The Oldest High Schoolers In Film

I don't know about you guys, but I always crack up when I see someone who is obviously over 25 trying to pass themselves off as being a high schooler in a movie or TV show. That being said, I had no idea that Olivia Newton John was 27 when she acted in Grease.

Edward, it's quite possible that during filming Grease Newton John was 27. Even though the release date is 78 it could have been filmed much earlier.

Olivia Newton John, according to her own website, was born in 1948. Grease came out in 1978 which would make her 30. There were claims at the time that she was even older.

Missing from this list: Alan Ruck, who played Cameron Frye in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. He turned 30 about three weeks after the film was released.
