Whoever said that women cannot be beautiful and smart at the same time is mistaken. This list of the 10 famous women who possess stunning beauty & have got the brains to rival any geek out there is proof of this.

10 Jennifer Connelly

Tenth place on this list is Jennifer Connelly. You may know her for her movies including The Rocketeer, Requiem for a Dream, Blood Diamond, A Beautiful Mind, Inventing the Abbotts, and Career Opportunities. She is best known for her mesmerizing eyes (and a few other body parts), making her one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. However, she is not only pretty, she is also brainy. She attended Yale University for two years, majoring in English, before she transferred to Stanford University, where she completed her Bachelor’s degree. She is fluent in both Italian and French.

9 Aisha Tyler

Aisha Tyler is best known for her TV shows including 24, Ghost Whisperer, Television’s Talk Soup, and Friends. There are many things that make her beautiful to the eyes of viewers, including her height and her overall physical attributes. However, aside from being tall and beautiful, she also has a great sense of humor, which is evident in her stand-up comedian career. She is also smart, having graduated from Dartmouth where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Government, with an Environmental Policy minor. Aisha Tyler, in addition to being a successful poker player, is also fluent in Swahili, French, and Russian.

8 Hedy Lamarr

Hedy Lamarr is a star that graced the films of the 30's and 40's. She was frequently given the roles of a seductress, mainly because of her great looks rather than her talents and skills in acting. However, this does not decrease her beauty in any way. While her educational credentials are not formally and well documented, it is said that she has been a contributor to the early version of the U.S. spread spectrum technology, after having partnered with the famous composer George Antheil. This concept was then incorporated into the Internet Wi-Fi and wireless telephones.

7 Famke Janssen

Famke Janssen is best known for her roles in the movies X-Men, as Jean Grey; Golden Eye, as a villainess; and Taken, as the wife of Liam Neeson’s character. One of the greatest factors that make her beautiful and hot is her character in the Bond movie Golden Eye, where she crushed and killed men to death using her thighs. Add this to the fact that she attended Columbia University where she studied writing and literature, and took Economics after at the University of Amsterdam. The result is definitely someone who is beautiful and brainy at the same time.

6 Elisabeth Shue

You may know Elisabeth Shue in her movies including the Hollow Man, Leaving Las Vegas, The Karate Kid, and Adventures in Babysitting. While many girls get their hot image from playing the girl version of ‘bad boys’, Shue has always been (and probably will always be) the nice and friendly girl next door. Elisabeth Shue is also smart, having attended Wellesley College and the Harvard University. Yes, she left Harvard in the mid 80's so she can focus on her acting career, but she went back 15 years later to complete her studies in Government.

5 Dr. Victoria Zdrok

While many know Dr. Victoria Zdrok for all her spreads in the adult magazine Playboy, she is more than just a Playboy bunny. She is very beautiful, which is evident in her achievements in the Playboy industry, being both the October 1994 Playboy Playmate of the Month and the June 2002 Penthouse Pet of the Month. What many do not know about her is that she actually skipped high school and went straight to college. She graduated summa cum laude from the West Chester University in Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s degree at the early age of 18. She then proceeded to obtain a JD law degree and a Ph.D. in psychology from the Villanova Law School and the Drexel University.

4 Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale is best known for her roles in Click, Underworld, Pearl Harbor, Van Helsing, and Serendipity. She is so beautiful that she gave vampire films a whole new meaning. She is also a regular recipient of ranks in the lists of hot women as well as gracing covers of magazines including Maxim and FHM. She attended Oxford University, where she studied Russian and French literature for three years. When she was still a teenager, she won two W.H. Smith Young Writer’s competitions for her very own poems and short stories. She is also fluent in German, Russian, and French.

3 Aishwarya Rai

While Aishwarya Rai is not a famous Hollywood actress, she is famous in the Bollywood industry. She has made dozens of movies in Bollywood. Aside from these accomplishments, she is also the recipient of the 1994 Miss World pageant award. She has also been declared as the most beautiful woman ever in numerous magazine articles, web polls, and even by Julia Roberts herself. Aishwarya Rai does not only have the looks: she also has the brains. She was a straight A student while she was studying at India’s prestigious Ruparel College. She is also fluent in many different languages, including English, Tamil, Marathi, and Hindi.

2 Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford has graced the covers of numerous magazines. Even at the age of 40, she is still gorgeous. She is also very smart, graduating as her high school’s valedictorian with a GPA of 4.0. She enrolled at the Northwestern University to take up chemical engineering, where she got a full academic scholarship.

1 Natalie Portman

The number one spot on this list of the 10 famous beauty and brain chicks is none other than Natalie Portman. Star Wars, The Professional, and Garden State are just some of her greatest movies. Just look at her and there is no need to explain why she is beautiful. Her looks are not the only thing that made her so popular – she is also very intelligent. She graduated from her high school with a GPA of 4.0. She attended Harvard University where she obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
