Secret French Film

 
Two pieces of film news in one week? What is this witchcraft? Below is a new article/interview feature from Grazia magazine. Dior is the main subject, but Natalie talks about film, family, food and France. In particular, she mentions that she has a French film in the works, but it’s a secret. Consider my curiosity well and truly piqued.

Did someone say film news? Holy hell, it has been too. Damn. Long. Here is a very evocative “promo” poster of Natalie’s first directorial feature film, A Tale Of Love And Darkness.

The Find Of The Year

 
Natalie fans are blessed with a catalogue of thousands of photos of her through the years. However, we all know that for every one great editorial shot, there are dozens more that are just as good but never see the light of day. When we do catch a glimpse of these “extras”, particularly years after the fact, it feels akin to finding treasure. Today Kitten delivered some priceless gems, with several additions to one of the very first ever Natalie photoshoots.

Click the thumb below to check out the additions to the Bruce Weber shoot of Natalie and Alessandro Gassman from 1994.

We continue the Leon content, in celebration of the film’s 20 year anniversary, with some set photos of Natalie posing with cast and crew. I think this classic Gary Oldman pose has been seen by all but these others might be new to some fans. In order, Natalie with director Luc Besson, with Jean Reno and with everyoooooone!

Star

 
Eden Liao is back with another Dior Star find, and this might be my favourite shot. Mostly because of the shadows caused by Natalie’s eyelashes. What do you think?

Rouge Dior Baume

 
Baume! The weekend of awesome Natalie content kicks off with two ads from her new Rouge Dior Baume campaign. Based on those two images it’s already a huge step up from its predecessor, the awful Rouge Dior campaign. A big thanks to Eden Liao for the find.

Bacall Statement

 
Following up from yesterday’s update, Natalie has now released a statement about Lauren Bacall’s passing. Clearly she made a lasting impression on Natalie. Thanks to Kitten for the find.

“Lauren Bacall’s strength, wit and talent matched her extreme beauty. I had the great fortune that she so generously allowed me to direct her in my first short film,” the 33-yera-old actress told JustJared.com. “It was a true honor to watch her act up close – her sense of humor, timing and imagination were apparent in every moment. I will never forget the gift of her trust in me and the inimitable and vast talent she had. My deepest condolences to her loved ones.”

Jay Z and Beyonce

 
Natalie and Benjamin attended a Jay Z and Beyonce concert at the Rose Bowl on Saturday night, and we have photos and video’s of the arrival. What’s most interesting is that Natalie, who has spoken about how she likes to re-use clothes as much as possible, is doing just that by seemingly turning a dress worn in 1997 (!!!) into a cool top.

After the jump we have two videos, bookended by the most grating rock tune imaginable.

Tidbits

 
A nice batch of mini updates for you. Thanks to Belerofonte and Adonis.

- Let’s kick things off with a Luc Besson quote about a sequel to The Professional.

Natalie is old now, she’s a mother. [Laughs] It’s too late. If I got an idea tomorrow about a sequel, of course I would do it. But I never came up with something strong enough. I don’t want to do sequels for money, I want to do a sequel because it’s worth it. I want it to be as good or better than the original.

The old thing was probably a joke but we know that Luc has written a script for Mathilda and that he doesn’t hold the rights to the property, which is a big reason why no sequel has been attempted. It’s nice to hear him say he would want it to be better than the original, my concern would be Luc thinking better means more running along walls and upper-cutting bad guys in slow motion.

- Next up, some potential Avengers 2 spoilers (only for those who are VERY spoilerphobic) regarding Chris O’Dowd, the Irish actor who was on a date with Jane Foster at the beginning of Thor 2.

- Finally, a photo from the Attack Of The Clones shoot, showing just how boring being on set can be.

Got To Get Em All

 
Eden found a tantalizing glimpse at more images from Natalie’s new Dior Star campaign. Here’s hoping most of these see the light of day.

Make A Wish

 
How about a little heart warming on this cold (at least where I am) Sunday afternoon? Last year Natalie worked with Make A Wish Australia to make one specific dream, of a young cancer sufferer, come true. Click the thumb below to read the full story up on the Make A Wish Australia Facebook page.
