Star Wars beauty Natalie Portman is a single woman again - after ditching hunky boyfriend Gael Garcia Bernal.

The stunning 22-year-old actress has been dating the BAD EDUCATION star since meeting him at a post-OSCAR party in 2003 but friends say cracks started appearing in the romance a few weeks ago.

According to British newspaper The Sun, the final straw was when Portman discovered her beau had opted to take his parents to the Cannes Film Festival this week (ends21MAY04) instead of her.

Portman's previous boyfriends include Moby and Lukas Haas.
