Without wasting much time, let’s take a look at the actress journey from the beginning to the end.
Natalie Portman started dancing lessons at age four and performed in local troupes. At the age of 10, a Revlon agent asked her to become a child model, but she turned down the offer to focus on acting. In a magazine interview, Portman said that she was “different from the other kids.
I was more ambitious. I knew what I liked and what I wanted, and I worked very hard. I was a very serious kid. On school holidays, Natalie Portman attended theatre camps.
When she was 10, Natalie Portman auditioned for the 1992 off-Broadway show Ruthless!, a musical about a girl who is prepared to commit murder to get the lead in a school play. Portman and future pop star Britney Spears were chosen as the understudies for star Laura Bell Bundy.
In 1993, she auditioned for the role of an orphan child who befriends a middle-aged hitman (played by Jean Reno) in Luc Besson’s film, Léon: The Professional.
Soon after getting the part, she took her paternal grandmother’s maiden name, “Portman”, as her stage name in the interest of privacy and to protect her family’s identity. Léon: The Professional opened in 1994, marking her feature film debut
It was after 1996’s Beautiful Girls that Portman grew reluctant to accept roles where her character was a sexualized youngster.
In an interview with Guardian feature writer Simon Hattenstone asked if Portman was aware that because of them she was a “paedophile’s dream”? Portman nodded a bit uncomfortably, stating that it “dictated a lot of my choices afterwards ‘cos it scared me…it made me reluctant to do sexy stuff, especially when I was young”.
After filming Where the Heart Is, Portman moved into the dorms of Harvard University to pursue her bachelor’s degree in psychology. She said in a 1999 interview that, with the exception of the Star Wars prequels, she would not act for the next four years in order to concentrate on studying.
In 2016, Portman played the title role in director Pablo Larrain’s Jackie, a biographical drama about 1960s American First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, following the death of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. The performance earned her a SAG Award in addition to nominations for the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, and BAFTA Award for Best Actress.
In 2018, Portman starred in the science fiction horror film Annihilation, as a biologist and former soldier. Benjamin Lee of The Guardian called Portman “a strong, fiercely compelling presence, investing us in both her mission and her interlinked marriage (flashbacks to her relationship with Isaac are surprisingly sweet, witty and sexy), providing an emotional centre without the need for sentimentality.”
Natalie Portman Quotes
