Birth Place: Jerusalem, Israel
Career Start: Leon
The only child of a doctor father (from Israel) and an artist mother (from Cincinnati, Ohio), who also acts as Natalie’s agent. She left Israel for Washington, D.C., when she was still very young. After a few more moves, her family finally settled in New York, where she still lives to this day. She graduated with honors, and her academic achievements allowed her to attend Harvard.She was discovered by an agent in a pizza parlor at the age of 11. She was pushed towards a career in modeling but she decided that she would rather pursue a career in acting. She was featured in many live performances, but she made her powerful film debut in the movie Leon: The Professional (1994) (aka “Léon”). Following this role Natalie won roles in such films as Heat (1995), Beautiful Girls (1996), and Mars Attacks! (1996).
Not only do Natalie and I share a name but she is also in the petite celeb club just as Mila, who played opposite of her in Black Swan. Natalie is genuinely beautiful and talented. I enjoyed watching her in Leon and her performance in V for Vendetta was phenomenal. She also participates in a lot of charity work in her spare time. Even though she is petite she dresses in the best designer wear and is also the Miss Dior girl who represents their perfumes. I admire her for her talent, education, and her beauty. She is an insperation to all the petite women out there. Anything is possible!
