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 Ten
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! ).
Being bilingual doesn't make you smart. I go to a high school where half the kids there are bilingual, and for some, English is actually their second language. If you're ranking a bilingual singer above people that dedicated their whole lives into studying the mysteries of the universe, developed theories with amazing proof, and have been 100% accepted by the public, you have a problem.
I'm bilingual. Does this make me a genius? No. There are other celebrities here who are highly intelligent and deserve this spot. - errrrV 38 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 :-)
Brian May should be number 1!
Astronomy doctor and animal lover.
What an insult! Brian May should be #1.V 11 Comments
She's certainly smarter than Jackie Evancho. Too bad the people on this site worship Jackie and can't accept that she isn't the best at everything... - Gurl
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!
Her IQ is 140. Enough saidV 4 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 -
Smarter than Barack Obama.V 5 Comments
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.
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
Anyone can learn multiple languages. Before the 1900's, many, if not most, were bilingual, and in the Roman Empire, being tri(+)lingual was common.
Should be much higher!V 3 Comments
Madge controls her own business; she is great songwriter, writer, not bad producer and director. Madonna is everything - Magnolia
Madonna is not even that smart. Every time she says a tribute about another celebrities passing, she only cares about herself. I don't like her. I'm not being negative.
I always like everything she does and more

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 had the depth and sheer brilliance like no other. He was a poet, a lyricist, a brilliant melody writer and as witty, profound and deep as they come. Brilliant and so so missed.
So sad he got shotV 2 Comments
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.
I've just heard a lot about how smart he is.
He is the smartestV 2 Comments
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
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.
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 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.
because she write her own song and has a very good taste in fashion!
She is an idiot. She asked Neil DeGrasse Tyson in an interview ''Is math related to science'' unironically.. What a moron - emilkV 15 Comments
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.
She graduated from HARVARD! Plus she knows seven foreign languages, and her IQ is higher than Barrack Oboma.
Undoubtedly the smartest celebrity! Obtained master's degree in 70s and yet still able to make the world laugh until today! - SilentKiller1996
Of course he's smart. Smarter than Einstein! - micahisthebest
His IQ is higher than Stephen Hawking, Einstein and Kesha
Think of all the Writing awards! - Gaspar
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.
A double first in Classics and he speaks five languages.
Tom Hiddleston is one of the smartest celebrities ever! He attended the same prep school as Prince Harry and Eddie Redmayne, he speaks five languages, has memorized certain passages in Shakespear's play Othello, as well as countless others. He should be #1!
He's been the host of Jeopardy since 1984. Enough said.
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
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.
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.
Does he look like a bitch?
His humor is so much more intelligent than everything else that's passed off as comedy.
He isn't even a celebrity, he calls himself a rapper only because he doesn't choose to go in the mainstream - venomouskillingmachine
Brian is a genius - RnBLover
Wow. I had no idea she was that smart! - RockFashionista

She's very smart for her age.
Other celebrities have may started before his time, but Michael Jackson is a talented pioneer. He also protects his kids from the media very well. His song writing is very meaningful, he even knows how to make up any style of dancing, his fashion choices are the best and he does his makeup pretty well. Michael Jackson is also very good with his fiances.
Not only the greatest talent the world has ever known, also a shrewd businessman
Michael is simply the best! - Michaelthebest
