The fact that Marling is doing stardom her way will probably ring true to her classmates at Georgetown, where she majored in economics and studio art. (She grew up in Chicago and Florida.) After a summer interning at Goldman Sachs, she turned down a job offer at the investment bank, telling them she wanted to be an artist. As class valedictorian, she told the assembled students, faculty and parents that she doubted getting straight A’s was something to aspire to. Rather, it might be a sign of not being a rebellious-enough thinker or not taking enough risks.
