40 Female Celebrities You Never Knew Were Cheerleaders [PHOTOS]


Here at COED, we consider ourselves experts on cheerleaders. It stems from a passion (some might call it an obsession) that’s developed over the years.

But let this be a lesson to all the young bucks who think they know everything about a subject: reality can (and will) smacks you in the face. Yesterday that reality check came to us in the form of a reddit post. Truthfully, I had no idea that Meryl Streep was once a cheerleader. Same with Amy Poehler.

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” That’s why I took it upon myself to create a definitive list of female celebrities who used to rock pom-poms. For the record, there’s a Wikipedia page dedicated to the list of names but since I paid attention in school and distrust Wikipedia, if there’s not a photo of the celebrity in their old outfit, I’m not believing it.
