    The following New York Times article sheds light on Portman and other actors’ science backgrounds.

    Yes, just imagine where she would be in chemistry at age 29….

    On the other hand I am still not sure what’s a greater loss for humanity- losing an Academy Award winning actress or losing a potentially world-class chemist. Actually I am kidding, I am quite sure.

    There is only one word to describe Natalie Portman: awesome.

    @Wavefunction thanks for the NYTimes link. Hedy Lamarr is one of my favorite classic-era stars.

    Let’s not forget the tale of one Christopher Kutcher, a biochemical engineering major at the University of Iowa. If Wikipedia is to be believed, he was not as good a student as Natalie.
