Added DiffLines:

* IvyLeagueForEveryone: Portman attended Harvard while also filming the Star Wars prequels, and acquited herself very well academically. She's one of the very few people with a [[SixDegreesOfKevinBacon combined Erdős-Bacon number]] (tracking her on-screen connection to Kevin Bacon and her academic publishing connection to mathematician Paul Erdős) in the single digits.

* CrypticConversation / HidingBehindTheLanguageBarrier: Used as a joke in an ''Inside The Actors Studio'' issue, where [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FR0liN8tnio she said a line in Hebrew]] (at the very end of this interview part) and then, when asked of its meaning, playfully answered: "It's for me to know and you to find out". Since then, people on the Internet have been asking about it. (If you want to know, what she said is: [[spoiler:In a month, I'm going to Israel to study at the University.]]) Besides, she mentioned in an [[http://www.natalieportman.com/npcom.php?page_number=21&viewarticle=2&article_number=431 interview]] that she likes using Hebrew as a Secret Language.

** Padmé Amidala in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' Prequels.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Her star-making role (see above) could've been much earlier. She was cast as [[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet Juliet]] in ''WilliamShakespearesRomeoAndJuliet'' opposite Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio, except screen-tests apparently made it appear as though 21-year old [=DiCaprio=] was "molesting" the then 14-year old Portman.
