Trivia:

One of only four actors with an Erdos-Bacon number - 7 for Portman. This represents sum of the degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon (2) and degrees of separation from co-authoring a paper with famed mathematician Paul Erdos (5) having co-authored the peer-reviewed paper "Frontal Lobe Activation during Object Permanence: Data from Near-Infrared Spectroscopy" while a student at Harvard.
