93% voted yes. As if 93% of TMZ's readers even went to college....

I'm glad to see nobody's judging him. This guy is a pretty big star, was nominated for a Golden Globe this year, co-starred in an Oscar-nominated movie, and he still manages to make it to class. It's pretty refreshing to see that despite his celebrity, he's still furthering his education. Everybody has fallen asleep in class at least once in their life. I just hope his professor doesn't read TMZ :)

Gonna result in some ball-busting, for sure. Hopefully he won't drop out of school due to high mercury levels.

To Post #17 (123abc):

Maybe you need to go back to college, better yet high school. The percentage is only of those who voted, thus 93% of those who went to college/highschool (it's not specified) have fallen asleep in class.

He looks stupid.

Sure, everyone has fallen asleep in class, but maybe when you're an immature teenager, not a 30 year old man.

Plus, it again make actors look like the buffoons they are. They all act like they're smarter (see Alba) than everyone else, but they usually reveal themselves to be devoid of brains and why they can only act like they're doing something, instead of actually doing it.

I am a Columbia student and I have another class with him (not this one, from the looks of the room). It only meets once a week. He doesn't fall asleep in that one--because he barely attends.
