Public opinion can make or break an actress, and after Natalie Portman's “Star Wars” prequels were critically panned, she found it hard to get her ducks in a row.
The “Garden State” gal told New York magazine that late director Mike Nichols helped her figure things out and essentially gave her another chance at a longstanding career in Tinseltown. Natalie explained, "'Star Wars' had come out around the time of 'Seagull,' and everyone thought I was a horrible actress. I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade, and no director wanted to work with me. Mike wrote a letter to Anthony Minghella and said, 'Put her in Cold Mountain, I vouch for her.'"
