Natalie Portman was only 10 years old when she was discovered by a modeling agent in a pizza parlor [source: Levy]. Even though she grew up before our eyes, Portman was spared that awkward stage in which teens' skin becomes an outward manifestation of their inner angst and turmoil. Instead, Portman's complexion has remained lovely throughout her Hollywood career. Portman's beauty may be too overwhelming, though -- when Slate reviewed Portman's 2009 film "Brothers," critic Dana Stevens alleged that Portman's looks can overwhelm her acting ability [source: Graham]. For now, the sin of being too beautiful doesn't seem to be hurting Portman's career, and thanks to the film "V for Vendetta," for which Portman shaved her head, we know that her lovely skin extends all the way to her exposed scalp.
