him a bit but I guess the jokes on us now. I see him around at parties once and a while, still a nice guy.

My best friend's mom went to college with Wes Anderson and yes, he was a total hipster, but he's this super humble dude. They run into eachother in Dallas every once in a while and he says hi and buys her coffee as if he's not this huge director. Same for Owen Wilson.

My Aunt and Uncle lived next door to Patrick Stewart. He had a terrible childhood. His dad was traumatised during the War like so many were. He changed so much it became untenable and his mum used to send him to relatives to keep him safe. Very sad . He is a lovely man and he keeps in touch with friends he made many years ago.

My sister goes to the same uni (University of Michigan) as Barack Obama’s daughter. My sister had a few interactions with her and said that she’s super nice

I went to school 5th-12th grade with the son of Suzanne Collins (author of the Hunger Games). She came in to my 5th grade class and we all got signed copies of her other book Gregor the Overlander (didn't take off like THG did that's for sure). Her son was super quiet and nerdy, nice kid but just didn't talk. I remember his girlfriend was also a writer and a lot of us were convinced that she was only dating him to get close to his mom.

Jensen Ackles was a well liked theater kid. Berkner High School ftw.

Elementary school with Nick Jonas. There would always be like at least 10 girls at recess who would follow him around to hear him sing. Really sweet kid, kind of quiet and kept to himself if I remember correctly.

Went to school with Justin Bieber. My only memories of him were him trying to act tough and pick fights with kids 4 grades higher than him and making fun of disabled people on the city bus and getting kicked off the bus more than once

Is a terrorist famous? I went to school with Richard Reid the shoe bomber. My mum used to feel sorry for his mum because his dad was a complete bastard (when he wasn't in prison). Cant ever defend what he tried to do, but that kid never stood a chance.


did you got to school with anyone interesting ontd?
