Natalie attended a Terrorism and Counterterrorism class at Columbia University yesterday. She took questions for 20 minutes. Imagine you skipped class that day? Sheesh.
And someone who was there, Ajit, sent in his report.
I’m a graduate student in political science in Columbia University in New York, and a huge fan of Natalie.
Near the end of my Terrorism & Counterterrorism class this afternoon,
the professor stopped what was going on, opened the door and let some
camera crew into the room. He said he had a surprise for us. Some of
us had gone for an free advanced screening of “V for Vendetta” in the
Warner Bros building in midtown over the weekend (another great movie
with Natalie), and he said in line with that, he had a special guest
to answer some of our questions. In walks the goddess herself –
Natalie Portman, into my classroom! She was wearing blue jeans and a
purple top, and I’ve heard she’s small, but in person she really
seemed tiny. But she was fragile and exquisite, completely radiant.
Apparently, there was some special hook up with MTV U, who were
filming for a show (I didn’t get to find out when it will be
screened). I guess she was just promoting the movie. Natalie answered
questions for about 15 minutes, not just about the movie, but about
terrorism in general, and gracing us with her wit and intelligence as
she quoted Winston Churchill and made references to some rulings in
Israeli courts. Needless to say, the girl is beauty, brains and more.
At the end, as she was leaving, I shook her hand and told her that I
enjoyed the movie, and she indulged me in some conversation for less
than 10 seconds before she bounced out to another room. This was a
great day for a fan like myself.
Joe captured and sent in a new V ad. As always, keep away if you want to remain as unspoiled as possible.
And finally, here’s a proper new poll. And in case you were wondering…
327 of you would. 288 of you would not.
