Celebrity High

We dug up the photos Orange County’s biggest celebs surely would like to forget. Isn’t it nice to know bad hair and tragic awkwardness aren’t reliable indicators of success?

Head of the Class

Diane Keaton
Oscar-winning actress (“Annie Hall”) and author, the ’70s-era fashion icon did not look the part in her yearbook photo

Santa Ana High, ’63
Debutantes girls’ choir, Little Theater Guild. “I smiled my way through high school. My main concern was being popular, so I joined those horrible singing groups where everyone wears cute matching outfits.

Steve Martin
Silver-haired comic actor, banjo player, art collector, Martin vacillates between absurdist comedy, comic acting, and penning heady books and essays

Garden Grove High, ’63
President of Jason’s Jesters, member of the Drama-turned-Thespian Club, Yell Squad, Most Talented. On his first time inside the school’s 1,500-seat Don Wash Auditorium as a teen: “I sat in the audience, looking up at the stage … I knew I wanted to be up there.”
