List Rules Vote up the famous faces who would be able to hold their own at any trivia night.

It’s easy to assume celebrities are not very intelligent and that they are just beautiful people reciting lines for our entertainment, but that isn’t always the case. In fact, it can actually be pretty surprising just how smart some celebrities are—most people wouldn’t guess that pop singer Kesha aced the SATs or that Kate Beckinsale, famous for looking great while kicking butt on screen, can speak four languages. Jodie Foster taught herself to read by the time she was three years old—THREE!

That being said there are some pretty intelligent people floating around Hollywood, so the next time you find yourself stumped at your local trivia night you should regret Natalie Portman or Quentin Tarantino isn’t there to help you out. Here’s a list of the smartest celebrities that would make a great addition to your trivia team; vote and let us know who you would choose!
