Yeah, yeah yeah, we know, we’ll do our homework, but… OK, OK, yes we need an education to succeed in life, mom. We get it.

But do we?

That’s what everyone says (and they’re right), but then we look at so many actors and musicians who didn’t do their homework, didn’t drudge to school in two feet of snow uphill both ways, and they turned out just fine. Don’t believe us? Take at a look at these celebrities who never finished high school yet went on to roaring success.

Gosling was, by his own admission, not the best student, but that’s probably because he was diagnosed with ADHD at an early age and his mother took him out of public school for homeschooling. But he found inspiration through film, particularly Dick Tracy, Rambo: First Blood, and emulating Marlon Brando.

Gosling never completed high school, dropping out at 17, and choosing instead to pursue his acting career with several roles in indie films. Seems like a good choice now. We hear the ladies think he’s OK. Just OK, though.
