Coming in at No. 12: Elisabeth Shue

Smart stats:

• She attended both Wellesley College and Harvard University, earning a scholarship to study political science at Harvard.

• Although she dropped out to pursue her acting career, she returned to Harvard 15 years later and completed her degree in government.

Lucky for her, Elisabeth Shue was smart enough to break out of her wholesome, girl-next-door persona by playing a prostitute in “Leaving Las Vegas.”
