Natalie Portman is one of Hollywood’s favorite actresses, but before dedicating herself to her career, she came a long way with her family and has a life story that captivates everyone.
Today we see them shine on the screens and we don’t want to miss any of the roles played by our favorite actors. It doesn’t matter if the plot is dramatic, fantastic, or action, we are faithful to their roles but, mainly, to those who know exactly how to put themselves in the shoes of each character. What we often ignore is the journey they had to take to achieve success and many of her stories are exquisite or even better than fiction.
One of my favorites is Natalie Portman. At this point, it is impossible to question her talent. Her acting ability made her win, for the same role, the most important awards for a performance: the Oscar, the BAFTA, the Golden Globe, and the Screen Actors Guild Award. Something that few have achieved in her career, she did in one year. In addition to her extensive arc, she put herself at risk by being part of one of the greatest sagas in history, the first episodes of Star Wars, which were not so well received.
Despite this setback, Natalie is highly applauded and has managed to concentrate on having a career in which her good choices in characters are exalted and not so much in her personal life, which is why she has been able to keep some details very private, such as the change that he had to make when he started his career.
Portman’s fame came at the age of 12, when she played a girl who had lost her parents and was saved by a hitman; In addition to having to get used to working with adults, the performer also made a drastic adjustment: naming her, because her name is not actually Natalie and she does not have her real last name either.
Her real full name is Neta-Lee Hershlag. She was born in 1981 in Jerusalem, so she has an Israeli origin (another great star born there was Gal Gadot), although her parents decided to emigrate to the United States when she was only three years old. Her family history is rich but full of tragedy.
Something that marked the lives of her parents was that her paternal great-grandparents were murdered in an Auschwitz concentration camp. But she also has a very interesting side because one of her maternal great-grandmothers worked as a spy for the British during World War II. Did you expect this information?
In addition to her overwhelming beauty, Neta-Lee is a female prodigy, with an IQ of 140 (116 is considered high). That’s why it’s not surprising that, in addition to being a success in acting, she is also a graduate of none other than Harvard, specializing in Psychology (resolved doubt as to why she understands her roles so well). To further surprise, another of her great qualities is that Portman speaks six languages, of course, her perfect English, and she can also communicate fluently in French, Japanese, German, Arabic, and, obviously, in her native language. she, the Hebrew.
Soon we can enjoy her on-screen in one of her most anticipated performances, her return to Marvel, in the movie Thor: Love and Thunder, but without objections, not only because of her tremendous performance but personally, Black Swan was the work that changed her life, since there she met the French dancer Benjamin Millepied, with whom she had two children.
