Natalie Portman appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and beat her former classmate at Harvard, Jared Kushner.
Colbert asked Portman, “You actually graduated in the same class as Jared Kushner, have you not?”
Portman laughed and replied: “That is correct.”
Prying further, the talk show host asked the “Star Wars” actress if they are all memories of Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband and President of Trump’s senior advisor.
They said that they had to be “good”, but then alluded to the fact that the former classmates were no longer in contact.
The actress admitted on the late-night show during his study at Harvard, she and Kushner were friends, but are now no longer in contact.
“Unfortunately, it’s not very — there’s not much funny to say about someone you were friends with a supervillain,” Portman stated. “So, it’s not funny.”
She added, “He said in an interview that of all the friends he lost, the politics is as the scrub. I was like, OK.”
Colbert asked: “So you’re a dead skin cells?” Colbert answered, in which Portman said, “with Pride.”
With the birthday boy on his 37th birthday! Here is to many more great days, years and decades with my love! ❤️
While the actress may have some unkind thoughts about Kushner now, according to the Daily Mail, Portman and Trump’s son-in-law are friends to the point of attending each other’s weddings.
Portman was reportedly on the guest list for Kushner’s 2009 New Jersey wedding of Ivanka, and three years later, Kushner and his wife lived in Portman’s Big Sur wedding with the actor Benjamin Millepied.
Although it is not clear if Portman and Kushner stopped talking, the 37-year-old actress was one of the many celebrity supporters of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
Kushner, who works along side of his father-in-law, President Donald Trump, is married to Ivanka for nine years. Portman reportedly at his wedding.
Kushner publicly addressed, the friendships lost his political views and efforts in a 2016 interview with Forbes and said, “Someone who was willing to change a friendship or not do business, because of someone who supports in politics is not someone who has a lot of character.”
Kushner added: “the People are very fickle. You have to find what you believe, challenge your truths. And if you believe in something, even if it is not popular, you have to push.”
