The latest cover story in Interview magazine poses an interesting question - between paparazzi photos, celeb gossip and stars' own Twitter updates - do we really know our movie stars, or just know where they drink their coffee? Beautiful actress Natalie Portman has been in the public eye for more than half her life, but as the interview suggests, we know only superficial details about the woman behind the roles in 'Star Wars' and 'Garden State.' To solve this problem, Interview enlisted the help of actor Jake Gyllenhaal, Portman's co-star in the upcoming film 'Brothers.' Read the entire, charmingly candid piece in the new issue of Interview, and check out the highlights and gorgeous photos below:

Natalie Portman in Interview Magazine

    Natalie Portman reveals her inner self to Interview magazine, admitting, "I'm far from fearless. I'm afraid of everything. But maybe when you're afraid of everything, it sort of seems like you're scared of nothing."

    On her job skills: "I can make chitchat, but not much else. I mean, I'd basically have trouble with any job that doesn't require me to wear silly clothes and talk in funny voices."

    On the bright side of the recession: "It's much easier to say that you're going to follow your passions when you're financially secure, but at least we can take solace in the fact that we now have the time to pursue the things that we really want to pursue because now the option of doing things just for the money isn't necessarily there."
