Although the week is being splendid in terms of photographs and artwork, It remains very weak about Natalie news. While we await developments concerning her next projects, go with a small portion of tidbits.
SXSW film festival is taking place in Austin this week, and yesterday a documentary titled “Mr. Gaga” was premiered. Set in the world of dance, the documentary tells the story the titular director of the Batsheva Dance Company, and Natalie appears briefly in it. The Playlist has more details about it.
People have a few words of Natalie about how challenging it was to work alongside Christian Bale in Knight of Cups:
“Christian would do surprising things all the time. It’s fun to watch – and sometimes scary, like when he’s like diving off a dock into the ocean when you don’t expect it in the middle of a scene. But he also keeps everything feeling very alive and spontaneous. It was really a fun, unusual experience.”
“It’s got that complication to it,” Portman says of what drew her to the role. “Because in one sense [their relationship] has the most authentic love, but also it’s the most forbidden. So there’s this gentleness and a generosity between them, but it’s the wrong relationship to be having.”
More after the jump…
Finally, this week marks the tenth anniversary of the “V for Vendetta” USA release. Taking advantage of this, it never hurts to remember one of the most celebrated Natalie roles 🙂
