    Yeah but instead of pursuing their interests some of them became brainless celebs instead. Doesn`t seem to smart or geeky to me.

    As much as I love The Offspring, and I do, I would have taken the award away from Dexter and given it to Greg Graffin, the lead singer of Bad Religion. The guy`s got a Ph.D. in evolutionary biology!

    I wanna be famous too! Too bad the only screen time I had was an ad back when I was 13. Not very impressive credentials.

    Second, but that`s because he`s the only one I would really consider a nerd. Or the porn star simply for the UT skins.

    other then seeing one of my favorite pictures of natalie portman this was the lamest link ive seen in a wile. shes nice to look at if only she could act i might be able to stand to watch one of her movies.

    LordJonathan wile i agree that acting isnt a mentally demanding job how does being a actor or musician make someone brainless? you thing if someone is smart they automatically dedicate ther like to finding a cure for aids or designing aircrafts for the government that will never be seen by the public in ther life time and spend all ther free time reading complex books about ther given field of expertise?

    I thought it was only a rumour (or a hoax) that Vin Diesel plays D&D.
    And....Asia Carrera - the porn star - is a member of MENSA?!?!
    I still can`t believe it. It`s like nothing makes sense anymore.

    Vin Diesel was surprising 2 c on the list.

    But where do these people have time to get really smart, and rather good at their jobs???

    yes, because celebrities who actually do something somewhat productive in their lives are "geeks" and should be exiled from the community forever.

    of course they should all be like britney spears. and paris hilton and all them. isn`t that how they`re supposed to act?

    articles like this piss me off.

    Most of them didn`t have geeky interests, and instead were just really smart and studious...doesn`t that make them nerds instead of geeks?

    I think acting is an underrated profession. I think we have this "academic" bias in society when it comes to considering things to be intelligent. To be one of the most succesful actors you have to be smart. You have to be able to read deeply into a script, you have to be able to get your head around a complex character, you have to be able to act like someone else, you have to be able to empathize and really understand emotions, you have to memorize tons of lines, etc. etc.

    Strikes me as a pretty mentally demanding job.

    What about Steven Hawkins and Bill Gates? Those are practically celebrities. This article should be renamed to "...celebrities in the entertainment industry..." In fact, I`m sure Bill Gates is more famous than anyone on that list, because people in non-Western culture may not know Vin Diesel, but they`ll probably know Bill Gates. The left out people in sports also.

    There are others as well. Heaps of musicians and actors and such are geeks. I mean, My Chemical Romance play with Gym Class Heroes on WoW. While Fall Out Boy are addicted to Wii Sports.

    And the list is called "Celebrities you didn`t know were geeks" Putting Bill Gates on that list would be very silly because everyone knows he`s pretty much the biggest geek in the world.

    good grades != geek, BTW.
    Star wars/trek craze, RPg playing, Gamerism does, though.

    And srsly, how awkward msut it for the children of a porn star. Your mom jokes are now actually offensive, as they might be true.
