It appears that people with great intellectual abilities are drawn to one another like Kylie Jenner to lip injections. Harvard randomly paired Al Gore, with an IQ of 134, with another person from this list — Tommy Lee Jones. The two were roommates during their freshman year, and that pairing was so successful that they continued living together for years.
Gore’s high IQ could also be how he became so successful as a climate change activist and politician. The former Vice President (1993-2001) served under Bill Clinton, who you can also find on this list. His book and documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” became a huge success as well.
Unknown - George Lucas
Even those who are not fans of the “Star Wars” franchise must know George Lucas and have to admit that the man is a genius, especially when it comes to filmmaking. Though the world of film has been forever changed by his ingenuity and creative mind, Lucas almost didn’t pursue his movie dreams. In fact, his college studies included anthropology, sociology, and literature.
It was only when he began studying at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts that his interest in film flourished. Lucas’s ability to push the limits of film technology has resulted in him creating works of cinematic art.
160 - Ashton Kutcher
Yes, it's Christopher Ashton Kutcher, and no, you're not being Punk'd! This American actor started acting in his teenage years. His career only grew from there, but beyond entertainment, he's the founder of a venture capital firm called A-Grade Investments.
Kutcher is known for taking dumb character roles in films and television (namely the air-headed Michael Kelso in "That 70s Show"), but in reality, he is a genius as an actor and as a math wiz. His success in both professions is because of his IQ level of 160, and success comes naturally to people with that level of intelligence.
140 - Claire Danes
American Actress Claire Catherine Danes has four Golden Globe Awards, three Emmy Awards, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. She was named one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" in "Time Magazine" and established her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at a very young age.
She got a good head-start in her career, allowing her to have experience by being part of numerous films and television shows. You've seen her evolve from a sweet girl to a strong independent woman right on your screens, but did you know that Claire has an IQ of 140?
135 - Tommy Lee Jones
Tommy Lee Jones is an American filmmaker and actor who is known as one of the last great actors that can effectively play the "strong, silent type." He has four Academy Award nominations under his belt, and one win for Best Supporting Actor, for the 1993 thriller film, "The Fugitive", as US Marshal Samuel Gerard.
Throughout his career, Jones was able to portray real-life individuals, like Howard Hughes, Congressman Thaddeus Stevens, Murderer Gary Gilmore, Douglas MacArthur, Oliver Lynn, and Ty Cobb. All of which he performed flawlessly. Who would have ever thought that he also holds a high IQ of 135?
