Let’s check out who they are.


Watch full video in below:


10. Nolan Gould

Nolan Gould, who plays the dim-witted Luke on Modern Family, Graduated High School early, whne he was just 13 years old! He did a lot of studying during the summer and took an exam to finish high school way ahead of his peers. Having an IQ of 150, he said on the Ellen DeGeneres Show “As I’m driving in my limo, I’m like, ‘Wait a second, I’m 13, this is my third time at the Emmys,’ It’s like, what am I supposed to do with the rest of my life? It’s kind of all downhill from now.” Its not common to hear a 13 year old say this right!

9. Mayim Bialik

Mayim Bialik, who plays a neurobiologist on the famous TV show The Big Bang Theory, is a neuro scientist in real life too. She has Ph.D in neuroscience from UCLA. She was accepted to Harvard and Yale, but chose UCLA so that she could stay close to home. It’s been reported that her IQ is between 150 and 163. She also degrees in Jewish and Hebrew studies from UCLA. Unlike her character Amy Farrah Fowler on the big bang theory, she’s far from being socially awkward and started acting in 1988, when she was just 13.

8. Sharon Stone

Known mostly for her steamy performance in Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone is not only gorgeous, her IQ is way above average as well. The blonde actress claimed to be a member of Mensa for years, but was never actually was one. It turns out she made it up about Mensa, but she does have an IQ of 154.

Stone is considered academically gifted as a child. In fact, she entered the second grade when she was only five years old. When she was studying at Edinboro University, the gorgeous student, Sharon was a candidate for Miss Pennsylvania! A pageant judge told her to quit her studies and move to the Big Apple to become a fashion model. She did just that before flourishing as an actress.

7. Ben Affleck

Raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Ben Affleck achieved a near-perfect SAT score back in high school and is said to have an IQ of 154. By the age of seven, Affleck had received acting jobs. He also studied at both the University of Vermont and L.A.’s Occidental College.

When Affleck was eight, Matt Damon moved back into town and their mothers encouraged the pair to spend time together. The future A-listers took drama classes together, played little league together, and became increasingly close. The lifelong friends even shared a bank account for travel expenses to New York for acting auditions while in high school.

6. Aisha Tyler

Aisha Tyler currently lent her voice to lanakane. She also appeared in recurring roles in “CSI crime” scene investigation and criminal minds ranking and maxim magazine’s hot 100 list.

You may not realize her IQ scores at 156. She graduated from Dartmouth College in1992 with a bachelor’s in political science and a minor in environmental policy.

5. Matt Damon

Named the “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine in 2007, Matt Damon also boasts a reported IQ of 160. This one may be slightly less surprising as Matt is quite well-known for throwing himself into various extra-curricular activities. However, despite having a high IQ, Damon actually never finished Harvard University. Instead he dropped out of college to pursue a career in acting. It’s no surprise that he was able to help Ben Affleck with the screen play of ‘good will hunting, a film starring a young math genius in the early 1990s.

Matt Damon is known for his many extracurricular hobbies, such as voice-over work and establishing several production companies. He has also been actively involved in charitable work, including the ONE Campaign, H2O Africa Foundation, Feeding America, and, over the years.   

4. Conan O’brien

Despite making a career of acting like a fool on stage, the talk show host, Conan O’Brien finished at the top of his Harvard class in 1985 with a magna cum laude (which means “with praise” in Latin.) degree in American history and literature.

It’s not a complete surprise to learn Conan O’Brien has an IQ of 160. Before he had his late night show, he was one of the head writers for The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live.

Conan’s father, Thomas Francis O’Brien, is a physician, epidemiologist, and professor of medicine at Harvard University. His mother, Ruth O’Brien, is an attorney and partner at the Boston firm Ropes and Gray.

3. Marilyn Monroe

Characterised throughout her brief life as a dumb blonde, Marilyn was neither. She became a popular sex symbol in the nineteen fifties and was a top billing Actress. “I’ve never fooled anyone,” she said. “I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t.”

Despite having dropped out of high school due to circumstances, Monroe had a surprising intelligence. Her IQ was recorded at 168. While she may be long gone herself, her influence on the stars of today is undeniable

2. Rowan Atkinson

Rowan Atkinson, the British born actor and comedian is best known for his portrayal of the near-silent bumbling “Mr. Bean” in the 1990s and early 2000s.

To the world, he’s known as the ridiculously stupid Mr Bean. But after studying engineering at Newcastle University, Atkinson went on to Oxford University to do an MSc. It was there he met the writer and director Richard Curtis with whom he created Mr Bean and was convinced that acting was the right career path for him.

Though majority of his characters are comical, it’s his portrayal of more serious characters that reflect his IQ of 170.

1. James Woods

Considering his outstanding IQ of 180, the veteran film and voice actor could perhaps be the highest ranked among celebrities. He may be one of the smartest people in Hollywood. As a teenager, Wood’s studied linear algebra at UCLA while he was still in high school. He almost scored 100% on his SATs, getting the perfect 800 in the verbal section, and 779 in maths. With this he won a scholarship to MIT and majored in political science. However, he never graduated, as he quit to pursue acting.

Woods appeared in 36 plays before making his Broadway debut in 1970.
