LA Times published an article today about actors who have played singers in recent months. This is the quote on Natalie and Vox Lux:
Months before shooting began, she also recorded a selection of tracks written by Sia and singer-songwriter and producer Scott Walker — it was the first time she’d ever been called on to sing so extensively for a role.
The experience left her with newfound respect for hit-makers and performers. “Pop stars are this incredible force of nature,” Portman said. “There’s a mystery there, an internal force that propels them. It’s a really hard life. You watch any of these documentaries, and it is so much work. I think what [makes them such fascinating figures on screen] is that special charisma that everyone is attracted to combined with this unbelievable work ethic and then the very human toll it takes.”
Natalie and director Brady Corbet attended the screening of Vox Lux at the AFI Fest a couple of hours ago, and these are some pictures of the arrivals, and inside the theater, courtesy of Zimbio and Getty Images:
IndieWire published yesterday a short video interview, recorded during the Indiewire Honors last week, in which Natalie talks with Eric Kohn on the similar attention given to celebrities and ‘violent perpetrators’. Here is the video on YouTube:
Natalie, Jessica Alba, Judd Apatow, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Allison Janney, Jane Fonda, Chelsea Handler, Lil Rel Howery, Chelsea Handler, Charlize Theron, Adam Devine, Whitney Cummings, Connie Britton, Alyssa Milano, Nina Dobrev, Sophia Bush, Chris Redd, Lily Collins, Sean Hayes, Justin Theroux, Zoe Lister-Jones, Kevin Smith and Nick Kroll are just a few of the stars that came together for the Telethon for America on Monday. The initiative promotes voting ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm elections:
Natalie spoke about the importance of voting and pointed out women haven’t been able to vote for even 100 years.
As citizens, it is our duty to our country, communities, family and most importantly to ourselves to exercise our right to vote,” said Portman. “This is not a right to be taken for granted. Did you know that women in America have been voting for less than 100 years?
It seems that Natalie has been doing a Press Junket for Vox Lux this Monday. I guess we will soon see more photos and videos in the coming days. At the moment we only have a few instagram and Twitter images:
Natalie, Raffey Cassidy and Brady Corbet attended this morning “The Contenders”, an event organized by Deadline at DGA Theatre in LA, in which several films that are rumored for the awards season have been presented, and Vox Lux is one of them. These are the first photos (and video) of the appearance:
Natalie attended IndieWire Honors 2018 at No Name in Los Angeles this afternoon. She joined other event honorees as Charlize Theron, Alfonso Cuaron or Bill Hader. Just Jared and Zimbio have several photos from the red carpet:
Today the IndieWire Honors are presented, and we have another article in which the director of Vox Lux, Brady Corbet, praises Natalie:
I’ll spare everyone the details of how difficult it was to put such a film together, but needless to say, I eventually found my Gena Rowlands. I will also say that “Vox Lux” would not exist if not for Natalie’s participation and dedication, in that order. I’ve never worked with someone more prepared or daring.
The article also gives us the opportunity to see the first official “behind the scenes” still:
The IndieWire Honors are celebrated tomorrow, and as a result, the web page will publish a series of articles and interviews dedicated to the honored artists. Today we have the first of them, dedicated to Natalie, in which she explains how flawed movies made her more ambitious.
