Rashida Jones was born among artistic geniuses. Her father, Quincy Jones, is a famous musician, music producer, composer, and film producer with 80 Grammy Award nominations and 28 wins. And her mother, Peggy Lipton, was a famous 1960s actress. Needless to say, Rashida saw talent from an early age.
She was very involved in the theater and music departments whilst studying for her Bachelor’s in comparative religion at Harvard University; it probably wasn’t so hard for her, considering her IQ of 140! Rashida even wrote her own music scores and campus plays, many of which she performed herself. She is best known for her many appearances on “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation,” and countless roles in light comedies alongside Jason Segal, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, and the like.
158 - Laura Shields
With an IQ of 158, Laura Shields was never your typical model/actress. In fact, she graduated with honors from Leeds University, with a chemical engineering master’s degree, no less! Born in the UK, Shields started a modeling career at a young age, eventually winning the title of Miss UK in 2004.
A few years after her win, she tried her hand in acting but a real career in the field was never in store for her. She has no more than five credits to her name, one of them being uncredited, and another in a Justin Timberlake music video. However, with that kind of brain, we are sure that whatever non-showbiz path she has taken, she is doing great. Shields is a member of Mensa, the high IQ society.
147 - Jim Morrison
With an IQ of 147, Jim Morrison certainly had the brains to back up his musical genius. Not to mention being one of the most handsome musicians in rock n' roll history. Morrison earned his Bachelor's degree in Film from UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) and even created several short films during his time there, but it looks like it never turned into a full-blown career in the field.
Morrison moved to Venice Beach shortly after and became an icon of the Bohemian lifestyle and the hippie movement of the 60s. There he met The Doors band members, who were mesmerized by Morrison's unique poetry and writing abilities.
160 - Sylvester Stallone
You'd be hard-pressed to find a single person that doesn't know who Sylvester Stallone is. If you don't know him from the legendary Rocky series, you will surely know him from any of the five Rambo films. But contrary to the image of the strong, brute he usually portrays in films, Stallone is incredibly smart and a very talented writer.
In fact, did you know that Rocky has an IQ of 160?! The same as Stephen Hawking. Stallone has received 3 nominations for an Academy Award, won a Golden Globe, been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, and was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Unknown - John Lithgow
John Lithgow is most known for his epic role in "3rd Rock From the Sun." He had an early start in the theater world, thanks to his dad being a big theater producer. Lithgow became an outstanding actor, with unforgettable roles in "The World According to Garp" and "Terms of Endearment," both of which got him an Academy Award nomination.
Apart from being a talented actor, Lithgow also has a brilliant mind. He graduated magna cum laude with a degree in history and literature. And, he even sat on the Board of Overseers at Harvard! Lithgow received a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship after he graduated, which allowed him to study at the famous London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
