'SNL': Natalie Portman One-Ups Her 2006 Viral Rap in Second Hosting Gig

'SNL': Natalie Portman One-Ups Her 2006 Viral Rap in Second Hosting Gig

Twelve years after her first foul-mouthed Saturday Night Live rap with Andy Samberg, Natalie Portman returned to host with another equally explicit sketch.

Last night Natalie Portman hosted Saturday Night Live and managed to work in some prime Star Wars prequel content along with a moment for Stranger Things' Eleven to meet some other special teens.

Catch Portman later this month when Annihilation hits theaters February 23.

The last time Portman was on the show was 2006, she gave that bleep button a run for its money with her first SNL rap.

In a comically out-of-character move, the rap video portrays Portman sitting down for an interview in which she promises to behave. "Fucked your husband just for sport, man".

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.

Other Portman highlights from this week's show include her opening monologue, which played off of NBC's upcoming Winter Olympics coverage. And on this week's SNL, Portman came back with an update, more graphic than before and throwing Beck Bennett through a window.

"Oh, they're really good", he says.

Portman was interrupted mid-set by "field correspondent" Leslie Jones with some real-time feedback.

In addition to Samberg's cameo in the digital short, Alec Baldwin appeared as President Donald Trump in the cold open and Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey reunited for a Super Bowl-inspired sketch. The patriots from New England are proud of the five victories in battle while citizens from Philadelphia are eager to prove themselves.
