Who would have thought that underneath all that hair gel and bronzer that Vinny Guadagnino is quite the studious gentleman?

The Jersey Shore star recently revealed to The Daily, that not only did he graduate from State University of New York at New Paltz with a 3.9 GPA, but he even took the LSAT!

Since we are ever so impressed at Vinny's study skills, we thought we'd dig up some other celebrities with secret smarts.

Parks and Rec star Rashida Jones and American's Next Top Model host Tyra Banks are both Harvard ladies, while James Franco has not only a bachelor's from UCLA, but a masters from Colombia and is currently working on his PhD at Yale.

To find out who else is a closet nerd (which we mean in the best way possible!) take a look through the gallery.

Which celeb with smarts do you find the most surprising? Sound off in the comments!
