Ah, Natalie Portman. What is there to say about the beauty, grace and talent that this delicate flower embodies that hasn't been said already? (And probably far more eloquently than I could possibly drum up.) She started with a bang, impressing audiences by holding her own against Jean Reno and Gary Oldman in LEON (or otherwise known as THE PROFESSIONAL), went on to multiple critically lauded performances, and has become a hottie darling amongst pretty much every age group.
Nat is turning 27 today. It's hard to believe that as greatly admired and as widely known as she is, her resume only holds 24 full length features (not including two others due out later this year, PARIS, I LOVE YOU and BROTHERS) to her name. She has this warm and welcoming familiar feel to her, as if you know her personally and have hung out with her for years. And don't lie, you know you watched her in BEAUTIFUL GIRLS and hoped that she would grow up as hot as Timothy Hutton suspected she would. Happy Birthday to our favorite beautiful girl. May you always maintain that comfortable feel to you.
