Jake Gyllenhaal: Natalie Portman "Our Generation's Audrey Hepburn"

| by Oh The Scandal

Natalie Portman certainly is, and deservedly so, Hollywood’s golden girl at the moment. Even her ex Jake Gyllenhaal is in on the love-in.

Gyllenhaal, who dated Portman in 2006, sang his ex’s praises as he handed her the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Sunday.

“Natalie is the Audrey Hepburn of our generation,” said Gyllenhaal as he handed her the award, reports “She is elegant, graceful, has amazing eyebrows…is talented, really short, funny, smart, dedicated, incredibly kind.”

At which point he switched to teasing the Black Swan star.

“She’s a vegan, which makes it really frustrating when you’re picking a place to eat,” he joked. “She’s also recently announced that she’s going to be a mom, and her child will probably need therapy after seeing Black Swan.”

Have you seen Black Swan yet? Do it, Portman’s fantastic in it – a brilliant and beguiling performance.
