Actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Pattie Mallette, who is the mother of Canadian singer Justin Bieber, top the list.
On her Twitter account, Anne said that she was surprised, but happy over the news.
According to Time, the list was based on a reading comprehension test known as Simple Measure of Gobbledygook (SMOG).
The report said that SMOG “measures the number of three syllable words used in a text to calculate the years of education required to understand it.”
It also wrote that in the analysis of the tweets, all of the celebrities listed on the list exceeded the “fourth-grade reading level.” To find the smartest celebrities, Time analyzed the last 20 tweets of the celebrities on the list and, ran through the SMOG test to determine their reading level.
“SMOG is intended for processing English, so users tweeting in multiple languages were removed. Computer processing of natural language has its limitations. For example, the SMOG test can falsely read slang as multi-syllable words,” said the article.
Aside from in the movies and on billboards across town, Anne can be seen in ABS-CBN’s noontime show It's Showtime and the primetime fantasy drama Dyesebel, which ends on Friday, July 18. - Rappler.com
