Vogue Interview

By December 14, 2010Nat-news

Wow, its turning into Vogue day. The interview is now up on their site. I’m including an excerpt below but you can read the full piece over here.

Portman is in favor of vulgar. “There’s a difference between being in a bra and underpants as an object on a men’s-magazine cover and playing yourself—a woman with desires and needs who loves and laughs with her friends—in a bra and underpants. You become an object if you simply put it out there. Most movies are made by men, it’s totally natural that they’re going to present their worldview, so we’re trying to find more women who are writers and directors who are expressing their worldview. Did you see Tiny Furniture? Lena Dunham wrote, directed, and starred in it; she’s 23, and it is just amazing. She walks around in her underwear for the whole movie; it’s harsh. She’s the subject, she’s not the object, and it’s beautiful—that’s the kind of thing we need more of.”

    ,well she does have a point. most interesting love scene I ever read in a book was for Finn Mac Cool by Morgan Llywelyn (which is the easy way to spell the folk hero’s name)

    Wow that was a terribly written article. Very difficult to read and slow and tedious. Love the quotes though.

  • nextyearsgirl says:

    In the article, it says Natalie is a vegetarian at home and a vegan when out — I wonder if this means she’s switched to patronizing cruelty-free farms for her home, and veganism when she’s out since she can’t guarantee the treatment of the animals.

    BTW — what was the deal with the ‘walking around in my underwear’ motif?

    Seriously? She lays it out pretty clearly.
