Sure, it might not be that easy to connect with people outside of Hollywood when you're famous, but you'd be surprised by the random connections that some celebrities had way before they even entered the spotlight. Some met while waiting in line to audition for mediocre projects, others met their childhood companions through their famous parents' entourage, a few were just classmates.
