Natalie Portman is Booksmart

Natalie Portman is Booksmart

Natalie Portman is not only book smart off-camera (she went to Harvard), Variety reports she’ll be taking it to a whole new level.

The 28-year-old actress will be producing a comedy called Booksmart, which will revolve around two overachieving high school seniors who realize the only thing they haven’t accomplished is having boyfriends — and each resolves to find one by prom.

“Sarah and Emily create funny, smart, unselfconsciously strong female characters,” Natalie has sad. “When I read Booksmart, it was as though the script we always talk about wanting to find for our company suddenly materialized.”

    She is just unbelievable, so talented in every way, so modest, e.g. never see her on this stupid site bc she is always productive and creative and busy. Got to love the girl, she is fn…. incredible. Oh, forgot, hot.

    Not that interesting but OH I love Natalie. I’m not a lesbian but she’s one of the most beautiful women on this planet, seriously. And besides, she’s intelligent! The whole package. Intelligence and amazing beauty is what we should all be lookin’ for. Pretty rare to find both though lol.

    Movie sounds great. Natalie Portman is a real class act, amazing actress and stays out of the Hollywood drama!

    She is simply angelic, so philanthropic, so involved in all the important issues as poverty, politics etc. How does she find the time to act, direct, produce, and all the other things she does. What a lady. I simply love her, she is so gorgeous and sexy and no I am not a lesbian.

    Magnificent human being. Perfection. Notice how she knows everyone in HW and never made one negative comment about any one or told something intimate about them. That is a real class act.

    She is always working and seems her Production company is going in positive directions for her. The concept is cute as like the vampire movies many do them it’s a matter of what kind people enjoy the most.

    I just love this one. Way to go Nat. JJ FAILED to mention that she has 2 movies in production already in which she stars and 2 more in progress, namely, Love & Other Impossible Pursuits, and Hesher as well as one with Brad Pitt and the one they mentioned, respectively. Hah!

    I like so much of Natalie, but I think she is working hard, maybe she is missing a boyfriend? maybe when she feels alone she discounts all in the work, I think she needs to relax.

    Man! I have seen so many stupid students in this country that its hard to imagine anyone bright at all among American students. And I have seen quite a few, including Columbia, MIT, NYU, UC system….

    Students here lack serious brain workout. Going to Harvard does not make her smart.
    I am off the thread, will not be back to read further comments/attacks ;-)

    YES! Says:

    Natalie is one class act, and true Hollywood star, but why deal with high school again?
    It’s time to move beyond high school and look at real life.
