I forget how amazing Natalie Portman is. She's only 13 in one of the Dude and I's favorite movies and she's amazing in Closer and the first three episodes of Star Wars. She's got strong values and a great sense of her own culture. I grew up with a few Jewish kids when I lived in Texas and always loved Judaism. Jaime used to make dinner for Rosh Hashanah and I was on this wanting-to-convert kick for a few years, just because Judaism is so freaking beautiful. Natalie Portman makes me want to be a Jew.
