Poll: Did You Go To High School With Someone Famous?

As the 2012 graduating class wraps up their final days of school, it prompts many of us to look back on our days and classmates in high school. Everybody has to start somewhere, even celebrities, and being California chances are many went to school with someone famous!

This morning we asked our listeners if they went to high school with someone who later became famous and to tell us what they were like before becoming a celebrity!

One listener went to school with Tim Burton in Burbank, where even then he had wild hair and loved to sketch and draw. Another listener went to school with a strange Frank Zappa before he became a big rock star.

Even our own Lisa Stanley went to school with Nicolas Cage at Beverly Hills High in the ’70s where she describes him as a “loner” and dressed very Gothic. It happened to be the same time his uncle Francis Ford Coppola won an Oscar for Godfather.

Listeners describe what their now famous classmates were like in high school before they became were in the spotlight:
