There’s this perception that quite a handful of the superstar celebrities making millions of dollars from their talents have poor educational backgrounds.

The widely held notion is that if they did not drop out of school or were troublemakers, who were constantly reprimanded, they always finished at the bottom of their class.

This overly generalized notion is, however, not entirely true. Inasmuch as there are inspirational “from nothing stories” which includes some of our favorite celebrities having to part ways with school either willingly or due to circumstances beyond their control to pursue their dreams, there are also others who made it a point to remain in school up to a certain level.
