New Crush

Tonight's "Inside The Actor's Studio" was with Natalie Portman. I have always really liked her work. I didn't even realize that she played the little girl in "The Professional." I completely fell in love with her after seeing "Garden State." During the show I found her to be very intelligent, genuine and funny. But the clicher was when James Lipton asked her, "If there really is heaven what do you hope God says to you when you reach the pearly gates?"
She replied that she wants to belive that she does good things not just to reach heaven. And that she believes if people keep heaven in mind as their motivation for doing good, it turns it into something purely selfish.
I have said this people on many occasions. In fact I was known for debating that point in my college religion classes.
I luuuuuurv her.
