24 Stars You Had No Idea Were Roommates

Whether we had the time of our lives or the experience was the stuff of nightmares, we never forget the people we’ve called our roommates. The same is true for celebrities, who, believe it or not, were once regular people with a financial need to share living expenses.

Most of the pairings or trios on this list were living together when they were just starting out in showbiz. A few of them were already famous but there were special circumstances that led to them sharing a residence. In some cases, living together allowed them to support each other in their fledgling career, and cemented a lifelong bond between them. In other cases, it ended their friendships and marked the start of a bitter rivalry.

Which famous actors always left dirty dishes in the sink? Which star stole a script and subsequently an Oscar-winning job from their so-called best friend? What celebrity paid rent but almost never slept in the apartment? Who was the famous avant-garde director who kicked out his roommate for being too weird? Which teen heartthrobs would compete to see who could go the longest without showering?

Find out all this and more on our list of 24 celebrities you had no idea were roommates!

18 Actors You Didn’t Know Overcame Learning Disabilities

It often seems like the stars lead carefree lives, but they’re more susceptible to human foibles than you might think. Despite the associated shame, learning disabilities are an extremely common occurrence all over the world, and Hollywood is no exception. A reported 2.4 million students have been diagnosed with some form of learning disability.

This list of A-List actors is but a handful of the stars that refused to let a learning disability keep them from realizing their dreams. Among the conditions represented here are Dyslexia (affecting reading, writing, and information processing), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (inhibiting focus and behavior control), and Dyspraxia (causing coordination and language problems).

Despite their prevalence, learning disabilities can feel insurmountable. The lack of support can cause feelings of inadequacy, and hopelessness. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With the help of organizations, tutors, and sometimes in-school resources, LD children can become thriving adults.

In fact, many of these actors credit their brain chemistry for their success. Some even refer to their diagnoses as “a gift”. Perhaps these so-called disabilities only seem that way because society, and particularly the education system, isn’t set up to deal with the brains of these special thinkers.
