Natalie Portman would load up a gun for ‘Professional 2’ As Nataile Portman generates Oscar buzz as an obsessed ballerina in “Black Swan,” the actress yearns to return to her roots.

Portman says that she’d return to the role that made her in Hollywood at the age of 12, Mathilda, in Luc Besson’s sequel to “the Professional,” entitled “Leon” in France.

The one clause in her contract: Besson needs to direct. Apparently, the director has a script, but won’t helm. In terms of high-octane actioners which made Besson famous, he’s left the bulk of them to other helmers, i.e. the “Taxi” and “Transporter” films, and instead took a producer role on such fare.

Speaking to MTV, Portman said: “I have never read it because Luc won’t direct it himself, and so I’m only interested if he [directs].

“I told him if he would do it himself, I would do it in two seconds. But he won’t, so…”

    This is would be a perfect movie for her.I’m sorry for saying this,but Natalie Portman is a true “*****” just like her friend Julia Roberts,I have seen her 3 times in the last 7 years and in each of them she never give the chance to the fans to have a picture with her,she “only” give some “autographs” to “some fans” and only in “HER” movie premieres,”Not”in other premieres,and when she is in the street or in the airport ,she always look down,just like her fellow “The Queen” Julia Roberts.This is really bad,can you imagine what would happen if she win the Oscar?,Not even Tom Cruise,Will Smith or Meryl Streep are like that;I have meet them many times over the years.I really hope that Natalie change that “Attitude” for all her true fans, and I post this comments, not to degrading or offense Natalie,I love Natalie,but she have to give a little more respect to the fans,specially to little kids.
