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 actually applied to college and went – like Brooke Shields. She didn’t earn one of those “celeb” degrees from the school.

    It IS great to see this talented and beautiful working actress on JJ. Nice change of pace from the other media whores who are usually on!

    Neil you sound bitter, just saying. And the fact that you say you wont be back means you will be. Why else would you leave that little side note?

    Cry yourself to sleep knowing that people like me are enjoying our lives at ivy leagues.

    Also, Natalie going to Harvard is not indicative of her being smart, it’s most likely her fame that got her in.

    She was not that famous when she went to Harvard, you idiot and they published her scientific research on the internet for jealous losers like you. Natalie is bright and talented and gorgeous. Eat your heart out.

    Getting into Harvard is hard. You need to be remarkable in order to get admitted.

    What a terrible message to send; you can be intelligent and successful but it doesn’t matter unless you have a boyfriend? WEAK and redundant….she must be in it for the money

    Jude Law got a woman pregnant and no one even knew they dated. Natalie may have had several boyfriends by now and we don’t know. She is very private and is out of the country most of the time. Who knows?

    Natalie knows where paps are and hates them so she is definitely avoiding these places that is why no pictures.

    Many celebrities including Natalie have relationships and we don’t hear about it bc they do not wish to publicize them. Just look at Emmy Rossum, she got married and no one knew.

    Natalie and Jake G were rumored to be together. I know they were friends and are in the Brother’s movie together (coming out in Dec) it’s a shame they aren’t together rather than reeke

    Maybe Natalie is too smart to date someone who is a poor excuse for a man

    @35 Says:

    Ofcourse she is too smart to date someone who is a poor excuse for a man. She is so beautiful and talented that it is hard to find someone worthy but I have a feeling she will be all right.

    Somehow I am not worried about Natalie at all.

    Natalie does not need some one who is in tabloids, she is not that superficial, guys like that are for air heads.

    Meh, it makes sense that she can stay so busy because I doubt she’s actually doing all that much as a “producer,” FYI almost every actor nowadays has their own production company and gets producer credit on things, but seriously I doubt they do much other than rubber stamp a few things and give quotes to the press, other than that they have a whole staff of REAL producers/workers in the industry who do all the real work…

    Natalie is not that kind of person. I am sure she is involved in all the stages of the process.

    davis Says:

    right…I’m sure her celebrity status didn’t help her get admitted to harvard or notoriety to work on the projects she did. say what you will, but it’s just like hollywood. knowing the right people helps you get access into inner circles. hollywood is definitely not about talent alone and neither is the academic world.
    get a grip people.

    @41 Says:

    You are spewing nonsense, academic world is far removed from HW world, and Natalie Portman was an exceptional student all her life, so her acting was not the reason she was accepted but rather her academic accomplishments. According to your theory Rachel Bilson should have gone to Harvard, instead she went to Community College, which she could not finish, so where is the logic?

    she was so happy with Devendra, in more recent photos of her she looks so serious, I think she needs a new boyfriend.

    Finally, Jared….now this is worthy news! Natalie is the real deal….a rare gem in HW with so many useless media wh***.

    Natalie is proof that a woman doesn’t need a boyfried to be successful and happy. She accomplished everything on her own. Way to go, Nat! But if she needs a bf, I’m available! ;)
