From Lindsay and Raven to Adam and Judd: Celebrity Roommates

What are the odds that your roommate is going to become a future celebrity? Now what are the odds that the both of you will one day become famous? These are the famous men and women who once had to share rent with other famous men and women. Some roomed together before they were famous and others met up in Hollywood and decided to move in together. These are the celebrity roommates.

Lea Michele and Dianna Agron: These Glee starlets lived together in the early days of Glee in downtown Los Angeles. They said living together was super easy because they are both vegans. Even though Lea seems like a diva on the show, there was no drama off screen, "We have these smackdowns at work and come home and are like, 'Wasn't it so funny when we were fighting today? Let's make cookies!"

Lindsay Lohan and Raven Symone: Wait what? I guess these two bonded over their Disney roots and early in the 2000's these two actually lived together, sort of. Raven said in 2008 that LiLo barely even lived at the apartment, "She paid rent, and she was there probably three times. She had her clothes in the apartment we were supposed to live in together." Looking back, I bet Raven realized how much she benefited from Lindsay never being home.

Adam Sandler and Judd Apatow: Before these two had any idea that they would become wildly successful and collaborate on the project "Funny People," these two dudes were roommates 20 years ago, slumming it in LA while trying to become comedians. Apatow recalls living with Sandler, "When we first moved in together, very early on he said, 'Let me see your penis.' I was like, 'No! What do you want to see that for?' He's like, 'I just want to know what I'm dealing with.'" And from there blossomed a lovely friendship.

Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick: These two met on the set of Gossip Girl and while I assume the paychecks from that show would be enough to afford their own places, the two dudes decided to share a NYC apartment together. After a couple months, Crawford couldn't handle how sloppy Westwick was and moved out. A source reported in 2006, "Chace wants to move out to a bachelor pad. He wants privacy and has told his agent to spare no expense in finding the perfect loft" and Crawford ended up moving to the financial district.

Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey: After meeting when they were both contestants on Dancing With The Stars, Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey struck up an usual friendship. These two are now roommates in Los Angeles along with Kyle's brother Christopher and Bristol's son Tripp. This living situation is actually being documented for their new reality show on the BIO network. This sounds like a perverse reality version of "Two and a Half Men" I suggest they call it, "Two and a Half Men and One Conservative."

Jonah Hill and Justin Long: These two used to be roommates in California after meeting on the set of "Campus Ladies" but things ended in a huge falling out once things got too bromancy. Long said, "We're still great friends but it got to be like an old married couple. We fought over recycling. He would recycle everything. We started getting in little fights like that, he left the bathroom door open, didn't clean up after himself. Little things like that. It was time for a separation."

John Cusack and Jeremy Piven: These Chicago dudes lived together in Illinois while they were students studying acting in a theater workshop started by Piven's parents. Their roommate-ship went awry when Cusack started getting lead film roles and Piven did not. Cusack would find small parts for Piven in films like "Grosse Pointe Blank." Later, they started hating each other, probably over jealousy. Piven said Cusack couldn't handle his newfound success on "Entourage" and Cusack coyly replied, "I am very happy for Jeremy."

Jude Law and Ewan McGregor: This Brit actor and Scottish actor met one day at an audition waayyy before they were famous. They hit it off and ended up becoming roommates for a while. These two were such besties that they co-founded the production company "Natural Nylon."
