Natalie Portman Birthplace, Natalie Hershlag (born June 9, 1981), better known by her stage name Natalie Portman, is an actress with dual American and Israeli citizenship.

Her first role was as an orphan taken in by a hitman in the 1994 French action film Léon, but major success came when she was cast as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy (released in 1999, 2002 and 2005). In 1999, she enrolled at Harvard University to study psychology while still working as an actress. She completed her bachelor’s degree in 2003.

Portman was born in Jerusalem, Israel. She is the only child of Shelley (née Stevens), an American homemaker who works as Portman’s agent, and Avner Hershlag, an Israeli citizen who is a fertility specialist and gynecologist. Portman’s maternal ancestors were Jewish immigrants to the United States, from Austria and Russia (her mother’s family had changed their surname from “Edelstein” to “Stevens”).

Her paternal ancestors were Jews who moved to Israel from Poland and Romania. Her paternal grandfather, whose parents died at Auschwitz, was an economics professor in Israel, and her Romanian-born great-grandmother was a spy for British Intelligence during World War II.

Natalie Portman Hotel Chevalier Pics:Did you happen to hear about the short film by Wes Anderson called Hotel Chevalier, starring Natalie Portman and Jason Schwartzman? A nude scene from the film with Natalie Portman was leaked last year, and the brilliant film was reduced to a sex tape as the video went viral. And it’s gone viral again.

Natalie says that because of what happened online, she won’t do such a film scene again. And I don’t blame her. She says: “It really depressed me that half of every review of the film was about . . . [that] . . . My issue is that I feel it takes something away from what you’re doing when the focus is put on the wrong thing.”
