Arcee: Wow, I can’t believe that one of my favorite film stars is now 30 years old. I am talking about the beautiful Natalie Portman. Born Natalie Hershlag in Jerusalem, Israel, she has become one of the most respected and admired film actresses of our day since making her debut in the action-thriller film Leon (also known as The Professional). Since then, she has gone on to star in more than thirty film roles and has been nominated for multiple awards, winning several of them including a Golden Globe, a SAG Award and even an Academy Award. In honor of her 30th birthday, I would like to take the time and list my favorite movies starring this beautiful young woman and why it is that I like them. Hopefully, in the years to come and I celebrate her 40th birthday in ten years, there will be several more films added to this list. But for now, the list I have is as follows.
