Rolling Stone: 20 June 2002, Vol. 1, Iss. 898, pg. 52-58, by: Chris Heath, "The Private Life of Natalie Portman"
Of her religion, Portman says,
"I'm much more like the product of a doctor than I am a Jew." She is uncomfortable about the concept of the afterlife. "I don't believe in that. I believe this is it, and I believe it's the best way to live."
