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 Evancho

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! ).

Not only EXTREMELY talented but also intelligent.
I'm super jealous of her right now.

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

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 -

Wow... she is my idol...
She is super great... she rocks...
She is outstanding...
There is a lot of good qualities that we can extract from her...
Very brave 2...

9Leonardo 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.

10Sharon Stone

The Newcomers

?Donald Trump

The Contenders

11John Lennon

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.

12Marilyn Vos Savant

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.

13Samuel L. Jackson

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.

14Kelly 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.

15Jennifer Lopez

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
