Natalie Portman quitting acting to start family?

The 29-year-old actress has spoken of her desire to emulate Hollywood icon Audrey Hepburn, who left her movie career to begin a family, reported Sun online.

"Audrey made some good choices in life... More and more I realise how unimportant it is to be in the history books or anything like that. Putting time and energy into your children, that's valuable," said Portman, who is engaged to choreographer Benjamin Millepied.
The actress has often spoken about the emotionally draining experience of filming 'Black Swan', in which she played a psychotic prima ballerina in one of the most demanding roles of her career.

Despite winning an Oscar for the role, Portman insisted it was a relief to begin work on her upcoming film, the more light-hearted 'Thor'.

"It probably delayed the onset of a total breakdown from the efforts of doing Black Swan, which is going to hit at any moment... We got nice long breaks and I got to read in my trailer which was very comfortable and has a bed. I could eat whenever I wanted and train whenever I felt like it".
