Natalie Portman, the actress that has been working in the industry for two decades and has shared the screen with some of Hollywood’s finest, admits that one person specifically makes her starstruck… ‘Dirty Dancing’s’ Jennifer Grey.

While speaking with British Elle for the upcoming November issue, Portman explains that she “freaks out” whenever she runs into Grey at the synagogue in which they are both members.

Yes [I've met Jennifer]. We go to temple together. And I freak out every time I see her - I'm such a nerd!" she admits.

"She kind of gets the 'polite eyes' when she comes, because she knows I'm going to jump on her. I wish I weren't as nervous as I am around her. I can't get over it."

So what do Portman and Grey talk about whenever they bump into each other? ‘Dirty Dancing’ of course.

"Of course [we talk about Dirty Dancing]! I can't talk about it too much, or I'll start getting teary…There are other movies I love, but no other movie that I have watched over and over."
