Natalie Portman calls Harvard pal Kushner 'a supervillain'

Natalie Portman Shades Former Harvard Friend Jared Kushner for 'Becoming a Supervillain'

Natalie Portman: Former friend Jared Kushner is a 'super villain'

Actress Natalie Portman reflected on former Harvard classmate Jared Kushner during an interview on Thursday - and she didn't have too many nice things to say about the White House staffer she once considered a friend.

Asked by Colbert to elaborate on her relationship with her fellow 37-year-old, Portman hesitated.

She continued, "There's not a lot amusing to say about someone you were friends with becoming a super villain..."

"What can I say?" she said with a laugh".

"Anything you want", Colbert interjected.

Trump, White House appear at odds over GOP immigration bill
Conservatives are leery of legislation protecting from deportation immigrants who arrived illegally, calling it amnesty. On Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had a tense exchange with a reporter over the issue.

Last weekend, Hamill retweeted a Happy Birthday tweet to Portman by adding in "Fun Fact: I've never met this woman", which is hilarious since Portman's Queen Amidala is Luke Skywalker's mom. "Right?" Portman shot back.

"There's not a lot amusing to say about someone you were friends with becoming a supervillain", she said. "So, you know...it's not amusing".

When Colbert pressed Portman on the rumors that Kushner wasn't a great student, she confirmed, "That is... true".

Portman noted that Kushner has compared friends he's lost because of politics to "exfoliating". "I like the spa metaphors". Colbert asked, smiling broadly and reminding Portman that she was free to say whatever she liked. Portman campaigned for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

A representative of Kushner did not immediately respond to ITK's request for comment.
