When we are on a quest to improve our IQ, we can also feel eager to know the IQ of celebrities. Some of us are in awe of celebrities and would like to believe if they really have a high or above average IQ or are simply giving bytes of sound to the media based on their efficient PR. There are many well-known personalities who have always been known for their IQ. Some were born smart, while others gained IQ with their stardom. These are some of the famous personalities with high IQs:

Famous Emmy Award-winning actor James Wood is known for having an IQ of 180. He has starred in famous films such as Ghosts of Mississippi and Once Upon a Time in America.

Despite the fact that many celebrities are known to be part of high IQ societies like Mensa, there is almost no adequate evidence for the same. For example, many people know that Sharon Stone was a member of Mensa; however, in 2002, he revealed that he had never associated himself as a member with Mensa. On the contrary, he claims to have attended the Mensa school; however, a Mensa official clarified that there were no Mensa schools during the 1960s when Stone was studying.

On the Internet you can find a lot of information about celebrities with high IQs. However, there is no evidence that the facts mentioned on various websites are genuine. Many celebrities are misused by publicly mentioning their IQ to show how smart they are, in addition to the talent they professionally display.
