FAZ Interview

 
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung interviewed Natalie on the occasion of Jackie’s upcoming release in Germany. This was done during the press junket at the Peninsula Hotel a couple of months ago (just after the American presidential elections), so the questions about Pablo Larrain’s film are complemented with those related to Natalie’s support for the Clinton campaign in November. Here are some interesting quotes, translated from German. Thanks to our friendly German fans, and Arvid in particular:

About her language skills:

Mrs. Portman, in Wikipedia we can read that you speak German…

Unfortunately, this is not true. I can only use a few words, so probably most people.

But is it true that you speak French and Hebrew?

Yes, my French is also very flawed. At home we speak English.

Girls’ Education Initiative

 
Natalie’s involvement in various humanitarian and educational initiatives over the years is well known. Free the Children (or WE) is one of them. This time, Natalie has signed, along with other eighty personalities like Charlize Theron, Lady Gaga, Ryan Reynolds, Rashida Jones or Isla Fisher, an open letter advocating the improvement and advancement of worldwide education. Drafted by campaigning and advocacy organisation ONE, the letter addresses global leaders, focussing on statistics that show women are among those who are most affected by the lack of access to their basic right of an education. Entertainment Weekly echoes the news, and here is the original source.

YOU can help all girls get the education they deserve. Add your name to our #PovertyIsSexist letter >>> Link in bio

The Sunday Times Interview

 
Natalie gave an interview for The Sunday Times‘s culture magazine this weekend, and while she essentially says nothing new that we have not read in other articles, there are some interesting quotes. The List collects some of them. Here are a few:

ST

About her “big roles”:

She seems quite unaffected by the prospect of an Oscar. When I venture that Jackie might be the biggest role of her career, she looks mildly surprised. “Oh thanks,” she mutters lightly. “I dunno, I can’t judge myself.”

When pressed, she will say that her greatest strength is her openness to failure. “I have done roles I have failed at — believe me, there are plenty of bad reviews out there.”

More Tidbits

 
And more tidbits to start the weekend:

-During the last two days the press has covered extensively the Natalie’s statements on the pay gap between actors and actresses in Marie Claire article. Ashton Kutcher, Natalie’s co-star in “No Strings Attached”, has also spoken about the issue by supporting her partner through his twitter account.

-A few months ago we learned that Natalie will collaborate with the Boston Calling Festival in a new film line-up, taking advantage of the fact that the Festival changes its headquarters to Harvard Athletic Complex. Yesterday the music line-up was revealed, and also we knew that Natalie’ s contribution will include a showcase of women-produced/directed films to be screened on the festival grounds at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. This year the events will be held between May 26 and 28.

-Today is the last day for AMPAS members to vote the nominees for the next Academy Awards, and we all hope Natalie will be among the best actress nominees for her performance in Jackie. Until we know the answer, here is a new featurette on the film titled “Legacy”:

Tidbits

 
Waiting to see a trailer for Song to Song this week, here’s a new ration of Tidbits…

-In the last few hours, several media have echoed the statements that Natalie has made in the last issue of Marie Claire UK, on the disparity in wages between actors and actresses, setting the example of their salary in No Strings Attached, the comedy that starred opposite Ashton Kutcher in 2011. Here is the quote:

“Ashton Kutcher was paid three times as much as me on No Strings Attached. I knew and I went along with it because there’s this thing with ‘quotes’ in Hollywood,” she continued. “His [quote] was three times higher than mine, so they said he should get three times more. I wasn’t as pissed as I should have been. I mean, we get paid a lot, so it’s hard to complain, but the disparity is crazy.”

“Compared to men, in most professions, women make 80 cents to the dollar,” she continued. “In Hollywood, we are making 30 cents to the dollar.”

-It has gone unnoticed, but in the same interview Natalie also talked about the future Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s biopic. The article mentions Mimi Leder (Deep Impact, The Leftovers) as the new film”s director. Hopefully we will have more details about it in the near future…

-Here we have a funny video from W Magazine with lots of actors (including Natalie), trying to sing “I Will Survive”:
