We usually assume celebrities all come from different background and all met in Hollywood, but there are a lot of long-standing friendships that predate their fame. Some celebs have known each other since childhood or high school, while others met in college, seemingly right before or as their careers were starting! Here’s a list of 14 celebrities you probably didn’t know met in college!
14. Kristen Bell and Matthew Morrison
Frozen actress Kristen Bell revealed she knew Matthew Morrison in college while they both attended New York University and that they briefly dated! In an interview with US Weekly she commented on the show Glee and said: “I actually went to college with Matty Morrison. We actually dated very briefly, so I’ll have to say maybe Matt Morrison is my favorite part of Glee for various reasons.”
13. Owen Wilson and Wes Anderson
Owen Wilson and film director Wes Anderson were roommates at the University of Texas. As a result, they’ve become really good friends and even collaborated on a few projects! They co-wrote three films, Bottle Rocket, Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums, which were then directed by Anderson. Of course, Wilson also starred in all of these movies and landed roles in other moves that Anderson directed like The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Darjeeling Limited, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and voiced a character in Fantastic Mr. Fox.
