20 Celebrities Reveal How They Got Famous
Natalie Portman booked her first feature when she was 11 years old, plucked from a group of over 2,000 auditioners, but her celebrity big break came two years earlier when she was discovered in a pizza shop. Vogue tells the story of how a Revlon scout approached her in a pizza parlor while she was on vacation. Natalie had already been bitten by the acting bug, much to the chagrin of her parents, so when the scout asked her if she would be interested in modeling, Natalie responded by asking if she could instead be put in touch with an acting agent. Even in her formative years, Natalie understood the power of asking for what you want.
