  1. The girl’s parents stood up against their daughter’s participation in Luc Besson’s Léon: The Professional. Not only was the role of Mathilda sensitive for an eleven-year-old child, but it would inevitably lead to unnecessary sexualization. Natalie was persistent; her endeavor paid off when millions loved the movie – and, of course, the young star.
  2. Portman can do anything for a good role – how about shaving one’s head? The antiutopian action V for Vendetta is a great page in her filmography, marked with the Saturn Awards in 2006.
  3. The artist looks perfectly fit in any environment and genre, from a historical entourage (The Other Boleyn Girl) to fantastic projects (the Star Wars franchise).
  4. She is a talented director as well: the 2015 drama A Tale of Love and Darkness was her debuting project.
  5. In 2007, Portman presented her first collection of vegan-friendly shoes. Is there something this woman is incapable of?
  6. The Academy Awards for Black Swan (2010) cost her much artistic labor, 16 kg. lost, a broken rib, and a sprained ankle. Natalie was not a newbie in dancing, though: she had taken ballet lessons in her childhood.
  7. Schedules might get too busy if you’re an actress of Natalie’s level. Portman did not participate in the kiss scene in Thor: The Dark World due to some time-table issues; Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky replaced her.
  8. The 16-year-old youth took her job in Star Wars seriously. She told Vanity Fair she derived her inspiration for the role of Padmé Amidala in the Kabuki culture. Portman did not receive the desirable reaction, though: “I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade, and no director wanted to work with me”.
  9. The actress hacked upon her voice while working on the biopic Jackie about the widow of assassinated John F. Kennedy. Enthusiasts compared the former first lady’s recordings with Natalie’s scenes: “it's almost impossible to tell them apart”. However, Portman did not have the Best Actress prize this time: Mia Dolan (La La Land) surpassed her.
  10. Natalie Portman’s recent character in Lucy in the Sky (2019) is based on the actual astronaut Lisa Nowak.
