Actors interviewing actors can be a lot of fun, like when Natalie was interviewed by Hugo Weaving (and vice versa) for V For Vendetta, or when she was joined by Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire for Brothers (really a must see). It’s also pretty cool when just text based, like when Natalie interviewed Ziyi Zhang for Interview Magazine.
Adding to the list will be an upcoming interview of Natalie by Tom Hiddleston. Can’t say what form it will take, but more than likely an upcoming Interview Magazine feature. Here is Tom mentioning it to The Huffington Post. Thanks to Belerofonte.
“Tom Hiddleston: I just recently did your job.
What do you mean?
Well, I mean I conducted an interview and had to transcribe it.
Transcribing is awful, right?
It’s the hardest thing in the world.
Who did you interview?
I was interviewing Natalie Portman.
Did you enjoy being on that side of it?
Very much so, yeah.
I liked listening. And I actually thought, I’d better do my research, like serious reporter. I went back and watched all of her films — and then you begin to see things differently I guess. The biggest thing I took away from it is actually the perception of the interviewee is a subjective thing. That’s what I realized. I realized how much it’s my particular view of Natalie. I can’t possibly be objective; I bring who I am to the table. And it made me realize, like, your interview with me is your interview with me.”
