Natalie Portman Is Getting Her First Christmas Tree — and Fulfilling ‘Every Jew’s Secret Wish’
On “The Tonight Show” last night, Natalie Portman filled in Jimmy Fallon on her plans for this year’s overlapping Christmas and Hanukkah, a calendar coincidence Portman called “really nice.” As she told Fallon, her family celebrates Christmas with her in-laws and Hanukkah with her side of the family. This year, it’s going to be one big Portman-Millipied-clan celebration, and Portman’s parents okayed getting a tree, to the surprise and delight of their daughter.
“It’s kind of every Jew’s like secret wish to have a Christmas tree,” she said.
