Natalie Portman Not since the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly has an actress
possessed such a potent cocktail of elegance and beauty as Natalie Portman. Armed with a
maturity well beyond her years and a subtle sexuality that creeps up on you (it emerged full
force in Closer), Portman has become one of the most coveted and successful actresses in

When Natalie was ten she was spotted by a man from Revlon and he introduced her to Revlon
agents and she told them that she didn’t want to model, she wanted to act, so they introduced
her to acting agents. She spent three summers in a theater camp. After that she skipped a grade
due to her excellent grades and was put in the 8th grade. Most people in her school considered
as a dork cause she loved school so much. In 1993 Natalie made her first performance in the off-
broadway musical “Ruthless” as an understudy. “I kept laughing on stage because I was having
so much fun with this other girl, she would cross her eyes at me and I would start laughing, and
people would be like, Natalie your not supposed to laugh on stage. She participated at the
auditions for the role in “The Professional“, she was first rejected for being to young, then after
some more auditions the director Luc Besson chose her to play Mathilda Lando. NatalieÍs
parents felt the script was to violent and ask for it to be adjusted. The adjustments were made,
which led to a different ending.

When Natalie was filming outside of New York her and her mother went to Paris. Her father
urged her to read the Diary of Anne Frank, when they went to Anne Frank’s house in
Amsterdam. The book had a big impact on Natalie’s life.

Even from a young age, in films like The Professional and Beautiful Girls, Portman was an
object of desire (in those cases for men many years her senior). Now in her late 20s, Portman is
a picture of grace and intelligence (Harvard!), and can exude a raw sexuality (watch Closer again
and again) that most women spend their entire lives trying to achieve. The actress is notoriously
private and has kept alleged relationships with the likes of Jude Law, Jake Gyllenhaal, Gael
Garcia Bernal, and Devendra Banhart tightly under wraps, and we like it that way.
