Natalie Portman is playing teacher – and nor just for a film role. The 27-year-old has already ticked off acting and directing on her resume (she multitasks with both in upcoming flick New York, I Love You) and now she’s ready to share her skills with others via an online film school.Portman has launched www.makingof.com to give film fans and would-be industry bods the chance to learn about the movie-making process and receive direct advice from Tinsel Towns pros. In fact, her friends in high places means she’s already pulled in a few favours – the site features video interviews with directors Ron Howard and Michel Gondry as well as actors Jason Bateman, John Krasinski and Billy Bob Thornton.
Even those who don’t intend on heading in that career direction will find the behind-the-scenes interesting – but for those who want to learn from an expert, just try not to think about Portman’s role in Star Wars.
