10. Jodie Foster:
It’s been said for years that this child actress turned adult Hollywood star and director is not too shabby in the brains category. She easily qualifies as a genius. You can see her in such films as “Nell”, “The Panic Room”, and her Academy Award winning turn as super smart FBI investigator Clarice in “Silence of the Lambs” alongside Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lector. She lives quietly with her two sons, and partner.
