Al Pacino Education & Background:

Al Pacino grew up in the South Bronx and attended The High School of Performing Arts, which is a division of the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School. However, as a student there he dreamed of being a baseball player and felt more thrilled on the field than on the stage, so he eventually dropped out at age 17. His mother disapproved of his decision, which led to him moving out; homeless, drinking, and smoking, he received most of what he calls his "social education" on the streets. As for his dramatic education, Pacino was initially rejected by the Actors Studio in his adolescence, leading him to study under Charlie Laughton at the Herbert Berghof Studio. With four years at HB Studio under his belt, he reapplied to the Actors Studio and was mentored by Lee Strasberg; Pacino credits these two acting coaches for pushing him to focus on acting and launching his career. He never went to college, but today he enjoys international acclaim and is currently, alongside Ellen Burstyn and Harvey Keitel, running the Actors Studio to which he once so aspired.
