21 Most Educated Celebrities


We often hear about celebrities who dropped out of school in order to make it big in the competitive world of showbiz, but there are also major stars who knew that they could only benefit from a top-notch education.

These famous people have earned their degrees at some of the most prestigious universities in the world and it’s time we give them a big round of applause for all their amazing achievements.

Here’s our list of 21 most educated celebrities:

1. Jodie Foster

Despite making a breakthrough in Hollywood at the tender age of 14, Jodie Foster didn’t allow fame to interfere with her education.

The Oscar-winning actress was already a huge star when she decided to put acting on hold and pursue an academic degree. Foster eventually received a Bachelor’s in English literature and an honorary Ph.D., both from the prestigious Yale University.

Foster, who has also acted in French movies, is fluent in the language and even dubbed herself in the French versions of her English-speaking movies. She is, however, quite modest and says that she’s an ordinary member of the film crew, comparing herself to a technician who simply knows how the industry works: how to read the lines, where to stand, where to look, and so on.

To quote her:

‘’I’m a member of the crew, like the best boy, the electrician. What I’m good at is making eyes at the camera.”

    Sorry, but ” educated” idiots is the more correct term. Never hire an Ivy League grad and especially Harvard/Kennedy School of Communosocialism as the very worst! Columbia College just turns out Propagandists/journalists that never follow the 9 basic rules of a true Journalism. Mostly, they are way over priced and not worth very much…

  • TMAN

    Seriously, most educated.

  • MotivesMatter

    Reese Witherspoon had one year in college (undergraduate freshman) and she’s making the “most educated” list? A lot of these guys are unimpressively educated.

  • Tony Vella

    Now, THERE’S a real degree.

  • lovingparentof2

    I don’t think attending college even counts as being smart. It depends on the college, area of study, how they did, etc. Lots of idiots go to college, and even graduate.

  • michael valdez

    Most of the acters and actresses may not have high educations but dosnt mean their dumb rob dyrdek didnt finish and taught himself how to read blue prints which are difficult to read and still makes alot of money

  • davidl1

    Receiving an honorary Ph.D. is “earned a degree”? Does the person who wrote this understand the meaning of honorary?

  • aubrey c gimarino

    Thank you because I well answer my assignment very well; O my gosh I well report tomorrow~€¢£Ifeel nervous

  • Nora-Adrienne Deret

    The only reason Dr. Bialik is still working on tv is to use that money to FUND her private research projects.

  • Michael Buchele

    Mayim Bialik happens to be an unconventional beauty GODDESS! Sure she’s a bit angular, but this woman certainly does not deserve to be on the ugly list.

  • These “lists” are such a crock — and biased by ONE person’s opinion — like “Top #” lists — “All Time”, etc. — and the author of this can’t write worth a plug nickel — redundancy & no proofreading. Such articles are absolute junk and a waste of time!
