Bollywood actor, Saif Ali Khan, mentioned a few days ago that he was working on a new project with Natalie. On Thursday we were quick to shoot down his comments, and just assumed he was trying to get some publicity by name dropping Natalie.

As it turns out, his reasoning might have been the complete opposite. Khan has confessed to joking about the Natalie project, as a way of getting back at the media who are always speculating about his career and personal life and, in his view, making up stories.

Only problem is, his little joke resulted in his phone “ringing day in and day out” as the media scrambled to find out more about the project. For what it’s worth, here is his…errr…apology?

“It was a joke, I am sorry”, smiles Saif, “It’s just that I am very annoyed with speculations on all the aspects of my life. If this goes on, I might just start making up stories like these to entertain myself. Hope people will understand that.”

Since Natalie was linked to Cloud Atlas for so long, now that we’ve seen the trailer, I want to know if you guys are disappointed or relieved that she wasn’t involved.

The Cloud Atlas minus Natalie poll

As for the Thor results, just me and 9 other people were hoping for Natalie’s Jane Foster to be tested by some dramatic scenes in the sequel. That came in last place. In first place, by a considerable margin, were Natalie fans clamoring for Natalie to get her hands dirty and be involved in more of the action.


What do Natalie fans want from her appearance in Thor 2?

Jane involved in more action. – 52.7% (88 votes)

Jane and Thor taking their romance to the next level. – 18.6% (31 votes)

I mostly wish Natalie would drop out of the film. – 10.8% (18 votes)

Jane up to more fish out of water comedy. – 9.6% (16 votes)

Jane being pushed into more drama and melodrama. – 6% (10 votes)

Gallery Updates

Garcy found a great new-oldie from a November 2005 German Vogue photo shoot floating around on Tumblr. We had this photo in the gallery previously, but not in such nice quality and unobscured by watermarks.

Tidbits: Special Edition

This morning’s mini updates were okay but I’m back with another dose and this batch is a lot more substantial.

– First up, and I think we might be breaking this news, the ABC TV pilot that Natalie was producing is NOT going to series. I’ll try and find out more, such as if they actually filmed the pilot, but rest assured that it won’t be hitting our screens later this year. I doubt too many people will be upset about this.

– Next up, actor Saif Ali Khan insists that he’s working on a project with Natalie.

The actor messaged, “A love story we are working on… It’s a secret…We are doing a film with Natalie Portman.”


I was already able to get confirmation that Mr Khan is dead wrong. Perhaps he meant Keira Knightley…

– Finally, earlier we mentioned the Cloud Atlas project that Natalie was linked to (it’s also one of her favourite books and is directed by former collaborators – Tom Tykwer and The Wachowski’s) and today the extended trailer debuted. It looks incredibly ambitious.

Just a few quick updates before I head out the door…

– The first images from Cloud Atlas have arrived. I know Natalie didn’t end up doing the film, but by all accounts she was close, so you might be interested to see how it’s turning out.

– Natalie and Benjamin were among the celebs attending a benefit at the Beverly Hills Hotel for Project Angel Food, which cooks and delivers free nutritious meals to men, women and children affected by life-threatening illnesses.

– Finally, Starprincess66 sent in a fan montage showing off Natalie’s pregnancy with Aleph.

Natalie heads to LAX

Natalie was all smiles as she toted Whiz to LAX earlier today. She’s most likely jetting off to Massachusetts to support her husband, the artistic director for Nantucket’s 2012 Dance Festival.

This is how sharp I am. Someone posted on our Facebook page asking what the new scent was. Instead of replying with a tongue in cheek “it smells like Natalie in France”, I googled Le Parfum scent to see if there was some kind of description out there.

I went to a few sites, including this one, but didn’t find what I was looking for. The Eden sends me a message showing me a new Natalie photo and straight away I’m thinking “I’ve seen that somewhere before…”. Turns out I had stumbled on the photo earlier but breezed over it assuming it was old.

So thank goodness for the likes of Eden and Rachel.

New Dior Ad

It’s a bit small but a big thanks to Toto for finding this new Miss Dior Le Parfum ad. When we get a better quality version, we might have to do a super mini pic battle between this and the old ad.

UPDATE – Click the image to now view a bigger version. Thanks to Miller

Rogue Dior Nude Preview

Garcy found a great preview of Natalie’s fall campaign for Rouge Dior’s Nude Grège N°169. If you’ve been following the campaign, you’ll remember this is the shade Natalie chose to promote in benefit of the Free The Children foundation. All profits from the sales will be going towards scholarships for girls’ secondary education in Kenya.

Bale And Portman

Yesterday’s article about Natalie and Bale not getting on was clearly BS, but I sent off a mail to my source to try and see if maybe there was an inkling of truth, even if overblown.

The answer I got back paints a completely different picture. Not only is she not butting heads with Bale, Natalie “loves” working with him and thinks he’s “brilliant”.

So much for that.

KoC Punch

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a good dose of crazy unsubstantiated speculation, but one can always count on The National Enquirer to come through with the goods.

According to a “source”, Natalie and Christian Bale are not getting along on Knight of Cups. Natalie is so frustrated by Bale’s perfectionism and seriousness that she’s ready to walk off the project! I wonder if these idiots even realize that Natalie is only shooting for a week. With big gaps between a lot of the filming days. This kind of story would probably be better used for two actors who have to see and deal with each other every day, no?

“Natalie can’t stand him,” an “insider” tells The National Enquirer. “She thinks he’s tedious, arrogant and a disgrace to the acting profes­sion.”

“A disgrace to the acting profession?” That’s a bit much. What exactly did Christian do to earn Natalie’s scorn?

Buzz Reveal

I’ve always been very split on the Blender shoot from 2005. I hate the look they used for the cover, while absolutely adoring the long sleeved dress shots.

Now Rachel has made a great find – a new image from the shoot, which stands out because Natalie isn’t wearing the wig that was used in all the other images.

Not exactly glamorous but very interesting in a stark and tough kind of way.

Dinner WIth Aleph

Natalie carried a sleepy Aleph, sporting musical jimjams, to dinner on Wednesday. The paparazzi were there and received a death stare that must have chilled them to the bone.

Please note that Aleph is very visible in all the photos.

A nice selection of mini updates this evening.

– Let’s begin with Black Swan, which apparently ruffled some feathers after receiving the most complaints in 2011 after it aired on the BBC. The main cause of offense was not face stabbing and body mutilation, oh no, it was lesbian sex. Slam your foreheads against your keyboards in 3…2…1…

“While the scene is visually discreet, narratively justified and within the 15 guidelines criteria, some correspondents felt it was pornographic in nature,” said the report.

“That it was a sex scene between two women was an aggravating factor for some who argued that portrayals of homosexual activity should either be restricted to the 18 category, or not shown at all.”


– Natalie returns to the stage…actually, Natalie kinda IS the stage in Natalie Portman: The Musical.

– Finally, Natalie wasn’t there but you guys might be interested in seeing Christian Bale filming a Knight Of Cups night club scene with DJ, Paul Oakenfold.
