Where Did Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jonah Hill And The Other Oscar Nominees Go To College?

Posted: Updated:

Before Hollywood actors were nominated for an Academy Award, they were normal people with somewhat normal lives.

George Clooney and Brad Pitt both majored in journalism before deciding they wanted to be actors. Rooney Mara and Jonah Hill both discovered they wanted to go into acting while going to college in the Big Apple.

These actors have made the cut as nominees for Oscars at the 2012 Academy Awards, and we took a look back at what they did after high school. We found a few who transferred around, some who didn't graduate, and one nominee who discovered he wanted to act while serving in the military.
