Smarter Than The Average Movie Star Natalie Portman Turns 30

6/9/2011 10:00am EDT
Natalie Portman
“I'd rather be smart than a movie star,” Natalie Portman once said. ...Turns out she’s both.

The young actress has always been a fascinating contradiction. Youthful in appearance, yet always so mature in her choices, her acting and her lifestyle. A child star who was never childish, (even at just 12 years of age in Leon), she has a natural maturity far beyond any of her peers. Which is why she’s lasted where others have crashed and burned.

Discovered by an agent in a pizza parlour at the age of 11, Portman was being groomed for a modelling career before deciding she’d rather pursue acting...

Natalie Portman: The Best Actress Of Her Generation?

Since her intense breakout role in 1994’s “The Professional,” Natalie Portman has been one of the most respected and versatile actors working in Hollywood.

Luc Besson (“The Professional”)

Michael Mann (“Heat”)

Ted Demme (“Beautiful Girls”)

BERLIN (AP) — Renee Zellweger plays a 1950s housewife who leaves her husband and takes her teenage sons on a cross-country trip that becomes a journey of self-discovery in "My One and Only," which had its world premiere Thursday at the Berlin film festival.

Based loosely on actor George Hamilton's tale of how his mother brought him and a brother to Hollywood, the film rolls a love story, road movie and coming of age tale with a heavy dose of wry humor into one.

"This was one of the great unmade scripts of Hollywood. Everyone wanted to read it, everyone loved it, but no one wanted ...
