Natalie Portman is the latest cover girl for Harper’s Bazzar Magazine. Not only did she pose for these stunning pictures, but the Oscar winning actress also opened up about Israel and Judaism.

On Israel and the Middle East she said, “I get asked so many questions about the Middle East, and I’m like ‘Can you please just ask me about my dress? Let’s just talk about the dress!’”

“It’s a very strange place to be from. ( Portman was born in Israel) When you say, ‘I’m from Israel, ’ everyone wants to have a 10-hour political conversation. Everyone has a very strong, passionate opinion about it. But I’m grateful for it. I had so many friends who asked when we were younger, ‘Who am I? What’s my identity?’ I never questioned my identity.”

On Judaism: “The power of words is at the center of Judaism, and the creating of a people through storytelling. So I wanted to show the birth of this writer as he relates to his mother.”
