ANYWHERE BUT HERE
NATALIE PORTMAN (Ann August) has established herself as one of
Hollywood's most talented and sought-after young actresses.
Portman most recently starred as Queen Amidala in George Lucas' "Star
Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace." She will soon be starring in
"Where the Heart Is," with Ashley Judd, Joan Cusack, Stockard Channing
and Sally Field. The film will be released next year by Twentieth Century Fox.
Last year, Portman completed her Broadway debut run in the title role of
"The Diary of Anne Frank." Directed by James Lapine and adapted by
Wendy Kesselman, the production took a fresh look at the play, incorporating new
material from The 1995 Definitive Edition of Anne Frank's diaries. Portman
received international acclaim for her feature debut in Luc Besson's "The
Professional." Starring opposite Jean Reno and Gary Oldman, Portman played
Mathilda, a young girl who seeks refuge from a hitman after her parents are
killed by a corrupt DEA officer.
Portman received critical acclaim for her scene-stealing performance in the
film "Beautiful Girls." Directed by Ted Demme, the comedy also starred
Timothy Hutton, Uma Thurman, Rosie O'Donnell and Matt Dillon. Other feature
credits include Woody Allen's musical "Everyone Says I Love You,"
co-starring Julia Roberts, Goldie Hawn, Alan Alda and Drew Barrymore; Tim
Burton's black comedy "Mars Attacks!" with Jack Nicholson and Glenn
Close; and Michael Mann's "Heat" with Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and
Portman began college this fall.
