I like Natalie Portman, I like the roles she's played in Star Wars, The Professional, V for Vendetta, ect, and I think she is good. Hayden Christia...what's his name, Anakin as well. To be fair part of the problem is the script but most Star Wars actors are not considered on the level of such illustrious people as Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, ect. But I like Portman, Christis...ahhh him, Ford and Jackson better.
I'm not sure if Natalie Portman is actually Jewish but I know she is Israeli, and spoke of her support for Israel in Empire IIRC. Do I look up to her? I look at the roles she plays and the reason she plays the roles, with Evey being an absolute perfect example, and think 'good on her' for playing these roles. If she was in an upcoming movie I'd see it. The same for Hayden, Ford and Jackson, as well as Keither Sutherland, Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith, Jennifer Hale, Jennifer Garner, Dwayne Johnson, ect, ect, ect.
