I'm not sure how many of you guys out there are Natalie Portman fans but I sure am one of them.  Not only is she a risk taker in the roles she plays in films made in Hollywood (or Independently made), she also speaks fluent Hebrew and is a great supporter of Democratic causes.

I remember when Portman was a supporter of John Kerry back in 2004.  She went on ABC's Good Morning America and was told by Diane Sawyer, "Now if I'm gonna talk to you, you're gonna have to hold flowers here in front of the John Kerry (T-shirt). We can't just have John Kerry the whole time. Who do we bring in for equal time?"

Natalie replied back, " 'Come on, you've got (Bill O'Reilly's) The O'Reilly Factor. That's on television; that evens it out!...   "I love John Kerry! I just think he has the perfect combination of compassion and intelligence and composure under pressure and I'm just a huge fan.' "

(By the way, I can't embed the video on Natalie Portman's website.  Anyone want to do the honors at some other source?)

Well, Natalie Portman is back in the game again and this time, she's got a message:

Give it up for Padme Amidala, mother of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia!  

Oops, Natalie Portman.  Sorry!

3:41 PM PT: By the way, my personal favorite Natalie Portman film is "Garden State."  I'm sorry but I really fell in love with Portman's character of Sam.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
