Jackie video interview

There is a total lack of news in Natland the past few days. So while we wait for events, here’s an old (but interesting) interview with Natalie, on the occasion of the premiere of Jackie a few months ago:

Song to Song interviews

Terrence Malick’s latest film has a limited release in Los Angeles and New York today, and as a result, Natalie has given a couple of interviews about the movie. Here they are:

Vulture: Natalie Portman on Working With Terrence Malick and Watching Michael Fassbender Get Tackled by the Red Hot Chili Peppers

What do you think it is that Malick brings that makes actors love working with him?

He really breaks down the ritual of filmmaking that we’re all used to. It frees you, in a way, when you go on to something else afterwards. You feel freer because he reminds you that all the rituals aren’t there for a reason, and that you can kind of break them whenever you want, whenever you feel like it. Because you’re always creating these moments in his films, you’re not just following a script and making what’s happening on the page. You have to invent more, and you take that into other projects, too. When you are going into a film that does have a script, you bring that spirit with you.

Metro: Natalie Portman gushes about the unusual Terrence Malick

Were there other kinds of material he gave you to get you into your character?

He provided me with a lot of information — incredible books and films. It was kind of an education as well. A lot of great Italian films, like [Federico Fellini’s] “Juliet of the Spirits” and “La Strada.” He gave me “Middlemarch,” which I’d never read before, and “Daniel Deronda.” So a lot of Italian films and a lot of Eliot.

So your character here is basically a Fellini character crossed with an Eliot hero?

Yeah. [chuckles] She thinks marrying can help her get out of this bad situation, sort of in a 19th century way. And then, of course, that gets her into a much more tragic situation.

Tidbits

By | Nat-news, News

 
Taking advantage of this impasse of big news, here goes a few tidbits…

-With the release of Jackie in several countries outside of the USA, many interviews in different newspapers and Magazines are appearing. Amo has found one of them in the English magazine “The Lady”, in which Natalie denies some of the topics about her life that are often read on some sites.

-It seems to be confirmed that Mimi Leder will be the next director of “On the Basis of Sex”, the long-delayed biopic about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It is not yet known when the movie will start filming, but it could be one of the projects that the actress approaches after her pregnancy. In her recent appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, she talked a little about the argument:

-Finally, someone has uploaded to YouTube a short Planetarium scene … and well, let’s say we had not seen anything like this since “Hotel Chevalier” 🙂

Video after the jump…

FAZ Interview

By | Nat-news, News

 
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.

The Sunday Times Interview

Natalie gave an interview for The Sunday Times‘s culture magazine this weekend, and while she essentially says nothing new that we have not read in other articles, there are some interesting quotes. The List collects some of them. Here are a few:

ST

About her “big roles”:

She seems quite unaffected by the prospect of an Oscar. When I venture that Jackie might be the biggest role of her career, she looks mildly surprised. “Oh thanks,” she mutters lightly. “I dunno, I can’t judge myself.”

When pressed, she will say that her greatest strength is her openness to failure. “I have done roles I have failed at — believe me, there are plenty of bad reviews out there.”
