b. June 8, 1981
According to The Film Stage (2/22/2010), actress Natalie Portman is set to produce a road trip comedy "Best Buds" through her production company Handsome Charlie Films, co-produced by Vendome Pictures. The independently financed comedy is said to be in the vein of "Harold and Kumar" and "Half-Baked" and will center on two best female friends who take a road trip to their friendŐs wedding to save her by bringing her weed. "It'll be nice to see the budding actress and producer flex her comedy skills and hopefully subvert the stale stoner genre with a female twist," writes Film Stage.
Portman, known for playing Senator Amidala in the "Star Wars" prequels, received an Oscar nomination in 2004 for her work in "Closer." She has made some interesting career choices before, notably 2005's political thriller "V for Vendetta."
The 28-year-old actress recently told Marie Claire, "I didn't touch pot till I was in my 20s. I didn't get flat-out drunk until I went to college. But I think that's a good thing in many ways."
