Calendar – October

Just in time for the new month, here is a Leon anniversary celebrating calendar wallpaper from Kris (the artist Kris, not our own Kris). Not too bad, if I don’t say so myself.

Tarantino Likes Leon

Writer, director and actor film lover, Quentin Tarantino, is also the owner of the New Beverly Cinema in LA. The theatre is reopening after some alterations and in the second week of October he will be screening, in 35mm, Leon The Professional along with his own Pulp Fiction. Both films share a 20 year anniversary, and the fact that they are both bloody brilliant.

If you’re in the area, the two films will be screening for 6 nights and tickets are only $8.

Thanks to Adonis and Belerofonte.

Lending A Hand

I’ll keep this really short. It’s been quite a few months since we felt the need to do a small donation drive, but it’s definitely time to send out a reminder for those of you who enjoy the site and have the means to throw a few bucks our way to cover costs. It’s all very much appreciated and ensures we can keep bringing you the Natalie news…or at least we’d be able to bring you news if there was actual news – it’s coming, Natfans, hang in there!

You can donate via the Paypal link below. If you have a product that you’d like me to talk about on the site, I’d be happy to discuss that. Or, you can simply make www.natalieportman.com excluded from your ad blocker of choice.

Thanks as always.

Mille Addition

We have a new addition to the Richard Mille appearance from a few weeks back, and it’s probably the clearest photo so far. Pictured with Natalie is Mille himself and Benjamin. Thanks to Belerofonte.

It’s time for another edition of mini news items.

– Natalie attended Rachel Bilson’s (from The OC and…uh…) baby shower recently, and gave her a birth bead. Not the most lavish of gifts, but it sounds like this was the arranged gift for all of the attendees. The father of the child is sand hater or former Star Wars co-star, Hayden Christensen.

– Much to our chagrin, but not surprise, Natalie’s two films with Terrence Malick didn’t land on the 2014 festival circuit. The Playlist looks at why this may be, along with 14 other notable films that remain under wraps for now.

– Lastly, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies (the one time Natalie starring vehicle, now just baring her name as producer) continues to steam-roll forward with a couple great additions to the cast – Charles Dance and Lena Heady – the fantastic father and daughter duo from Game Of Thrones.

Fall Gala

We have just a few photos from Natalie’s appearance at the New York City Ballet Fall Gala, which is a real shame because I’m really digging this look. Bloomberg has a write up of the event, which includes a little Natalie and Benjamin mention near the end.

Thanks to Kitten and Belerofonte.

As promised, here is the big best Leon The Professional scene/moment poll. A big thanks to all who left submissions – sorry if your favourite scene didn’t make it in. The poll doesn’t allow images, so I’ll try and be as descriptive as possible.

As for the Garden State poll, wow, VERY interesting results. Most loved the film then and love it now, which is no big surprise. What is interesting is that almost a 3rd of you like the film less now than you did when it came out. While almost nobody had the opposite experience.

Meeting Max Minghella

Lost in the shuffle, we’ve updated the gallery with some new candids of Natalie meeting fellow actor Max Minghella for lunch in Los Feliz earlier this month.

Evening all

The favourite Leon scenes poll will be arriving on Wednesday, but to tide you guys over, how about a really nice piece of fanart from Mariam.

You Have A Friend

Not quite Blooming Bouquet but cute in their own way, here are some photos of Natalie for the Israel charity, You Have A Friend. The charity distributes food to the less fortunate families in Jerusalem and Natalie is a patron – click here for a written message of support from Natalie, as well as another photo.



Thanks to Belerofonte.

Best Leon Scene/Moments

In a few days I want to do a Leon The Professional poll, asking Natalie fans to vote on their favourite scene or moment from the film. Rather than just pick MY favourite moments for you to choose from, I’m opening it up so that you can leave your suggestions in the comments. Selections from the original and extended cut are valid. Go nuts!

Blooming Bouquet Day 3

This is working out well. The news week has been so quiet that it couldn’t have been planned better to post these great Dior photos to fill the void. Today’s image brings sexy back.

Blooming Bouquet Day 2

We’re back with another new photo from Natalie’s Blooming Bouquet campaign for Dior. This one is even better than yesterday.

Get The Look

We haven’t had one of these style-centric updates for awhile, but Juan took the effort to track down a couple of the items from Natalie’s return to LA outfit, so let’s make sure it gets seen by any Natalie fans who might want to indulge.

Natalie’s bag is the Adidas Iconic Big Tote by galpal, Stella McCartney. She’s also wearing Stella on her, presumably, tiny feet – Adidas Weekender Sneakers

New Poll + Results

Garden State came out 10 years ago and it’s a film that felt very fresh at the time but it seems opinions have changed a bit. So I wanted to see if this was the case with Natalie fans. I know the answers don’t cover everything but hopefully there is a choice close to how you feel.

As for the results of that glorious Natalie news week – you poor guys are so film deprived that even a sniff of a new project takes precedence over everything.

New Closer Promo

It’s a little awkward looking but hell, a new Closer promo photo is alright by me!
