Education has become a valued, albeit expensive necessity that one partakes in order to be more desirable on the job market. Meaning you go to school so you can get a better job and make more money. Rarely is going to school for just the education happening anymore. When it comes to being a celebrity, there is a stigma that you’re not that bright. Perhaps the inspiration behind the stereotype comes from the fact that there have been numerous stars in the past who headed to Hollywood as soon as they graduated high school to make it big. There is also the stereotype that there isn’t a lot of intelligence required to be an actor, which simply isn’t true. The fact of the matter is, there are quite a few brilliant celebrities who grace the red carpet on the regular basis. In fact, you can even get a Master’s degree in acting, since the craft does require a decent skill set. Meryl Streep holds a Master of Fine Arts in acting from Yale University. So, this is by no means, a sham degree at all. Given that Streep has had one of the most successful careers in the industry today, that advanced degree probably did her a lot of good training wise.
But what makes a celebrity more brilliant above the rest? Graduating from high school is one thing, but to balance a career plus going to school gives one major props. While many celebrities got their degrees before they made it big, there’s a good number that decided to go to school after they became a household name. This is quite admirable, as they went to school primarily for the purpose of learning more, not just getting the degree for a job prospect. For example, Mayim Bialik, who plays Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on “The Big Bang Theory” has her PhD degree in neuroscience, which she pursued after her time on Blossom was over.
Acting skills aside, many of Hollywood’s hottest celebrities are not only exceptionally beautiful, but they are also quite smart. Many of time hold multiple degrees, such as James Franco, who holds degrees from schools such as UCLA, Columbia, and NYU. Franco has even taught a few college courses himself ranging from English literature to film studies. Imagine walking into your classroom and seeing an A-list celebrity! There are some celebrities who even used to be medical doctors, such as Ken Jeong, who rose to fame after the smash hit, “The Hangover.” He went to medical school and is a licensed obstetrician.
On this list, we have Kate Beckinsale, Jennifer Connelly, Edward Norton, David Duchovny, James Woods, Dolph Lundgren, Tommy Lee Jones, and Natalie Portman. Celebs like Jennifer and Natalie speak multiple languages and pursued their degrees after they made it big. Then you have James Woods who made the decision to pursue acting later in life, after he had gotten his education. In closing, if you’re wanting to be like a celebrity, then maybe instead of getting makeovers and going shopping, you should be hitting the books instead!
