Portman auctions clothes for friend's sick son

Star Wars star Natalie Portman is auctioning off clothes and movie memorabilia to help raise cash for a friend's young son who has been diagnosed with Bloom's Syndrome.

The actress was heartbroken when she discovered little Milo Gladstone had been diagnosed with the rare genetic disorder and hurriedly scoured her closets to see what she could sell to help.

Among the items Portman will offer up to fans at the www.clothesoffourback.org Internet auction on Sunday is the musical snow globe she and cast-mates were given as gifts after the Star Wars saga finished shooting.

She said: "It was a little hard to part with."
