And now for something completely different. It has come to light that Natalie’s presenting of the green Oscar award, at the Cinema for Peace ceremony in Berlin, came with a side-order of drama in the form of a group of individuals rushing the stage to protest fossil fuels and call for divestment in them. This was plan B, plan A apparently involved a satirical play with nudity, sex with a polar bear, and a chase through the audience.
I can’t say I wouldn’t have been interested in seeing that play out. Nevertheless, it’s hard to know what Natalie thought of it all but the group has offered an apology to Natalie for the stunt and seem genuine in their regret of how it all played out.
You can read the letter at ApologyToNataliePortman.com and below is their video of the evening. Skip to 55 seconds for Natalie’s brief and bewildered appearance.
Thanks to Belerofonte.
