Ok so I had to do a little research on this one, for admittedly I didn’t know what index to use. GPA? Degrees? IQ?
SO I finally decided to go with IQ as it is the most relevant to “smartness” as a lot of “over achievers” get good grades and degrees.
SO to find the highest IQ celebs I did a web search for MENSA members. Here are the top six smart celebs:
Sharon Stone (Yes THE Sharon Stone!)
Geena Davis (I saw her at the Hollywood Bed, Bath and Beyond the other day.)
Stan Medley ( Yes, he was number two on my Sexiest Men in America list too!)
Jodie Foster (I guess we all kind of figured she was smart)
Now these are the verified MENSA members (HIGH IQ Society). Now I guess they are ALL tied for first place as all we know is that they are members of MENSA. We do not know which of them has the higher IQ.
Honorable mention does go to JAMES WOOD, however, who is reported to have an extremely high IQ though we cannot verify any MENSA MEMBERSHIP. (Well done James for being an IQ rebel.)
NOW notice that out of the top SIX four first names begin with the letter “S”. Quite a showing for that letter. Guess that makes it the smartest letter in the alphabet. SO I guess that is why Sharon Stone TOPS my list because her name has a double “S”. (AND – oh – but the way, my name IS Sheree!)
Also check out the fact that two of the SIX have last names that begin with the letter “M” – so maybe that should put Steve Martin and Stan Medley at the top of the list as both of their first names begin with the letter “S” and last names begin with the letter “M.”
And as long as we are talking about Stan Medley, you may have noticed that he was also in the my top 5 on my SEXIEST MEN IN AMERICA LIST. Number TWO to be exact – but this definitely moves him into FIRST PLACE on that list as a SMART MAN is really, really sexy to me. Don’t you girls agree? (Sorry George!)
