Natalie Portman is currently starring in the very dark, very adult film, Black Swan. But flashback to 1996, and she was a bright-eyed actress playing a wise-beyond-her-years preteen named Marty in Beautiful Girls. Even though Portman was still relatively unknown at the time, I remember being completely charmed by her performance in the film. In one of my favorite scenes, Marty suggests to Will (Timothy Hutton), that they get together — five years down the road, of course. Is her May-December flirtation wrong? Sure, but it's also kind of sweet. Watch the clip again.
