15 Hottest Nerds In Cinematic History

What the hell is a nerd these days? In the past, at least in the movies, anyone who wore glasses was pretty much a nerd. There were all those people who were interested in the sciences or mathematics as well, video games, comics or anything computer related. Essentially, nerdiness comes from intelligence mixed in with a little bit of quirkiness and a serving of social awkwardness. Things have changed, but we're suckers for tradition.

Now that we've settled on a definition, we can deal with the political correctness of this whole thing. There's none. If you checked in, you expected it, so leave your groans and your eye-rolls at the door. You may be able to argue that a movie character from this list isn't a nerd, but if you were asked to give one word that describes each of the characters on this list, you'd likely say nerd or maybe geek, so don't pretend you're above generalizations. Oh, you'd also say delightfully gorgeous, too. That's the most important bit. Ranking above intelligence, much better than temperament, and of course, more significant than one's personality is their beauty. If movies have taught us anything, it's that beauty is the one thing that every woman needs if they're going to be important.

That's why each of the nerdy women on this list are so pretty. If they weren't, they wouldn't be starring in feature films and we certainly wouldn't be writing about them. These geeks are necessary for the world. Each of them act as a mirage for nerdy men (or women, depending on your preference). One glimpse of the ladies herein is enough to fuel a nerd's search for years. Many of us have searched long and hard for intelligent women who look like those on this list, but hot nerdy girls are like unicorns, there is just enough of them to let us know that they exist. Still, we keep looking. In the real world, you're on your own, but we've hunted down the ones in film for you. Here are the 15 hottest nerds in cinematic history.

1 Lt. Nyota Uhura – Star Trek

Call us crazy, but Lt. Nyota Uhura is the hottest person on the Enterprise. Keep in mind that we're talking about the new Uhura played by Zoe Saldana and not the old one played by Nichelle Nichols; back then the hottest person on the Enterprise was Montgomery Scott played by James Doohan, no doubt about it. In the JJ Abrams Star Trek films, Uhura is like some type of nerd fantasy. Apparently in the future, perfect-looking people can also be smart, which is just about the craziest thing we've ever heard. How does that even make sense? How do they do all that reading while they're working on their image and fashion sense? Crazy talk. But, how can you challenge the logic of the future? We'll just have to wait and see if these crazy fantasies come true.
