Natalie Portman Reveals She’s A ‘Baby-Sitters Club’ Super-Fan With Epic Instagram Post

Natalie Portman took to Instagram recently to share a new prized possession: a signed copy of a book from The Baby-Sitters Club series — along with a special note from author Ann M. Martin.

“Today was a VERY IMPORTANT day for me,” wrote the “Black Swan” Oscar winner in the caption alongside a photo capturing her beyond-excited expression while displaying the signed book.

“I read every single Babysitter’s Club book when I was a kid,” she continued. “Once when I was 9, I waited in line for 4 hours at my local bookstore to meet Ann M Martin. And today I got this in the mail from her. I feel so lucky that I grew up with books about girls who worked together, supported each other, were entrepreneurs, and who all had very different personalities. I still identify as a Kristy mixed with Stacey and a dash of Dawn. Which babysitter are you?”

Portman is not alone in her extreme fandom for the beloved young-adult book series, with such fellow celebs as Mindy Kaling, Julianne Moore and Kat Dennings adding comments to reveal themselves as Babysitters Club super-fans as well, as did ballerina Mary Helen Bowers and Rodarte fashion designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy.
