Johnny Depp: 16-Year-Old Drop-Out
It may not be a surprise to learn that A-lister Johnny Depp dropped out of high school at 16 years old — but did you know it was to pursue a career in music and not acting? It wasn’t until his buddy Nicolas Cage encouraged him to act that he decided to tackle Hollywood!
Of his short-lived high school experience, Johnny reveals, "I'd been in high school three years, and I may have just walked in yesterday. I had, like, eight credits. I was in my third year of high school and I didn't want to be there. I was bored out of my mind and I hated it."
