Gold Derby website has published a long video interview with Natalie, recorded during the press junket of Vox Lux at the Four Seasons hotel last week. It´s great, here it is:
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:

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.

Along with the Vanity Fair article there was also a video in which Natalie makes a quick review of her films. There are many movies missing (there is no mention of Annihilation, for example), but it is an interesting approximation to her career:
Natalie Portman graces the cover of the new Vanity Fair and on their site is a really nice long interview article with the actress, including photos from a new shoot.
Here’s a quote from the article from Vox Lux director, Brady Corbet.
Portman is “quite precise, thorough,” says Corbet. “I’ve been working for 20 years, so I can say with some conviction—Natalie is the best actor that I’ve ever worked with. It’s not hyperbole. It’s something really incredible when someone comes in and they color in the lines, but the color is denser and more vibrant than what you had initially imagined.”
