Natalie Portman, the Academy Award winning actress, is also an ardent animal right activist and an Ambassador of Hope for FINCA International, an organization that promotes micro-lending among women. As a child, she loved school to such an extent that her friends used to call her “dork”. Now she hates studying, but loves learning. In a talk to the Harvard graduates in May 2015, she urged them to accept their lack of knowledge and turn them into an asset. Let us now look at some of her quotes in which she not only talks about her works, but also about her learning experiences, her dreams and interests, her childhood, her ideas about marriage and friendship and many other topics.
