American actress/model Natalie Portman has topped Forbes Magazine’s latest released list of best value stars in Hollywood. The basis of this compilation is on the overall earnings amassed by her films in the past ten years.
Portman emerged on top of the list comprising of Kristen Stewart, Shia Laboeuf and Robert Pattinson. Based on the magazine’s compilation, every $1 dollar paid to Portman for making a movie gained $42.70 afterward.
According to the magazine, the success of “Black Swan” last year has paved the way for Portman to acquire the Best Actress trophy during the Oscar Awards and the main reason why she is number 1 on its list today.
The film “Black Swan” she starred only has $13 million as general budget for the making but has earned $329 million in the box office takings worldwide.
Aside from “Black Swan,” Portman’s comedy film “No Strings Attached” also contributed much to her total earnings amassed in the past decade. In fact, its initial budget of $25 million for the making has transformed into $150 million profit later on. The historical blowout “Your Highness” in 2010, ended up less popular than her other films, though.
Next in Forbes’ top box officer performer compilation this year is the “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart, making $40.60 for every dollar she was paid. According to Forbes, her role as Bella Swan in the said movie has imparted much to her success over the last three years.
Meanwhile, the third spot is occupied by the actor Shia Laboeuf, who starred another box office film “Transformers.” He is followed by Robert Pattinson, Stewart’s co-star in Twilight, taking the fourth spot in the list. And completing the top five is the “Harry Potter” actor Daniel Radcliffe.
Other Hollywood names appearing in the same digest by Forbes include Taylor Lautner who came in sixth, Bradley Cooper in seventh and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in eighth spot.
The only other female Hollywood star appearing in the list besides Portman is The Master’s Amy Adams, occupying the ninth rank. And finally, rounding out the top ten is the famed comedy actor Kevin James.
Natalie Portman is best known for her Oscar-winning performance as a troubled ballerina in the movie “Black Swan.” Besides augmenting her popularity, the movie also boosted her movie profits, the reason why her name is on top of Forbes’ listing.
Portman’s first appearance in the movie scene was in the 1994 action film “Leon: The Professional,” playing the role as an orphan abducted by a hitman. Her mainstream success instigated in 1999, when she starred in the “Star Wars” prequel trilogy, as Padmé Amidala.
In 2013, she is scheduled to star the “Knight of Cups” by Terrence Malick. She is also set to appear in the sequel to the 2011 Hollywood blockbuster, “Thor.”
All these denominate her beautiful image and first-class talent will continue to prevail in the upcoming Hollywood films, giving her yet another chance to top future pertinent rankings released by Forbes magazine recently.

The 31 year old actress has decided to take a longer break from her career to focus on her son. We here at Natalie Portman Online wish Natalie and her family all the best.
“Natalie is being super choosy about her projects and taking more time off from acting,” a source told Us Weekly.
She’s set to appear on the 24th season opener of “The Simpsons” when it airs September 30th, and Natalie Portman maintained her share of the spotlight thanks in part to a feature in the October 2012 issue of InStyle UK magazine.
The 31-year-old actress partook in a wide-ranging interview in which she spoke about everything from her idol and family to staying fit and must-have make-up.
“I was a Vegan, but I went back to being a vegetarian during my pregnancy. I think you crave comfort foods [when you're pregnant] and I wanted dairy. I lean towards beans and lentils, but I love pasta and bread too. I was really into millefeuille for awhile. It’s flaky and creamy at the same time! Of course, if I feel like I’m packing on the pounds, those are the first foods to go.”
On her idol:
” I love Sofia Coppola’s full aesthetic. She presents herself in a ladylike fashion and has so much personality.”
