Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a huge success in the box office, and a lot of people all over the world have seen it. It feels like everyone has seen it; everyone, except the mother of Luke and Leia.

Natalie Portman, the actress who played Padme Amidala in George Lucas' prequel trilogy, hasn't the new film, she admitted on Good Morning America:

"I haven't been able to see it yet. I've heard it's amazing and it's so nice that it's sort of this continuing part of everyone's shared cultural knowledge."
Despite the success of the prequel trilogy, Portman said that she struggled to land another serious movie role after the end of the trilogy.

"Star Wars had come out around the time of Seagull, and everyone thought I was a horrible actress," she told New York magazine in 2014. "I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade, and no director wanted to work with me."

I would love to see Natalie Portman as a Force Ghost in the future Star Wars films. Her performance may not be stellar in the prequel trilogy, but she was brilliant in Black Swan.
