GMB Divides Viewers As Journalist Claims She Seems Stupid To Fit In

Good Morning Britain panelists split viewers’ views today after discussing whether women should “cover themselves up” to fit in after Kate Beckinsale said her extremely high IQ “held her back” in her career.

The actress, 48, caused a stir last week after appearing on a US radio show, where she said her 152 IQ – which Mensa considers a “genius” score – was a “disability” and “holding her back.”

To the shocking Howard Stern, the Oxford graduate said, “It’s not good for me, though. It’s really not helpful in my career. I just think it might be a handicap, actually.’

Journalist Sally Jones, who appeared on the ITV show this morning, said that ‘everyone is kidding themselves’ and that she has lowered her IQ in the past to fit in and get ahead.

Carole Malone disagreed, however, saying there’s “no point” in women’s “equality and empowerment” if they can’t show they’re smart.

Good Morning Britain panelist divided viewers’ views today after discussing whether women should “cover themselves up” to fit in after Kate Beckinsale said her extremely high intelligence “held her back” in her career. Journalist Sally Jones, who appeared on the ITV show this morning, said that ‘everyone is kidding themselves’ and that she has lowered her IQ in the past to fit in.

“I think we all do that sometimes,” Sally told host Adil Ray and Charlotte Hawkins.

‘I was a mediocre academic child and I was in quite rough school. And on my first day at a big school, someone pushed me into the biology room. And I think that was because I kind of raised my hand in class.

“I stopped raising my hand and took on a bit more of a brummie accent like everyone else around me. And it certainly paid off, because suddenly you have some friends who sounded like everyone and no one like a smart a***.

“Nobody likes to feel like you’re going “I’m smarter than you.” Just covering up that you have a few brains every now and then doesn’t stop you from having that brain, it actually makes you a lot more effective I think.

“When I was working as a news reporter for television, I would often go to the crime scene and pretend to be normal and watch and say, ‘What’s going on with the cop?’

“And if they thought you were just an ordinary passer-by, of course they often tell you everything. You get a lot more knowledge, a lot more background detail, probably a much better long term story just by being

Carole Malone disagreed, however, saying there’s “no point” in women’s “equality and empowerment” if they can’t show they’re smart.

“I’ve had bits of brummie accent in the past, you know, it comes and goes, but it’s one of those accents where, I’m sorry to say, a lot of people hear you a real fat brummie and assume you’re fat like minced meat. And of course you don’t look at all the smart brummies out there, but it’s just one of those things.

‘I admire Carole, and look at me dear, I think it’s a Liverpool accent. I think that must’ve helped people just assume she’s with the kids, one of them, you know, because she’s got a bit of an accent. And I think all these things happen. I mean, you even heard Tony Blair drop his T’s when he spoke to working-class voters.

Many Twitter users disagreed with Sally, saying she confused intelligence and accent, while others said they felt they had to hide their brains to fit in.

Carole also disagreed with Sally, explaining that she doesn’t want cruel trolls to give her ammunition by acting stupid.

“In my work, people tell me I’m stupid every day, so I don’t want to play the stereotype. I grew up in a great working-class neighborhood where you were supposed to never do anything. And I was always determined that I would never be,” she explained.

‘I don’t know something. I’ll say I don’t know. But I can’t believe Kate Beckinsale is saying this. This woman went to Oxford. She speaks fluent Russian. She’s hot and she’s smart and I don’t think it stopped her for a moment.

“Did it stop Vanessa Redgrave? Did it stop Judi Dench? Susan Sarandon? Fantastic actresses and activist.

“Kat may have held her back by not being a big enough actress.”

Presenter Charlotte Hawkins defended the star, saying: “I think she probably had to change her behavior, which she suggests, and we haven’t heard from the others if they felt they should.”

Carole took offense with this addition: ‘It’s the 21st century! What is equality of emancipation, that is, we cannot show that we are smart?

“Choosing to be stupid is choosing to be liked instead of being right and intelligent.

“And I definitely think that’s the bad move for any woman.

“I’ve also been in my career for 40 years and I’ve never played dumb to do it.

‘Do I want people to trust me? Yes. Do I want them to like me? Yes, but I never had to be or appear stupid.

It’s really not helpful in my career. I just think it might be a handicap, actually.’

“Nobody can tell me I’m stupid because on many occasions I really think I am that they’re not, they don’t insult me ​​by saying that.

“Women have a right to be as smart as they can be, it’s not arrogant. Let’s go back to the days when Marilyn Monroe was in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She said, “Men don’t like smart women. They don’t want to marry smart women!.

‘Times have changed! I don’t want to be around a man who thinks he can’t stand intelligence.

Striking back Sally added: ‘I think just because you don’t bring your full arsenal of intelligence out to everyone doesn’t mean the brain isn’t there. I think most decent men would like to marry a very smart woman.

“And I think it’s about just being able to operate at the same level as everyone you’re with, not slamming your brains down your throat like that. In our family, showing off is worse than genocide.

‘And it’s quintessentially British. It’s kind of self-effacing. If you get an American and someone asks them “Oh, did you do it”, they immediately pick up every little feat they’ve done.

“And you get a Brit and it’s much more charming because they say, ‘Well, I’ve just been kind of lucky to get this kind of Nobel Prize, this double first from Cambridge,’ or whatever it was, and I think it a much more charming aspect.

“I’ll brag to the best person that if I go to a job interview, say, but me and I will try to bring out the big guns, whatever we’ve selected to play in the intelligence department in my life, but I think It does help to be able to act normally.

“I think the kind of protective suit of school or going crazy about being crazy about sports, no one would suspect that you’d actually have a lot of friends and be smart.
