It shouldn't be surprising news, but here's a bombshell for you: Not all famous actors and singers are dumb. (Here's looking at Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber, anyone who's ever dated Justin Bieber, and any celeb who mixes up "your," "you're," and "yore" and/or "there," "their" and "they're" on Twitter.) But some successful celebrities had to use their brains and their beauty to get to where they are today.
It makes sense when you think about it: A pretty face or a buff bod can make you famous, but it takes intelligence and sense to remain relevant for the right reasons.

Lisa Kudrow played a “dumb blonde” character during her 10-year stint on “Friends”. Lisa’s dad is a world-renowned headache specialist and physician.
Naturally, she followed his footsteps and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, with plans of researching for an ultimate cure for headaches.
Prior to being an actress, Lisa worked for eight years with her dad.
She earned research credit by participating in his study on “comparative likelihood of left-handed individuals developing cluster headaches.” Whew.
My cats are prettier than most people, but I make sure that they know that they need to be smart. They sass me a lot, but that’s not a problem, considering the fact that it’s an indication that I have raised them well.
