List Rules All of the women on this list are known smarties. Rank them in order of their hotness.

A list of the world's sexy lady geniuses, ranked by hotness. OK, maybe they're not all 'geniuses' by your fancy standards (probably an IQ of 140+), but every woman on this list is a hell of a lot smarter than I am - which, admittedly, isn't saying much. Many of these gals are even members of the high IQ society Mensa International, including porn actress Asia Carrera and respected actress Geena Davis. "IQ tests don't mean anything," you say? "Which IQ test did they take, exactly?" you demand to know? I don't have the answers - but when researching, I did see a comment on one article that suggested it was possible to study for an IQ test. I don't think that guy had ever taken one. Anyway, other ladies on this list are just some of the smartest female celebrities, proving so by being multilingual, earning degrees from top universities, and/or studying and working in all sorts of complicated academic fields. These hot female geniuses are not only some of the best looking women on earth, but they have the brains to match.

While many on this list of the smartest famous women won't surprise you - like obviously Jennifer Connelly is a whiz; just look at her perceptive eyes - a few of the brilliant beauties on this list may come as a shock. For example, blonde bombshell Jayne Mansfield was known for her knockout body and sultry pout, but underneath all that platinum hair, she was reportedly one of few female celebrities with a genius-level IQ. Likewise, controversial-but-enduring entertainer Madonna's IQ reportedly hovers well above average, and sexy Sharon Stone's is even higher. And, of course, my girlfriend Natalie Portman had a 4.0 GPA, went to Harvard, and can tell me she loves me in 5 languages. But you already knew that, didn't you? She's perfect.

This list includes celebrities who went to Ivy League schools and famous female alumni of other top colleges, as well as several of the smartest porn stars and smartest actresses. Vote up the sexiest smart women to move them forward in this slideshow, and you know what? Don't vote down anyone. That's rude. These ladies never did anything to you.

Check out these pics of hot smart girls. These sexy smart girls are basically rocket scientists-ish. And not only that, they are some of the most attractive female celebrities.
