Celebrity Superlatives: See the Titles Given to the Stars by Their Classmates
In high school, sometimes the “Class Clown” looks like a model, and sometimes the girl voted “Most Popular” goes on to charm the world. But every now and then, even the guy voted “Least Likely to Succeed” winds up being a global superstar.
From “Best Dressed” to “Most Likely To End Up In The Electric Chair” — and everything in between — check out the titles some celebrities earned before graduation.
Kim Kardashian: “Most Likely to Meet Her Husband at the Million Man March” and “Most Likely to Lie About Her Ethnicity”
In 1998, Kim graduated from Marymount High School (an all-girls Catholic school in Bel Air), where her classmates gave her not one but two titles: “Most Likely to Meet Her Husband at the Million Man March” and “Most Likely to Lie About Her Ethnicity.”
Oprah Winfrey: “Most Popular”
The Big O graduated from East Nashville High School in Tennessee in 1971, and even back then she was charming everyone she met. She was elected vice president of student government and later named “Most Popular” in her class.
Sylvester Stallone: “Most Likely to End Up in the Electric Chair”
Hard to believe that nice clean-cut young man on the left could be voted anything but “Most Likely to Help Your Grandma Cross the Street,” but in 1961, 15-year-old Sly was named “Most Likely to End Up in the Electric Chair” by either his teachers or fellow students (depending on which source you read).
Blake Lively: “Class Clown”
Lively’s peers in the Class of 2005 at Burbank High School not only voted her class president, they christened her something else you might not expect: “Class Clown.” Which, when you think about it, kinda makes sense for a girl who would one day marry ‘Van Wilder’ star Ryan Reynolds.
Sandra Bullock: “Most Likely to Brighten Your Day”
Before Bullock graduated from Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Va. in 1982, the affable Oscar-winner was a cheerleader (of course) and voted “Most Likely to Brighten Your Day” (of course).
Tom Cruise: “Least Likely to Succeed”
After attending more than a dozen schools in the US and Canada, Tom finally graduated from New Jersey’s Glen Ridge High in 1980, but he’s since said he was “functionally illiterate” at the time. Maybe that’s why his classmates voted him “Least Likely to Succeed.”
Renee Zellweger: “Dream Date”
As a senior at Katy High School in Texas (she graduated in 1987), the eventual ‘Jerry Maguire’ star was a cheerleader, part of the homecoming court, and voted “Dream Date” by her classmates.
Tiger Woods: “Most Likely to Succeed”
It’s no surprise the golf phenom’s fellow graduates at Western High School in Anaheim, Ca. voted him “Most Likely to Succeed” in 1994. (Maybe “Most Likely to Be Chased by an Angry Woman With a Golf Club” wouldn’t fit on the ballot.)
Miranda Lambert: “Most Likely to Be a Famous Singer”
The pint-sized country superstar proved sometimes even kids know talent when they see it — because her classmates at Lindale High School in Texas voted her “Most Likely to Be a Famous Singer” in 1999.
Brad Pitt: “Best Dressed”
Pitt, who graduated from Kickapoo High School in Springfield, Mo. in 1982, must have had more than just striped tees in his closet. At least we hope so, because his fellow seniors voted him “Best Dressed.”
