Natalie Portman is what you may call a triple threat when it comes to filmmaking. She’s an incredible actress, director, and producer. However, if the situation ever calls for it, she can be the production’s on-call psychologist as well. She graduated from Harvard with a psychology degree in 2003. She’s even published quite a few articles on peer-reviewed scientific journals.
The set of the hit comedy series The Office definitely attracted Ivy Leaguers. It’s no surprise then that B.J. Novak came from an Ivy League school as well. The Office alum graduated from no less than Harvard with a major in English and Spanish. He was even a member of the infamous Harvard Lampoon.
The late-night show host Conan O’Brien must have sharpened his wit at The Harvard Lampoon. He was so good at satire and comedy that he was even elected to twice as president of the school magazine. It was an incredibly rare feat that not even presidents and intellectuals that came before him ever accomplished. Couple that wit and humour with a degree in American history and you’ve got a voice that’s particularly strong in social commentary.
