Beauties With Big Brains Honorable Mentions
Tuesday’s post on intelligent female celebrities managed to make it to the front page of Digg with over 100 comments, many of which were complaining about the lack of inclusion of different celebs. There were definitely some worthy people left off the list, so I figured an honorable mention list was in order. So here we go!
Background: One of the most famous models in the world, was featured in massive Pepsi and Diet Pepsi marketing campaigns in the 90′s, hosted House of Style on MTV from 1989 to 1995.
Evidence of brains: Crawford graduated from DeKalb High School as valedictorian with a 4.0 GPA, and had a scholarship to Northwestern to study chemical engineering (although she left after one semester to pursue her modeling career).
Why she’s hot: The mole. Duh. Pretty clearly the secret to her wealth and fame.
Background: Got her start as a go-go dancer in New Jersey but eventually graduated to adult films, landing a contract with Vivid after putting together a “demo” porn tape in 1993. Retired from porn in 2003.
Evidence of brains: Played the piano at Carnegie Hall twice before the age of 15. Taught English at Tsuruga College in Japan at the age of 16. Received a full scholarship to Rutgers and is a current member of Mensa.
Why she’s hot: People have shelled out lots of money to see her naked over the years, which has to be evidence of something.
Background: Won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Mighty Aphrodite. Starred in Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion opposite Lisa Kudrow.
Evidence of brains: Graduated magna cum laude in East Asian Studies from Harvard. Fluent in Mandarin Chinese and also speaks French.
Why she’s hot: Doesn’t seem to take herself too seriously, as you can see by her role in Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion. Which was pretty underrated. No, for real, watch it sometime. Plus she seems to uh, know how to take down an ice cream cone.
Background: Actress in the 1930′s and 40′s. One of the first actresses to show her breasts on film. Also one of the first actresses to fake an orgasm for the camera. Meg Ryan owes this woman quite alot. Was Delilah in Cecil B. DeMille’s Samson and Delilah.
Evidence of brains: Lamarr coinvented the first form of spread spectrum, which is the basis for pretty much all modern wireless communication.
Why she’s hot: Lamarr never had trouble finding guys to fawn over her. She was married six times. Also was arrested for petty shoplifting in both 1965 and 1991 and there’s just something hot about a klepto.
Background: Started out as a model before getting her break in the film Tootsie. Received an Oscar as Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Accidental Tourist.
Evidence of brains: Very talented musician, plays the piano, flute, drums, and organ. Member of Mensa. Fluent in Swedish.
Why she’s hot: A smile so big you kind of wonder if she has more teeth than the average human being.
Background: One of the biggest actresses in Hollywood today with over twenty feature films under her belt. Recently won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line.
Evidence for brains: Attended Stanford University as a literature major before leaving to pursue her acting career.
Why she’s hot:: Was she annoying in Legally Blonde? Oh yeah. But you have to admit that she was also pretty damn hot.
Background: Attended Bayside High School. Went on to be a stripper in Vegas, or something.
Evidence of brains: Class president and salutatorian of Bayside (damn Screech beat her out for valedictorian by a fraction of a point).
Why she’s hot: Let her high school boyfriend call her “Mama” so you know she’s kinky. Get her all hopped up on caffeine pills and who knows what might happen.
Background: Television actress best known for her work as Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years.
Evidence of brains: Graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a major in mathematics. Has an Erd?s-Bacon number, which some people might find attractive. Author of the upcoming book Math Doesn’t Suck: How to Survive Middle-School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail.
Why she’s hot: McKellar was the actress whose absence seemed to cause the most consternation amongst diggers. Countless 12 year old boys in the early 90′s went to bed every night wondering why Winnie Cooper couldn’t live on their block.
