Hollywood has more celebrity connections than you might think. Before catching their big breaks, many actors and musicians ran in the same circles, commiserated over failed auditions, and even lived together. Whether longtime friends or one-time co-stars, these 13 famous pairs once made for surprising roommates.

Dianna Agron is just about ready for her close-up. On a winter morning in New York, the Glee star and Novitiate actress steps into her bathroom to get her skin “really glow-y, dewy, hydrated,” three adjectives that read as well on the page as they do on camera. “Everybody feels better when their skin is smooth and radiant,” says Agron, but a knockout complexion is an especially covetable asset for actors. For turns on-screen big or small, “you want someone to be looking at your face, and unless it was an intentional choice for the character, you want to be fresh-faced.” So before she heads off to a shoot, this time for The Laureate in Ireland, she leans into a simple but inarguably effective three-part routine to get her picture-perfect by the time she reaches the bottom of the skin-care bottles.

Dianna Agron and I are in bed together at The Plaza Hotel New York, with a bowl of popcorn balanced between us. Our legs stretch out over pristine white sheets and we face each other as if the secrets at a sleepover are about to pour out. Clothes bags are piled at the foot of the bed, and from the bright-pink Eloise Suite across the corridor, the bustling murmur from the photoshoot seeps into the room.

In her first major screen role since “Glee,” Dianna Agron is a Sixties Catholic nun in “Novitiate,” a project that has helped her reconnect to her musical roots. Dianna Agron, a recent transplant to New York, has learned through firsthand experience that city living comes with its share of overexposure: if you live near a hotel, you might just catch glimpses of guests in the nude as part of your daily routine. Sitting in the Drawing Room of the Crosby Street Hotel in her SoHo neighborhood, the 31-year-old is safely shielded from her usual (and accidental) views and is instead ready to discuss — what else? — nuns.

Imagine you’re a young woman in the early 1960s. Your religious beliefs are so powerful that you want to dedicate your life to God as a nun. But your reverend mother superior—who enforces periods of total silence, forbids touch, and encourages her charges to punish themselves with a knotted flogger—begins hiding secrets from her other charges, and they’re messages that might change your life. On the one hand, you’re faithful; on the other hand, the brutality and furtiveness of your leader makes you question everything you believe. What should you do? This is what Dianna Agron’s Novitiate character, Sister Mary Grace, goes through: a reckoning so profound that it might upturn everything she’s achieved so far. Serene on the outside, but troubled on the inside, when a new group of young women enter her care, she begins to question the convent’s methods and what she really wants from life.

Don’t mess with Melissa Leo. As Novitiate‘s Reverend Mother Marie St. Claire, the boss lady who calls the shots at the fictional Tennessee convent where this religious drama is based, the actress gives the kind of bravura performance that not only sparks Oscar talk but richly deserves it. She finds the tyrant in this woman of God without neglecting her aching vulnerability as she tries to hold to the ground while the ground keeps shifting.

The Novitiate star on her relationship with religion and spirituality in adulthood, the most challenging part of her role, and the hilarious (tipsy) story from the night she took the part. For Dianna Agron, portraying Sister Mary Grace—a young nun committed to commune life amidst the Vatican II’s reform of the Church in the 1960s in the buzzed-about film Novitiate (out in theaters October 27)—was a serendipitous collision of events. You see, it all came out of a forged friendship between Agron and writer-director Margaret Betts over sidecar martinis (as in 2-for-1) at the Carlyle in Manhattan. That meeting, which ended with a tipsy attendance to Yom Kippur service (we’ll get into that fun tidbit below) and ultimately aligning schedules, set Agron up for one of her most raw performances—a major departure from her peppy Glee days.

Despite the presence of movie characters who claim to be lapsed Catholics, Americans are bigger churchgoers and generally move religious than our friends in Western Europe. Polls have shown that our public will vote for a Black person, a woman, perhaps even Satan himself, but forget about the Oval Office if you’re an out-of-closet atheist or agnostic. While some of us will go to houses of worship every week and others only on the most important holidays, there are folks who make careers out of their religious beliefs. Enter Maggie Betts, who directs and wrote “Novitiate” as her first feature film and took off with the Breakthrough Director’s award for this very film.
