What's the secret to Natalie Portman staying normal despite her early start in Hollywood? She says it's her parents positive influence that hs kept her from following paths like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.

According to the Digital Spy:

The actress was just 12 when she played an orphan taken in by a hitman in hit film Leon, but said her parents had stopped her going off the rails.

She told Reveal: "It's really, really hard to grow up being seen as sexy to people. The first movie that I ever did, Leon, was considered to be a very sexual film. So my parents really shielded me from the weirdos of the world.

"While I was growing up they were very protective - appropriately so. They were so concerned about me getting into acting because they had this impression - and I feel they're right - that there is a lot of stuff kids shouldn't be exposed to at such a young age."
