Black Swan stunner Natalie Portman has emerged as the celebrity with most page views on Internet Movie Database (IMDb), dethroning perennial chart-topper Johnny Depp.

With so much going on around her, Portman attracted the most page views on the website.

Check out who else made it to the list!

Portman's gorgeous Black Swan costar Mila Kunis, who's being hailed as the star of tomorrow along with contemporary Emma Stone, was the second most popular celebrity on the website.

Besides being impossibly good looking, the 28-year-old hottie has an interesting body of work to her credit -- she's Meg Griffin's voice on Seth McFarlane's animated sitcom Family Guy, played love interest to Jason Segal's jilted character in the irreverant Forgetting Sarah Marshall and was recently seen in Friends With Benefits with Justin Timberlake.

One of the hottest emerging actresses at present, Emma Stone floored fans with her portrayal of wisecracking teen in comedy film Easy A.

Starting out with indie projects like Superbad and Zombieland, the youngster today finds herself catapulted in the big league -- she appeared in two highly acclaimed films this year -- The Help and Crazy Stupid Love  and is set to star opposite Hollywood's golden boy James Franco in Spiderman reboot Amazing Spiderman.
