Award-winning actress Natalie Portman has insisted she doesn't "know anything" about a potential 'Star Wars' return

Natalie Portman doesn't "know anything" about a potential 'Star Wars' return.

The Academy Award-winning actress – who played Padme Amidala in Episodes I to III of the sci-fi saga – has been linked with a return to the sci-fi franchise in 'Star Wars: Episode IX', but at the moment, Natalie hasn't heard anything about a potential return.

Asked about the rumours of her returning to 'Star Wars', Natalie admitted: "Oh really? I don't know anything about that. I'm guessing that's not true because I don't know about it yet."

Despite playing a central role in the 'Star Wars' films, Natalie previously admitted she has mixed feelings about her children seeing her in the movies.

The 37-year-old actress – who has kids Aleph, seven, and Amalia, who was born in February 2017, with her husband Benjamin Millepied – confessed she was torn about the prospect of her kids seeing her in the franchise.

Explaining her concerns, Natalie said: "It's kind of a shame.

"You know, when I made it, I was like, 'This is going to be the coolest thing. One day when I have kids, I can show them.' And boys, of course, are obsessed with it and know all about it before they've seen it. [But] I realised, I die in the movies. I feel like it's kind of a scary thing to show your kid."

Emperor Palpatine (McDiarmid) is back and building an army, so Rey (Ridley), Poe (Isaac), Finn (Boyega) and the gang go up against him and Kylo Ren (Driver). The internal and external battle of Ridley and Driver is the strongest element, with magnetic chemistry, but elsewhere it’s disappointing fan service, a film that…
