Top Ten Smartest Celebrities

This 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

1Jackie EvanchoJacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts.

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.

2K.S. Chithra

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 pattinson

9Sharon Stone

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

10Leonardo DiCaprio

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.

The Newcomers

?Tyra BanksTyra Lynne Banks is an American model, television personality, talk show host, producer, author, actress, singer and business woman.
?Muhammad AliMuhammad Ali is an American former professional boxer, generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport.

The Contenders

11James Woods

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.

12John LennonJohn Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music.

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.

13Natalie PortmanNatalie Portman is an actress, film producer and film director with dual American and Israeli citizenship.

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.

14Dolph LundgrenHans "Dolph" Lundgren is a Swedish actor, director, screenwriter, producer, martial artist, and chemical engineer.

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.

15Samuel L. JacksonSamuel Leroy Jackson is an American actor and film producer. He achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with films such as Jungle Fever, Patriot Games, Amos & Andrew, True Romance, Jurassic Park and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino including Pulp Fiction, Jackie ...read more.

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.

18Kelly Clarkson

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.

19Jennifer LopezJennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

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 businesswoman
