Celebrities aren’t all as dumb as they look. Yes, we know, some of them can look pretty dumb, but in many ways that is a part of the show. Think about it. Celebrities have to build a “persona.” This persona is the image of themselves that they project to the world. It may be the “bad boy” persona, the “good girl” persona, the “dumb redneck” persona, and the list goes on.
A good example would be comedians. Even when they are doing interviews or just hanging around in the spotlight, they can still hide behind their persona. The same holds true for politicians. Actually, don’t even get us started on that one. Politicians are so guilty of this that it’s not even funny. Of course, that is why you will find both actors and politicians on our list. In fact, you might find some that are both actors and politicians. The governator anybody?
So no matter what your opinion is of these celebrities. Even if you hate them with a very unfounded passion, you still cannot deny that they are most likely not the way they present themselves to the public. These are 25 celebrities that are smarter than their image would lead you to believe!

"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan
Jim Duggan (whose nickname is Hacksaw) was a plant biologist before he started his wrestling career.
Famous for his role in the Hangover, Ken is a practicing physician.
Although he is often made out to fit the dumb giant mold, the way he has conducted his business affairs shows otherwise. In fact, he even received an Ed.D. (Doctor of Education).
While he might not be quite the math genius he plays in Good Will Hunting, he did go to Harvard.
The fact that he wrote the script for Rocky speaks volumes.
