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.”

Anne Frank House

It’s a sore spot for me that I was never able to see Natalie play Anne Frank during her Broadway run as a teenager. I’m sure I’m not the only fan who would do anything to get hold of a filmed copy of that play.

If we can’t see that, at least we can take some solace in this new photo taken back on September 1st 1997. The 16 year old Natalie visited Anne Frank House to educate herself prior to starting work on the play.

Gallery Updates

I’ve updated the gallery with three new-old photos of a heavily made-up Natalie posing for a self assignment shoot back in 2009.

More From Paramount

A couple more bits and bobs from the Paramount 100 anniversary photo shoot. Below is a video of the stars arriving and the shoot itself. Natalie doesn’t get much screen time, but if you wondered which of the celebs around her she would turn to talk to when the shot was completed, you can now get that answer.

Juan also found a bigger version of Natalie in the photo.

Knight Of Poooots

Another day and another new cast member on Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups. Hopefully Natalie’s work isn’t finished, but I think we can assume that Christian Bale is clearly playing the lead character of the film.

New photos show Bale with another Dazza crush, Imogen Poots. If Natalie’s role is marginal, at least there will be plenty of actors in both this and the second Malick film to look forward to.

Once again click the image below for The Playlist’s write up.

Bieber Ruins Everything

Vanity Fair has a photo commemorating the 100th anniversary of Paramount Pictures, and in the photo are a host of stars and industry people who have played their part in that legacy.

Natalie is quite easy to spot as her purple dress absolutely pops and she is well positioned in the photo. Further on to the right you’ll see Justin Bieber acting like a knob and Robert Downey Jnr. thinking about kicking his ass off the podium.
