In 2005, Portman received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture for the drama Closer. She played leading roles in the historical dramas Goya’s Ghosts (2006) and The Other Boleyn Girl (2008). in May 2008, she served as the youngest member of the 61st Annual Cannes Film Festival jury. She is the only child of Shelley (née Stevens), an American homemaker who works as Portman’s agent, and Avner Hershlag, an Israeli citizen who is a fertility specialist and gynecologist. Portman’s maternal ancestors were Jewish immigrants to the United States, from Austria and Russia (her mother’s family had changed their surname from “Edelstein” to “Stevens”). “I don’t care if ruins my career,” she told the New York Post. “I’d rather be smart than a movie star.” At Harvard, Portman was Alan Dershowitz’s research assistant.
