Celebs You'd Never Guess Knew Each Other In College

Celebrities come from all sorts of backgrounds — often pretty obscure — so you wouldn’t necessarily expect celebs to know one another prior to achieving success.

But this isn’t always the case! Some celebs were friends in college before they ever dreamed of the success they would one day achieve, and some knew each other even earlier than that! Let’s look at some well known stars who were acquaintances, friends, or even lovers early in life. In some sweet cases, they’re every bit as close today as they were back then. These are celebs you’d never guess knew each other in college.

Who are some other celebrities who knew each other before they were famous?

Celebrity culture fascinates us all, and we are always curious to know which famous personalities from the film, music, or television industry are friends, enemies or have any connection at all. However, have you ever wondered if there were celebrities who knew each other before they were celebrities? Even more surprising, what if they started their friendship in college, and we had no idea? Here is a list of celebs that you would never guess knew each other in college.

First on the list is actor, producer, and director Ben Affleck and talk show host, producer, and actress Conan O’Brien. They both attended Harvard University. Although they were never best friends, they did share a few classes and were part of the same campus theatre group. It’s safe to say that Harvard alumni produce some notable celebrities.

Another name on this list is actress and comedian Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and comedian, actor, writer, and director Larry David, who shared a history at Northwestern University. In her memoir, Julia has mentioned how she and Larry worked on their college radio station and shared a similar sense of humor. Later, they both went on to work on the sitcom Seinfeld, where Larry was the co-creator, and Julia played the role of Elaine Benes.

Next on our list is actress and activist Rashida Jones, who went to college with songwriter, singer, rapper, and record producer, Mark Ronson. They both attended Harvard University and, in fact, even dated for a brief period. Mark has also mentioned in interviews that they started their friendship while attending the same classes and sharing a similar interest in music.

Talking about music and college, who would have thought that two of the most popular musicians of all time would share a friendship that started in college? We are talking about Sir Elton John and Freddie Mercury. Both were attending the London-based college West London’s Ealing Art College. They bonded over their love of music and fashion, and their friendship blossomed into something more special. Until Freddie’s unfortunate death, they remained close friends, and Elton even performed at Freddie’s tribute concert.

Last but not least, we have one of the most popular Hollywood actors, Matt Damon, and the legendary talk show host, writer, and comedian, Jimmy Kimmel, who met while attending the same university in Los Angeles. They became friends while participating in college improv shows. Later, Matt appeared on Jimmy’s show several times and even appeared in one of Jimmy’s skits titled ‘I’m F**King Ben Affleck’.

In conclusion, it’s always surprising to learn that famous faces we see on our tv screens or in movies shared a history before their rise to stardom. These celeb friendships that started in college are a reminder that even the most accomplished and successful people started somewhere, and sometimes those beginnings are more ordinary than we think.
