Natalie Portman was left squirming in her seat when she visited a German bar soon after shaving her head for her role in upcoming movie V FOR VENDETTA - because she attracted unwanted female attention.

The Garden State beauty intended to spend an innocent night watching the Eurovision Song Contest in Berlin, but she quickly realised she was in a gay bar and all eyes were on her.

She says, "One of the first places I went after I had shaved my head was a bar in Berlin to watch the Eurovision Song Contest.

"I'm sitting there and then I realised that it was a gay bar and my haircut was being very, er, shall we say 'appreciated' by quite a few of the girls there."
