Young “Star Wars” fans at a loss for what to do with their Padmé Amidala action figure might take a few tips from the woman behind Amidala, Natalie Portman herself.

Portman tells Rolling Stone magazine that, growing up, she had quite a collection of dolls and “I remember them being very sexual. I don’t remember ever not having my dolls have sex with each other.”

The actress says that, though all she knew how to do was rub her little dolls against one another, she did it constantly.

“All my dolls would get it on together,” she says. “Even the Barbies would get it on with other Barbies, and the guys would get it on with each other.”

In fact, she says, “My tub toys also had sex.”

Glug, glug, glug …

My mole, myself

“I used to not like my mole. But I think once I lived with it and accepted it, I think that helped me accept myself.”

The heartbreak of psoriasis

Two words I’d rather not type together: Itchy Beaver.

But that’s what the Beaver apparently is, though of course he’s not happy about it. And so he’s stepping up and taking a stand against the culprit: psoriasis.

According to Wireless Flash News, Jerry Mathers, who starred as the Beav on the 1950s TV show “Leave It to Beaver,” has just become the spokesman for the National Psoriasis Foundation.

His credentials? Chronic itchiness on his legs, ankles and butt since the 1970s. It is, he says, an “itch you just can’t scratch,” and has caused him much embarrassment over the years.

Wait till Eddie Haskell hears about this.

Double-wide mouth

“We’re both trailer-park trash, to say the least. I don’t want to offend any trailer-park people. It’s not that they’re promiscuous, because they’re not. It’s more like their choice in eye shadow.”

Juicy bits

The Russians can hem and haw all they want, but Lance Bass says he’s ready to blast into space as if it were a gaggle of gigglin’ 13-year-old girls. “I’m pretty confident we will be able to pull this off,” Bass said of his journey into the great beyond at a press conference in Moscow. “I know physically I can do this.” Guy doesn’t take ‘N-O for an answer …

“Hello, Angels,” yes. “Hello, Bosley” … maybe. “Charlie’s Angels” producer Leonard Goldberg says that things are pretty well in order for “Charlie’s Angels 2.” All three women — Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu — have signed on for a reprise. But as for Bill Murray, Goldberg tells veteran gossipist Cindy Adams, “We haven’t yet decided.” Oh, Charlie.
