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!!

Check out Nat's speech in full (below)!

Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt and Natalie Portman at Cannes.

Nobody would dare to turn this trio away, even if they had on Uggs!

But Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, and Emily Blunt happened to be wearing long gowns that covered their feet at the premiere of Sicario on Tuesday, so we wouldn't know anyway.

Yet we secretly hope some of them wore flip flops just to mess with the Cannes Film Festival organizers! Ha!

Regardless of footwear, all three women were the epitome of glamour!

With her delicate frame and big doe eyes, Natalie was like a wood nymph in a jade green Lanvin gown with V-neckline and loosely tied sash around her waist.

Cate was as queenly as ever in a STUNNING Armani Privé gown with beaded embellishments and a dramatic bow detail — she's too good for this world!

Finally, Emily hit the red carpet in a Stella McCartney fully beaded, long-sleeved gown that looked glued to her gorgeous figure!

Who's your fave???

Natalie Portman and Naomi Watts find new ways to wear the LBD during Cannes!

Don't you just love Cannes??

Natalie Portman and Naomi Watts always manage to wear something different and exciting!

The brunette beauty arrived the A Tale Of Love And Darkness photo call on Sunday in a semi-sheer Rodarte dress showing off her little black panties!

It's not an easy look to pull off, but she does so with ease thanks to a chic pair of Dior sandals and perfect updo!

But not everything was going so well for Naomi just the day earlier.

A ruffled, mixed print Peter Pilotto frock and Jimmy Choo sandals graced the starlet at the Sea Of Trees photo call on Saturday, but we're not sure it was very Cannes-worthy.

The whole ensem feels kind of thrown together, don't U think??

Better luck next time, girlie!

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?

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?

Don't tell the Academy!

Natalie Portman may have impressed the movie world enough to win the Oscar for Best Actress back in 2010, but she doesn't seem to really care about that anymore.

That's because the Black Swan actress doesn't even know where the statuette is!

In a recent interview, the 33-year-old admitted that she doesn't feel comfortable admiring her win, saying:
