Natalie Portman has really cemented herself in the geek community as one of the familiar faces we want to see in geeky movies. She has done a stellar job playing Dr. Jane Foster in “Thor”, and really impressed as Padmé, mother of the legendary Luke Skywalker in “Star Wars”. Even a shaved head in the critically acclaimed “V-for Vendetta” couldn’t mask her beauty when she played Evey Hammond.
