Portman throws vanity to the wind

LONDON, March 9 (UPI) -- Actress Natalie Portman says she was not bothered by having to shave her head for her role in "V For Vendetta."

It was "kind of wonderful to throw vanity away for a bit," Portman, 24, told the Daily Mail at the London premiere of the political thriller.


"V For Vendetta" is based on the comic strips of the same name that became a cult novel in 1988. Portman stars as a woman who becomes involved in a futuristic terrorist attack on Britain's Houses of Parliament.

"Ultimately it's an action movie, it's very entertaining but after you leave you will have a lot to fight about," Portman told the newspaper.

The film, also starring John Hurt and Stephen Fry, comes out March 17.
