Natalie Portman born in Jerusalem

9 Jun, 1981

Natalie Portman ChildNatalie Portman, originally Natalie Hershlag, is born in Jerusalem to American Shelley Stevens and Israeli doctor Avner Hershlag. She and her family moved to the United States in 1984. She spends most of her childhood in New York, where she enrolled in theatrical camps and ballet classes.

As a child, I idealized ballet because, as a little girl, you just think of it as this pretty, light, delicate and feminine thing.
