Who says celebrities aren’t the brightest of people? We mean, don’t judge a book by its cover, and all that, right? Because here we present to you a list of celebrities with IQs that might surprise you.
Measuring IQ is an inexact science, which is why the Guinness Book of World Records eliminated the Highest IQ category in 1990. Even with a test result in hand, the number can vary from exam to exam. Third-party scoring or estimates based upon intellectual achievements are a popular way of getting a ballpark figure. In other words, the following list is based on rumors and hearsay, but that's the only way to measure the world's smartest people.
When it comes to celebrities, most people assume because they’re actors, musicians, or socialites, that they aren’t very bright. Obviously people like that need to take a class in breaking down stereotypes, because these 50 celebs are probably smarter than all of us. The current definition of IQ test standard scores states that about two-thirds of all test-takers obtain scores from 80 to 110, and about only five percent of the population scores above 130. See which celebs score above that!
