Starpulse has done a feature, since its back to school month, on celebs who are brighter than normal. Jodie Foster is on there. So is Ed Norton. We learn that James Woods has an IQ of 180 (seriously? holy hell!). And since I’m talking about this, it doesn’t take a genius to realize that Natalie also gets a mention.
With her pixie-esque radiance it’s easy to understand why guys swoon and drool over this Israeli-born actress, especially the geeks. Thanks to her roles as Queen Amidala in “Star Wars” and Evey Hamond in “V for Vendetta,” Miss Portman has soundly established herself as the reigning leading lady in fanboy monkey spanking fantasies – Princess Leia’s gold bikini might as well be a nasty, old pair of sweat pants. And this isn’t just because Natalie is super gorge either. Nope. The geeks love her because of her super smarts too. After graduating high school with a 4.0, Natalie attended Harvard University where she received a Bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2003. She then went on to study at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem at the graduate level and has been published twice in professional scientific journals. Additionally, Natalie speaks Hebrew fluently and dabbles in French, German, Japanese, and Arabic.
