8:56 am 30 Nov, 2013

probably because they were too smart for college. There are people who advocate that a college degree is really important, while there are some brilliant few who consider it just another piece of paper. Something similar is the case in the movie industry. While there are stars that are highly educated, there are a few celebrities who have put education on the back seat and have chased their acting dream into reality. With the desire and passion to make it big in the movie industry, some stars managed to shine without having made it to their graduation day. Let us head down to have a look at the few amazing actors who didn’t attend college, but went on to become the hottest celebrities in the Bollywood and Hollywood.

7. Aamir Khan:

We know him as the Mr. Perfectionist in the Bollywood. Being the perfectionist that he is in public appearances and movies, we can guess that he must be well educated. Sadly though, Aamir was a weak student right from school. Right from his childhood the actor always had sports and dramatics as his first priorities. He never liked studying and every fiber of his body screamed of acting. The result was that Aamir never went to college, but became the superstar that we know.

6. Salman Khan:

The 47 year old Salman Khan is the most eligible bachelor in Bollywood. But to everyone’s surprise, the superstar doesn’t have a bachelor’s degree to show. Having studied at the prestigious Scindia School in Gawlior and later at the Stanislaus High School in Bandra, Mumbai, Sallu bhai did go to college, he unfortunately never made it to the graduation day, but became the star like none other in Bollywood.

5. Clint Eastwood:

Clint Eastwood had a pretty nomadic life during his childhood years, since his parents moved a lot. He was forced to study in various schools and perhaps a reason he never liked studying. Eastwood’s acting career began at high school, where he acted for the first time, and swore never to do it again. Later however, with disinterest in studies, Eastwood got into acting and rest is history.

4. Tom Hanks:

There is hardly anyone I have known who is unfamiliar with Tom Hanks’ acting abilities. He is by far the best actor we know and there are many actors out there who want to be like Forest Gump. But one thing that not all them want to do, but Hanks did, is drop out of school. Hanks did attend California State University, but dropped out soon after to intern for a career in theater.

3. Harrison Ford:

There is no answer to the question how awesome Harrison Ford is at dancing? But there is an answer to when he first felt a liking for acting. It was in one of the drama classes in college that Ford realized he was made for acting. What happened next is no surprise, Harrison Ford dropped out and went on to become the number one in Empire’s “The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time” list in 1997.

2. Johnny Depp:

Captain Jack Sparrow is as awesome as an actor can get. But when it comes to his education, Johnny Depp dropped out of school to become a rock musician. Yes, right a rock musician. At age 13 Depp was playing guitar in a band called The Flame. He dropped out of school to focus on music, but soon realized the whole thing was actually stupid for him. He then joined a film academy, which too he dropped out off very shortly, to focus on acting. Yes! And what happened next is for everyone to see.

1. Leonardo DiCaprio:

You may remember him for his role in the Titanic, but for me the young Leonardo has never been better than he was in the Basketball Diaries. Women have fallen for the dreamy eyed boy every since he appeared on screen; however there are some things that we know little about him. Leonardo Di Caprio considered himself too cool for high school (pun intended) so he dropped out before getting there. Though, details on when are scanty. He is then reported to have joined a local drama center, where he staged his first plays and learnt how to act.
