MSNBC film critic Alonso Duralde has rounded up six lessons Hollywood starlets can learn from the youngest Star Wars royalty, Natalie Portman. He writes:
In an age of starlets gone wild â€” and the pursuit of same by the insatiable scandal-sheet press corps â€” Portman has risen to the top of her profession with smarts and class. Even if all of her film choices werenâ€™t the greatest â€” anybody remember â€œWhere the Heart Isâ€? â€” sheâ€™s hit upon a winning formula for playing the fame game, and her peers would do well to follow her lead.
He also adds a seventh: "...remember to wear panties when exiting a limousine."
Kidding aside, this is a really nice article showing how Ms. Portman clearly has a good head on her shoulders and is handling herself -- and her career -- with style and class. It's a good read.
