It’s not a career; it’s a passion. Ballet is Nina’s whole life, and when Portman took on the role she trained like a real ballerina, too. In the horror drama, she begins to unravel when she’s batted around by newcomer Lily (Mila Kunis). It’s a side of Portman seldom seen and anxiously enjoyed.
Watching the best Natalie Portman movies is a trip back in time through the actor’s lifetime, starting when she made her film debut at age 12 in the role of a child who wants to be an assassin. Through her 22-year career, she’s gone from small-town troubled teen to action movies extraordinaire to star of some of the best movies of all time. Oh, and she graduated from Harvard somewhere in the meantime. Cue up the movies on Netflix and start binging.
