Natalie Portman on Cannes experience: Extremely honored to be part of this jury. Obviously Cannes represents the height of cinema from all around the world. It’s an incredible opportunity to get to see so many films, from so many different countries…. It’s a great pressure. It’s all these great films that we have to judge and to be in the position of a judge is very humbling, because all the filmmakers are so incredible and who am I to say something, but I will.
