Watch Natalie Portman Speak to Harvard Graduates (Video)

Natalie Portman takes the podium to speak at Harvard’s College Class Day in Tercentenary Theater on Wednesday (May 27) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The 33-year-old actress and 2003 graduate served as the keynote speaker ahead of the official commencement ceremony.

“When I got to Harvard just after the release of Star Wars: Episode 1, I feared people would assume I had gotten in just for being famous, and not worthy of the intellectual rigor here,” Natalie said. “It’s easy to romanticize my time here, but I had some difficult times here.”

    I graduated college. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Now, I feel like an alien… because of the after effect… I didn’t think post grad would be this difficult!!!! But college is vital and all children should have the opportunity. Future Grads… Congrats!!!!! Good Luck!!!! “I think, therefore I am.”

    I would rather have her speak at a university then dumbos and uneducated idiots like Kanye West. Atleast Portman is a university grad and earned her degree. Something Kanye hasn’t done but probably bought that fake PhD he got recently.

    Yes, she an awesome woman and I am just sure that many young people were just happy to listen to her. What I love most of all about her that she doesn’t pretend. Graduate students really need quite mush time to get used to a new life as it is totally different. The last year was hard, preparation for exams, thesis and most students’ rooms turned into Dissertation Writing Laboratory and it seemed that it was the most difficult period in their life. I have made a conclusion that it is just necessary to enjoy what you do.
