Natalie Portman says her Harvard classmate Jared Kushner has become a “super-villain.”
The Academy Award-winning actress said on CBS’ Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday that there’s not much funny to say about “someone you were friends with becoming a super-villain.”
Portman and Kushner, who is a White House senior adviser, both graduated from Harvard in 2003. Portman noted that Kushner has compared friends he’s lost because of politics to “exfoliating.”
Host Stephen Colbert asked, “So you’re a dead skin cell?”
Portman answered, “Proudly.”
Colbert said Kushner was rumoured to be not “that great of a student.”
Portman, known for her roles in Black Swan and Jackie, said, “That is true, yes.”
Kushner is the son-in-law to President Donald Trump. Portman campaigned for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.
A spokesperson for Kushner didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
