Natalie Portman revealed on Monday that then-Prince Charles during the Phantom Menace premiere in London asked if she was in the original Star Wars film trilogy.

The 42-year-old actress shared the story while appearing as a guest on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Bravo.

Andy, 55, asked Natalie if she remembered her interactions with 'the royals' at the Phantom Menace premiere in 1999 in London.

'A little bit,' Natalie said. 'I remember Prince Charles asked me, he was then Prince Charles, if I was in the originals.'

Natalie laughed at the memory of the royal codger.

'I was like, I'm 18,' Natalie said. 'But he was very friendly.'

The Star Wars subject came up after a viewer asked if there had been any discussion about her reprising her role as Padmé Amidala after Hayden Christensen, 42, returned to play Anakin Skywalker on the Disney+ series Ahsoka.

'No, there have not been,' Natalie said. 'No one has asked me, but I'm open to it.'

Natalie appeared on the show along with Julianne Moore, 63, to promote their new movie May December. In the movie, Natalie plays a TV actress studying to play Julianne's character who was inspired by the story of Mary Kay Letourneau, the teacher who fell in love with her much younger student.

Cory Michael Smith, 37, who plays Julianne's son in the movie, served as the bartender on WWHL.

'I loved, loved, loved, the movie,' Andy told them. 'It is so wonderful. Congratulations to both of you.'

Andy asked Julianne who was her first celebrity crush.

'Robert Redford,' Julianne said.

'Swayze,' Natalie said, referencing the late Patrick Swayze.

Andy asked them what acting performances they saw at a young age that motivated them to become actors themselves.

'It was Meryl Streep,' Julianne said. 'In the mini-series she did about the Holocaust.'

'Julianne in Safe,' Natalie said. 'I wasn't that young, I was already an adult when I saw it, but it was really important to me.'

Julianne said Safe was her first movie working with Todd Haynes and they have made five films together, including May December.

Andy asked them to name their first concert.

'Cheap Trick,' Julianne said.

'Debbie Gibson,' Natalie said.
