Natalie Portman is known for many things, but being a great impressionist is not one of them (she’s not shy about admitting this) — which makes her transformation into Jackie Kennedy in the new film Jackie all the more impressive.

She also finally answers the million-dollar question: Which Star Wars film will she show her children first?
