One twin had a nude photo scandal; the other played it super cool. Dylan majored in video game design and Cole majored in archeology—which isn’t too far from his fictional dad’s career on Friends. (Yes, that’s Ben Geller!)

She’s been known to rock flower crowns and speak candidly about her history with depression and addiction.

The Trinity College student majors in philosophy and theology. Don’t expect to see Gleeson on either the big or small screen anytime soon, though. He announced he was retiring from acting after that infamous wedding.

Luckily for her, she’s enrolled in the university’s Gallatin school (the same one at the Sprouse twins), which she says is, “designed to be much more independent and classes are individually structured, so everything is tailored around the person and their individual needs.”
