Stars Discovered by Chance

13 of 18

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman was the ripe old age of 11 when a talent scout spotted her eating pizza in a Long Island restaurant. He signed her to a modeling contract, but Portman tired of it two years later and branched into acting at the age of 13 with an acclaimed role in "Leon." She went on to achieve global fame for her role as Queen Amidala in the "Star Wars" franchise and critical acclaim with her Oscar-winning performance in "Black Swan."-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
