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 ...

Danica McKellar
Danica McKellar might not have been as good a dancer as the others, but she's better at math than them. She's authored four books advocating math education for girls.

Famous people all have a certain glow, or mystique about them, but when it comes to the mothers of the celebrity universe, these ladies take it to a new level.

These are moms we would seriously like to ... have serious crushes on.

From seasoned veterans like Reese Witherspoon to new moms like Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian, these women haven't lost a step in terms of beauty.

In fact, seeing them balance their careers with parenthood just elevates our attraction to these - pardon the expression, it's meant as a compliment - MILFs.

Behold, 23 of the hottest celebrity moms we are crushing on hardcore:

Brooke Burke
A 42-year-old mother of four, Brooke Burke still looks like this. Jealous?!

Move over, Jennifer Aniston. You have some hot Cabo competition.

Kate Beckinsale flaunted her amazing bikini body while hanging out poolside in Los Cabos, Mexico, where Aniston is also on vacation at the moment.

Beckinsale was on vacation with her husband, Len Wiseman, and her daughter, Lily. That is one celebrity hot spot, given the presence of these beauties!

The 40-year-old looked half her age in the tiny two-piece with oversized sunglasses as she walked around with her hair pulled into a messy bun.

Your move, Jen.

For every outrageous Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj fashion clash, there's a more conventional Kate Beckinsale-Carrie Underwood showdown waiting to be voted upon.

Thank goodness for that.

No offense to Gaga or Nicki, but we thought both Kate and Carrie were among the couture champions on the red carpet at Sunday's Grammy Awards.

Then again, it's hard for either of them to look bad in anything. Case in point: The actress' short white dress and the singer's sparkly blue full-length gown.

Ricky Gervais zinged Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber.

George Clooney mocked Brad Pitt and joked that Michael Fassbender has a large penis.

Michelle Williams made us tear up via a gracious speech that focused on her daughter.

But the moment of the night on the 2012 Golden Globe Awards telecast belonged to Seth Rogen, who walked on stage to present an award alongside Kate Beckinsale - considered the Sexiest Woman Alive by some - and told the audience he was trying to conceal a "massive erection." Watch the quip below, along with Beckinsale's unplanned reaction:

Kate Beckinsale will not be winning any awards for Underworld Awakening, which opens this weekend. But her dress on the red carpet last night? Four star material!

The 2012 Golden Globe winners didn't contain many shockers, and the same was true of the pre-show red carpet. The stars we expect to look fabulous certainly did.

Giving Beckinsale a run for her money? Reese Witherspoon in red. The 35-year-old looked stylish and stunning, as did the 38-year-old Beckinsale. The only question ...

In honor of Kate Middleton's 30th birthday today, we decided to bestow some love upon the Duchess of Cambridge and her many famous namesakes here at THG.

We do cover an inordinate number of Kates, Katies, Katys and Katherines in our line of work, and we have to say, many of them are pretty fabulous.

Take a look at our Top 10 and vote for your favorite below!

10. Katherine Heigl. We used to love her on Grey's Anatomy. Since leaving that show on bad terms, she's gone on to ... what has she been in lately? Hmm.

9. Kate Upton. Victoria's Secret model / teenage Mark Sanchez girlfriend.

8. Kate Moss. Older, more famous, significantly lighter model.

7. Kate Gosselin. Groan. No introduction necessary.

6. Kate Beckinsale. Underworld Awakening badass!

4. Katy Perry. Fun fact - born Katheryn Hudson, the newly-single singer chose the stage name Katy Perry so as not to be confused with ... Kate Hudson!

3. Katharine McPhee. Major THG crush for a few years after her run on American Idol, now starring on the buzzed-about new show Smash on NBC!

2. Kate Winslet. One of the more talented and classy actresses around, and what can we say, we totally in the tank for the British. Which brings us to ...

1. Kate Middleton. She's royalty. In real life and here.

Who's your favorite Kate?

Maybe we were wrong.

In October, we questioned why Esquire would name Kate Beckinsale the Sexiest Woman Alive.

Is the actress beautiful? Of course. But we argued that Megan Fox should be permanently awarded this honor until senility set in.

However, Absolut Vodka has a message for the Beckinsale disbelievers: chew on these photos!

The sultry star is the new face and body of an Absolut ad campaign that proves Beckinsale is one of the most underrated sex symbols on the big screen. Click on the images below and you'll see why...

We get it, Esquire. You wanna be different.

For months, there's been non-stop talk about the hotness of Megan Fox. Incessant yammering abot how much money men would pay to see Olivia Wilde nude. Quiet whispers that Kate Gosselin is growing more gorgeous by the day.

Okay, we may have made the last one up, but the overall point remains the same: when it comes to discussion about the best looking females alive, there's little variety.

Hence, we're sure, Esquire's decision to name British actress Kate Beckinsale as the Sexiest Woman Alive. It's cool to be different, but come on.

At least make it seem like you believe what you claim. Beckinsale is perfectly attractive, but there are plenty other women by whom we'd prefer to be ridden. Do you agree?
