The rise of the geeks! In the recent years with the civilization being more and more tech-oriented and geeks or nerds have become a commodity.

We all have that friend who helps us with our computers, phones and other technical devices.

These 12 geeks are celebrities. I mean… these 12 celebrities are geeks.

1. Mayim Bialik

This fabulous actress is well qualified to play the geeky Amy Farrah Fowler in the popular The Big Bang Theory (among other things of course). She’s not only an accomplished actress but also a real life geek who got no less than a Ph.D. at UCLA in neuroscience, and you don’t get much geekier than that.

Bialik’s interest in science stems from her school science classes, where her science teacher taught the students about cells as thought they were Picasso paintings. She thought – wow, science can be taught and studied in a very passionate manner, like art or literature can – which made her fall in love with it.

Her original plan was to become a research professor, but she was drawn to teaching, and focused on promoting science among children. Today she continues to develop curricula and teach young children about science.

After enrolling in UCLA, she fell in love with neurons during the first semester, especially with electro-physiology. When asked about her life as both a scientist and an actor, she replied, “being a scientist is like being in love with every aspect of the universe.”

She first became famous in Blossom (1990) and was nominated consecutively in 1992 and 1993 for Outstanding Young Comedienne in a Television Series. Also, in 2012 and 2013, she was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in The Big Bang Theory (2007) for playing Amy Fowler.

The uber-smart Bialik finished her Ph.D. in neuroscience in 2007, specializing in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in adolescents with Prader-Willi syndrome. She’s also written a book on parenting that talks about how hormones can affect parent-child bonding. The book was published in 2012. This highly dedicated and caring mother of two, with superior knowledge, contribution to science, a successful acting carrier, and the lack of scandalous affairs, is a candidate for becoming a top Hollywood role model.

    Degree in biology may as well be a degree in art. Which may as well be awarded to all people who reach the age of 9

      You sound so ignorant. I have a degree in art, photography specifically and it taught me so much in the technical and business realm it would make your head spin. I also make a huge salary. So nice put down on the degrees, you keep thinking that.

        Lorin, you’re a braggart. My niece has a degree in art, photography-specific, she also knows the technical portions, and this ‘degree’ is bogus. she paid lots of money to ‘learn’ photography from a money-grubbing “institute”, so she could run around saying she had a degree. but it makes her feel intelligent, even though she’s still dumb as a box of rocks. would you mind giving us the name of your school? are they accredited? lots of other questions come to mind… p.s. your friendships with logo-designing folks are not impressive either.

          LMAO, you just sound bitter and angry. “run around and say she had a degree”, yeah I’m sure that is why she went to school. Also, sounds like you don’t like your niece. – “dumb as a box of rocks”- nice.

          You are so clueless and have zero comprehension of my reply to “nana.” The point that you failed to see is that an art degree is worthwhile. I am a example of this. Since expanding your mind and furthering your knowledge base does not seem of importance to you or most of the rest of the posters here, I said that I make a great salary- that I attribute to my education.

          I don’t care if you are impressed or not by my friends who have insanely great careers in logo design- again it is your failure and refusal to see the point- which again is how their education put them on this path.
          At any given time, I am sure there is one of their logos in your fridge, in your kitchen…. Also, think of me when you go to the drugstore and see the photographs of the models selling lipstick- or when you flip thru a magazine and see a shot of perfume. or when you look at a photo on a billboard.

          Lmao- “lots of other questions come to mind.”

      You are an IDIOT who must never have had to actually paint a painting, learn to do a pirouette or write a sonnet. Art is INCREDIBLY difficult and time-consuming. When you look at a painting and say “$5000? For one painting?!” you forget that it took years to learn how to paint, and that you may be looking at the one painting of the 25 painted that was “successful.” Art requires allowing yourself to walk off a cliff into the dark unknown of your own experience and mind and psyche. It takes GREAT courage. That is why one of the most important measures of a civilization has always been the greatness of the art it produces. A moron like you seems to think that in 500 years, people will be blown away by Farmville. It makes me want to weep to find that there are people as ignorant and clueless as you.
