Famous quotes by Natalie Portman (42)
"I was like a total cliched '80s child. I had Barbies, obviously, as well as My Little Ponies and Cabbage Patch Kids, but I used to destroy them. I used to draw all over their faces and cut off their hair"
"I usually dress very casual. Whenever I go out with my friends, I'm always like, 'Can't I just wear sweatpants?'"
"I like acting for now. But after seeing Apollo 13, what I really want to do is to be an astronaut. I'm dying to go to a space camp next summer!"
"When I was in nursery school, the teachers asked me, y'know, 'What does your dad do for a living?' So I said 'He helps women get pregnant!' They called my mom and they were like, 'What exactly does your husband do?'"
"My dad's a doctor, and when I was 8, I went to one of his medical conferences where they were demonstrating laser surgery on a chicken. I was so mad that a chicken had to die, I never ate meat again"
"I'm not convinced about marriage. Divorce is so easy, and that fact that gay people are not allowed to marry takes much of the meaning out of it. Committing yourself to one person is sacred"
"I tend to lean toward strong female stories. I want to make things that don't already exist out there"
"I don't have a normal job, so I really appreciate having friends who are writers and artists. It's fun to have a group of people you can call in the middle of the day to go for a hike"

"When I was 7 years old, I put on shows for everyone at my grandpa's funeral. I was always the little entertainer"
"Well, right now, I'm very fascinated with 1920s Berlin. I mean, probably the more interesting thing would be to go to the beginning of civilization or precivilization - like polytheistic times. It would be interesting to see what came before modern religion and culture - what circumstances created the environment or the need for it"
"I'm afraid of everything. But maybe when you're afraid of everything, it sort of seems like you're scared of nothing"

"I always ask myself, would I want someone to do something that wasn't comfortable for them just to please me? And the answer is no"
"Going to a party, for me, is as much a learning experience as, you know, sitting in a lecture"
