In a Vanity Fair video series aimed at highlighting the hidden talents of various celebrities, movie star Natalie Portman gave a lesson in Hebrew slang.

Portman, who was born in Israel, focused on commonly used insults — such as “ben zona” (son of a b–ch) and “manyak” (maniac) — and other terms like: “eize basa” (what a downer) and “balagan” (mess).

The video, published on Monday as a part of the entertainment magazine’s “Secret Talent Theatre” series, ended with the “Jackie” star explaining the meaning of the salutation “L’chaim” — “to life.”
