There’s a common misconception about major Hollywood stars—that they’re all overpaid drama queens who probably couldn’t find their own city on a map. However, the reality is much different. Some of the most unlikely mega-stars actually have incredibly high IQ scores. One can’t help but wonder how this has affected their careers.
Conan O’Brien – IQ 160
