The Epitome of Beauty and Brains

In this world where vanity takes its toll, we, somehow, have to take a step back and re-evaluate ourselves.

The world is just not about having a gorgeous body or who has the fewer wrinkles.. botox anyone?

These girls strengthen the fact that it's not really enough to be just a DROP DEAD GORGEOUS GAL.. 

The Epitome of  Beauty and Brains

Danica McKellar
The girl- next- door Winnie Cooper in the Wonder Years. She earned her degree in Mathematics in UCLA. She graduated as Summa Cum Laude. She is the author of the best selling books Math Doesn't Suck: How to Survive Middle-School Math without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail, Kiss My Math: Showing Pre-Algebra Who's Boss, Hot X: Algebra Exposed! a true Math Genius!

Natalie Portman
She played as Queen Amidala in the star wars, and a ballerina in the Black Swan where she won her an Oscar award for best actress. Amazingly, she was able to balance her acting career and get an education. She completed her bachelors degree in Psychology in Harvard University. She took graduate courses in Hebrew University of Jerrusalem in 2004.

Jodie Foster
 We remembered her for her Oscar award winning role as Clarice Starling in the american thriller film the Silence of the Lambs. She earned her degree in literature as Magna Cum Laude in Yale University.  

Mira Sorvino 
 We loved her for her role as Romy in Romy and Michelle's high school reunion. But she is well known for her academy award winning performance in Mighty Aphrodite. She is a magna cum laude
graduate with a degree in East Asian Studies in Harvard University.

Kristin Chenoweth
I loved her role as Olive Snook in Pushing Daisies where she won an Emmy award. She also won a Tony award for her role in the musical Wicked. She is a graduate of Oklahoma City University with  a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in musical theater and a master's in opera performance.

Ashley Judd
Our dear Norma Jean.. but I remember her more for her role in Someone Like You.  She has a bachelor's degree in French from the University of Kentucky and subsequently earned a Master's degree in Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in 2010. 
She is currently active in different humanitarian and political causes. She is a supporter of different charities and foundations such as Children's Medical Research Institute, Defenders of Wildlife, and YouthAIDS to name a few. 

Just remember being pretty is hot.. but being smart is hotter! Have a great weekend!
