Israeli-born actress Natalie Portman admires Steven Spielberg for making Oscar-nominated movie Munich, but admits she doesn't "agree with half" of the film.

The beauty was intrigued to watch fellow Jew Spielberg's depiction of Israel's secret service Mossad exerting revenge following the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Germany.

Portman tells US magazine Entertainment Weekly, "(I don't) agree with half of what's in Munich, but political film-making is about putting something out there that people aren't going to like."

The Star Wars actress is preparing to cause similar controversy with her forthcoming movie V For Vendetta, which focuses on a terrorist plot to blow up London's Houses Of Parliament.

Portman explains, "Some people (will be) like, 'This is an anti-fascism movie!' and some like, 'This is Iraq!'"
