Natalie Portman proudly proclaimed that her parents taught her “to work my hardest” and to “never be an asshole” as she accepted her award for Outstanding Performance for a Female Actor in a Leading Role, at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this past Sunday. The mommy to be is on a winning streak and has racked up numerous accolades for her role as the ballerina Nina Sayers in the psychological thriller BLACK SWAN, and her next stop is the Oscars.
