Star Magazine has kicked up some rumours that Natalie will be involved in a remake of My Fair Lady, but Gossip Cop (great idea for a site BTW) is quick to shoot it down.
[STAR] has learned that Natalie Portman is campaigning to play Eliza Doolittle, the role immortalized by Audrey Hepburn” in the 1964 release. According to a so-called “source,” Portman “worships Audrey,” and has observed that her lack of vocal experience shouldn’t be a problem. “Natalie can’t sing,” says the source, “But she keeps pointing out that in the original movie, Audrey was dubbed.”
There might be a bigger obstacle, though. Despite Star’s supposed scoop, Portman has no interest in playing Doolittle.
A rep for the actress tells Gossip Cop the rumor is “not true.”
To borrow a phrase from My Fair Lady, “With a Little Bit of Luck”… someday Star will get casting news right.
