Movie beauty NATALIE PORTMAN stunned a group of Japanese tourists recently - by returning their insults in their native language.

The Star Wars actress was enjoying a meal at a Los Angeles restaurant when she overheard the rude tourists making comments about her in Japanese.

But, the angry 22-year-old actress decided to enact revenge on the offensive group as she returned from the toilet, leaving them dumbstruck when she attacked them in their own language.

An insider says, "She gave them both barrels in Japanese. The whole table looked mortified."
