Plus, her hair stands tall, really giving us a glimpse into 80s fashion. When Roberts was in high school, she played the clarinet in her school band. You would expect her to have been the center of attention throughout school, but she stated that she just “coasted” by during that time. It’s hard to believe that the actress would have been anything less than spectacular back then!

  • Year: 1992
  • Where: Pittsfield High School, Massachusetts

Elizabeth Banks was born and raised in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. While in high school, she was very athletic until she accidentally fractured her leg during a softball game. Once she had to sit out due to her injury, she developed her love of acting. Since then, she had moved to New York City to pursue her career. Her first big role was on Surrender Dorothy. Bank’s real last name is Mitchell, but she changed it soon after moving to L.A. because another actress had the same name. After changing her name and attending numerous auditions, she landed a role in the movie Spiderman, which led to her landing many other roles.

Taylor Lautner attended Valencia high school until his sophomore year, when he had to transition solely to homeschooling due to the advancement of his career. While Lautner was in junior high, he was voted to have the “best smile” by his classmates. We definitely think that’s true!

Although Harry Styles did attend his high school prom, he was not able to graduate due to the fact that his career had already taken off. Styles did want to attend college, though, where he wanted to become a physical therapist. Sadly for the artist, he did not get that chance. (But lucky for us!)
