Salma Hayek

As a teenager, Hayek attended a strict Catholic boarding school in Louisiana, but was expelled after two years. This happens after he starts playing pranks on the nuns, such as setting their alarm clocks back three hours.

Robert Pattison

In high school, the actor had a highly developed commercial career. He stole pornographic magazines from kiosks and sold them to his classmates. However, the teachers did not approve of his business and “threw him out” of the school.

Owen Wilson

In the 10th grade, Wilson was expelled from St. Mark’s School in Texas after he was caught copying from his teacher’s textbook on a geometry exam. As punishment, he was sent to a military school to finish the last two years of high school.

Keanu Reeves

Reeves attended four different high schools within five years. In one of the schools, he “didn’t fit in” with the environment. Had many conflicts with teachers and staff, even if it got him into trouble. This eventually led to his expulsion, which he found “very unpleasant”.

Ryan Gosling

The Canadian actor was expelled from school at the age of six. This happens after the young Gosling watches the original Rambo: First Blood movie. He was so impressed by the film that he began emulating the main character by carrying steak knives to school. As a result, Gosling underwent psychological testing and has since been homeschooled.

Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg attended the Cleveland Elementary School for Gifted Children, but was kicked out at age 11. The rapper says, “I got kicked out my sophomore year for showing a little girl my little thing! I was in the lunch line and she said something really crazy to me and I didn’t know how to defend myself so I just unzipped myself.”

Albert Einstein

The future physicist did not enjoy much respect from his teachers, who considered him “slow” in his early years and too rebellious in his teenage years. He often got into trouble because of conflicts with his teachers. Although not excluded, Einstein eventually left school out of frustration and continued his scientific education on his own.


The British singer and songwriter was suspended from school for fighting. Her position in the school was also threatened because of her frequent tardiness and negligence towards the learning process.

Richard Branson

Sir Richard Branson is known as one of the most extravagant businessmen these days. The teachers didn’t like Branson very much, and he didn’t like them back. Already in adulthood, he claimed that due to dyslexia (a disorder of the ability to read and write) he could not successfully cope with the educational material.

Bill Gates

Before he became the man who computerized the entire world, Bill Gates was not the most diligent student. Instead of listening to the teachers, he looked out the window in every lesson. His parents, who could not stand his attitude towards school, threatened to beat him for every bad grade, but this did not motivate the future genius to deal with the information from the textbooks.

Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill’s political fame will not be affected by the fact that he was considered lazy at school and that he studied mediocrely. In the difficult years for Great Britain, he managed to become prime minister twice. In 1953 was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for a historical-biographical work, and in 2002 The BBC ranks him among the most influential Britons in history.

As a man of aristocratic origin, he was always under the influence of the best teachers. But his parents devoted little time to his upbringing and education, and corporal punishment was regularly practiced at school, to which he, as the worst student in the class, was regularly subjected.

Soichiro Honda

Even children know about the legendary Honda motorcycles. Soichiro Honda finished the eight grades of the Japanese school, where he did not shine with knowledge. He then went to Tokyo to work as an auto mechanic. He dedicates his life to motorcycles. He had a long way to go before becoming the author of 150 patents and the owner of the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturing company.

Paul Galvin

If it wasn’t for Paul Galvin, we would never have known about Motorola phones. The company of the same name, which Paul founded with his brother, has ceased to exist, but before that it was a leader in telecommunications and one of the pioneers in the popularization of mobile communication.

Paul Galvin was a bad student not because of a lack of ability, but because of his entrepreneurial spirit. While his classmates attended classes, he sold fast food on the street. Since then, he has repeatedly ventured into business and failed more than once, but this did not prevent him from becoming one of the most remarkable personalities among the doubles.

Donald Trump

The multi-billionaire and now the President of the United States, Donald Trump, in his early years had no particular love for school disciplines and often behaved impudently with the teachers. However, everything changed dramatically at the boarding school of the Military Academy, where he was sent at the age of 13 by parents tired of their careless son. Here he is remembered for his hard-working behavior and exceptional success in sports – Trump successfully played football and baseball.

Harrison Ford

American actor and producer Harrison Ford received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was repeatedly nominated for an Oscar. However, at school he was a modest, quiet boy who did not give high hopes.

Harrison Ford dreamed of becoming an actor. He had few friends, little desire to study, and almost no interests other than cinema. His presence in the college also did not inspire him, but that is why he was interested in acting courses. As a result, we now have dozens of great movies starring him, and Ford himself is living the life he always dreamed of.

Aristotle Onassis

The famous Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis was not a very diligent student. He was repeatedly expelled from school for various reasons – because of poor grades or because of impudent behavior in relation to teachers. But even in his relatively quiet periods, he regularly skipped classes, as if he knew they would never be useful in his life. He began his career as a port dispatcher and ended up as one of the richest ship owners in the world.
