Judd Apatow - Judd Apatow Picks Up Diploma Aged 44
Knocked Up director Judd Apatow has returned to school to pick up his diploma 27 years after graduating.
The 44-year-old used twitter to convey his happiness on the subject, posting a picture of himself holding his certificate with pride. "I never picked up my '85 high school diploma. A nice woman in the office at Syosset High found it so I picked it up," he explained, before going to post a number of tweets that bemoaned his school days. "When I went to school I slept in class and cheated quite a bit. Shocking how much I slept behind a well placed hand - pretending to read. I am not better for it. I know very few big words. That is why I like to write for high school age characters - who are not smart or sober. I cheated in AP (advanced placement) physics then my scam collapsed and in my second semester I was so far behind because I learned nothing and failed hard. I won't allow my kids to do it. I regret it... (I) didn't learn anything in some classes and that caught up with me."
