Plenty of people know model Brooklyn Decker, now that she’s one of the stars of the current hit movie Just Go With It starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston.

But not as many people probably know that Decker was a passionate yearbook staff member in high school not that long ago.

On the most recent episode of MTV’s show When I Was 17, Decker re-told the story of how she even once got into a heated debate with her yearbook adviser over including the student council, of which Decker was also a member, on a page.

Of course, Decker added, “I don’t know what came over me, I was crazy in high school. I was like, all hopped up on Red Bull or something, I don’t know.”
