Natalie Portman surprised the cast on the set of her latest movie after she started speaking fluent German.
The 'Star Wars' actress stunned her co-workers when she revealed her word-perfect language skills on the Berlin set of forthcoming thriller, 'V For Vendetta'.
A source said: "Natalie chatted and ordered meals in German .The Germans on the crew really loved her."
Multi-lingual Natalie, who graduated from America's prestigious Harvard University two years ago, also speaks fluent French, Hebrew and Japanese.
Last month, the 23-year-old actress, who launched her Hollywood career aged just 11 in cult classic 'Leon', angered orthodox Jews after shooting a kissing scene in one of Jerusalem's holiest sites.
Worshippers circled the movie beauty - who was born in Israel and studied at Jerusalem's Hebrew University - after witnessing her film the romantic scene beside the sanctified Wailing Wall before forcing her to leave the area under a police escort.
The actress said afterwards: "We weren't thinking. We shouldn't have done it."
