The only thing better than a beautiful woman is a beautiful woman who can do your homework for you.  There are thousands of hot babes worth staring at, but only a handful of those babes can fix your blender, speed-alphabetize your DVD collection, and explain the inner-workings of a thermonuclear reactor in three different languages.  Those are the babes you need to hang on to, and we’re here to help.  When it comes to super-smart hotties, we’ve compiled the cream of the crop.  Check out these 10 Brilliant Babes:

JENNIFER CONNELLY

Where You’ve Seen Her:  Tons of movies, like Career Opportunities, Labyrinth, Rocketeer, A Beautiful Mind, Dark City, Requiem For A Dream, Hulk, Blood Diamond, and many more.

Why She’s Hot:  To sum it up in one word: Captivating eyes, beautiful smile, killer body, and great personality.  Okay, I guess it’s impossible to sum it up in one word. 

Look At How Smart She Is:  She studied English at Yale for two years, then transferred to Stanford to finish her studies.  Oh, and she’s also fluent in Italian and French, so when you express your undying love for her, she can tell you in three languages that she’s happily married with two kids.

FAMKE JANSSEN

Where You’ve Seen Her: She’s a former Victoria’s Secret Model, and has been in some films, like X-Men 1-3, House On Haunted Hill, Love&Sex, Made, and Goldeneye.  She was also on Nip/Tuck.

Why She’s Hot: She’s got a killer body and a "Dark Phoenix"-esque smile that dissintigrates every heart within a mile.  Also, she’s almost 6 feet tall, so she could probably deliver a pretty good ass kicking, which is super hot.

Look At How Smart She Is:  She studied Literature and Writing at Columbia University, and later she studied Economics at the University of Amsterdam, where they know how to economize pretty well.

AISHA TYLER

Where You’ve Seen Her:  Talk Soup, Friends, Ghost Whisperer, Balls of Fury, 24

Why She’s Hot:  Not only is she a mega babe, she also happens to have a wicked sense of humor, and pursued a career in stand-up comedy at one point.  She had to quit because the other comedians couldn’t perform while hiding boners.

Look At How Smart She Is:  She’s got a Dartmouth degree in Government and Environmental Policy. She’s written articles for countless magazines, published a book, and is currently gearing up to direct a movie that she also wrote.  Oh, and she can kick your ass at poker.

NATALIE PORTMAN

Where You’ve Seen Her:  Everywhere. She’s Natalie Portman.  She’s been in tons of movies, like Star Wars: Episodes IV-VI, Garden State, Closer, The Professional, V for Vendetta, Mars Attacks!, and The Other Boleyn Girl, among others.

Why She’s Hot:  Natalie first captured our hearts in The Professional at the tender age of 12, and she was the first wet dream of an entire generation.  Maturing into a major babe didn’t hurt at all.  She can pull off any character, from a girl-next-door (Garden State) to a sexy seductress (Closer), Natalie Portman always manages to be our ultimate dream girl.

Look At How Smart She Is:  She finished high school with a 4.0 GPA and got a Psychology degree from Harvard, continuing to pursue her acting career in the process.  After that, she pursued graduate studies at Hebrew University.  She also speaks Hebrew, French, and Japanese fluently, and yet she won’t answer my persistent phone calls in any language.

KATE BECKINSALE

Where You’ve Seen Her:  FHM, Stuff, Maxim, and movies like Click, Pearl Harbor, Underworld, Van Helsing, and Serendipity, among others.

Why She’s Hot:  She’s got a perfect body and angelic good looks, which is ironic, considering she’s been in so many vampire movies.  To top it all off, Kate’s been featured dozens of times in our favorite guy magazines, and she always looks great.  While reminding us of her extreme hotness is completely unnecessary, it’s greatly appreciated.

Look At How Smart She Is:  As a teenager, Kate was a two-time winner of the W. H. Smith Young Writers’ Competition for her short stories and poems.  She went on to attend Oxford, where she studied French and Russian Literature.  She’s also fluent in German, French, and Russian.  Yes, that’s right.  She can make Russian sound sexy.  That means that anything is possible.  Reach for the stars.

VICTORIA ZDROK

Where You’ve Seen Her:  Playboy and Penthouse Magazines.

Why She’s Hot:  She’s on a short list of beautiful women to be both the Playboy Of The Month (October, 1994) and the Penthouse Pet Of The Month (June, 2002).  That’s saying something.  Specifically, that’s saying that she’s hot, and we agree.

