Celebrities, the objects of our obsessions, pretty faces for whom we pine, hot bodies of both the male and female variety. But they're more than just the sum of their parts.

They're actually pretty darn smart, too. Well, some of them are.

We could argue that all of them are smart for being able to make a career out of being on television and in movies and getting paid to wear designer clothes.

On the flip side, we have the likes of Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan and Justin Bieber to consider. We're not calling them dumb, but...

Anyway, there are a shocking number of Ivy Leaguers, magna cum laude graduates and members of Mensa in Hollywood. Forget film and TV; they've published papers and earned Ph.Ds. 

Here are 31 celebrities who are really, really smart ...

It's safe to say Jodie Foster has now come out of the closet.

The veteran actress, who hinted very strongly that she's gay in a moving Golden Globes speech last year, married photographer Alexandra Hedison over the weekend.

E! News broke this exciting story, as a rep for the Oscar winner confirms that the year-long couple is now Wife and Wife.

Said Foster in January 2013 at the aforementioned awards ceremony:

Jodie Foster and rumored girlfriend Alexandra Hedison grabbed breakfast together in Beverly Hills Sunday, confirming rumors that they are in fact dating.

The outing makes the first public appearance since reports surfaced last week that the Academy Award-winning actress, 50, was "totally in love" with Hedison.

It's not clear when they began dating, but Alexandra, a photographer and former actress (The L Word) has previously been linked to Ellen DeGeneres.

The new couple comes less than a year after Foster thanked her ex and co-parent, Cydney Bernard, in an emotional speech at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.

The remarks were widely seen as an official coming out by Foster, who had never publicly addressed her sexuality in her nearly four decades of stardom.

Following Jodie Foster's Golden Globe speech, during which she indirectly came out as a lesbian for the first time, a number of questions have arisen.

Among them: Who is the father of her sons, 14-year-old and Charles and 12-year-old Kit, whom she co-parents with former partner Cydney Bernard?

Speculation has long been that the late producer Randy Stone, Jodie’s confidante, is the father of the boys, who were by their mom's side Sunday.

Not surprisingly, given the somewhat pointed nature of her speech, Jodie has never commented on the subject - not even to Charlie and Kit themselves.

Understandably, Jodie Foster's Golden Globes speech sparked discussion raised a lot of questions Sunday night. Three main points she sought to clarify:

  1. She's NOT retiring from acting, despite strong allusions to doing so.
  2. She is extremely close with Mel Gibson and is not ashamed of this.
  3. The "coming out" portion of her speech is what it is.

In her wide-ranging speech, the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award winner, 50, acknowledged that she's gay and seemed to hint at retirement.

However, on the latter topic, she told reporters a different story later.

Jodie Foster left some people bewildered, others in tears and everyone rived with a long, wide-ranging and emotional speech at the 2013 Golden Globes.

Honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement Sunday, the actress, 50, addressed everything from her sexuality to her ailing mother.

"While I'm here being all confessional, I guess I just have just a sudden urge to say something that I've never really been able to air in public," she said.

"[It's] a declaration that I'm a little nervous about - but maybe not quite as nervous as my publicist right now. I'm just going to put it out there - loud and proud."

After a short hesitation and plea for support, she said: "I am single."
