When and where Natalie Portman got her start is up for debate.
Some day she got her start in 1994’s The Young Professional and some say she got her start in 1996’s “Beautiful Girls” as the young love interest or crush of Timothy Hutton.
Natalie’s performance in Beautiful Girls was unforgettable. Since the 1990s Natalie Portman has starred in countless movies including Star Wars Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace as Queen Amidala. She also starred opposite Zach Braff in his directorial debut of Garden State. Her performance in Garden State was incredible.
Portman also portrayed Anne Frank on Broadway in 1997. It was in Anne Frank that Portman received highest acclaim from The New York Times critic Ben Brantley.
Amidst all her glory and fame for acting on screen and on Broadway, Natalie Portman is also a Harvard graduate.
Keeping her private life just that; private, Portman continues to shock and awe mainstream America with nuances such as her love of dirty rap music and her romances with actors Gael Garcia Bernal and Jake Gyllenhaal.
An animal activist, Natalie Portman is also a vegetarian since childhood, friends with Keri Russell and Britney Spears, and was rejected for the role of Juliet in William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet because she looked too young to star opposite the handsome and alluring Leonardo DiCaprio.
