A lot of people think being an actor or a model is easy, you see these people on screen and think they made it just by being good looking. Well you might be surprised to hear that there are a lot of smart celebrities out there who would be just fine even without their fame. Check this list of smart celebrities below:

2. Dolph Lundgren
Ok, at the first look a tough guy with a big gun, but what a very few know the Dolphster actually has an IQ of 160. He also used his intelligent wisely; he speaks five languages and holds a masters in chemical engineering ( we don’t know if he was a classmate with Cindy).
