Well, I am not saying this is true of her in real life but many times she comes off as being put out with acting. What I mean to say, is that I get the feeling like when she is saying her lines that inside she is saying, and I am getting paid three million for this crap. Portman has a fairly high IQ, she goes to Harvard. At times again she comes off like she is very bored and thinks acting is a bit cheesy, that she maybe is wasting her time with it. So, she fakes her way through it and uses her looks to get by. Well, that only works for so long, then as people see you in more roles, they can see through what is going on, and the looks will not cut it. Some people say she has her nose in the air in real life<----I am not sure about that but, if she is faking it, like I think she is, it will catch up with her. Frankly, I think it has.
