4. James Franco
There's more than meets the eye when it comes to James Franco. After building a successful Hollywood career, James moved to New York City to earn graduate degrees from Columbia University in writing, New York University in filmmaking and Brooklyn College in fiction writing - all at the SAME time! As if that wasn't enough he later enrolled as a PhD student in English at Yale University, and he's also taken classes at the nearby Rhode Island School of Design. Have a day off James!