Look How Smart She Is:  Victoria didn’t attend high school because she was too smart for it.  Instead, she went straight on to college at West Chester University, where she graduated summa cum laude at the age of 18.  She earned a law degree from Villanova in 1997 and a Ph.D. in Psychology from Drexel University.  That’s right, she’s a doctor.  But wait, there’s more: Victoria recently completed her post-doctorate work in sex therapy.  She’s a sex-therapist-doctor-lawyer-playboy model-genius.  Suddenly I feel like I’m coming down with something.  Maybe I should schedule an appointment.

TINA FEY

 Where You’ve Seen Her: SNL, 30 Rock, Mean Girls, Baby Mama, etc.

Why She’s Hot:  Any chick that can make you laugh is worth keeping around.  If that chick also happens to be a prolific writer of movies and television shows, then that probably means she can support you while you’re trying to figure out how to become a professional fantasy football player (every girl loves an athlete).  If she’s also incredibly good looking and has a great body, then she’s a keeper.  The only down side is that people won’t believe you when you tell them that you let her win at Scrabble.

Look At How Smart She Is: She was the first female head-writer at SNL.  She also wrote and starred in the hit comedy film Mean Girls, and went on to create, write, executive produce, and star in the hit comedy series 30 Rock, for which she’s won an Emmy (Outstanding Comedy Series, 2007) and a Golden Globe (Best Actress, 2008).  Basically, she’s been the brains behind anything that we’ve found entertaining for the past few years.

CINDY CRAWFORD

Where You’ve Seen Her: If you were alive in the 90′s, you saw her on the cover of every magazine that was published for the entire decade.

Why She’s Hot:  Hers is a classic, timeless beauty.  Her measurements are perfect by traditional standards, and she was solely responsible for the rivatlization of beauty marks.  She’s so hot that she actually changed what being hot is.  That’s hot.

Look At How Smart She Is:  She was a high school valedictorian with a 4.0 GPA.  She went to Northwestern University to study Chemical Engineering.  Somewhere along the line, she and everyone she knew realized that she was remarkably hot, and she decided to pursue modeling.

ELISABETH SHUE

 

Where You’ve Seen Her: She’s been heating up the silver screen for about two decades, in movies like The Karate Kid, Back To The Future II, Adventures In Babysitting, Leaving Las Vegas, Cocktail, and The Saint, just to name a few.

Why She’s Hot:  She’s capture that girl-next-door quality that we’re all looking for deep down inside, and whether she’s being feisty, endearing, or just frantically confused, her killer figure and signature smile are guaranteed to melt hearts.  She’s also managed to prove herself equally hot as a blonde and a brunette, so she can fit into just about any imaginary fantasy you can think of.

Look At How Smart She is:  She attended Wellesley College and Harvard University, but she left college to pursue her acting career.  After solidifying herself as a leading lady, she went back to Harvard and finished 15 years later with a degree in Government.  I can’t even remember how old I was fifteen years ago, and she managed to finish her education at Harvard after the same amount of time.  That’s one brainy babe.

DANICA McKELLAR

 Where You’ve Seen Her:  You may know her as Winnie Cooper, the dreamgirl from The Wonder Years, that show that your whole family watched because both you and your parents could relate to it equally, albeit on different levels.  She’s also been on West Wing (in 2002) and How I Met Your Mother, and has been featured in Stuff Magazine.

Why She’s Hot:  Millions of teen boys witnessed her first kiss, and every one of those boys wished that they were on the receiving end of it, instead of that pesky Kevin Arnold.  From that point on, Danica solidified herself as the perfect girl-next-door/bestfriend/girlfriend for us all.  Also, she grew up to be ridiculously hot.

Look How Smart She Is:  Danica pretty much takes the cake as far as brains are concerned.  She graduated Summa Cum Laude from UCLA with a degree in Mathematics.  Yeah, that’s right, this incredibly hot chick is also a math genius.  She co-authored a theorum that deals with magnetism in two different dimensions and is way to complex for any of us to even try to understand.  She’s also written a children’s book about math entitled "Math Doesn’t Suck: How to Survive Middle-School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail".  Bottom line: any girl that can balance your checkbook and solve your annoying multi-dimensional magnetism problem deserves to be worshipped.
