Star Wars beauty Natalie Portman has embarked on a romance with Mexican screen hunk Gael Garcia Bernal.

Israeli-born Portman, 22, and 25-year-old Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN star Bernal have been spotted out and about on intimate dates in New York in recent weeks.

The pair met at an Academy Awards after-party in March (03), and have since stepped out together at other high-profile events, such as last month's (OCT03) 41ST ANNUAL NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL.

Pals claims Bernal is even making plans to move into the New York home of HARVARD UNIVERSITY graduate Portman.
