13 Celebrities Who Are A Lot Smarter Than You Think They Are

By

These stars are smarter than you think.

It shouldn't be surprising news, but here's a bombshell for you: Not all famous actors and singers are dumb. Sure, there are a lot that are pretty dim. (Here's looking at Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber, anyone who's ever dated Justin Bieber, and any celeb who mixes up "your," "you're," and "yore" and/or "there," "their" and "they're" on Twitter.) But some successful celebrities had to use their brains and their beauty to get to where they are today. It makes sense when you think about it: A pretty face or a buff bod can make you famous, but it takes intelligence and sense to remain relevant for the right reasons.

That said, many celebrities are really good looking people, and really good looking people tend not to have to be that smart. (To any good looking people that get offended by that, sorry but it's true. At least you're good looking though.) That's what makes it kind of surprising when you find out that a famous person is also super smart. Turns out, sometimes people end up famous because they're talented and intelligent. It's shocking, right? Here are 13 celebrities that are not only amazingly attractive, but are actually super smart — and that you wouldn't necessarily expect to be that wise.
