this modern love

By May 19, 2008Site-news


Nothing major has happened today so I’m going to take this opportunity to clear out the old inbox.

Let’s start off with some Cannes candids.

Starting off with Natalie and jury president, Sean Penn, thoroughly engaged in a conversation at the Vanity Fair party.

Next up are two cool looking shots of Natalie being escorted somewhere.

The 3rd and last set of candids is of Natalie and her new pooch. Yup, she took him to Cannes with her.

You can get a closer look at Natalie over here.

Thanks to Shoe89, Fanatical and Andrea.

Next up is something that really divided opinion on the forums. It’s a short essay on Modern Love, that took second place in a college essay contest. Natalie is the subject and…well, some people will think its really sweet while others might think its actually pretty creepy. Feel free to have your say in the comments section. Thanks to Tipper.

Okay, this is for the French speaking fans. It’s an account of meeting Natalie in Cannes. In brief, this female journalist was waiting for an elevator in her hotel. Also waiting was a kid, that looked about 10 years old, with a tiny dog (you know where this is going right? the kid is a zombie.). When the elevator arrived a bodyguard stepped out and it was clear that the “kid” had been waiting for him. It was then that the dog jumped on the lady journalist to which the kid apologized and at this moment the journalist realized she had been waiting with…Danny De Vito! I mean Natalie Portman!

Thanks to Donnie.

That’s it for now but I’ll be back with more tomorrow.

    I don’t get what’s so creepy about that. I’m thinking about much creepier things right now as I type this.

    Huh? The 10-year old kid was Natalie?

    Natalie has ways to disguise herself. remember her character padme somehow fooled everyone into thinking she was a handmaiden, but was a queen, and natalie’s using that in her life, making people think she’s a kid but is an actress.

    This is HILARIOUS! Poor Nat. I feel her pain. Actually it’s cool being mistaken for a kid or a teenager. I’m shoter than Natalie (yes, it is possible to be shorter than her!), about as petite as she is in frame, I’m a bit older than her…but I still get mistaken as a teenager on many occasions.

    so I’m pretty much going to look like a 5th year grader forever if I live abroad coz I’m short.

    Nothing creepy about the essay in regards to Natalie. In regards to the war though…
    As for her tiny size, I’ve read so much, and it’s so impossible to judge from the photos, that I’m dying to see her live. Somehow.
