The following is an account of a summer vacation (Hawaii) from a personal blog. As always, take with a pinch of salt.
The last day of the trip we returned to the first beach we went to, Hapuna. As we sat absorbing out last day at the beach before returning to the cold reality of Washington my brother exclaimed aloud, “That’s Natalie Portman!”
I looked over and sure enough there she was! The actress Natalie Portman. But to add to that I noticed she was with her folk rock star boyfriend Devendra Banhart. They were on a private lovers get a way and hanging out at the same beach as us! I couldn’t believe it. They went swimming in the ocean and me and Hal ran in and swam nearby. As Natalie Portman came in she waded past me and I blurted out awkwardly “Hey what’s up?”
She said “Heeeey,” back but implied “Hey bearded creep don’t drown me.”
I was heartbroken. She’s my number one all time favorite hottest most beautiful celebrity female and she thought I was creepy. Oh well.
As we left I waved to Devendra Banhart (who I’ve mentioned on this blog multiple times) and he gave me the old “You know who I am” salute.
My mom got photos of them making out, I thought about selling them to People magazine to help pay off my 40+ thousand dollars of student loans (thanks to the overpriced UPS MAT program), but my respect for both of them artistically prevented me from following through (and the photos were blurry hehe).
Now thats awkward.
