Guess who’s got a royal rendezvous on her Hollywood highlight reel? None other than the fabulous Natalie Portman, and oh boy, does she have a tale to tell about her encounter with the one and only Prince Charles.
Picture this: It’s 1999, and Natalie is strutting her stuff at the London premiere of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Who should grace her with his royal presence? None other than Prince Charles himself. Talk about a plot twist fit for a Hollywood blockbuster!
So, there they are, Natalie and the Prince, rubbing shoulders at a star-studded event. Fast forward to a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, where Natalie spills the intergalactic tea on the hilarious exchange that went down.
Prince Charles, in all his regal glory, turns to Natalie and hits her with the burning question of the century: “Were you in the originals?” Cue the awkward silence. Natalie, barely holding back laughter, responds with the wisdom of an 18-year-old, “I’m 18!” Well, color us amused, Your Highness.
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the fact that Natalie Portman, the queen of the galaxy, was merely a toddler when the OG Star Wars movie, Return of the Jedi, hit the big screen. Prince Charles, you sly dog, trying to uncover Hollywood secrets from a time when Natalie was still mastering the art of tying shoelaces.
Despite the generation gap and a slight misfire on the Star Wars trivia, Prince Charles proved to be a good sport. Natalie assures us that he was “very friendly.” We can only imagine the royal chuckles behind closed palace doors after that encounter.
A royal meet-cute with a side of sci-fi confusion. Natalie Portman and Prince Charles: a duo destined for the history books, or at least the highlight reel of hilariously awkward celebrity encounters. May the laughter be with you!
