But I'm not the only one. Several celebrities also have English degrees from some very prestigious schools so I don't feel so bad for having a near useless education. Of course these people already have millions of dollars because they're actors and therefore have no need of a real degree in order to get a job so.... I guess that is saying something *sigh*
But, on with the list:
1. Chevy Chase- ya I was surprised too. Funny man Chevy got a degree and became a writer for SNL and then quickly started acting as well.
2. James Franco- Most people know this. He got a BA from UCLA an MFA from Columbia and and a PHD from Yale. That's some student loans for you.
3. Diane Sawyer- Makes sense, and one of the only people on this list who actually uses her education. Sort of.
4. Emma Watson- Love her. She's a beauty and loves books. And when she does interviews she is very well spoken and charming. She got all that from her degree, as did I ;-)
Well there you have it, I am in good company, and can't feel all that bad for my wasted days at University. Although if I had taken accounting like I had wanted to I would be raking in a cool 100K a year now. pfft.
As a side note I will tell you all the worst advice I ever received. My dad told me to take something in school that I loved because I would spend 40 years doing it, and I loved books, and writing so I dropped everything else and majored in English. Thanks dad.
