Name: Natalie Portman (born Natalie Hershlag)
Born: 9 June 1981
Natalie was the only child born to Shelley, a homemaker and Avner, a doctor. She was born in Jerusalem but the family moved to the U.S. when she was just three. She began taking dancing lessons at the age of four, performing locally. As a young girl she was spotted by an agent who approached her about modeling, but she was determined to pursue acting. She was an understudy off Broadway, but eventually got her first big break as Mathilda in the movie Léon: The Professional. The movie was well received both critically and by viewers.
From that point on, Portman had no problems getting roles. She has been in many movies including those such as Mars Attacks!, Cold Mountain, V for Vendetta, and Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium. It was her portrayal of Padmé Amidala in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace that got her worldwide attention. She also starred in the same role for the second and third episodes of the Star Wars franchise.
During her busy career she attended and graduated from Harvard with a degree in psychology.
Natalie has been nominated for and won many awards, but the most impressive is her Golden Globe and Academy Award for her portrayal of Nina Sayers in the critically acclaimed Black Swan. It was during filming for this movie that she met her husband, Benjamin Millepied with who she has one child. We estimate Natalie Portman to be worth $32,000,000 (GBP 20,354,490).
So how much is $32 million dollars really?
Since Black Swan was the movie that got Natalie both her Golden Globe and Academy Awards, not to mention that new husband of hers, we can only imagine how much she still loves those ballet slippers. For $32 million she could easily buy 1,844,380 pairs. But after six months of dance training for the movie, she’s probably more accustomed to pointe shoes. For her money, she could buy 492,307 pairs.
Since no one really needs that many shoes, Natalie may be better off just flying back to Israel to visit her relatives. Since she has dual citizenship, she can come and go as she pleases, and for $32 million she can come and go as she pleases over 18,823 times, unless she wants to take her family. Then she’ll have to be satisfied with visiting much less often.
