2. Tommy Lee Jones
Tommy Lee Jones is a Hollywood legend with a career that spans decades and with more memorable roles than we can remember. Well, it seems that the Academy Award-winning actor is not just a commanding silver screen presence, but also a highly intelligent Harvard man.
He hails from a modest family and he attended the St. Mark’s School of Texas on a scholarship. He continues his ties with the school to this day and he is currently on its board of directors.
He later enrolled in Harvard on a need-based scholarship where he had a room across Al Gore, who would later become Vice President of the United States. Jones graduated cum laude from Harvard, with a BA in English. His senior thesis was on the subject of “the mechanics of Catholicism” in the writings of Flannery O’Connor. (Celebritydirt.com)
