Anna Paquin -- Paquin Up for School
Not exactly a late bloomer, Anna Paquin won an Oscar for her performance in "The Piano" at the tender age of 11. By age 14 she had landed a major role in "Jane Eyre" and starred in "Fly Away Home." In fact, she had more than a dozen features under her belt when she started as an undergrad at Columbia, although she didn't stay long enough to get a diploma. "It turned out I really liked my job so I didn't come back after the first year," said Paquin. "But evidently they think I've graduated because I was recently invited back to a class reunion for class of 2004. I was rather surprised. I don't know how that happened ... I don't technically know what my enrollment status is."
