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.
