NATALIE PORTMAN recently completed production on Mike Nichols' big-screen adaptation of Patrick Marber's Broadway hit CLOSER, opposite Jude Law, Julia Roberts and Clive Owen.
She was last seen in Anthony Minghella's adaptation of the best-selling novel COLD MOUNTAIN, opposite Jude Law, Nicole Kidman and RenÃ©e Zellweger.
In the summer of 2003, Portman filmed the final installment of George Lucas' STAR WARS trilogy with Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor for Twentieth Century Fox. In 2002, Portman starred as Senator Amidala in STAR WARS: EPISODE II - ATTACK OF THE CLONES, following the huge success of Lucas' blockbuster hit STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE, in which her character was introduced. Both films, prequels to Lucas' wildly popular STAR WARS trilogy of the 70s and 80s, rank among the top-grossing films ever produced worldwide. Portman was also recently seen in Tom Tykwer's short film TRUE as part of the feature film PARIS JE T'AIME.
For her role as Susan Sarandon's daughter in Wayne Wang's ANYWHERE BUT HERE, Portman was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. She received international acclaim for her feature debut in Luc Besson's THE PROFESSIONAL and received further recognition for her movie-stealing performance in the Ted Demme film BEAUTIFUL GIRLS and for her starring role opposite Ashley Judd in the coming of age story WHERE THE HEART IS.
Other feature credits include the Woody Allen 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 DeNiro and Val Kilmer.
Portman received critical acclaim as Nina in Mike Nichol's Shakespeare in the Park production of "The Seagull" opposite Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, and Philip Seymour Hoffman for the New York Shakespeare Festival. In the 1997-1998 Broadway season, Portman starred in the title role of "The Diary of Anne Frank," praised by USA Today as "a landmark performance."
