5 Celebrities with the Highest IQs: Geniuses
When you think about geniuses, the first thoughts that will come to your mind are scientists, programmers, and professors. The last people you would think of are entertainers. Probably because of the fact that they use their talents and skills instead of their heads. But did you know that some celebrities actually have a higher IQ than an average person? Here are some of them:
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid” – Albert Einstein
IQ – 160
Known for films like the Bourne Series, Saving Private Ryan, and The Martian, you may think that he was just another overpaid actor. Would you believe that he actually has the same IQ as geniuses like Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking? Well, he does.
Damon was part of Harvard’s class of 1992, where he was a resident of the Lowell House. However, he did not finish his degree because he got the lead role for the movie Geronimo: An American Legend. While he was still at Harvard, he managed to write a screenplay. He wrote The Good Will Hunting, for an exercise in his English class. And in 1998, he received an Academy Award for that screenplay. His passion for acting became his life and he says he is where he is supposed to be.
IQ – 143
He’s an actor, a musician, a writer, a producer, and most of all, a well-known comedian. When Martin was younger, he always wanted to be an actor/comedian. He even took classes in drama and English poetry at Santa Ana College. But when he enrolled in California State University in Long Beach, he was inspired by his philosophy classes and considered becoming a professor. Despite having such a high IQ, he chose to drop out of college and continued his passion for comedy.
IQ – 132
Having intelligent parents is definitely one of the reasons why the remarkable actress has an above average IQ. Her father was a biochemist, clinical psychologist, and an author. While her mother is a nursing instructor who also edited her father’s books. However, neither Nicole nor her sister pursued a career in the medical field. She went into acting and her sister into journalism.
Nicole Kidman is known for her films such as Moulin Rouge, The Hours, The Rabbit Hole and Batman Forever. She has received major awards for her movies, including Best Actress awards in BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and she was the very first Australian to ever win an Academy Award.
IQ – 135
Who would have ever thought that the Austrian-American Terminator had such a high IQ? Schwarzenegger is an actor, politician, businessman and a former professional bodybuilder.
He was first a bodybuilder and won the Mr. Universe title at age 20. He is considered to be one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time and has written a few books about it. But he is known best for his role in the James Cameron sci-fi film The Terminator. He also became the 38th Governor of California from 2003 up till 2011. He is a naturalized U.S. citizen and even if the Austrian government doesn’t allow dual citizenship, his request was granted. Schwarzenegger never attended college, but if you look at his accomplishments, you can already see he definitely has a wide range of intellect.
IQ – 140
Did you know that Queen Amidala herself, Natalie Portman, skipped the premiere of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom of Menace to prepare for her high school finals? Yes, she was still in high school when she appeared in that movie. Then in 1999, she went to study psychology at Harvard University, all while being a working actress. Some students don’t even make it to Harvard, what more studying there while doing something else. No wonder why she has such high IQ. She finished her degree while filming the second Star Wars episode in the franchise.
“I don’t love studying, I hate studying. I like learning, learning is beautiful.”
