A 4.0 high school student, Natalie Portman reportedly skipped the premiere of Star Wars: Episode I
to study for final exams and told an interviewer, "Id rather be smart than a movie star." And now shes both (and a new mom, too)! Portman graduated with a bachelor's degree in psychology from Harvard University in 2003 and is fluent in five languages. She's twice been published in scientific journals and in 2006 appeared at Columbia to guest lecture on terrorism and counterterrorism.
