Natalie Portman is an extremely intelligent actress. She learned to speak Hebrew while going to the Solomon Schechter Day School of Nassau County in New York. She also studied at the American Theater Dance Workshop and the Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts while in high school.
After high school she went to Harvard where she received her Artium Baccalaureus degree in psychology. She was a research assistant there as well. While attending Harvard she was quoted by the New York Post saying “I’d rather be smart than a movie star.” She has also been published twice as a co-author in two scientific journals.
