1.Lauryn Hill and Zach Braff

Lauryn Hill and Zach Braff were high school friends. Back in the 1990s, the songstress and the actor attended Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey together. Unlike some celebs, who didn't know one speak to one another, these two actually hung out. Braff revealed to Jane magazine that the Fugees singer came to his bar mitzvah. He said, "Lauryn Hill did go to my bar mitzvah."There was a game called Coke and Pepsi. You'd have a partner, and one person was Coke and the other Pepsi. Depending on what the DJ would yell, you had to run and get on that person's lap. And Lauryn was my Coke and Pepsi partner."

2.Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes

Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes don't just have their love for rap music in common. The two have been battling one another since they were teens. The emcees both attended George Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School in Brooklyn, New York. The pair even had a rap battle once, but sadly Rhymes lost after he spit just one rap.

3.John Cusack and Jeremy Piven

Jeremy Piven and John Cusack used to be thick as thieves. Not only did the actors grow up in the same town, but they attended the same high school. In the 1980s, the duo attended Evanston Township High School in Evanston, Illinois. They eventually decided to live together and later attended the same theatre workshop.

4.Lady Gaga and Nicky Hilton

Heiress Nicky Hilton knew Lady Gaga before all the fame, name-changing and costumes. The Ladies were classmates at the Convent of the Sacred Heart in New York City, which is a very well-known private all-girl, Roman Catholic school. Hilton just turned 30, while Gaga is only 27 years of age.

5.David Duchovny and John F. Kennedy Jr.

David Duchovny went to high school with one of the most distinguished men there ever was. The actor became best friends with the late John F. Kennedy Jr. In the late 1970s, the pair attended the Collegiate School for Boys in Manhattan, New York. They also attended the school with actor Jason Beghe, who now stars with Duchovny on the television show, Californication.

6.Cameron Diaz and Snoop Dog (Lion)

Cameron Diaz knew Snoop Dogg when he was still going by Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. The actress and the rapper both attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School many moons ago. Diaz recalled her time with Snoop Dogg during an interview once. She said, "He was a year older than me...I remember him; he was very tall and skinny. He wore lots of ponytails. And I'm pretty sure I bought weed from him."

7.Freddie Prinze Jr. and Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris might have been a child star, but he still went to school like us regular folks. The actor attended La Cueva High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This coincided with the filming of his classic show, Doogie Howser, M.D. Actor Freddie Prinze Jr., who was unknown at the time, was three years behind Harris at the same high school.


8.Jennifer Aniston and Chaz Bono

When reality star Chaz Bono was still known as Chastity, he and actress Jennifer Aniston were chummy. Apparently, the duo used to hang out together when they both attended New York City's High School of Performing Arts. Both have since changed their appearances so much, they probably don't even recognize one another.

9.Charlie Sheen, Rob Lowe, Robert Downey Jr., and Sean Penn

All four of these men are great actors, so Santa Monica High School must have done something right. In the 1980s, Robert Downey Jr., Charlie Sheen, Rob Lowe, and Sean Penn were all friends when they attended the California school. During an interview with Access Hollywood, Lowe spoke candidly about his friendship with Sheen while they were there. He said, "We went to a big high school, and I can remember Charlie, for some reason, was wearing a bulletproof vest to school because he thought the gangs were going to get him. Sean Penn, who is 53-years-old, is the oldest of the four men.


10.Kevin Spacey and Val Kilmer

They come from the same humble beginnings, but they have yet to do a movie together. Kevin Spacey and Val Kilmer both acted together during their years at Chatsworth High School in California. Kilmer has said in the past thatSpacey is "proof that you can learn how to act. Because he was horrible when he first started, and now he's so good." Both actors will be 54-years-old by the end of 2013.

11.Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts

Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts are two of Hollywood's most well-known best friends. Their BFF friendship stems from their high school days. The actresses attended the North Sydney Girls' High School together while they were both still living in Australia. Kidman is 46-years-old and Watts is 45-years-old, so depending on when they were admitted, the pair could have been in the same class.


12.Barbara Streisand and Neil Diamond

In the 1950s legendary singers Neil Diamond and Barbara Streisand both attended Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, New York. They never interacted with one another during their years of attendance. The pair didn't build a friendship until they collaborated on the song, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers (Anymore)" in 1978.
