Portman's parents met at a Jewish student center at Ohio State University, where Portman's mother was selling tickets. Portman's father returned to Israel, but the two corresponded and were married when Portman's mother visited Israel a few years later. When Portman was three years old, her family moved from Israel to her mother's native United States, where her father pursued his medical training.[6] The family lived in Washington, D.C. in 1984 (she attended the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School), and then Connecticut in 1988, before finally settling down in Syosset, New York in 1990.[6] For other uses, see Jew (disambiguation). ...

Early career

Portman started taking dancing lessons at the age of four.[6] She performed in local troupes, and dreamed of dancing on Broadway. At the age of twelve, Portman was discovered in a pizza parlor by an agent for Revlon, who offered her an opportunity to model.[6] However, she asked to be introduced to acting talent scouts instead of modeling agents. Referring to her discovery in an interview with Blender Magazine, Portman stated "I was definitely different from the other kids.

As a child, Portman spent her school holidays attending theater camps. In 1994, she auditioned for Luc Besson's film Léon (aka The Professional).

Portman was shown a new draft, and she joined the project.[6] The film opened in late 1999; she received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Ann August.

"Sarandon is good, but Portman is astonishing. Unlike any number of actresses her age, she's neither too maudlin nor too plucky. Her Ann is both a petulant wet blanket and a thoughtful, painfully lonely girl fumbling to find herself. Portman knows her character is the soul of the story, and she isn't overreaching about it. She portrays Ann's angst quietly, using her wide, expressive face to convey little ripples of frustration and exasperation. She's the counterpoint to Sarandon's bravado, and she keeps the film from becoming a hammy, anything-you-can-cry-I-can-cry-harder diva fest."[17]

In the late 1990s, Portman was cast as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and in early 1999, Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace opened and became the highest grossing film of the year and the second highest grossing film out of the Star Wars series.

Shortly before the film's opening, Portman shaved her head for her role in the film adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel, V for Vendetta, released in March 2006. Her shaved head was first seen publicly at the Revenge of the Sith premieres. "Making a dramatic change that isn't reversible is always a worthy experience," she said of the drastically different hairstyle, "and that sort of gave me the courage to do it."[18] She kept her hair short for most of 2005, had a fauxhawk, and briefly sported a full mohawk in late August, saying that it was "kind of wonderful to throw vanity away for a bit".[19] During the latter part of 2005, Portman filmed Goya's Ghosts.

Portman has commented on V for Vendetta's political relevance, and mentioned that her character, who joins an underground anti-government group, is "often bad and does things that you don't like" and that "Being from Israel was a reason I wanted to do this because terrorism and violence are such a daily part of my conversations since I was little." She said the film "doesn't make clear good or bad statements. It respects the audience enough to take away their own opinion".[24] Portman's upcoming films include Goya's Ghosts and Free Zone (an Israeli film which received a limited U.S. theatrical release in April 2006).
