It’s officially graduation season! So as the fabulous graduate in your life is walking across the podium to get their diploma, we’re sharing a few of our favorite celebrities who have beauty and brains!
Harry Potter star Emma Watson isn’t just a star on the big screen, she’s a star in the classroom as well. The 24-year-old graduated from Brown University with a degree in English over Memorial Day Weekend. While it was not only a proud moment for the actress, it was a goal she has been determined to accomplish for years now.
“So many people told me it wasn’t possible,” the actress told Elle magazine in the April 2014 issue. “I kept saying, ‘I don’t care.’ This is what I want. And graduating will, for me, be really symbolic of all of that."
Emma isn’t the only recent celebrity graduate. Dancing With the Stars contestant Cody Simpson graduated as the Valedictorian of his Atlanta, GA high school class this May.
“It’s what’s in here that’s going to get you furthest,” he said in his speech that he later shared on Instagram. “Regardless of any kind of wealth, or looks, or material possessions, or anything, it's always in here that's going to get you the furthest. Intelligence is the sexiest thing in the entire world.”
So ladies, if you want to get Cody’s attention, you better study up!
Mayim Bialik is another super-smart star. Not only does she play a Neuroscientist on The Big Bang Theory, she’s actually one in real life! The mother-of-two received her Ph.D. from UCLA in 2007.
