My older brother was absolutely in love with Kate Beckinsale, and even at 48 I can appreciate that she would still be the hottest woman in most rooms.
Turns out she might also be the smartest, too.
Becks went onto Howard Stern to talk about her career and how her intelligence may have held her back.
“Every single doctor, every single person I’ve ever come across has said, ‘You’d be so much happier if you were 30 percent less smart,'” Beckinsale told Stern. “It’s no good to me, though. It’s really not helpful to me in my career. I just think it might have been a handicap actually.”
Beckinsale — who I just learned studied French and Russian literature at Oxford (and is fvcking fluent in Russian) — told Howard Stern that her mother had her IQ tested as a child. Stern, being the serious journalist that he is, got her mom on the phone to confirm that she has an IQ of 152.
152! Jesus. That is literally eight points short of genius level.
So… if she is so smart, how did she end up dating FVCKING PETE DAVIDSON!
“I’ve always found I can forgive an awful lot if somebody’s funny,” she tried to explain him away. “So, there’s a certain degree of intelligence in somebody funny that I’m able to mess with.”
For fvck sake… Davidson always looks like he just woke up in a pile of his own puke next to a heap of empty bottles, a spilt bong, and feeling a little uneasy about how many trips he made to the bathroom for a little taste. (I hate that shitbag.)
Anyways, this is not going to turn into a post about me hating Pete Davidson and wishing he would fall off the face of the fvcking Earth. This is an appreciation of Kate Beckinsale being hot as fvck and apparently an undercover genius.
