Surprising! Celebs Who You Didn’t Know Had a Master’s Degree
When it comes to celebrities, we often associate them with glitz, glamour, and blockbuster movies. But did you know that some of your favorite stars also have impressive academic credentials to boast about? From the stages of rock concerts to the sets of award-winning films, these celebrities have rocked the classroom as they have the big screen.
Let’s dive into the fascinating world of celebs who boast Master’s degrees.
Shaq O’Neal: Business Administration
From dunking basketballs to diving into business, Shaquille O’Neal, or ‘Shaq’ as he is fondly known, is a force to be reckoned with. The NBA legend pursued a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Phoenix.
He has always emphasized the importance of education. Thus, proving that the court is not the only place he shines.
Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean): MSc in Electrical Engineering
That is right. The man who has tickled our funny bones for years with his endearing antics as Mr. Bean is a master in Electrical Engineering. Rowan Atkinson pursued his MSc from The Queen’s College, Oxford.
Can you imagine Mr. Bean in a lab, tinkering with circuits? Talk about a scene we would love to watch!
Brian May: Astrophysics
The legendary Queen guitarist, famous for hits like “We Will Rock You” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” is also a master in Astrophysics. Brian May completed his PhD (a step above a Master’s!) from Imperial College London.
His thesis was on zodiacal light, the faint glow in the night sky, observable from Earth. So, while he rocked the world with his guitar, he also kept his eyes on the stars.
Christy Turlington: Public Health
Supermodel Christy Turlington, who has graced the covers of countless fashion magazines, took a turn towards academia after a successful modeling career. She holds a Master’s in Public Health from Columbia University.
Her passion for maternal health led her to direct a documentary on the subject and advocate for better healthcare for mothers everywhere. Beauty with brains and a cause!
Gerard Butler: Law
Before Gerard Butler was the fierce King Leonidas in “300” or the charming lead in romantic comedies, he trod the halls of the University of Glasgow, where he studied law.
Yes! That is right. Butler holds a degree in Law and even worked at a law firm before realizing his true calling in acting. Can you picture him in a courtroom?
These celebrities challenge the stereotype that Hollywood is all about beauty without brains. Their Master’s degrees stand as a testament to their commitment to personal growth, intellectual pursuits, and diverse talents.
So, the next time you feel like binge-watching your favorite celeb’s movies, take a moment to appreciate the hard work they have put in. Both on and off the screen. Because, as these stars prove, you can have both the glitz of stardom and the grit of academia.
