Portman Bigs Up Fry, Johansson And Being Jewish

Published on February 24, 2008 with No Comments

Natalie PortmanActress Natalie Portman has revealed her all time favourite co-star is Stephen Fry.

“I wanted to spend all my time with him. He is awesome,” the Star Wars beauty revealed to The Times when they shared a screen in V for Vendetta.

Portman says she appreciates his intellect and believes they have a similar personality. “I would much rather read a book or write a letter than watch television or send an e-mail. And I value good spelling. Spelling errors are a total pet peeve, which is embarrassing.”

Of her new film with Scarlett Johansson, Portman jokes that the two of them should be known as “The Hot Knishes” in reference to when Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek made a film together and were called “The Hot Tamales”.

Portman also confirmed that she is proud of her Jewish heritage. “I identify very strongly as Jewish, but I could be Indian, Puerto Rican . . . Anything that gives you a cultural identity makes you know who you are and grounds you, even as a young girl trying on identities.”
