Harrison Ford: It wasn’t until three days before graduation that this Hollywood hunk got expelled from Ripon College in Wisconsin. He failed philosophy his senior year, got into acting, and the rest is history. The Indiana Jones star’s films now gross $6 billion worldwide.
Ted Kennedy: It seems his scandals go all the way back to his college days. He was forced to leave Harvard University after he paid a fellow classmate to help him cheat. As the youngest Kennedy, he died in 2009, and was one of the longest-serving senators in United States’ history.
Samuel L. Jackson: He was expelled from Morehouse College in Atlanta after he was involved in a black power protest, which locked the board of trustees members in a building for two days. Jackson got his big break in 1991 with the movie Jungle Fever and is now one of the highest grossing actors in Hollywood.
