Having already teamed up last year on a Free the Children project, Natalie is back for an encore — this time as an ambassador for the charity.

As a mother and the organization’s newest ambassador, I am grateful to Free the Children for giving me the opportunity to channel my passion and love of children into meaningful action that furthers the education and leadership of young women for years to come,” Natalie said in a statement. “I hope others join me in supporting this important cause.”

It was also announced that Natalie has partnered with Dior — she’s currently the face of the brand’s Miss Dior Cherie fragrance campaign — with proceeds from the sale of the company’s newest Rouge Dior lipstick to go to Free the Children in support of its Scholarships for Girls’ Secondary Education in Kenya program.

ABC gave the go-ahead on Monday to adapt Scruples, the 1978 novel by Judith Krantz, into a possible drama series.

The author’s son, Tony — a former CAA agent turned successful producer and director – will shepherd the pilot with Natalie Portman, who will also serve as an executive producer on the project. This is the actress’ first attempt at producing a series.

The book was a bestseller and follows the life of Wilhelmina Hunnewell Winthrop, aka Billy, a previously plump woman who loses weight, becomes fabulously cool, and survives a very rich (and very old) first husband. She ends up opening up a Beverly Hills clothing boutique called “Scruples.”

The script is from Bob Brush and Mel Harris and will be produced through Warner Bros. TV, which has the rights to Scruples after making the 1980 miniseries that starred Lindsay Wagner.
