Actress Natalie Portman stopped by Good Morning America Wednesday where she revealed that she hasn’t seen the mega hit, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

“I haven’t been able to see it yet,” she said, adding that she’s only heard positive reviews about the film. “I’ve heard it’s amazing and it’s so nice that it’s sort of this continuing part of everyone’s shared cultural knowledge.”

The Star Wars veteran played Naboo monarch Padmé Amidala, the mother of Luke and Leia, in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, starting with Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace.

The actress also confessed she couldn’t land a leading role after the success of Episode I. 

“Star Wars had come out around the time of Seagull, and everyone thought I was a horrible actress,” she told New York magazine in 2014. “I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade, and no director wanted to work with me.”

Portman reunited with her fellow Star Wars alumni, Joel Edgerton and Ewan McGregor, in the upcoming film Jane Got a Gun.

“The three of us sort of had a reunion,” she said. “It was nice that we all had that familiarity to start off with.”
