"My dad interned with Tom Hanks when he first started out at the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival. He was always very kind and charismatic with everyone, and just a constant ball of energy. When his son Colin was born, he proudly showed him off to everybody. he was probably just days old."
"My uncle went to college with John Cena. He said he would walk down the dorm halls naked."
"My dad grew up in Massapequa (town on Long Island) and was best friends in elementary through High School with Jerry Seinfeld. Jerry would often jokingly call my dad the “second funniest kid in school” (of course referring to himself as the funniest)."
"Late to the party, but I knew Billie Joe Armstrong and the Green Day guys (and the Rancid guys) in their early times from my punk rock days. I did not know them well, but they were the nicest guys ever.
I was standing in line with some friends at one of their sold out shows, and Billie Joe darted out, ran up to us and said, “What are you guys doing standing in line when there’s equipment to be brought in? Don’t be silly.” He then brought us back to their van and gave us each a cymbal, a bass drum pedal, etc. something little we could each carry in and jump the line as “roadies,” since we were old pals from early on.
I ran into him backstage years later at a Weezer show. Again, I hadn’t known them well, but knew them a bit before they were famous. Billie Joe came up to me, addresses me by name, and we had a nice chat.
Success couldn’t have come to a group of more deserving guys."
"My dad went to college with Stephen Fry. Said he was one of the funniest dudes he ever met"
"Mike Myers went to a high school down the street from mine. We hung out with the same people.
Charmingly funny and very humble. I haven’t seen him for a very long time, but I do watch his interviews and he seems to be the same guy he was. I always loved it when he came on the TV wearing a Toronto Maple Leaf Jersey."
"I went to high school with Jon Heder, was a friendly guy, kinda goofy. When Napoleon Dynamite came out and became a craze, I couldn’t believe it was him."
"My mom went to college with Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul guy). They were in the radio department together and apparently he was super funny. They also took shrooms together and I’ve been jealous of my mom ever since I heard that story."
"Don’t know if this counts but I went to the same jr high and high school as Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester in Supernatural). All the teachers would talk about how nice he was and how he was going to make it big (think he was already a regular on a soap opera by then). I finally saw him when I was in tech theatre, he had come to see his sister in a high school play. He stayed to the end and looked so proud of her."
"My old roommate went to high school with Jake and Logan Paul. He said it was when they were starting to get big on vine, they started turning into complete @$$holes. So nothing has changed."
"Not me but my father went to high school with Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn from LOTR). He said he was a really nice guy from the couple times he met him, and that he totally understands how he went on to save Middle Earth."
"Not a friend, but I knew Henry Cavill when he was a kid. He was sweet and reliable and generally a very nice person. Haven’t seen him since around the era when he was taking roles in films like Hellraiser VIII because working as an actor isn’t easy."
"I went to school with Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark). She was a couple of years below me, but I was in a few plays with her. She was just an average girl tbh, in every way. Really normal, didn’t really stand out, but wasn’t quiet or shy either. She never got the big parts in plays and wasn’t even considered to be one of the ‘good’ actors at our school, was always just a part of the chorus. Was quite surprised to hear she got a major part in a TV drama, seemed to come out of nowhere."
"Knew Ryan Lochte. Not much changed since he was a kid. Swims fast, thinks slow. I view him now as a teenager’s mind in a middle-aged man’s body, still doing things that don’t make much sense"
"I was best friends with Post Malone in high school, and he’s pretty much the same person he was then in high school that he is now, just some more wild adventures, but his personality has been that same, and it’s nice to see, with the fame and money he stayed who he is. Fun fact; he use to be an indie music guy in high school, wore Hawaiian V necks, high water tight black jeans, and toms. Coolest, chilliest, and funniest dude you could of hung out with."
"Taylor Lautner would get mad when people called him Sharkboy in high school.
Can’t say I blame him"
"Went to high school with Neil Patrick Harris. He wasn’t a bad dude, but wasn’t humble in the least. He was still working on Doogie Howser. When he was at school, he wasn’t allowed to be himself, surrounded by fans and others. He had the nickname of Drama Dork by some of the other cliques. He hasn’t gone to one of the reunions."
"Not me, but my aunt. She knew Snoop during highschool, and at the time everyone there were getting into colors. She decided to join in, tied a bandana to her arm. Later in the day he took it from her, without a word. Turns out that people wearing her color were being hunted down.
Overall, pretty cool dude. I hear he hasn’t changed much."
"My Great Grandma (still alive) lived close to Elvis’ home, they talked like 3 times, she literally thought he was the most annoying little s@#t"
"I went to high school with Pink. I was kind of shy but a lot of my friends were better friends with her. She was alright. I remember her singing to herself a lot."
