25 Smartest Celebrities ...


Usually, the words "smart" and "celebrities" do not appear anywhere in the same vicinity.

I mean, in a world with the likes of Paris, Lindsay and Mariah Carey, what else can you expect?

But believe it or not, there are a few exceptions to the rule.

Celebrities who not only have beauty, but brains as well!

Working, thinking brains, that are not just booksmart!

Here's my pick for 25 of the smartest celebrities in no particular order.

25. Quentin Tarantino

It takes some kind of genius to come up with masterpieces like Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and more recently Inglourious Basterds.

Yes, he has made a few blunders over the years (remember Death Proof and Four Rooms?) but the fact is, he knows what audiences want and he knows exactly how to deliver it!

Here's a surprising fact about him: He dropped out of high school but is a member of MENSA with an IQ of 160 thus proving that school does not necessarily make you a genius and sometimes you're just born one.

24. Matt Damon

Honestly, I'm not the biggest Matt Damon fan, although I did secretly enjoy the Bourne series and thought that Good Will Hunting was pretty much briliant.

And now, after discovering that Matt was a straight-A student through grade school and high school and studied English at Harvard University, he has gone up ever so slightly in my personal "Hottest Men" list.

23. Sharon Stone

She may be 52 but it's almost like this gorgeous woman has learnt the secret behind stopping time.

Her Basic Instinct scene may just go down in history as one of the steamiest scenes ever but did you know that Sharon enrolled in Edinboro Univeristy in Pennsylvania at the age of 15, has an I.Q.

of 154 and is a well-publicized member of MENSA?2

Yep, extraordinary beauty and brains, that's Sharon!

Meryl Streep
