You can read the article/interview with Natalie which will be published in January’s Vogue below.

Some actresses get mired in prettiness and never reach the dark place where the great work hides. Natalie Portman is the opposite. At 29, she is in the process of smashing through the aura of perfection she carries—Queen Amidala from Star Wars, hugely gifted beauty with a Harvard degree, and vegan to boot. Drama is dangerous, heroines are carnivores, and talent demands burnt offerings. As Nina in Darren Aronofsky’s gory ballet tale Black Swan, she transforms herself from timid ingenue to powerful maenad. The film is set in a ballet company where dancers vie for the attention of a coldly knowing choreographer; when he casts the virginal, anorexic Nina to star as Odette/Odile, the white swan and the black swan in Swan Lake, she must literally break through her body and lose her mind to be reborn as an artist. Portman’s performance is a tour de force that takes the audience inside Nina, keeps you with her as she transgresses taboos, and makes you participate, for a few thrilling moments when Nina becomes the swan, in the kind of transcendent self-loss that only artists know.

Posted under Gallery, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, Movies with Comments Off on “Love And…” Now Titled “The Other Woman”

Natalie’s “Love And Other Impossible Pursuits” has been picked up by IFC Films and will now be titled “The Other Woman“. Two posters for the film have been added to the gallery, below is the description for the film.

The radiant Natalie Portman (CLOSER, BLACK SWAN) lights up the screen in this frank, funny, and heart-wrenching adaptation of bestselling author Ayelet Waldman’s novel about life, loss, and family directed by Don Roos (THE OPPOSITE OF SEX, HAPPY ENDINGS).

Emilia (Portman) is a Harvard law school graduate and a newlywed, having just married Jack (Scott Cohen, THE UNDERSTUDY), a high-powered New York lawyer, who was her boss – and married – when she began working at his law firm. Unfortunately, her life takes an unexpected turn when Jack and Emilia lose their newborn daughter. Emilia struggles through her grief to connect with her new stepson William (Charlie Tahan, I AM LEGEND), but is finding it hard to connect with this precocious child. Perhaps the most difficult obstacle of all for Emilia is trying to cope with the constant interferences of her husband’s angry, jealous ex-wife, Carolyn (Lisa Kudrow).
