Celebrities aren’t usually credited for their intelligence so we thought we’d cast some light on celebrity IQs. Admittedly, IQs are not easy to measure but in general, anyone scoring above 110 is deemed to be of above-average intelligence so, with that in mind, Idea10 has compiled the reported IQs of 25 celebrities.
1James Franco – 130
Making it in Hollywood doesn’t require a college degree, which means it’s highly unlikely you’ll spot Justin Bieber or Harry Styles in your lecture on postcolonial history. But then again, James Franco isn’t your usual celebrity. Far from it.
In fact, the Pineapple Express star holds a Major’s degree in English literature from UCLA and has also taken various creative writing courses. Teaching is another forte of Franco’s, and when he isn’t studying on film sets, you can find him teaching classes at USC, UCLA, and NYU.
UCLA even celebrated his academic credentials on a poster of famous alumni members, with a witty caption underneath reading, ‘Some A-Listers Actually Get A’s.’
