It's been almost 12 years since Natalie Portman rapped on SNL, satirizing her own good girl persona and assaulting Chris Parnell in the process. This new video opens with SNL regular Beck Bennett telling her that he heard that things got a little out of control when she was last on the show.

The Oscar-winning actress first hosted the TV programme in 2006, presenting a different side to her clean cut persona.

"I was going through a really weird time then", the Hollywood star said this time around.

The music video included a birthing sequence and Portman in her Queen Amidala costume from the Star Wars prequels, threatening someone with a gun.

After some speculation - and to the delight of fans - "bad girl" Portman again rapped on the popular late-night show, alongside surprise guest Andy Samberg.

Natalie Portman returned to host Saturday Night Live for the first time in twelve years, and she is back as Queen Amidala from the Star Wars prequels along with none other than Jar Jar Binks in "Natalie's Rap 2".

The rap ended with a shout out to Time's Up, the anti-sexual harassment movement for which Portman has been one of the main supporters. After the Internet went insane over the fact that Millie Bobby Brown and Natalie Portman look like they share the same DNA, the older actress took on the role of Eleven from Stranger Things, and it was epic!

What do you think of the sketch? Upon entering an abandoned, graffiti-covered garage, "Eleven" meets others who are "special" like her-and much like Eleven gets nosebleeds when she's using her powers, the characters must pay a price for their impressive gifts.
