Girl crush

Natalie Portman: what’s not to love?

I think every girl has an infatuation with another member of the female sex.

My confession is that I have a massive girl crush on Natalie Portman. She is totally hot and amazing at what she does.

Her extra-curricular activities whilst studying for a Psychology degree at Harvard included filming the Star Wars prequels. She somehow manages to be a massive over achiever but still incredibly likeable. Natalie may look sweet and lovely in her new perfume adverts but she is a big lover of filthy hip hop, showing her funny side during a rap for Saturday Night live, showcasing some of her favourite swear words.

She also has a great sense of morality, refusing to wear Dior at the Oscars as she previously intended, after John Galliano made anti- Semitic slurs in a Paris cafe.

Natalie Portman: what’s not to love? I should hate her because she’s so amazing. Instead, I just want to be her.
