London, Feb 6 (ANI): Oscar nominee Natalie Portman says that she feels like an 'old hag', because she has been acting for almost two decades.
After working tirelessly for the last 20 years, the 'Black Swan' star has been lauded for her role as a deranged dancer in the ballet thriller, winning several honours and becoming favourite to walk away with the Best Actress Academy Award later this month (Feb11).
And the actress admits she's struggling to cope with all the sudden acclaim because she's been around for so long.
"I made my first movie when I was 11. I'm an old hag. I guess it's pretty common with actors, to be doing this for 18 years, but it's extreme," The Daily Star quoted her as telling the Los Angeles Times.
"I feel like I'm on another planet or something right now. It's not quite sinking in. I feel really lucky. It's something that's completely wonderful, and I have a very definite goal I'm working toward with that," she added. (ANI)
