Natalie Portman is all smiles while arriving on the set of Good Morning America to promote her latest film A Tale of Love and Darkness on Monday morning (August 15) in New York City’s Times Square.

“I read the book for the first time about 10 years ago when it first came out in translation and immediately I started seeing the film In front of my eyes,” Natalie expressed. “I knew that it had to be my first film to direct because it was so immediate in my mind. It was actually really empowering.”
