    Smarty-Pants! Which Celeb Offspring Just Became a Rhodes Scholar?

    Guess Who Riccardo S. Savi/WireImage

    Not too shabby looking, right? But what's even better is this young lad is a frickin' genius! Seriously.

    It was announced over the weekend that our mystery celebuspawn will be representing the United States as one of 32 Rhodes Scholars. The scholarship picks up the tab for two to three years of study at the University of Oxford in England, where Mr. Blue Eyes is reportedly planning to do a Doctor of Philosophy in International Development.

    The 23-year-old graduated from Yale Law School and works as a State Department special adviser on global youth issues. Even more astonishing? This guy—who double-majored in philosophy and biology—also graduated from Bard College in 2004 when he was only 15!

    Yes, 15! So who is he?!

    You're looking at Ronan Farrow, the biological son of actress Mia Farrow and film director Woody Allen.

    Before the 2009 Yale Law School graduate took his role as Special Advisor to the Secretary of State for Global Youth Issues, he was Special Advisor for Humanitarian and NGO Affairs. Farrow has also followed in his mother's humanitarian footsteps by serving as a UNICEF spokesperson from 2001 through 2009.

    We're glad to know that even though he was caught in the middle of a highly publicized custody battle, which included the revelation that his father was dating his adopted sister, Farrow decided to focus on the books.

    Well done, Ronan.
