Apparently, Hollywood stars would rather be famous than finish school. Can you believe that people like John Travolta, Jim Carrey, and Charlie Sheen never actually had a proper school prom? It’s weird, isn’t it? Well, let’s see who else followed the trail of money…
1. Jim Carrey
So, as I just told you, Jim Carrey’s on the list. He had a pretty rough childhood, to say the least. His family lived in a van for some time, they needed money, and Jim even worked evenings as a janitor, until his mom got sick. That’s when he decided to leave school and watch over her. The rest is history. When the family moved to Toronto, one thing lead to another and Jim got his first TV role at the age of 18, and thus his grand Hollywood journey had begun.
2. Ryan Gosling
You’ve seen Gosling’s school photos, right? Looks like a normal kid, but… Turns out he was REALLY into Stallone and Rambo. In fact one day Ryan took some sharp knives to school, and started throwing them around during recess. He thought he was in the movie. Weirdly enough, he was not banned that day, but he did leave school a few years later, when he was 17, to start his acting career.
3. Mark Wahlberg
Believe it or not, Mark wanted to become a rapper back when he was a teen, so he dropped out of school. Now, this wasn’t his smartest idea ever, and he did admit that later. What I do know is that he did get his diploma – 25 years later. Better late than never!
