Apparently, “Saturday Night Live” is the perfect place for high school students to drink underage.
As Natalie Portman revealed during her Friday (Nov. 8) visit to “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” her high school years were full of moments backstage at “SNL” that could get Lorne Michaels into some trouble.
“When I was in high school, it was, like, a way for me to get in and listen to music and drink booze and go ice skating afterwards drunk, which is a fun thing to do,” the “Thor” actress told Fallon after he brought up how she used to show up and hang out backstage.
“That’s what we love to do at ‘Saturday Night Live,’ absolutely,” Fallon said with a laugh, clearly not expecting that to be her admission.
During the visit, the Oscar winner also spoke about upcoming move overseas. “We are moving to Paris in a year,” Portman said. “I’m really excited. Obviously, it’s a beautiful place to live. My husband [Benjamin Millepied] is going to be running the ballet company there, which is very exciting.”
