Celebrity mathematicians

I knew that the head of Qantas, Alan Joyce, studied mathematics at university, as did (uggh) right wing columnist Miranda Devine. I didn't know that it might be the only thing she shares in common with South Park co-creator Matt Stone, who has a joint major in film and mathematics from the University of Colorado.

Other (more) famous people with mathematics degrees include past and present presidents of Singapore, Peru and the Philippines, along with Teri Hatcher and Art Garfunkel.
