Actors are known for just that, acting. However, a surprising amount of actors don’t hold acting degrees. In fact, their education may have nothing to do with their profession.
The Black Swan actress holds many movies on her belt, yet in her eyes, they mean nothing without her degree.
She graduated from Harvard University with a B.A in Psychology. Portman has always been vocal about having a college degree in the entertainment business.
She´s stated that education is important to her and she’d rather be smart than famous – ironically, she’s both.
Comedian and well know actor, Ferrell graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Sports Information in 1990.
Ferrell has been known to joke about his degree, due to them removing the major 8 years after his graduation. He also compared his degree to a Navy Seal because they were few of them and the drop out rate was high.
Ferrell has never put his degree to use but believes when the time is right it’ll come in handy.
