When news first broke that Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman hooked up at Cannes, no one really believed it.

After all, Tarantino had been pursuing Thurman for decades, describing her as his "muse," stuffing his films with unsettling extended close-ups of her feet, and having John Travolta plunge a hypodermic into her chest in Pulp Fiction because he figured that was the closest he'd get to penetration.

Well consider us fully shocked, because based on photos from last night, it seems that Q has finally scored his U:

That's Quentin and Uma leaving Mr. Chow in LA last night, and in addition to the fact that they're sneaking out the backdoor, they seem awfully close for two folks that aren't dating, wouldn't you say?

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 ...

After decades of creepily giving her feet starring roles in his movies, Quentin Tarantino has reportedly finally sealed the deal with his longtime muse, Uma Thurman.

Tarantino and Thurman were in Cannes recently to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of Pulp Fiction, and rumor has it they shared more than the spotlight.

Us Weekly reports that Quentin and Uma stayed in the same villa during the festival. The arrangement has naturally sparked rumors as Thurman recently broke up with Arpad Busson and Tarantino is believed to have been in love with the actress since they first collaborated in 1994.

"They had a thing and got together again recently," a source tells the tabloid. "He's loved her for years... She has indulged him from time to time and that's how their relationship has worked."

Gawker Media responded to a lawsuit filed by Quentin Tarantino over his leaked script, claiming linking to something online is not the same as publishing it.

The company made it clear that its Defamer celebrity gossip site isn't backing down after linking to "The Hateful Eight" script on third-party file-sharing sites.

Tarantino's suit against Gawker accuses the media group of "predatory journalism" and facilitating the dissemination of the director's leaked movie script.

The item leaked last week after he gave it to a handful of actors; Tarantino said he was so outraged that he is now shelving plans to make the film.

The suit says Gawker went beyond "publishing a news story reporting that plaintiff's screenplay may have been circulating in Hollywood without his permission."

Rather, he claims "Gawker Media crossed the journalistic line by promoting itself to the public as the first source to read the entire screenplay illegally."

With its "enjoy!" tone (not to mention the traffic it no doubt garnered from this) Gawker certainly didn't feel bad for Quentin ... but that legal argument is tough.

Quentin Tarantino is suing celebrity gossip site Gawker following the leak of his script for The Hateful Eight, which he is no longer making into a movie.

The famed director filed suit accusing the blog of the following:

"Blatant copyright infringement by the promotion and dissemination of unauthorized downloadable copies of the leaked unreleased complete screenplay."

"There was nothing newsworthy or journalistic" about it, Tarantino alleges.

He is seeking damages reportedly in excess of $1 million for the action.

Furthermore, while Gawker did not post the script to its own site, Tarantino says it would not have been widely accessible if Gawker had not linked to it. Often.

Gawker turned down repeated requests to remove links to download the script, the complaint charges. A Gawker post offering links to it is still online.

The celebrity gossip site did not respond to a request for comment.

The Hateful Eight is/was a Western, the same genre as Tarantino's 2012 hit Django Unchained, which won him an Academy Award for writing.
