24 Politician and Celebrity IQs That Will Leave You Shocked

It’s easy to assume that you know how smart people are when they’re in the public eye, but appearances can be deceiving. Here are some politician and celebrity IQs that are bound to surprise you.


The sexy songstress has one of the highest celebrity IQs, clocking in at 140. She’s been a guest speaker at the prestigious University of Oxford.

Bill Gates

No one’s surprised by Gates’ inclusion on this list. His 180 IQ is a lot of the reason for Microsoft’s success.

Arnold Schwarzenegger – IQ 135

Because of his roles in action films and thick accent, many people incorrectly assume Schwarzenegger isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. He’s got a 135 IQ and multiple bachelor’s degrees to match, however.

Alicia Keys

Like many great musicians, Keys is extremely intelligent. She has a 154 IQ.

Steve Martin

Fans of Martin’s smart and clever comedy aren’t surprised that the former philosophy major has a 142 IQ.


Her music may not be high-brow, but the pop songstress has an IQ of 140 and nearly posted a perfect SAT score in high school.

George H.W. Bush

Bush’s son was famous for his speaking gaffes, but George Sr. is a smart man with an IQ measured at 130.

Kevin Spacey

Spacey graduated at the top of his high school class and has an IQ of 137.

Sharon Stone

Would you have pegged the sexy Stone as the owner of one of the highest celebrity IQs? She is said to have an IQ of 148.

Bar Rafaeli

Bar Rafaeli might be beautiful, but she sure doen’t have the IQ to back it up. With an IQ of only 70, she is right on the line of having a score that’s considered ‘low.’ Fortunately for her, modeling doesn’t require very much brain power, so we’re thinking she’ll be alright.

Ben Stein

You may have not heard of Ben Stein but you have probley heard some of the speeches he wrote for U.S presidents such as Richard Noxon. His IQ is 150.

Dolph Lundgren

Like Schwarzenegger, Lundgren is stereotyped as a mindless action film star, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. He has multiple degrees in chemical engineering and a 160 IQ.

Colin Firth

You probably saw him on “The King’s Speech”. He graduated from Barton Peveril College in the U.K. Firth has an amazing memory and can quote from different novels such as those writen by Thomas Hardy and Lord Byron.

Geena Davis

The star of the classic A League of Our Own has a 140 IQ, plays several instruments, and is fluent in multiple languages.

Asia Carrera

Asia Carrera is perfect combination of beauty and brains. Her reportedly IQ is 156!

Hillary Clinton

Say what you want about Clinton’s politics; you can’t deny that with a 140 IQ, she’s a smart woman.

Aisha Tyler

Tyler is sexy, hilarious, and smart. The comedian has an IQ of 156, ensuring her rank among the highest celebrity IQs.

Mayim Bialik

When she was cast as a smart, clever kid in Blossom, it may have been a bit of typecasting. Bialik has a 163 IQ and a Ph.D. in neuroscience.


Robin Williams

The brilliant actor who passed away in 2016, Robin Williams had a reportedly IQ of 140.

Jodie Foster

The actress has a 132 IQ and graduated with owners from Yale University.

Nicole Kidman

Kidman is beautiful and smart to boot, with a staggering IQ of 132.


Don’t let the sexy image of the pop icon fool you. She’s very smart, as evidenced by her 140 IQ.

Barack Obama

According to IQ estimations by academics, President Barak Obama has an IQ of 145.

Miley Cyrus

People who do and say strange, outlandish things are often pretty smart. Cyrus is no exception, with an IQ of about 120.

Ivanka Trump

At Wharton, Ivana “Ivanka” Trump was a legacy. It is possible for legacies at any Ivy to graduate with a bachelors — and never open a book. Think: GWB at Yale. That said, it is possible to get an actual education if you are so inclined.

FWIW: GWB went on to get a Harvard MBA which means opening a book and breaking a sweat – every day. Watched a recent interview with him just yesterday. It doesn’t shine through very much, but it does shine through a little.

Ivanka is not particularly interesting to me so I haven’t looked at her that closely. She did convert to her husband’s faith, no mean intellectual feat, if you are not born to it. There are plenty of not-so-bright people there, but also more Nobel Prizes than any other group of humans.

Best I can say is that I haven’t seen her say anything that would put her IQ under 120. She could be a lot smarter. I just haven’t seen it yet, and haven’t looked.


Rowan Atkinson IQ is 178, which is considered as a super genius and in top 0.1% of the population in the world.

Does this not rock your world? Mr. Bean is a freaking genius. His intellect is almost off the charts, immeasurable! He must be smart; he was able to make film after film, while barely speaking! He has a knack for physical comedy which can be very difficult to deliver launched his career and he was able to keep up that momentum. In a world dominated by looks and the dashing leading man, Atkinson comes flying in with his parodies and jokes and kills it! He puts off this shy, endearing quality that makes us love his even more.


President-elect Donald Trump is currently the most polarizing figure on earth. Despite his masses of riches and possessions, he is not thought to be a smart man because of his outlandish statements. However, his IQ of 156 classifies him as a genius.


Lady Gaga IQ is estimated at 166, which is considered as a genius and in top 0.1% the population of the world.
