With Natalie flying out to France I was concerned that Natalie’s work on Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups might be over already, thus meaning a very small role.

Well, yesterday @BagSnob tweeted that Knight of Cups was literally filming in front of her and that Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie were all in attendance.

Any doubts were soon brushed aside as instagram photos popped up (none of Natalie unfortunately) like the one below of Bale with another gorgeous new cast member, Frida Pinto.


Some other non Natalie set photos have popped up. They’re semi-spoilerish so I’ll post about it after the jump…

Drawing

Here is another knockout drawing from Daniel M. Unfortunately it’s the last one that I have, but hopefully we will get more work from him in the future.

Gallery Updates

I’ve updated the gallery with some untagged and HQ additions to last week’s candid photos of Natalie and family going to lunch in Los Feliz. Not terribly fascinating stuff unless you’re really into the back of Natalie’s head.

Tidbits

New week. New tidbits!

- If this report is accurate, a noisy Aleph (little dude, your mom is Natalie Portman, there is nothing to cry about unless it’s tears of joy) disrupted meal time at a vegan restaurant enough for Natalie to offer to pay for the meals of those tables who were nearby.

Read all about that and other Natalie and Aleph adventures over here.

- In an article about forgotten movie child stars, Lukas Haas is mentioned along with the “fact” that he dated Natalie for 15 months in 1999. It’s probably more or less true as they were definitely close back then, after they both appeared in Mars Attacks. Awww, young love.

- Finally, here’s a strange example of a German company using a photo of Natalie in their advertising. Did they legally purchase the image? Probably not, but I imagine a lot of smaller companies, particularly in foreign countries, can get away with it quite easily.

Good luck trying to get a 3/4 side on hair obscuring photo used for your passport :-P

Okay, you’ve had a few hours to look over the newly found photos posted yesterday and now it’s time to pick your favourite. Of course, this now means that there will have to be another three way matchup in the next round, which wasn’t my plan. But somehow I think we’ll survive.

NOW VOTE!

The winner of the last matchup is after the jump.

Please Sir

Well damn, I guess we’re going to have to have a bonus round for our ongoing pic battle. Reason being is that we now have three new photos added to the album.

We’ll get to that tomorrow, so right now just enjoy the new photos and muse about which one you’re going to vote for.

Tidbits

Just two items today but they’re arguably important enough to have updates of their own. I’m probably just being lazy by lumping them together.

- Yesterday was World Music Day and it sounds like Natalie and Benjamin took in a musical festival at Larros Gujan-Mestraas to commemorate the occasion. Looking at a rough translation it looks like some of Benjamin’s family were involved in the festival. I’m sure we’ll get some clarification on that in the comments section.

- And it’s once again time to vote for Peta’s sexiest vegetarian. If memory serves, Natalie has only won it once and this year faces added competition from new A listers, Rooney Mara and Jessica Chastain.

So go throw your support behind Natalie and VOTE!

How cute is this Tumblr photo, found by Garcy, of Natalie and Benjamin sharing a private (sorryyyyy!) moment on the dance floor?

Kat Back?

In a new interview, Natalie’s friend and co-star in Thor, Kat Dennings, is asked towards the end if she will be in Thor 2 or any other Marvel films. Kat responds that she knows but can’t talk about it yet, which strongly suggests that she will be back for the sequel.

It’d be worth it just to see the two of them doing press together again.

Busy Really Busy

Filipe sent in this brief interview with Natalie. After reading the first few questions I felt like there wasn’t going to be anything new, but lo and behold, the last few questions teased out some new details from Natalie.


Do you have any acting role models?
I love Holly Hunter, as well as Isabelle Huppert, Juliette Binoche, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett and Julianne Moore. I met Isabelle Huppert after a play in Athens, in Greece. She did a very avant-garde version of A Streetcar Named Desire.

What is a day in Natalie Portman‘s life like?
I play with a lot of blocks! I spend most of the day playing, singing or changing diapers. I make food – rice, pasta, vegetables, beans. In the afternoon, I have meetings or phone calls for my production company or I read scripts, then there’s more playing with the baby, or going into the pool.

Tidbits

Just a couple tidbits tonight. The theme: life!

- Natalie has been nominated for the ALIVE Awards and normally I have no problem with Natalie being up for awards but dammit, I’m alive too. What gives?

As it turns out, the awards are there to honour celebrities who distinguish themselves by contributing to health and environmental causes.

The two day event takes place on June 29-30 and Natalie is nominated for the movie star and beauty categories.

- And stand up, Janeane Garofalo, mentions Natalie again in this new article.

“I would like to say yes to life. But that’s not really me.” She closed with a story about running into Natalie Portman in an elevator, focused almost entirely on how tiny Portman is. “I would say yes to life if I was Natalie Portman,” she concluded.

Natalie Back In France

Earlier someone claimed to spot Natalie at Charles de Gaulle airport in France, but considering we know she was in LA on Sunday, I was suspicious. Well, my suspicions were unfounded because Natalie, Benjamin and Alpeh have been snapped in Paris.

Shopping

This new set of candid photos is interesting and possibly unique. It’s taken inside a shopping market, which I thought wasn’t allowed, and in that close proximity I would have expected Natalie to give the photographer a glare to remember.

They certainly would have deserved it.

Some Thor 2 News

We’re probably 3 or 4 months away from Thor 2 production kicking into gear. Recently we got word that Mads Mikkelsen was joining the cast as a villain, and with production looming, we should soon be getting a lot more story and casting info.

Mr. Marvel, Kevin Feige, gave an interview to Empire Magazine (via Collider, primarily about the success of The Avengers, but also dropped in a few more Thor 2 tidbits.



“We’re going to see the other side of Asgard. It’s not all polished and golden in this film. And the events of Avengers will have affected Thor for sure. His relationship with Loki will continue to evolve, and the biggest part is Natalie and Thor returning with Jane Foster.”


I like the idea of seeing a different side of Asgard. It was pretty to look at in the first film, but never really felt like a living and breathing place.

I just hope Jane’s fish out of water experience isn’t played as a gag. It worked with Thor but I’m not as keen seeing Natalie prat falling her way through Asgard. Anyone feel the same?

Tidbits

It’s been awhile since we’ve been able to dip into the mini updates bag. Here we go…

- Natalie wrote the foreword for her Black Swan trainers book, and this article has a little snippet.

The actress wrote the foreword for “Ballet Beautiful,” noting that, after working with Bowers, her “arms and legs completely changed shape. My posture looked, as my dad said, like I had swallowed a broom.”


- Speaking of Black Swan, Jennifer Whalen was one of the dancers in the film and was more pleased than some at how it turned out.

“I’m happy that it shows the dark side of ballet,” she said. “It’s not all pretty tutus. On stage, we are these beautiful, graceful creatures.

“Backstage, we’re hunched over, lying on the floor, even yelling if the performance didn’t go well. We are like a dysfunctional family.”


- Finally, a little Jane Foster mention in this article about the science of Hollywood.

“I’d like to think there’s a 10-year-old girl seeing Natalie Portman talking about Einstein-Rosen bridges (wormholes) and saying, ‘That’s something I might want to do, that’s a pretty cool thing.”
