Britney and Justin Make Peace
19 December 2002
Former pop couple Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears have finally stopped feuding following their acrimonious break up and become friends again. Spears and 'N Sync hunk Timberlake, both 21, have been at loggerheads since their split earlier this year, but on Friday night at New York's Suite 16 the pair decided to make peace. A fellow reveler tells showbiz website Page Six, "Britney was there first with a couple of girlfriends. When Justin walked in with two guys, they sat at a separate table. But he went over and kissed Britney and talked for a bit." But relations between the pop pair seem to have a long way to go until they're as good as they once were - on Saturday, Timberlake skipped Spears' late 21st birthday party at Tan Da, which was attended by Star Wars stunner Natalie Portman. He opted instead to hit the Vip room at Flow, where he grabbed a cordless mic and sang over the music for nearly an hour and a half.

Gyllenhaal Denies Portman Romance
2nd October 2002
Rising stars Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal are still single - they're not dating according to the man himself. The 21-year old The Good Girl actor is fed up with reports he is dating the Star Wars beauty and wants to set the record straight. He insists, "We're just friends. You know, when you sit next to someone while you're out to dinner with friends and reporters are there, 'sitting next to each other' becomes 'snogging' very quickly. She's a buddy."

Natalie Portman Dates Comic For A Week

Funnyman Fallon, who has been romantically linked with Winona Ryder recently, explains in a series of hilarious TV commercial that he had three conditions for hosting the show on August 29 - and dating Queen Amidala was one. The comic, a regular on America's Saturday Night Live, also asked for a signed photograph of Jesus Christ and a talking punk dog. In the hilarious ads, a bored Portman asks Fallon, "Can I go now?" to which he responds, "You've got four more days, little lady," and then tells his mohawked pooch, "She's mean, she's an actress."

Portman's Lesbian Lust
24th June 2002
Sensual Star Wars babe Natalie Portman has feelings for other women. The stunning actress who plays Senator Amildala in Attack Of The Clones announced that, although she has never explored her lesbian fantasies, she would not rule it out. The sexy stunner, who once dated Moby, claimed that although her personality is more compatible with men she wouldn't want to close herself off to girl only action. She says, "I've never dated a woman or anything like it. But I think it's much more the person that you fall in love with and why would you close yourself off to 50-per-cent of people?"

Portman's Rocker Beau
17th June 2002
Star Wars beauty Natalie Portman has found love with a Los Angeles rocker. The Israeli-born actress has reportedly started dating Adam Levine, the frontman of Maroon 5.

31st May 2002
Rock heiress and MTV star Kelly Osbourne will sing live for the first time at this weekend's MTV Movie Awards. The daughter of former Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne has become a cult figure among fans since the MTV documentary about the wacky family first aired earlier this year. The pink-haired 17-year-old recently announced she is releasing a cover version of Madonna's hit record "Papa Don't Preach."

Natalie Portman's Israeli Dreams
29th May 2002
Actress Natalie Portman is determined to find a home in her native Jerusalem, Israel, as soon as political strife in the Middle East dies down. The Jewish star admits she's deeply troubled by ongoing violence in her homeland, but it's not putting her off her dream of owning a home there one day. She says, "I really love the States, but my heart's in Jerusalem. That's where I feel at home. Anytime anything happens to anyone there, it's like a limb's been ripped off. I'm very protective of Israel, obviously, but I'm more protective of humanity than of any of my own personal desires."

Christensen: I'm Not Gay
7th May 2002
Star Wars actor Hayden Christensen has lost himself a potentially devoted fanbase by laughing off suggestions that he's gay. A leading American gay magazine declared Christensen to be "definitely gay", and Hayden's more amused than annoyed at the speculation. He says, "It's hilarious. I'm not gay. It's amazing how much people will speculate if they haven't actual information to draw from, they just make up whatever they feel is appropriate. "That's cool. As long as the people I know and care about know the truth then everyone else's opinion doesn't really matter." Cast and crew on the set of the upcoming Attack Of The Clones film know where the 20-year-old's tastes lie - he often forced extra takes of his kissing scenes with stunning co-star Natalie Portman by turning to the camera grinning and flashing a thumbs-up. He laughs, "They would be like, 'You have to stop doing that Hayden! Now we have to do the whole scene again.' I'd be like, 'Fine'."

