10 Former Friends of Celebrities Spill the Tea on Their Pre-Fame Days

The other day, I was on the internet and found a cool chat. People were talking about meeting famous people before they got famous and how they act now. See what some of the most liked responses are!

Chris D’Elia

One user answered, “I went to the same high school as Chris D’Elia. He was a dork but still arrogant. He worked on the yearbook and gave himself like three or four pages so he could write his fatuous observations and pretend it was comedy. So that hasn’t changed.”

Rachel McAdams

Another user had this to say, “Worked in a restaurant about 15 years ago as a manager. Rachel McAdams walked in for an interview. She was still in acting school and serving tables to pay for it.”

“She worked at my restaurant over the course of the next 2 summers, serving on our patio. Still friends to this day. She hasn’t changed a bit. Still, bikes to get groceries”, she continued.

Gordon Ramsay

BaffledAndBemused responded, “My aunt used to work with Gordon Ramsay’s mother but never made the connection. She said he was so lovely and polite.”

“Plus, my dad has a bunch of Gordon’s old jumpers he didn’t want anymore. Not signed or anything like that. It’s just a fun family story now.” They concluded.  

Joe Keery

Yet another commenter had this to say, “I went to college with Joe Keery, aka Steve Harrington in Stranger Things. He was my college boyfriend’s suitemate and just the nicest guy!”

Zoomborocom added, “Obviously, we can’t know a person’s true nature from their screen presence, but I admit that I would have been shocked to hear that Joe Keery was some kind of a bad guy.”

Tom Hanks

A user answered, “A friend of mine was friends with Tom Hanks in high school and went to prom with him. He still writes her personalized birthday cards on one of his typewriters.”

Another one responded, “I hope one day I’ll be so rich and successful that I can afford multiple typewriters.” We understand the comment considering that Tom is among the richest celebrity couples.

Norah Jones

Someone said, “I went to Junior High with Norah Jones. She was the most sincere and serene person. She was fun to talk to, and she never gave a hint of who her father was.”

Another user claimed, “I believe this. I’ve met her twice after her shows, and she was super nice and took pictures and signed autographs.”

Rupert Grint

Rubert Grint Celebrity Ron from Harry Potter MSN

One person wrote, “Went to school with Rupert Grint (Who acted as Ron Weasley from Harry Potter). I was into acting, too, so we had done a few schools play together. He was really nice, very chill, a good laugh.”

Another user said, “Rupert loved what he was doing but didn’t care about being famous and having people adore him. Just a nice normal kid.” 

Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton Celebrity MSN

A user had this to say, “I live in the town where Dolly Parton grew up, and practically everyone above the age of 50 who grew up here claims to either be a distant relative of Dolly’s, or they claim to know her in some way.”

He continued, “It’s pretty obvious, but regardless of who you talk to, Dolly has always been sweet and generous, but everything has simply grown exponentially due to her fame.”

Steve Harvey

Steve Harvey MSN

Another user replied, “My mom used to ride the bus to work in downtown Cleveland with Steve Harvey’s first wife. Apparently, she supported him while he was trying to get his career started. And then basically as soon as he got successful, he divorced her for a younger woman.”

“My mom always hated him because she felt that he treated his first wife like [garbage] and always yells “b*stard!” at the TV when he pops up,” she concluded.

Queen Latifah

Dana Elaine Owens, Queen Latifah Celebrity MSN

Someone responded, “My coworker’s dad grew up with Queen Latifah in North Jersey. His whole family loves her because they were about to lose their house, so she paid it off for them.”

A user responded,” People laugh when I tell them she’s my #1 celebrity crush. My wife is a very petite Caucasian blonde, and she always jokes that I went the exact opposite direction.”
