Palm Springs Round Up

I’ve going to be a jam packed news day of catching up so let’s jump right in with some news items from Natalie’s Palm Springs International Film Festival appearance.

There’s no better place to start with than (a part) of Natalie’s acceptance speech. The bit about Ben was all sorts of “awwwwwww”.

We’ve got a lot more after the jump.

Now we’ve got a really cute ET interview with Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie.

Next up is a clip of Natalie being interviewed at the event.

Enough with the vids, here are some articles.

Jake, who People claim is Natalie’s ex, had some really nice and funny things to say about Natalie.

“Natalie is the Audrey Hepburn of our generation,” the actor says, “She is elegant, graceful, has amazing eyebrows … is talented, really short, funny, smart, dedicated, incredibly kind.”

But despite her attempts to prove otherwise, no one is perfect, and with Portman’s fiancé, Benjamin Millepied looking, – and laughing – along, Gyllenhaal eventually got around to the “flaws” of the this award season’s it girl.

“She’s a vegan, which makes it really frustrating when you’re picking a place to eat,” Gyllenhaal said with a laugh, before adding, “She’s also recently announced that she’s going to be a mom, and her child will probably need therapy after seeing Black Swan.”

While we’re spreading the love, Natalie had some comments for her Goya’s Ghosts co-star, Javier Bardem.

Natalie Portman, calling Bardem ‘the best actor of our time’, said he would be ‘the best’ in his new role as dad and husband.

And finally, here’s a small portion of Jake’s introduction of Natalie. In it he explains how he first came to meet Natalie and why he’s so invested in her winning Best Actress.
