Even sporting events like the Indy 500 have a red carpet to welcome celebrities.
When you think about celebrities, you probably assume that they came to their fame without having much education. There are more celebrities than you may think with degreesÂ â€” and not just a bachelor’s degree. Here is a list of 10 celebrities who have graduate degrees.
1. David Duchovny: Duchovny is best known for his role as Agent Mulder on The X-Files and more recently as Hank Moody on Californication. Before beginning his career, however, Duchovny received a master’s degree in English literature from Yale University.
2. Rowan Atkinson: If Atkinson’s name isn’t familiar, you’re likely familiar with one of his most famous characters, Mr. Bean. Although Atkinson has made it a career playing the idiot, he is far from it. Before acting, he first got a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Oxford.
3. Shaquille O’Neal: Shaq’s degree came later in life. After earning his bachelor’s degree in 2000 in general studies, he went on to earn his MBA online through the University of Phoenix.
4. Sigourney Weaver: Before her acting career took off, Weaver earned a master’s degree in art from Yale University’s School of Drama.
5. Bill Cosby: Famous for his stand-up comedy on everyday life, including giving his children chocolate cake for breakfast (after all, it has eggs and milk and flour), Bill Cosby believed education was important. Even while being successful with comedy and acting, Cosby earned a doctorate degree in education from the University of Massachusetts.
6. Art Garfunkel: Although he was known more for his music with Paul Simon, Arthur Garfunkle was also a math whiz earning a master’s degree in mathematics from Columbia University.Â
7. Spike Lee: Though born as Shelton Jackson Lee, it was his mother who named him Spike because of how tough he was. Lee graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in Film and Television. In fact, Lee has joined the ranks of celebrity professors by teaching film at NYU and Columbia.
8. Brian May: Though his first love is being a musician, as songwriter and lead guitarist for Queen, his second love is in astrophysics. Although he took time off from his doctoral studies to be a musician, he went back to school and, in 2007, earned his Ph.D. in astrophysics from the Imperial College in London.
9.Â Mayim Bialik: Best known for her role as Blossom in the show Blossom,Â Mayim Bialik earned her doctorate in neuroscience in 2008. Most recently, Bialik has returned to acting playing Amy Farrah Fowler on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, where she plays a neurobiologist.Â
10.Â Ken Jeong: Though Jeong is best known as a comedian, starting his career at The Improv and Laugh Factory comedy clubs and currently appearing in NBC’s Community, Jeong earned his medical degree from theÂ University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is affectionately referred to as Dr. Ken.
Knowing that so many celebrities have earned graduate degrees, doesn’t it make you feel like you could do it too?Â

With the news that Maria Shriver is separating from Arnold Schwarzenegger after 25 years of marriage, we thought we’d put together a gallery of Maria and 7 more celebrity cougars. If you’re fantasizing about dating older women, you’ll love this gallery.
We start with one of our favorites, Jennifer Aniston, who looks more like a 20-something hottie than a cougar, and we naturally included Courtney Cox as well, the beautiful brunette who stars in ABC’s “Cougar Town.”
We also made sure to add some bombshells who love to sport their impressive cleavage, with Sofia Vergara, Monica Bellucci and Elizabeth Hurley fitting nicely in that category. Of course we added the most famous cougar, Demi Moore, who is most known for scoring a younger guy well into her forties. And then we have Cameron Diaz, who has been very open about how women her age still love sex! God bless them!

Look out for her in “Martha Marcy May Marlene” opening soon.
It’s hard to find a guy who hasn’t fantasized about dating Jennifer Aniston. She’s gorgeous and she seems to be fun as hell. Who cares if she hasn’t landed a guy? That makes her even sexier – she’s available!
Radar Online has a great story about a former lover of Jennifer who tells all about their relationship! Brian Bouma hooked up with Jen when they met on a movie set and he dishes on the details, saying she preferred “bad boys”:
