Dumb on screen, smart in real life.
Are you smarter than the celebrities you follow? Maybe, but there are certainly a lot of celebrities who are smarter than you. Their academic and mental intellect will blow off your mind.
It is said that never judge a book by its cover, but we always forget this when it comes to judging a person.
Just because someone is a talented actor, director or dancer doesn't mean that he or she turned to arts because they were bad at studies. The fact is that some of the celebrities you admire have insane IQ level and crazy degrees.
We at WittyFeed have compiled the list of 14 celebrities who are probably smarter than you.
