Natalie Portman lost her childhood

Natalie Portman regrets working at such a young age. Starring in Léon at only 11, she had a grow up quickly and lost out on much of her childhood. Natalie says,

“I do kind of feel that I lost part of my childhood. I was one of those kids that always wanted to be older, which I now think is a shame. I try to make up for that now by being outdoors more, playing, being silly and not being afraid of that. I don’t feel that I missed out on a normal life, but when I was a kid I wasn’t out playing in the mud.”

Natalie made money, traveled the world, met lots of interesting people, grew up to be super pretty and super rich, but what she really longs for is the awkwardness of adolescence. Here’s a list of exciting childhood experiences I had that Natalie may have missed out on: …Um, there was that time I thought I found real silver while playing in the dirt. Turns out it was part of someone’s retainer. That’s basically it. Although, if Natalie really wants to reclaim her youth. I’ll help her out. There’s a cool game kids play when they’re young. I think it’s called doctor. I’ve never played it before, but if it’s anything like the real thing then it’ll just be her crying at the end of the exam and me telling her not to say anything to her parents.
