It may seem strange to think that many A-list Hollywood celebrities had humble beginnings, living together as roommates / flatmates in shared accommodation. In fact it was often these shared living experiences that led to their fame and fortune…
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
Matt and Ben were good friends at school, living fairly close to one another in Boston. After school in the 90’s they moved into a house together, but they weren’t your typical housemate bums… Instead they got working on a movie script for a well known film: “Good Will Hunting”. The rest as they say, is history…
Ewan McGregor and Jude Law
Probably many a girls dream combo, Ewan and Jude Law were once offered $30 by a director to get drunk, to see how they got on together. All that free booze ($30 was a lot in the 90’s) seemed to work a treat, as they soon moved in together!
The Spice Girls
Believe it or not, but many of the Spice Girls (remember them?) used to live together before hitting the big time. When Touch (their original group name) were just starting out in Berkshire – Mel B and Mel C shared a room, Victoria shared with Michelle (who was later replaced by Emma) and Geri was the only one with her own room (no surprise there).
