While Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman is known for notable roles in films like Black Swan, V for Vendetta and Jackie, the 42-year-old actress recently revealed there is one thing in particular she’ll never do for a role.

“Show my boobs,” she said with a laugh while on The Drew Barrymore Show earlier this week. “Is that really prude? I’m just always like, ‘I don’t want my kids to see pictures online.’”

Portman and her husband, dancer Benjamin Millepied, share 12-year-old Aleph and 6-year-old Amalia. In the Instagram snippet from the talk show posted on Dec. 5, Barrymore quipped that she was thrilled there was no social media back when she famously flashed the host on an episode of The Dave Letterman Show in 1995.

“Drew is the best friend we all need and want,” one fan commented.

“Love, love , love this clip!” someone else added.

“Aw!! 2 of my favorite humans!!!!!!!! 😍😍,” another user gushed.

Portman, who stars in the film May December, told People that she often selects roles these days that she thinks will impress her two children. The Angel FC co-founder played Mighty Thor in last year’s Thor: Love and Thunder opposite Chris Hemsworth, which was clearly a hit with her kiddos.

“A large part of my decision-making right now is what can I do to impress my kids,” she told the outlet. “Getting to be on the Thor set and fly around with stuntmen was very cool for them.”
