Subscribe to Natalie Portman alerts

Natalie Portman's ex-boyfriend Gael Garcia Bernal has gained a lot of attention for his drag queen role in the upcoming movie BAD EDUCATION - because he's said to resemble Julia Roberts.

The 25-year-old Mexican actor, who won a barrage of fans in the acclaimed movie Y Tu Mama Tambien, has employed his good looks for use as a cross-dresser - and critics have been astounded by how much he looks like Pretty Woman Roberts when he's in drag.

He says, "It's a great compliment. But I don't know how she is going to react."

While he didn't enjoy wearing thongs or waxing, Bernal admits he found the cross-dressing aspect of his role "liberating".

He adds, "If you were the opposite sex, what would you be? It's fun to play and explore that."

The movie, which has won acclaim around the world, will be released in America in November (04).
