that’s right. My name is Sanjiro Jones. come with me now as we start the fourteenth PORTMANIA!! i remember the FIRST PORTMANIA. i was 22 years old. AND YOU WERE ALL BABIES. and now i’m an old man. and you are STILL BABIES!! WHAT THE?!
The drought is over (for today at least)! Not sure if these are for a magazine or part of her Dior campaign, but either way we have some brand spanking new editorial photos of Natalie for you to enjoy.
Can you feel that energy in the air? That’s Portmania. Can you hear that rumbling down the road? That’s Portmania. Can you smell that smokey discharge of a raging fire? That’s…clearly not Portmania, you better go check on where that’s coming from.
Sanjiro will be at the mic starting Monday until Natalie’s birthday the following Saturday. We’re going to have a lot of fun (or die trying) and once again I want to encourage you guys to contribute however you see fit.
The first fanart has started to arrive but we want more. MORE! So get creative, have fun, and mail me what you cook up.
Rachel set up another gallery that is also from the Terrence Malick shoot, but obviously a very different scene. Natalie has an entirely different, and pretty cool, look and the photos were taken in Beverly Hills.
Okay, before anything else of import happens, let’s finally get to this Barbarella poll. The rumour surfaced from a reputable enough source but we shot it down. Still, I’m curious as to whether the idea of Sofia Coppola directing Natalie in a remake of Barbarella would have made you guys excited or frightened.
Last time we asked for votes to work out your feelings about Natalie’s new Western project. I must admit, I thought there would be a sizable push back because of the Western genre, which isn’t everyone’s cup of moonshine. But only 4 people voted that way, while over half the votes are very positive BECAUSE of the synopsis and genre.
Another rock ‘em sock ‘em edition of mini updates coming at ya.
- That Israel visit may have been mistaken, because according to this tweet, Natalie was spotted at a mall in San Antonio, Texas. Since Terrence Malick’s test shooting (or real shooting, who knows) has been in Austin and other parts of Texas, I think Natalie might finally be reporting for active duty. Stay tuned.
- Natalie’s music video for Paul McCartney, My Valentine, is getting the full cinema treatment. Oscar king, Harvey Weinstein, has arranged for the music video to play before screenings of the new French film, The Intouchables.
- And finally, here is a paparazzi video from Natalie’s hike with friends and Aleph from a few months ago. I think these kinds of video’s are very informative to us as fans. Sure, we can imagine how annoying the paparazzi must be, but video’s like this really drive that point home.
I kept hoping the cameraman would topple down the side of the mountain.
As you know, I’m slowly updating the biography page so it’s a better reflection of who Natalie is today. In trying to work out who Natalie’s favourite actors and actresses might be, I got a bit stuck. I guess once you reach Natalie’s level of stardom, interviewers don’t really ask “so who is your favourite actor?” anymore.
You’ll also know that I have a source who would likely know these answers, but I try not to be annoying (quite a difficult feat for me) and only email when it’s important. Like a new film rumour.
But given how frustrated I was, I decided to bite the bullet and ask. I’m glad I did because I got a heap of names, and these are just the first names that my source could think of.
So, after the jump, take a look at the actors and actresses that Natalie is a fan of… (more…)
I’ve updated the gallery with some more photos of Natalie taking Aleph to a playground (Whiz makes a guest appearance) in Los Angeles last week. Aleph can be clearly seen in all of the photos, so avoid this one if that bothers you.
