A High School Diploma Wasn't Needed For These 24 Wildly Successful Actors Who Dropped Out Of School!

People often stress the importance of getting a high school diploma.

For many of these actors, not having a high school degree changed their life — for the better!

For instance, Mark Wahlberg, who has starred in some pretty big hits like The Departed and The Italian Job, never made it past his freshman year in high school.

Or Seth Rogen, who dropped out of high school to pursue a career in comedy and acting.

One of his first gigs was a role in Judd Apatow's Freaks and Geeks!

While this is in no way, shape, or form an endorsement to drop out of school and pursue a career in showbiz, it is pretty incredible that all these A-Listers were able to achieve success without having to complete high school!

    Not that this is awesome….but could you now post 24 wildly successful actors who got their college diplomas..the chances of someone making it in this business is so slim please try to emphasize to young people that they should go on and get their diploma's.

    Once again, you all do not fact check….Bill Cosby may have gone into the service, but he graduated from high school through correspondence and has a doctorate. This post, just like many others, contains too many errors. I think the folks at perezhilton should go back to school (assuming they went a day in the first place)….Learn how to do research and basic grammar! Do you ever see that red line that appears under words? That means you misspelled the word.

    Clearly they were really lucky.. otherwise you should clarify that the lack of a diploma isn´t the reasson why they´ve achieve success…Young pp who idolize these actors:DONT EVER QUICK SCHOOL. Even if you want to try acting you must keep studing so you´ll have a backup just in case..
