Natalie Portman Says Going On Hiatus After 'Black Swan' Oscar Win Was 'Well Worth It'!

Natalie Portman is opening up about going on hiatus from acting to spend time with her family after winning Best Actress for Black Swan at the 2011 Oscars.

“For me, it was instinct. Most women don’t have that luxury,” the 35-year-old pregnant actress told TIME. “I feel really lucky that I got to be at home as much as I wanted. And when I was ready to work again, it wasn’t that I had mountains of offers at my door, but I could still find something. It was well worth it for me.”

Natalie kept it cute and simple while attending The Film Independent screening and Q&A for her much-buzzed film Jackie with producer of the flick Mickey Liddell at LACMA on Thursday (November 17) in Los Angeles.

FYI: Natalie is wearing a Hatch dress paired with Dior shoes.

    She didn’t want to answer the questions of why she lied about doing the dancing in Black Swan. Thats why she didn’t show her face after the Oscar win and her pregenacy. Stupid woman.

    She didnt get much work after her win because she has a limited amount of talent as an actress and everyone in Hollywood knew it, especially after thr truth came out.
