Natalie Portman Tells About Her Dirty Dancing Fangirl Moment

It seems no one is safe from becoming a fangirl. Even celebrities can go gaga over their favorite celebrities. Natalie Portman is just the current leading lady who has admitted to being star struck. Who is it? None other than Dirty Dancing’s leading lady, Jennifer Grey. Portman and Grey met at the synagogue that they both attend. It doesn’t seem like it went well when they first met (or at any other service). "She kind of gets the 'polite eyes' when she comes, because she knows I'm going to jump on her,” admits the sheepish actress. Natalie seems a bit embarrassed about her reactions to the star and wishes she didn’t get so nervous around Grey. However, her awkwardness doesn’t appear to stop Portman from having a “freak out” when she sees her at the synagogue. Apparently, her fangirl behavior does not stop Natalie from mentioning Dirty Dancing whenever she bumps into Jennifer. Portman admits to watching the late Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey’s movie “over and over”. However, she also adds, “I can't talk about it too much, or I'll start getting teary.” Natalie must really love the film is it makes her emotional! Besides Jennifer Grey and Dirty Dancing, Portman adores acting. The performer admits that motherhood is hard (although she loves the job), at least compared to acting. She feels that moms never have a day off and it’s a much more intensive job. “[T]hey work more than anyone,” the Black Swan actress muses. European fans of the actress will be able to see her in theatres starting October 30, 2013. She will star alongside Chris Hemsworth, Zachary Levi, and Anthony Hopkins as Jane Foster in Thor: The Dark World. North American moviegoers will have to wait until November 8, 2013 to see this movie in the cinema.
