Natalie has attended the Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight, where she talked about Jackie, the recently deceased John Hurt, her career, and being pregnant again. We hope to have a video of the full interview soon. Meanwhile, here are some photos, the first from the show and another of the arrival to the TV studios. Zimbio has a few more…
Today, a couple of videos have come out with Natalie as one of the protagonists. The first is the full actress roundtable for The Hollywood Reporter (so far we had only seen fragments):
… and the second video belongs to the recent meeting of actresses for the Vanity Fair Hollywood special issue, where we can discover who do Emma Stone or Natalie Portman respect the most:
Well… as predicted by all the pools in recent weeks, Natalie didn’t win the SAG award for best actress (it was Emma Stone who prevailed in the category at the end). Anyway, the ceremony leaves us images and videos of a splendid Natalie on the red carpet. Here are a few of them:
Vanity Fair is publishing in its instagram account some great behind the scenes photos & videos from the special Hollywood issue. Here are a couple of them with a stunning Natalie:
I don’t usually refer to this kind of sad events in the blog (in the end this is a fan page), but I think this deserves it, for very special reasons…
British legendary actor John Hurt, whose death was announced yesterday, appeared in more than 200 films and TV series during his distinguished career. Alien, 10 Rillington Place, Midnight Express, Heaven´s Gate, The Elephant Man, 1984, Rob Roy, Contact, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone… these are just some of his most remembered films. He worked with Natalie in two of them: V for Vendetta and his latest film released, Jackie.
He was an incredible actor, with an extraordinary capacity to take over the characters he played. A legend… there is no doubt about it.
John was invincible. Unflinching. Eternal.
Edit: Natalie also paid tribute to the ‘Jackie’ co-star…
I’m so extremely sad to hear of John’s passing,” Portman said. “I was lucky enough to make two films with him — both of which were taken to the next level because of his performances. He was the most talented actor, and also a deeply good and funny and poetic and smart and warm human being. I send my love to his family at this terrible time, and join his fans in watching his films that we are lucky enough to have forever
Rest In Peace. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends in these sad moments…
Vanity Fair has published its already classic Hollywood special issue. This year Natalie, Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Janelle Monáe, Dakota Johnson, Elle & Dakota Fanning, Ruth Negga, Aja Naomi King, Greta Gerwig and Lupita Nyong’o are in the cover. Here we have the photos of her in the Portfolio and a behind the scenes video:
Jackie will be released in different European countries between January and February. As a result, more advertising material is emerging. Here we have a couple of new video clips from German and Italian distributors, which reflect two great scenes of the movie. Obviously, for those who have not seen the film yet may be too revealing, so… carefully 🙂
The predictions have been fulfilled: Natalie has achieved her third Academy Award nomination for her role in Jackie. The film by Pablo Larrain has got two other nominations: best music for Mica Levi, and best costumes for Madeline Fontaine. The ceremony will be held on February 26 and it will hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
Natalie and Pablo Larrain attended another special screening of Jackie tonight, sponsored by LA Times in its The Envelope Series. Here we have a instagram photo of the Q&A later…
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung interviewed Natalie on the occasion of Jackie’s upcoming release in Germany. This was done during the press junket at the Peninsula Hotel a couple of months ago (just after the American presidential elections), so the questions about Pablo Larrain’s film are complemented with those related to Natalie’s support for the Clinton campaign in November. Here are some interesting quotes, translated from German. Thanks to our friendly German fans, and Arvid in particular:
About her language skills:
Mrs. Portman, in Wikipedia we can read that you speak German…
Unfortunately, this is not true. I can only use a few words, so probably most people.
But is it true that you speak French and Hebrew?
Yes, my French is also very flawed. At home we speak English.
Unfortunately, photos from this event are scarce right now, but thanks to The Daily Mail, we have some of Natalie attending the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Conversations With Jackie at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Screening Room in Los Angeles on Friday. You can view a larger (albeit watermarked) gallery over at Getty Images.
Natalie has joined with many other celebrities, and hundreds of thousands of people, in the Women’s March that are being celebrated in different cities around the country today. Washington D.C., New York or Los Angeles are just some of them. Natalie has attended the March in LA, in which 750000 people have participated, according to organizers. The LA Times has a complete coverage of the massive event in this city, here we have some great photos of the march around the country, and Daily Mail has several photos and videos centered on the celebrity attendees.
Update: Natalie also gave a short, inspirational speech during the march. here it is:
