Let's run through the best and worst sketches from the Natalie Portman hosted Saturday Night Live.

On her French husband Benjamin Millepied, she said, "My man dance but he's not a ballerino".

Not too long ago, the internet went into a frenzy upon realizing how much the two actresses resemble one another. "Yeah, he twinkle his toes, but he give me good D, though".

She also came out ready to take down anyone with something negative to say on the "Star Wars" prequels or her "Time's Up" campaign at this year's Golden Globes against gender discrimination in Hollywood.

In her latest rap, she boasts about drowning a doctor when her waters broke and snacking on Tide Pods. In the great tradition of unnecessary sequels, we submit to you that it is not. but it comes closer than you might expect, especially with that unexpected detour into Star Wars prequel-territory.

Natalie replies: "You can juggle these nuts".

The 36-year-old Oscar victor hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live and took part in a rap video, in which she rapped about what it's like to be her and poked fun at the criticism surrounding the Star Wars prequel trilogy, in which she played Queen Amidala / Padmé.

Honestly, we thought the whole thing couldn't get any better, then Natalie did a Stranger Things sketch and absolutely nailed her impression of Milli Bobby Brown as Eleven.

Other scenes included Portman dressing up as Jackie Kennedy in a sketch about First Ladies who claimed they were cheated on, and one where Portman plays a Nickelodeon show presenter who has lost her voice. "Say something fucking nice about Jar Jar Binks".

What an absolute legend.
