Natalie Portman may run for office when she gets “too ugly” for Hollywood

Natalie PortmanNatalie Portman has said she may run for office when she gets "too ugly" for Hollywood.

The Star Wars actress said she would consider going into politics if she stops making movies.

She said: "It's not a bad idea. I'm not going to be getting parts in the next five to 10 years - I'll be over the hill. [Laughs.]

"Maybe I can go into politics once I'm too ugly for Hollywood."

Portman, 26, can currently be seen on screen opposite Scarlett Johansson in historical drama, The Other Boleyn Girl.

The Israeli-born star also said she felt sorry for Tinseltown's young starlets, whose names are constantly making the headlines.

She told US magazine Time: "You're never going to change the fact that it's hard for some people to deal with their lives, but you can change your reaction.

"Give them their space and privacy. The worst thing about our society is that it revels in people's difficult times."

And asked if she thought celebrities should use their stardom to influence voters, she replied: "Sure. People can listen to a host of influences and still make their own decisions.

"I'm always interested to hear who the people I respect are voting for."
