Two of the biggest movies of the year may have a common denominator. Black Swan star Natalie Portman was reportedly in contact with The Social Network screenwriter Aaron Sorkin about Harvard. Being one of the school’s most famous alums, Portman attended Harvard between 1999 and 2003. Though she says she did not know Zuckerberg, she does say that she dated a member of the Porcellian Club — one of the most prestigious final clubs around.
Rumor has it that Portman invited Sorkin over for dinner to let him in on the super exclusive and super secret final clubs and the general feel of Harvard life around the time Facebook was born.
Portman also gets a tongue-in-cheek reference in The Social Network. One character says that Mark Zuckerberg became the hottest thing on a campus that included Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, future Olympians, and a movie star.
