Surprisingly Studious Celebs (PHOTOS)

Being a celebrity isn’t rocket science, but that doesn’t mean some stars don’t have the brains to pull it off. In fact, a number of celebs are probably much smarter than you might think.

You may be surprised to discover that a ‘Jersey Shore’ star holds two Bachelor’s degrees (hint: it’s not Snooki), that a supermodel turned down a full scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University to pursue fashion, or that two leading role contenders at this year’s Academy Awards graduated from prestigious Ivy League programs.

Celebuzz has compiled a list of stars that are surprisingly astute. Checkout our gallery of celebrities whose star power is eclipsed only by their brain power.

    I'm glad you included schools other than the Ivies. An Ivy League school is only one option for those with brain power.
