Connections

Portman was named after the famous French song "Nathalie" by Gilbert Becaud.

After auditioning for a part in a theatre production in 1992, at the age of 11, Portman was instead chosen as one of the two understudies for the main role. The second girl chosen, her fellow understudy, was Britney Spears. The girl who got the part over us was Laura Bell Bundy.

While attending Harvard University from 1999 - 2003, Portman worked as the research assistant to Alan Dershowitz.

Portman briefly dated Jake Gyllenhaal in 2006.

Portman worked with Paul McCartney in 2007, when she appeared in the music video for his song "Dance Tonight." She starred in another McCartney music video in 2012, beside Johnny Depp for the song "My Valentine."

Portman traveled with Jack Hanna to Kigali, Rwanda in 2007 to film a nature documentary on gorillas.

Portman dated Devendra Banhart from 2007 - 2008, after appearing in his music video "Carmensita."

A vocal political activist, Portman has aided campaigns for John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama. Though she did not support John McCain, she stated to the media that she liked him, and that he was "a nice person."

Portman met ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied on the set of Black Swan in 2009, and they began dating. The couple had a son in 2011, and married in 2012 at a private Jewish ceremony in Big Sur, California.

Portman is a friend of Sofia Coppola.

Portman expressed interest in a luxurious and exclusive Tel Aviv penthouse in February of 2015, and ended up bidding for it against Madonna, who desperately wanted the property.
