Natalie Portman booking
Born in Israel in 1981, actress Natalie Portman grew up on Long Island, New York, and began modeling at age 11. Her film debut was in “The Professional,” and she was cast as Queen Amidala in the “Star Wars” prequels. While continuing her career, Portman earned a degree in psychology from Harvard. She then won the 2010 Best Actress Oscar for her role as a troubled dancer in “Black Swan.”
While at a local pizza parlor, Portman was discovered by a representative of Revlon cosmetics, who encouraged the 11-year-old to pursue a modeling career. However, Portman found modeling mundane, and decided to direct her efforts toward acting. Shortly after, she began working with the Usdan Theatre Arts Camp, where she appeared in a number of local productions. After her breakthrough role in ”The Professional,” she sustained her popularity with a brief but captivating performance as Al Pacino’s troubled daughter in “Heat.”
In 1997, she spent a year on Broadway in the title role of “The Diary of Anne Frank.” The play was a critical success, and Portman was credited with delivering a fresh interpretation of Frank’s character. She returned to film in 1999, gaining international recognition with the release of George Lucas’ eagerly anticipated prequel “Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace.” Later that same year, she was cast opposite Susan Sarandon in the film version of Mona Simpson’s novel “Anywhere But Here.” In 2000′s “Where the Heart Is,” Portman was featured in a more mature role in which her character ages five years during the course of the film.
Portman has also completed production on the second and third films in the “Star Wars” series, reprising her role as Queen Amidala. In 2004, Portman starred in 2004′s “Garden State.” In 2005, she won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in “Closer.”
Portman won critical praise for her role in 2006′s “V for Vendetta,” and she later starred in the historical drama “The Other Boleyn Girl” alongside Scarlett Johansson. Portman’s next big role was for “Black Swan.” Portman reportedly lost 20 pounds and went through rigorous dance training for the film, which was a critical success.
Other film credits include “No Strings Attached,” “Your Highness” and “Thor.”
Portman, who is an advocate for animal rights, has been a vegetarian since childhood. She became a vegan in 2009 after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Eating Animals.” She does not eat animal products or wear fur, feathers or leather. In 2007, she launched her own brand of vegan footwear.
