I don’t love studying. I hate studying. I like learning. Learning is beautiful.” Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman TRANSCRIPT:

“Hello, class of 2015. I am so honored to be here today. Dean Khurana, faculty, parents, and most especially graduating students. Thank you so much for inviting me. The Senior Class Committee. It’s genuinely one of the most exciting things I’ve ever been asked to do.

I have to admit primarily because I can’t deny it as it was leaked in the WikiLeaks release of the Sony hack that when I was invited, I replied, and I directly quote my own email, “wow! This is so nice! I’m gonna need some funny ghost writers. Any ideas?” This initial response, now blessedly public was from the knowledge that at my class day we were lucky enough to have Will Ferrel as class day speaker and many of us were hungover, or even freshly high, mainly wanted to laugh. So I have to admit that today even 12 years after graduation. I’m still insecure about my own worthiness.
I have to remind myself today you’re here for a reason. Today I feel much like I did when I came to Harvard Yard as a freshman in 1999.When you guys were, to my continued shock and horror, still in kindergarten. I felt like there had been some mistake that I wasn’t smart enough to be in this company and that every time I opened my mouth, I would have to prove that I wasn’t just a dumb actress. So I start with an apology. This won’t be very funny. I’m not a comedian. And I didn’t get a ghost writer. But I am here to tell you today. Harvard is giving you all diplomas tomorrow. You are here for a reason.
