Forbes: Natalie Portman is Hollywood’s most bankable

Natalie Portman is the queen of bank, according to Forbes, who listed her as the top celebrity who gives the best bang for the buck in box office returns.

The longtime acclaimed Jewish actress cashed in the standings with her performance in Darren Aronofsky’s 2010 Oscar-winning thriller, Black Swan. Portman played a deranged ballerina in the indie film, which was made with $13 million and grossed $329 million at the box office.

Forbes determined their choices on the most bankable list based on the last three films of each actor, comparing the salary paid to the star based on box office results to the actual cost of the film– and Portman certainly raked it in with her Black Swan performance.

Other listed actors on the Forbes list included Kristen Stewart, based on her role in “Twilight” and “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Daniel Radcliffe for his performances in the “Harry Potter” franchise, and Shia LeBeouf, for the “Transformer”s movies.
