Kate Beckinsale Says She Has A Really High IQ And It’s Been A “Handicap” In Her Career

October 21, 2021 / Posted by:

Kate Beckinsale is just too fucking smart! During an interview on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show, Kate said that her high IQ has been a hindrance to her in many ways and may have proved to be a “handicap” for her in her career. I mean, of course! A beautiful and smart woman? Who would want to hire that? An ugly smart person, fine. A hot dumbass, yes! But who wants to feel shitty about themselves standing next to Einstein Barbie?

Kate said that when she was a child, her mom, Judy Loe, had her IQ tested because “I think she had me tested because very bright children are near unbearable.” While on air with Howard, Kate called her mom to confirm. Judy said that Kate had an IQ score was 152. According to Healthline, a score of 100 is considered to be average, while a score of 130 or higher is considered a high IQ. So Kate is smarter thanĀ Elon Musk: Confirmed. But it’s not all genius quips and running people ragged on an episode of Jeopardy!, being a genius has its downfalls, as Kate explained to Howard after he said he wished he had an IQ of 152. via People.

“You don’t… 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.” …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.”

And being a genius makes it harder to date too:

When Stern asked if having a high IQ affected her dating life, the actress confessed, “I’ve always found I can forgive an awful lot if somebody’s funny. So, there’s a certain degree of intelligence in somebody funny that I’m able to mess with.”

Kate has recently dated youngins, like Pete Davidson and Good Grace, so I’ve just learned that geniuses love nothing more than fart and “pull my finger” jokes.

Here’s Kate on HSS:

Kate is really smart, huh? I guess she’s the one who should be changing her name, not Kanye West. Remember when he wanted to be Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West? She can be Gorgeous Genius Millionaire Kate Beckinsale.

And because of this story, Three 6 Mafia needs to update their Oscar-winning song It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp to It’s Hard Out Here For A Beautiful Rich Smarty.
