Natalie Portman's biting comments about former friend Jared Kushner

Natalie Portman visited The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and when Colbert brought up the topic of her old friend Jared Kushner, Portman had a hard time coming up with something funny to say.

Kushner and Portman attended Harvard together. He wasn’t the best student, Portman claims, but they were friends. In fact, they were good enough friends that Portman attended Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s wedding.

As Colbert pushed Portman to discuss her friendship with Kushner, the Oscar winner said, “There’s not a lot funny to say about someone you were friends with becoming a supervillain.”

Since Donald Trump became president, Kushner has apparently disconnected from many of his friends. “He said in some interview that the friends he’s lost because of politics it’s, like, exfoliating,” Portman said, adding, “I like the spa metaphors.”

Colbert couldn’t help but point out the literal meaning of Kushner’s comment. He said, “So you’re a dead skin cell.” To which a smiling Portman replied, “Proudly.”

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS.
