There actually quite a lot of smart actors in the business!  This isn't too much of a surprise because some actors really use their brains to analyze and portray their characters well in any given situation, but still did you realize that they were this genius?

Chemical and bio molecular engineering?! Dang I can barely get through Chem 101 lol.

High IQ doesn't really mean anything. We still have to work as hard as everyone else to succeed. This list is so ridiculous lmao yes, some of them deserve to be in it, but some are not. Oh and btw, you left out actor Lee Sang Yoon, a Physics major who graduated from SNU. I always have respect to people who love physics, because I sucked at it so fcking bad, I had to let go of my dream to be an aeronautical engineer. And this comes from someone with IQ of 139. So no, high IQ doesn't mean anything.
