Natalie Portman Weight: Although several things play into your weight (like height, body frame, body fat percentage, etc.), it really is good to possess a basic concept of what you are aiming for if you’re going for Natalie Portman’s weight or look. For you to determine the right weight for your height as compared to a Natalie Portman weight, you will have to find your individual BMI.
What is BMI? BMI is an acronym for Body Mass Index, and measures your weight in accordance with your height. While this is not the best approach to calculate overall health (I definitely prefer body fat percentage, however that takes more work to calculate), BMI is not difficult to compute and doesn’t require anything but a tape measure and a scale. In order to find your Body Mass Index, input your numbers into the following equation:
B.M.I. = (weight in pounds X 703) ÷ (height in inches)²
Natalie Portman Height and Weight: Natalie Portman’s weight is reportedly 107 pounds, and she has a height of 5’3″. However, the Natalie Portman weight loss for her role as a ballerina in Black Swan put her at 87 pounds. This Natalie Portman weight loss didn’t last long and wasn’t healthy, so we’ll look at her regular maintained weight instead. With that said, let’s do this formula for Natalie:
(107 X 703) ÷ (63)² = 18.96
This shows she has a body mass index of 18.96, and that is essentially categorized as “normal”…albeit, barely! Below is a table you can use to observe where you fall on the unhealthy/healthy spectrum:
Because it doesn’t take note of your body frame, the BMI equation can be a little deceiving. I prefer to use the process below to find a far more accurate B.M.I. for my clients:
BODY FRAME METHOD: To identify your body frame size, wrap your thumb and right middle index finger around your left wrist. If the tips of your fingers overlap, you have a small body frame. If your fingers touch but don’t overlap, you have a medium body frame. If your finger tips nearly touch or aren’t close to touching, you have a large body frame. Right after you have identified your body frame, compare to the table below:
