Natalie Portman is sharing rare stories about her childhood, and we’re all ears.
The 39-year-old actress appeared on yesterday’s episode of the Mom Brain podcast, where she discussed never-before-heard details about growing up as a child star. Portman admitted that she feels “very lucky” to have started when she did because the experience taught her invaluable life lessons.
“For me, it was something that I really wanted to do,” she said. “My parents were super protective, always by my side. I really had an incredible experience where I got to play and travel and meet interesting people and be exposed to a lot of ideas and cultures that I think I never would have had the opportunity to.”
