The way you make Meesah feel?

Jar Jar Binks is considered one of film's most disliked characters of all time. But the clumsy, babbling Gugan in the Star Wars prequel trilogy could have been way more appealing — because the character was almost played by Michael Jackson!

Ahmed Best, the actor who played Binks, revealed that the King of Pop expressed interest in playing the creature using prosthetics and makeup like in his Thriller video, but George Lucas shot down the idea!

Portman explained how she initially felt "woefully unprepared" for the film's role but persevered on regardless, saying:

"The point is, if I had known my own limitations, I never would have taken the risk. And the risk led to one of my greatest personal and professional achievements."

Woot! We're so glad the actress took on the role — she wouldn't have won the Oscar, met her now husband, or even had her adorable son!!

All of the movie roles go to Natalie Portman!

Just last week, it was announced that the 33-year-old was cast for the role of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the film, On The Basis of Sex!

Now, the Oscar winner is set to play another historical figure — Jackie Kennedy for the upcoming biopic Jackie!

[ Related: Natalie Portman Can't Quite Recall Exactly Where She Put Her Oscar… ]

The story will follow the iconic first lady right after the assassination of her husband, President John. F. Kennedy. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky is set to produce the film.

This isn't the first time Jackie-O will be portrayed on the big screen. Katie Holmes played her in the miniseries The Kennedys and Minka Kelly did a brief but heartbreaking portrayal in The Butler.

We think that Portman is an excellent choice to play the first lady at the time when she lost the love of her life but won the love of a nation!

Do U think the actress is a good choice for the role?

Wait, Natalie Portman is set to play an 82-year-old woman?!

On Friday, it was reported that Natalie will portray Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the film, On The Basis of Sex.

The film will follow Ruth's illustrious career in securing equal rights for women.

Considering Portman is a dedicated feminist herself, we can understand why she was chosen for the role!!

One thing we're curious about, however, is how the actress will pull off Ginsburg's mature look!

Well, given Nat's superb acting skills, we bet she'll be able to rock the role despite the age difference!! She did win an Oscar, after all.

So, do YOU think Natalie is a good fit for the role?
