I’ve been going through emails today and just felt I needed to share something with you.


I swear, 50% of the emails in the last week are about people wanting to write to her, speak to her, see her, date her, wash her car.

Anyway, if you head over to BoxOffice Mojo you’ll see that ROTS is absolutely tearing up the box office. I’m only going to be seeing it on tuesday but tomorrow I’ll be putting up an editorial and a poll to see what all of you think.

So, just a couple odds and ends to clean my slate again.

Melody is back from Cannes so hopefully the new galleries will be done properly soon.

Speaking of Cannes, Nat’s co-star in Free Zone, Hanna Laslo, won Best Actress at tonight’s award ceremony.

And Jeff Wells had this positive little Nat and Free Zone blurb in his latest column.

I never got around to writing anything about Amos Gitai’s Free Zone, which I found half-absorbing (it certainly isn’t the bad film that the Hollywood Reporter guy said it was). I loved the driving-through-Israel-and-Jordan footage, and Natalie Portman gives a performance that’s as grounded and filled out as she was in Closer.

Anna sent in a couple low quality pics that a friend of hers took at the German ROTS premiere. Click here, here and here.

Yeah, not the greatest but I like fan taken pics. To help ease the pain, here’s a Hi Res pic from the same event.

Christoffer has put one of his pencil portraits up on Ebay. If you’re interested, check it out here.

Here’s a little blurb about Nat’s Harvard film, Domino One. Thanks to Jesse.

Speaking from the nation’s capital this morning, U.S. Rep. John “Randy” Kuhl said he’ll be making room to catch “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.”

Kuhl noted one of his sons went to Harvard and is a close friend of one of the film’s stars, Natalie Portman.

“I have a special interest,” he said. “I know Natalie. She’s in a movie that my son produced that hasn’t quite grabbed the headlines that Star Wars III has produced.”

The congressman also mentioned he had a chance to view a special screening of the film at the Ronald Reagan building in Washington, D.C., but he was in charge of signing up House presiders.

“It didn’t fit into my schedule,” he said, “but I’ll get a chance. I’m not one of those people who needs to see it immediately.”

Ok, I think that’s about it for now.

Seeya tomorrow.
