#1. Daniel Radcliffe
Since he did technically graduate from Hogwarts, I guess he isn’t a dropout but I don’t think that diploma is recognized in the United States. However, if he moves down to Mexico it will give him clearance to practice medicine and law!
Marshall Mathers (Eminem) dropped out in the 9th grade after failing it three times. Like my dad always said, “Try, try again. If at first you don’t succeed, give it two more chances then say screw it”. I guess record labels don’t ask for your GED or high school GPA. Eminem has now sold over 90 million records and has more money than an entire school district combined.
#3. Kurt Cobain
In school we learn vital things about relationships and how to deal with different personalities. I learned to avoid women like Courtney Love and it has saved me a lot of money and heartache. Regardless, Kurt left an imprint on the music industry and has made some pretty damn good songs.
#4. Mark Wahlberg
Marky Mark never graduated high school, although he is going back to get his diploma before his kids notice so that they won’t think it is acceptable. School is where I learned a lot of valuable swear words and insults, so I’m not sure where he got that vocabulary in The Departed.
#5. Jim Carrey
I’m not 100% sure if he dropped out or if he was kicked out of every school in America. It doesn’t take much of an imagination to picture Jim Carrey being the class clown and having everyone laughing constantly.
#6. Lil Wayne
After knocking some girl up, Lil Wayne had to drop out and make those child support payments. Good thing he did, too, otherwise he might have never became the self-proclaimed “Best Rapper Alive”. If he had stayed in high school, he would have realized that skateboarding is just a fad that you grow out of, like wearing diapers.
#7. Johnny Depp
Did you know that he actually dropped out to pursue a music career? Wow, talk about failing. I’ve never even heard one of his songs. He also happens to be worth $350 million dollars. He could buy his way into the industry with that kind of cash!
#8. Ryan Gosling
We all know that Ryan was probably too busy fighting off swarms of girls to graduate. He had to take a job playing a gay cowboy just to try to keep the women away (that failed).
