Natalie Portman is so near-perfect that many people just can’t fathom how she’s gone from
child star in Lolita-esque roles in "The Professional" and "Beautiful Girls" to a bona fide adult
actress (not that kind) in "V for Vendetta", "Closer" and "The Other Boleyn Girl" without a bad
word about her in the tabloids, a drug scandal or a sex tape. Throw in the fact that she was able
to poke fun at her clean record in the SNL Digital Short rap video, took a break from Hollywood
to go to Harvard and has done the near impossible and kept her private life private, and she
could write a Hollywood survival guide for all the Lindsay Lohans out there. Always a favorite
with the Delta judges Natalie has never been out of our top 10. From a young age it has always
been obvious that Natalie was a unique talent. Her maturity was evident from the beginning,
both in the roles she chose and the quality of her performances. In her still young but already
full career she shows off her directing, producing, and acting talents in three different films this
year.

In 2010, Portman will star in the fantasy adventure "Your Highness" opposite fellow Top 99er
Zooey Deschanel and James Franco, the Darren Aronofsky ballerina-rivalry thriller "Black
Swan" opposite another Top 99er, Mila Kunis, and the drama "Hesher" opposite indie prince
Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Portman has also seen the value in taking on classics with a twist: She's
set to produce and star in "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". While Lindsay Lohan’s private
life has overshadowed and ultimately eclipsed her acting career, as far as young Hollywood
actresses go, Natalie Portman is the professional.
