Which celebrity attended Harvard at the same time as me? Among the many Harvard alums, which of these was your roommate? You might be surprised to find out that some famous people went to school at the same time as you. Mark Zuckerberg, for example, dropped out of Harvard for a couple of years to focus on his website, but he ended up getting an honorary degree from the university. Interestingly enough, Katie Holmes (the former wife of Tom Cruz) also attended Harvard, graduating from the Business Of Entertainment, Media and Sports program.
Did you know that Tommy Lee Jones, who played DEA agent Hank on the popular television series “Breaking Bad,” went to Harvard University? He earned his Bachelor’s degree in English, played varsity football, and wrote a thesis about the mechanics of Catholicism. While most celebrities attend Harvard with a high school diploma, some thought that going to college would help their careers in the long run. The famous actresses Natalie Portman and Tommy Lee Jones both attended Harvard.
Some famous alumni of Harvard include Bill Gates, who dropped out of Harvard in 1975 to pursue his career as an actor. Some students were expelled for inappropriate behavior or unsavory conduct, but others were kicked out for reasons as legitimate as a lack of interest. A famous poet dropped out of Harvard during his sophomore year, but his son later attended Harvard on a scholarship, although his interest in the program was not as strong as that of his father.
