The charmed life of Natalie Portman just got even more charmed. Portman's just signed on to be the face of Parfums Christian Dior—the latest in a long line of A-list starlets that's included Sharon Stone, Charlize Theron, and Monica Bellucci. This is Portman's first fragrance or cosmetics campaign. Last year, she told E! she wouldn't do one: "I don't have a problem with making money, but I don't believe in doing something you don't believe in to make money, like a makeup campaign or something like that," she said. We're guessing Dior's price was right—a paycheck can make a believer out of just about anyone. [WWD]
