Jackie hit theaters on Friday and follows the celebrated first lady during her tenure in the White House and the days surrounding John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination. The Oscar winner recently opened up to ET about her excitement with regard to the film's awards season potential.
"It's obviously flattering to have positive response to the film because that's what you want when you're making a film," Portman said. "To have audiences relate to something emotionally and be moved by it and [have it] connect with people. That's what you dream about when you're making something."
Portman, who won the Best Actress Oscar in 2011 for Black Swan when she was expecting her first child, admitted that babies very well might be her lucky charm: "I think they're good luck charms in life. They're the best things, the best main miracles."
