CNN Entertainment has made a series of short interviews called “Creator” to several actors, and Natalie is included among them. In this short video, she answers different questions about her career and her life:
And more tidbits to start the weekend:
-During the last two days the press has covered extensively the Natalie’s statements on the pay gap between actors and actresses in Marie Claire article. Ashton Kutcher, Natalie’s co-star in “No Strings Attached”, has also spoken about the issue by supporting her partner through his twitter account.
-A few months ago we learned that Natalie will collaborate with the Boston Calling Festival in a new film line-up, taking advantage of the fact that the Festival changes its headquarters to Harvard Athletic Complex. Yesterday the music line-up was revealed, and also we knew that Natalie’ s contribution will include a showcase of women-produced/directed films to be screened on the festival grounds at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. This year the events will be held between May 26 and 28.
-Today is the last day for AMPAS members to vote the nominees for the next Academy Awards, and we all hope Natalie will be among the best actress nominees for her performance in Jackie. Until we know the answer, here is a new featurette on the film titled “Legacy”:
Fox Searchlight continues releasing videos on different elements of Pablo Larrain´s film: photography, screenplay, performances … this time it´s a featurette focused on the Mica Levi´s music for the movie, which has recently been nominated for BAFTA awards. Here it is:
Waiting to see a trailer for Song to Song this week, here’s a new ration of Tidbits…
-In the last few hours, several media have echoed the statements that Natalie has made in the last issue of Marie Claire UK, on the disparity in wages between actors and actresses, setting the example of their salary in No Strings Attached, the comedy that starred opposite Ashton Kutcher in 2011. Here is the quote:
“Ashton Kutcher was paid three times as much as me on No Strings Attached. I knew and I went along with it because there’s this thing with ‘quotes’ in Hollywood,” she continued. “His [quote] was three times higher than mine, so they said he should get three times more. I wasn’t as pissed as I should have been. I mean, we get paid a lot, so it’s hard to complain, but the disparity is crazy.”
“Compared to men, in most professions, women make 80 cents to the dollar,” she continued. “In Hollywood, we are making 30 cents to the dollar.”
-It has gone unnoticed, but in the same interview Natalie also talked about the future Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s biopic. The article mentions Mimi Leder (Deep Impact, The Leftovers) as the new film”s director. Hopefully we will have more details about it in the near future…
-Here we have a funny video from W Magazine with lots of actors (including Natalie), trying to sing “I Will Survive”:
As a complement to the photoshoot we saw yesterday, W Magazine released today a short interview with Natalie about Jackie. The article is accompanied by a video belonging to the Screen Tests series, in which she talks about different anecdotes.

Taking advantage of this news break in Natland these last two days, we are going to collect some tidbits about the Pablo Larrain´s film.
-First of all, Natalie continues to receive several awards from various critics associations: Washington, Dallas, Chicago, Las Vegas, Phoenix Circle and Kansas are the associations that have given recognition to the work of Natalie in the movie so far.
–Fox 2 Channel has another of the many interviews that Natalie has given on the occasion of the premiere of Jackie, this time for Kevin’s Reel World:
–Rolling Stone has an interesting interview with Pablo Larrain on how faced the challenge of directing two very different biopics such as Jackie and Neruda.
-Noah Oppenheim, screenwriter of the film, talks in Variety on the Limits of Dramatic License in ‘Jackie’.
