Natalie Portman told Sorkin stories for ‘Social Network’

HollywoodNews.com: Natalie Portman’s fingerprints are on “The Social Network.”

Turns out Aaron Sorkin, when he was writing the script about the roots of Facebook, consulted Portman as her time at Harvard coincided with the site’s founder Mark Zuckerberg. In the film, there’s even a passing reference to a “celebrity” as a member of the then Harvard-based Facebook website.

Portman was studying psychology at Harvard between 1999 and 2003.

While speaking recently about “The Social Network” at Harvard, Sorkin exclaimed, “Natalie Portman got in touch with me when she heard that I was doing this to say, ‘Listen… come over for dinner and I’ll tell you some stories’

“I would’ve come over for dinner under any circumstances. But that was really helpful.”

Natalie Portman is on fire this award season for her portrayal of a disillusioned ballet dancer in “Black Swan.” The film bows on December 4.

“The Social Network” opens today.
