The three young stars all attended New York City’s La Guardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts.
Since high school, Elgort and Chalamet have gone on to star in major movies like “Baby Driver” and “Call Me by Your Name.” Even though their school days are over, the two remain good friends.
“It’s really crazy, Timmy and I played on the same basketball team, we had the same drama teacher, Mr. Shifman, we had the same science teacher, Mr. Singh, and then in the same year, both of us are nominated for a f$&king Golden Globe!!! Living the dream sitting courtside at the Knicks game together. Life is crazy. Congrats to you Timmy,” Elgort wrote on Instagram in December 2017.
“No one disliked Timmy,” Elgort added during an interview with MTV. “Some people disliked me.”
While at La Guardia, Chalamet also met Leon (Madonna’s daughter) and dated her. It’s unclear how long they were a couple for, by Chalamet seemed flustered when Andy Cohen questioned him about the relationship during an interview.
Kelly Preston and Barack Obama
Actress Kelly Preston and former president Barack Obama were both born in Hawaii, so it’s not surprising that they attended the same high school.
Preston and Obama graduated from Punahou High School, but they didn’t know each other at the time.
During an interview on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Preston explained that she “was living in Australia when he was at school.” When she later reconnected with him, he said: “I saw you around campus.”
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
Damon and Affleck have been friends for decades, and attended Boston’s Cambridge Rindge and Latin School together. The Massachusetts natives went on to write the screenplay for the Oscar-winning movie “Good Will Hunting” and have high-profile careers in Hollywood.
Lenny Kravitz, Nicolas Cage, and Slash
Kravitz, Cage, and Slash were all students at Beverly Hills High School in the ’80s. After graduating, Kravitz went on to pursue music and acting. Cage also stepped into acting and won an Oscar, while Slash received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Kerry Washington and Gwyneth Paltrow
Washington and Paltrow are award-winning actors and they knew each other before becoming A-listers.
During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel in 2014, Washington revealed that Paltrow was the leader of Spence School’s a capella school group called Triple Trio.
“When I was in junior high school I really wanted to be in Triple Trio because there was this really amazing senior named Gwyneth Paltrow and she was president of Triple Trio,” Washington said. “So I really wanted to be president of Triple Trio one day. And then I was co-president of Triple Trio one day. My shining honor!”
