Natalie Portman Biography
Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem, Israel, in June of 1981. Her mother was a homemaker who is now Portman’s agent. Her father was a gynecologist and fertility specialist. Portman’s family moved to the US when she was only 3 years old so that her father could finish his medical training. Portman is a dual citizen of both the US and Israel. The family moved serval times, finally landing in Jericho, New York, on Long Island, in 1990. Portman attended Syosset High School and studied ballet and modern dance at the American Theater Dance Workshops.
Portman graduated from Harvard University with an B.A. degree in psychology. She then took graduate courses at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2004. Portman was a movie star long before she finished her education. She began her acting career when she was 13 in a movie called Leon: The Professional. She also starred in the 1999 Star Wars prequel trilogy. Portman has since gone on to star in numerous films, all while attending college, such as Free Zone, Goya’s Ghosts, V for Vendetta, The Other Boleyn Girl, Thor, and The Black Swan, which won her an Academy Award for Best Actress and a Golden Globe Award. Recently, Portman has released A Tale of Love and Darkness, which premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
In addition to her movies, Portman has her own brand of non-leather footwear. She is a strict vegan but returned to vegetarianism while she was pregnant. She has one son with her husband, Benjamin, whom she met on the set of Black Swan. Black Swan dramatically increased Portman’s net worth and launched her right into the millionaires club. Portman is one of the most popular actresses of our time, which means she can pick and choose her acting roles. Portman has a net worth of $54 million, which should increase over the coming years as she continues to make blockbuster movies.