Portman Proud Of Turning Down Lolita
6th May 2002
Not having sex with Jeremy Irons is the best decision Stars Wars actress Natalie Portman ever made. Portman turned down the title role in 1997's Lolita remake opposite Oscar-winner Irons, leaving the way open for Dominique Swain. She explains, "It was widely reported that my parents were over-protective prudes. They're not - they just didn't want to see their 14-year-old daughter having sex with Jeremy Irons. "I think I would have been pretty upset to be in a sex scene at 14, before I'd even experienced it in real life. That's not something that I should have had to deal with when I was growing up and I'm very lucky that I didn't."

Natalie Portman: "I'm No Draft Dodger"
2nd May 2002
Stunning actress Natalie Portman denies she has dodged military draft in her country of birth Israel. The Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones beauty, 20, has quashed rumors that she dodged out of serving in the Israeli army. She says, "That's so ridiculous and I'm just stupid... That's pretty much it. Because I was born in Israel, every time I visit I have to get a note from the army that says I'm exempt. I thought that meant that I was drafted but that I got out of it, so I said in passing in some stupid interview, 'Yeah, I dodged the draft.' Then it causes this controversy but it turns out you don't even get drafted unless you live in Israel, and I left when I was three. So clearly they weren't wanting me in their army unless I wanted to volunteer. So I don't know. It created a controversy and I'm dumb and I'm corrected now."

Portman Puts Pen To Paper For Israel
23rd April 2002
Star Wars beauty Natalie Portman Has gotten involved in an earth- based conflict - she's spoken out to defend Israel from allegations of racism. The hot young actress, who was born in the beleaguered country, has fired off a furious letter to The Harvard Crimson, the student newspaper of the prestigious university she attends. Portman was responding to an article in the rag by fellow undergraduate Faisal Chaudhry. The student described Israeli activity on the disputer West Bank as "racist colonial occupation, in which white Israeli soldiers destroy refugee camps of the brown people they have dispossessed for decades". Portman's eloquent reply reads, "What he says is distortion, as most Israelis and Palestinians are indistinguishable physically. The Israeli government is composed of a great number of Sephardic Jews, many of whom originate from Arab counties. The minister of defence, the minister of finance and the president of Israel are all, in fact, 'brown'. On this week's Newsweek cover, the 18-year-old female Palestinian suicide bomber and her 17-year-old female Israeli victim could easily pass for twins."

In Attack Of The Clones
8th February 2002
Princess Leia's famous sexy bun hairdo is set to make a comeback in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack Of The Clones. Star Wars creator George Lucas wasn't surprised when Carrie Fisher's hairstyle in the original sci-fi trilogy caused such a stir, and he hopes Natalie Portman's image as Leia's mother Queen Amidala is met with the same awe. But in a recent interview with Lucas for her Conversations From The Edge talk show, Fisher admits that hairdo almost didn't happen. She tells Lucas, "You tortured me with that hairstyle and I was too frightened that you were going to fire me because of the 10 pounds I'd put on that I went with it." Lucas retorts, "That hairdo was designed to be noticed and it was. That was the point. Fans will see how it started out in the new film. Amidala wears that hairstyle done the way it was originally intended, but it ended up being modified and brought down and becoming more braids. Yours became smaller and smaller. Just wait until you see hers - they're like two giant horns on the side of her head." Fisher also used the interview to challenge the movie maker about the sadomasochistic connections to Star Wars - Leia's gold bikini look as a slave in Return Of The Jedi has become a standard at sex parties. Lucas says, "I may have been naive but I missed that whole S&M angle on the whole thing. There was a little metal work to the suit but it was appropriate for the time period."
