The LA Times has a pretty nice write up about Natalie’s pregnancy and most interesting was their observation of, in hindsight, the first signs that Natalie was with child.
When we interviewed Portman in mid-November, she was not showing any signs of pregnancy. But she did allow that she hadn’t been feeling well. She said she had just recovered from a recent illness, which she said she suspected to be a case of food poisoning.
“I did a photo shoot, and I think it was whatever they served at lunch,” she explained, cautiously sipping from a bowl of vegetable broth. “I don’t even think I’m sick right now. I think I could probably eat anything, but I’m just like, an interview would not be the place to experiment.”
Portman also said at the interview that she had tried to conceal how ill she felt at the premiere the night before. “Yesterday, I was on the red carpet like, ‘Please don’t throw up.’ I went home after the red carpet last night and had a saltine and applesauce and was, like, asleep by 10.”
