The Star Wars beauty has been busy promoting her new movie Brothers, and recently wrapped filming on period comedy Your Highness with James Franco.

Portman went straight back to work with director Darren Aronofsky for Black Swan, which she is currently shooting, and she's then set to join Robert De Niro and director Kenneth Branagh in the comic-book adaptation of Thor.

The 28 year old has also just signed on to tackle Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's book which adds flesh-eating monsters to Jane Austin's period novel.

And that's not all - she recently produced her first movie, Hesher, and adapted Amos Oz's novel A Tale of Love and Darkness for the big screen, which she hopes to also direct.

The ambitious actress admits she's struggling to juggle all the different projects and maybe shouldn't have committed herself to so much work.

She tells Marie Claire magazine, "I overdid it. It was like an all-you-can-eat buffet, and I was like, 'I'm hungry!' And now I'm like, 'Oh, s**t!'

"I tend to get overambitious with what I can do."
