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?
134- Al Gore
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.
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?
160 - Quentin Tarantino
We’re positive that some of you have been expecting the legendary Quentin Jerome Tarantino to be on this list. We can't blame you, we know how iconic he is, and we know that he's a genius. If you've seen any of his movies you kind of learn to expect it. For one to create films like Quentin's, you need to be a genius.
Non-linear storylines, satirical topics, beauty in violence, and peculiar ways of finishing films all allowed him to pave a career for himself. He has a knowledge that seems to transcend that of a typical director, and we know why: his IQ is over 160.
140 - Robin Williams
The late Robin McLaurin Williams was a legendary actor and comedian known for doing iconic roles like Mrs. Doubtfire, and voicing the Genie, in Disney's "Aladdin." It's incredible to know that all that fame started from a humble place, as he began as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Mr. Williams got his first spark of fame as an alien named Mork, in a sitcom entitled "Mork & Mindy." He was able to sustain a successful career throughout his life, until his tragic 2014 death. The world was devastated upon hearing that a genius comedian like him, with an IQ of 140 and someone who had brought so much happiness to the world had passed away.
