Where You’ve Seen Her: We first saw Natalie Portman in Leon the Professional in 1994, and lucky for us, we haven't stopped seeing the Harvard grad since then. With roles in Star Wars Episodes I-III, Cold Mountain, Garden State, Closer, V for Vendetta, and The Other Boleyn Girl, she’s become one of the most famous stars in the world. For playing a psychotic New York ballerina in Black Swan, she won the Oscar, BAFTA, SAG, Golden Globe, and Independent Awards for Best Actress. This year will no doubt be huge for Natalie with films No Strings Attached, Thor, and Your Highness, in theatres today.
Random Fact: She was born with the last name "Hershlag" but took her grandmother's maiden name after getting the part in The Professional. Thank God.
