Top Ten Smartest CelebritiesThis list should only include actors, singers, reality stars, authors, athletes, comedians, hosts, interviewers, and people like that, rather than scientists, business people, or political figures.
The Top TenXW
Jackie Evancho should head this list. How many other kids do you know that could memorize and sing any song in Italian, Latin, or French when she does not even speak those languages. She has been doing this since she was at lest 7 years old. Watch her on YouTube when she was on a talent show in MA at 9 years of age. She moved the female host to tears. So much so that the show had to stop taping for 10 minutes so the host could recover.
Smart can be defined in many ways. This young girl has a remarkable mind that few can match when it comes to music. I can't wait to see her when she grows up (like, to the old age of 15! ).
You people treat her like she's a new Einstein who will come with new theories about the universe. Get real, she's maybe a good student but that doesn't make her " the smartest " person in the world. She speaks two languages? I speak 5 languages and that doesn't make me a philosopher. She sang in different languages? So does Avril Lavigne, even Elvis Presley have sung in 4 different languages ( German, Italian, Spanish and English of course ). They weren't call the smartest people on earth of that at their time. I think you are all overrating this girl because of your obsessions.
With all of her worldwide concert travels and recording studio work, she still attends public high school in Pittsburgh, and keeps her grades up.V10 Comments
From her young age she learned the basics in music from her father, late Krishnan Nair who was a singer and composer of repute. The gifted singer learned music at the graduate and post-graduate levels and completed her B A in music with the third rank from the university. She went on to complete her MA in music from Kerala University
Smartness in appearence and way of talk make her top
She speaks so many different languages, and has a great academic record. she knows what she's doing and she's old enough to handle popularity, unlike so many stars that have crashed and burned before her. Really smart. She sings very clever notes in her songs, and the singles she put out, in the order she put them out, was brilliant, and very instrumental in her becoming the famous singer she is now -
No no he should not be the first it should be Robert pattinsonV3 Comments
She speaks so many different languages, and has a great academic record.
She is amazing! I love her always have, always will! She is so smart, and kind she should be at the top! She is truly my favorite!
She did a charity and won "best celebrity hero" on radio Disney music awards!V3 Comments
Lead singer of Iron Maiden, songwriter, published author, world class fencer, airline pilot, businessman, invented technology for the rail industry incorporated worldwide, economics and politics aficionado. A living 5 string Polymath. A true genius.
This guy is really smart and talented. His achievements prove it. Also a great personality, down to earth. - Metal_Treasure
To call Dickinson a celebrity is stupid. He's an artist, not a vain Hollywood superstar. - MKBeast
Madge controls her own business; she is great songwriter, writer, not bad producer and director. Madonna is everything - Magnolia
I always like everything she does and more
Madonna is a very intelligent businesswoman and pop music icon. Her IQ is said to be 140.V3 Comments
She writes very clever things in her songs, and the singles she put out, in the order she put them out, was brilliant, and very instrumental in her becoming the famous singer she is now.
she knows what she's doing and she's old enough to handle popularity, unlike so many stars that have crashed and burned before her. - Queen-aholic

She makes good choices in her life.V9 Comments
Brian studied astronomy but decided to take three decades off to be a rock star before going back to academia. He finnished his doctoral thesis in 2007 :-)V1 Comment
I didn't notice this glaring omission until after after I made the list. Thank you, to whoever added her. - ilovekelly75
She is nearly a genius, I'm impressed.
We must be honest - her IQ is over all celebrities. We can't even compare Beyonce, Katy Perry or Jessica Simpson with her! - Alexandr
He's a genius,truly.acting requires living the character,living the character requires real intelligence.I say that because I've always thought creativity is pure intelligence.He,tom hanks,samuel L.jackson,Christian bale,russel crowe and many other actors and actresses who may be better than these I mentioned.By the way,I'm Egyptian and Egypt is a BAD country but many Egyptians aren't that bad,guys.
180 IQ is highest of all celebrities. That should make him the smartest. Would make him be in around the top.00001 percentile or lower. Smarter than einstein by a good amount and probably shouldn't be in acting as h I. Snt very popular
Obviously this list was not made by anyone that should be on this list.
Actually he is the smartest celebrity with an iq ranking in the top 50 in the world.V2 Comments
More witty by far than anyone on this list. He also along with the beatles invented his own genre of music. Every one above him is just popular at the moment and everyone decides that they are smart cause they can write there own songs, sad...
He's smarter than Madonna! Come on Madonna is an idiot. Her music sucks! Beatles are AWESOME and his music can range from rock n roll, to INSANE, to beautiful but Madonna. I almost had a heart attack when I saw it on this list... oh my gosh people... just terrible... ugh.
He was an arrogant, self centered, hypocritical, drug addict. His singing voice and guitar playing were mediocre at best. He would sing about money being evil, peace and love, and then get into his Rolls Royce and go physically and emotionally abuse his wife and kids.
Great role model.
She has co-written 2 scientific papers, and went to Harvard.
I know you're probably thinking it's only because she is famous, but she graduated from Harvard before her fame.
Dolph is a legendary master of many fields, aside from maybe Bruce Dickinson no other celeb has come close to his performance in so many aspects. Well before he began acting and directing, Dolph Lundgren was an accomplished, published and respected chemical engineer with an international background, having commenced his training in Sweden before earning a Master's in Australia and winning a Fulbright Scholarship to MIT. It was there that Dolph learned the ropes and won the role of the Russian boxer in Rocky, to become one of the best and most popular action stars of recent years- in a foreign country where he moved as an adult, no easy feat. This alone would probably qualify him as the smartest celeb or whatever other title is used, but there's more. He speaks a host of foreign languages that he had to learn, not that he grew up speaking, served in the Swedish military in probably its toughest subdivision and became an accomplished musician. There's even more smartest celebrity fodder ...more
He is great at acting and is very intellectual I read he went to a really high quality university
Ivan Drago, that's all I have to say.
He proves how smart he is in interviews all the time. It amazes me every time.
A man with a great IQ will fool you if he knows what's your favorite activities are and what your name is.V1 Comment
She's an author. She's in The Guiness Book Of World Records for Highest IQ. It's even higher than Einstein, Gates, and Hawking.
Wow. I had no idea she was that smart! - RockFashionistaV5 Comments
She's such a brilliant and clever lyricist, and the way she was able to pass her third album through proves that she knows what she's doing.
You may hate her personality but look at this - she works very hard! J. Lo doesn't have a strong voice but she can sing and dance at the same time NON-STOP! I visited her shows. She's a wonderful entertainer. Her acting is not bad. She is a very good businesswomanV1 Comment
