She went to Harvard

Ever the diligent student, Natalie always prioritised school over work, even managing to tackle both at the same time quite often. In 1999, she refused to go to the premiere of ‘Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace’, in which she starred as Padmé Amidala Naberrie because she was too busy studying for her final exam. Her studious nature didn’t stop there, and she later insisted on taking time to pursue a degree at the prestigious Harvard University. She said “I don't care if [college] ruins my career. I'd rather be smart than a movie star.”
