In 1996, Claire Danes starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in "Romeo + Juliet." Two years later, Danes traded on-screen love for on-campus labor, enrolling to study psychology at Yale, her father's alma mater. Oliver Stone wrote her letter of recommendation.
But Danes and Yale were just as much a star-crossed match as Romeo and Juliet: After two years, she dropped out to focus on acting for film. She has since been seen in films such as "Shopgirl" and "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines."
