Former Classmates Reveal What Celebrities Were Like At School Before Fame

I have gone to school with 1 semi-famous person who did go on tour for singing. No crazy stories. I wish I went to school with like Mia Khalifa and knew someone that banged her. That would be a story I could tell all the time!

The people of Reddit have done everything, including going to school with famous people:

Chad Michael Murray went to my HS, he’s always been a douche

Had a family friend who went to high school with Ariana Grande. She was a bitch just like she is now.


Another one said: Currently go to the same school Ariana Grande graduated from. I know a lot of people who were in classes with her, and my sister was in the grade above her. One of my friends said she was a real obnoxious bitch, and apparently bullied some other kid on the bus. In one of my yearbooks, though, she has a page in the back, which I guess is kinda cool.

Floyd Mayweather. Small. parents were crazy drug dealers. He stuck close to his small group. Didn’t come very often. Academically, dumb as a post.

Went to high school with Blake Lively. Had a few classes with her throughout 3 years. She was also my TA for one of them. She was pretty cool. I always ended up seated next to her so it became kind of a running joke through the years. She seemed down to earth and not stuck up. I dated one of her friends for a couple of months.

I actually went to the same highschool as Micheal Cera, totally chill guy was really quiet in person.

Went to high school with Mia Khalifa in Maryland, she was on the lacrosse team and seemed like a chill girl. Update: No i never saw her being a slut…


I graduated with Shawn Mendes last year. When he started picking up fame, we sat together in math and he was always nice. I spoke to him once at graduation after that. But he’s always been grateful and down to earth

Very late to this conversation.. but I was roommates with Emily Ratajkowski for a 5 week art program. It was in San Francisco, I was 17 and she was 16, we shared a bunk bed and dorm room. She was nice, a great artist, kind of valley girl-ish, but pretty down to earth actually, very pretty girl. She actually had kind of a tough time making friends within the program, like she wasn’t interested in doing so. She had a skate rat boyfriend from back home that came to SF during the program, so she kind of just did her own thing with him all the time.. We had a conversation once where she said she couldn’t really decide whether she wanted to pursue modeling or art. She was doing some modeling in those days, I think like Forever 21 or something, but her dad is an art teacher so she grew up making art… Anyway, guess she chose modeling. Totally weird now that she’s a big model and sex icon. I see her face all over ads and shit, and I was barely a blip on her radar.

I was on the same little league team as Tony Hawk when I was 14, we used to sing devo songs together in the dugout. He wasn’t terribly committed to baseball and my father (one of the coaches) made a comment to him along the lines of “chosing either baseball or skateboarding to focus on”. He turned in his uniform the next day. Pretty cool guy overall, only negative thing I can say about him is another friend of mine drew the hawk for the very first deck he released and was promised a board as compensation, which he never received. He moved to Carlsbad (and eventual fame) the next year and I never saw him again

I went to school with Dwayne The Rock Johnson at Freedom HS in Bethlehem, and he was actually a really nice guy when he transferred during Junior Year, but then he was just a huge douche to everyone because he made it big on our football team, but he’s still true to our tradition, which is to Hate Easton

My cousin went to laguardia high school in NY with nicki minaj and they almost got into a fight with each other
