The pressures of Hollywood can be very demanding. All too often, young actors forego attending institutions of higher learning for more direct experience in their field . But some celebrities feel that attending college can be quite rewarding experience. Here are some brainy celebrities that have attended Ivy League Universities.
1. Natalie Portman
This actress made her debut in the 1994 film, in “Leon: The Professional.” Despite getting early success in acting, Portman was determined to get a college education. Studying psychology at Harvard University, she was regarded as a thoughtful student and graduated in 2003. The Oscar award winning actress felt pressured to pursue film roles while studying, but reportedly told USA Today : “I’m going to college. I don’t care if it ruins my career. I’d rather be smart than a movie star.”
