Nat Sighting

By August 23, 2009Nat-news

A visitor to the site, Martin, had a surprising Nat sighting in London on Saturday. Here’s his story.

I took a trip to see ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ at the Donmar Warehouse today with Rachel Weisz staring as Blanche Dubois.

About 5 mins before the play starts a couple of women sit in front of me and as I’m flicking through the program, I’m thinking i recognise that voice, look up and its only Natalie sat chatting to a friend.

Im not sure if she was tired or bored of the play but she was constantley shuffling in her seat, cracking her knuckles and playing with her necklace.

Also I’m assuming that Elliot Cowan (the actor playing the role of Stanley) wasn’t doing a good enough southern accent since everytime he had a lot of dialouge – Natalie and her friend burst into a fit of giggling!

Knuckle cracking? Say it ain’t so! 😛

    I hate people giggling during movies (or plays)…

    Damn, now I have to hate Natalie -.-

  • AustenFan says:

    I don’t mean to sound rude here because I usually enjoy Natalie’s performances, but she shoudn’t be laughing at people’s abilities to accomplish an accent, she’s quite awful at it herself.

  • dazza says:

    Well its important to take these kind of reports with a grain of salt. Martin sounds like a sincere guy but only Natalie and her friend really know what the inside joke was.

  • Jenski says:

    Oh please. I suck at accents to but tat doesn’t mean tat Stepen Moyers “souther” accent doesn’t crack me up.

    “Ah ahm a vampyre! You MUHST fear me, Suckie!”

    You mean Streetcar *isn’t* a comedy?!

  • hittheheart says:

    You would think Natalie Portman – as a performer – might be empathetic. Maybe she is as pretentious as people say. BIG SIGH

  • Moushki says:

    In Natalie’s defence, I went to see Streetcar at the Donmar a couple of weeks ago (yes, I know, I am quietly seething…) and the seats in there are likely to send even the most agile bum to sleep – they are so uncomfortable. I should imagine everyone else was shuffling about too!

    The play was brilliant – Rachel Weisz a superb Blanche. Darren Aronofsky has been there most nights too. And the guy playing Stanley honestly didn’t have a very good accent!
