Portman Is Hollywood’s Most Bankable
Natalie Portman is the queen of bank, according to Forbes, which reported that the star gives the best bang for the buck in box-office returns. The acclaimed Jewish actress cashed in with her performance in Darren Aronofsky’s 2010 Oscar-winning thriller “Black Swan,” in which she played a deranged ballerina. The film, which was made for just $13 million, grossed $329 million at the box office. Forbes determined its choices on the most bankable list based on the last three films of each actor, comparing the salary paid to the star with box-office results and the actual cost of the film.
