* DyeingForYourArt: [[invoked]] She had her head shaved on camera for ''Film/VForVendetta'', and lost 20 pounds to play a ballerina in Creator/DarrenAronofsky's ''Film/BlackSwan''.



* StarMakingRole: [[invoked]] Padmé Amidala in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' Prequels.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[invoked]]
** Her star-making role (see above) could've been much earlier. She was cast as [[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet Juliet]] in ''Film/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. ([[ValuesDissonance Which is actually rather accurate to the original play]]: Juliet was ''thirteen''.)
** Christina Ricci said once that a lot of the movies she made during the late 90s-early 00s, were films Natalie Portman had turned down, although she didn't say which films exactly.
** She was very enthusiastic about returning to her role as Jane Foster for ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}},'' but she was very pregnant at the time.

* AuthorTract: She was quite pro-Israel in her 20s (She was born there) and worked as a research assistant on a book called ''The Case for Israel'' by prominent civil liberties lawyer (and pro-Israel hawk) Alan Dershowitz. Since then, she's come out in vocal support of the two-state solution and is highly critical of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.
