Sean Penn, Robert Downey Jr., Charlie Sheen, & Rob Lowe all are friends from high school
“Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts
Although she was born in Hawaii, Nicole Kidman moved to Australia at four and later became classmates with Naomi Watts at North Sydney Girls’ High School. The two have been best friends ever since. The duo often acted together and did a little modeling, and as Kidman revealed to CBS’s Harry Smith in 2007, Watts also “”dated my sister’s boyfriend.”” (Which really is so high school.) Then in 1991, Kidman helped Watts get cast in Flirting alongside Thandie Newton and herself. And when Kidman became the first Australian actress to win an Oscar in 2003, one of the first calls she made was to Watts.
Cameron Diaz and Snoop Dogg
While promoting Bad Teacher last year on George Lopez’s talk show, Cameron Diaz revealed that she was no angel as a student at Long Beach Polytechnic High School in California. When Lopez asked whether Diaz knew Snoop Dogg when they both attended the school, she recalled the rap star fondly. “”He was a year older than me…I remember him; he was very tall and skinny. He wore lots of ponytails,”” Diaz confessed. “”And I’m pretty sure I bought weed from him.”” A few months later, when Snoop was a guest, Lopez asked if Diaz’s revelation was true. “”I might have sold her some of that white-girl weed,”” he joked.
Charlie Sheen, Rob Lowe, Robert Downey Jr., and Sean Penn
Talk about a brat pack. In the early 1980s, Rob Lowe, Charlie Sheen, Robert Downey Jr., and Sean Penn were all friends at Santa Monica High School. Also in their crowd? Holly Robinson—and, of course, Emilio Estevez. Lowe wrote about those teenage years in his best-selling autobiography, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, and talked about his old pal Sheen on Access Hollywood last year. “”We went to a big high school, and I can remember Charlie, for some reason, was wearing a bulletproof vest to school because he thought the gangs were going to get him. Charlie has some thoughts—there’s no two ways about it.”” And then Lowe added this somewhat unbelievable memory: “”We were both nerds, man. I am telling you—he wanted to be a baseball player.””
