Natalie Portman Helped Writer Aaron Sorkin Depict Life At Harvard for ‘The Social Network’

The Social Network screenwriter Aaron Sorkin had insider access to everything that goes on behind closed doors at Harvard University thanks to school graduate Natalie Portman.

The Star Wars beauty studied psychology at the prestigious institution from 1999 to 2003 and even dated a member of the famously exclusive Porcellian Club, a secretive male-only club.

And she couldn't wait to share all about her time at university with Sorkin after learning he was working on the screenplay for The Social Network, which chronicles the early days of Facebook.com when computer science students Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin co-founded the website in their Harvard dorm rooms.

Sorkin tells Entertainment Weekly, "Natalie Portman got in touch with me when she heard 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."
