Who Is Natalie Portman
A Harvard brainiac turned Hollywood darling, Natalie Portman is the girl that every aspiring actress hopes to model her career after and every guy wants to take home to meet mom and dad.
Award winning actress Natalie Portman has a net worth of $100 million dollars, as of 2020.
The Makings Of A Smart Artist
Born in Jerusalem to a doctor father and an artist mother (who is also Natalie’s agent) as Natalie Hershlag, Natalie had all the makings of one of Hollywood’s smartest actresses. From Israel, Natalie’s family ended up in New York where a hankering for pizza at the age of 11 would set her up for one of the most successful careers in the industry.
An agent who thought she had potential at a career in modeling discovered Natalie in a pizza shop. But Natalie soon found that modeling wasn’t her calling and switched over to the acting side of things. Her first appearance was in the flick The Professional in 1994 before landing roles in films like Heat (1995), Beautiful Girls (1996) and Mars Attacks! (1996). It was clear that Natalie’s choice to ditch one camera for another was the right choice.
But three years later, in 1999, Natalie would land a role in a film that would put her on the walls of every sci-fi geek and on the short list of every major director in Hollywood. Natalie donned a pair of the famed braided side buns in the cult-obsessed Star Wars franchise. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace was this film that earned her roles in movies like Anywhere But Here that same year, Where the Heart Is (2000), indie flick film Garden State (2004) and the racy drama Closer (2004), for which she won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting actress.
Natalie The Rapper
But in 2004, Natalie showed that she was more than just a straight-laced good girl when she made comedic headlines for her appearance in an SNL Digital Short—rapping alongside Andy Samberg.
But back to the serious acting she’s known for, Natalie took it all off—her hair, that is—for her politically charged role in V for Vendetta (2006) before donning a corset in the The Other Boleyn Girl (2008) and getting physical in Brothers (2009).
The Politics Of Kissing Girls
But just as aspiring actresses have chosen Natalie as their role model so too have do-gooders and environmentalists around the world. The vegan who does not eat or wear any animal products, has campaigned for the likes of John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and supports female entrepreneurship and micro lending agencies in third world countries.
But in 2009 on the set of her newest flick Black Swan, Natalie turned her political passion to something a bit more romantic when she began dating film choreographer and ballet dancer, Benjamin Millepied. We’re guessing that Natalie got a few private dance lessons from her beau for her role in flick, which includes a lesbian sex-scene with costar Mila Kunis. But Natalie’s performance in the dancing film didn’t only land her an Academy Award for Best Actress but a different golden trophy of sorts — Natalie and now fiance, Millepied, are expecting a son together.
Defining Quote “OK, so I didn’t really go to high school parties, and yeah, I didn’t touch pot till I was in my 20s. I didn’t get flat-out drunk until I went to college. But I think that’s a good thing in many ways.”
