Natalie Portman may be promoting her new film Planetarium while heavily pregnant with her second child, but she's still found time for politics.

The 35-year-old spent her Columbus Day plugging Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at voter registration events in Pennsylvania.

The actress smiled broadly and clasped her hands together beneath her baby bump as she posed for photos at a Clinton campaign office in Philadelphia on Monday.

The Academy Award winner let her hair fall free over a long-sleeved pale pink dress that featured a frilled section at its hem. Black pantyhose and stilettos clashed elegantly with the rest of the ensemble.

After her first stopover, the Jerusalem native swung by another Clinton campaign office roughly six miles away in Elkins Park, where she seemed in excellent spirits as she gave a speech.

Philadelphia Magazine have cited a Clinton campaign press release saying Portman's goal is to 'urge Pennsylvanian women to register to vote, to get their friends and family to register, and to check their registration status.'

After the Elkins Park event, her action-packed day flung her about a mile away to a café called Curds 'n' Whey in Jenkintown. She then traveled approximately 14 miles from there to another campaign office in Ardmore.

Portman's long been a fan of the 68-year-old, having supported her during her unsuccessful 2008 primary run against then-Senator Barack Obama.

This December, she'll appear as Jacqueline Kennedy, Clinton's fellow onetime First Lady, in a drama film called Jackie about the aftermath of John F Kennedy's assassination.

On the personal end, her current pregnancy, which she announced last month, is her second by her husband Benjamin Millepied.

She gave birth to their son Aleph in 2011 and married the Bordeaux-born choreographer in 2012.

After a couple of years living in Paris - Portman having told Madame Figaro she'd be 'very happy to acquire' French nationality - the family relocated to Los Angeles this year. She told Jimmy Kimmel Live! she was relieved to be in LA, saying: 'Everyone smiles a lot here,' and adding: 'It's so nice!'
