Thank you for your patience as we tried out this new theme on natalieportman.co. In a day or two, we will be moving this new design to natalieportman.com.
Hopefully, everything will go smoothly, but you never know so be sure to keep this page bookmarked as a backup.
It’s just been announced that Felicity Jones (Star Wars: Rogue One) is replacing Natalie on the Ruth Bader Ginsburg project, On the Basis of Sex. It films in September with Mimi Leder directing. So far there’s no explanation for why Natalie has left the project.
I really love Leder’s work on The Leftovers so I’m a bit disappointed. That said, I’m also not a big biopic fan so…
But what do you think?
The Miss Dior event in Shanghai revealed the first look at Natalie’s upcoming campaign and now we have the best look at that incredibly sexy image.
We’ve got another wallpaper calendar from Ana to get our desktops in the right mood for July. We’re in need of some new graphic artists to create calendar wallpapers. So drop me a line on our Facebook page or Instagram if you want to help out. If not, this could be the last wallpaper…so enjoy it 😛
I came to Song to Song from a bit of a strange place. I adore a lot of Terrence Malick’s earlier films – sure, they will often frustrate, but they are also capable of moments of beauty that transcend the form.
But Malick’s last two films, To the Wonder and Knight of Cups (with Natalie), left me mostly frustrated and cold. What used to feel poetic now felt unfocused and forced. What used to leave a deep impression now felt shallow.
Song to Song doesn’t quite get back to making me feel how I did about his earlier work, but there are moments that reminded me of those films. Don’t get me wrong, I still wouldn’t recommend this film to anyone. It’s going to be maddening for anyone looking for a narrative to hold onto. But in the music, tragedy and striking images, there was enough for me to remain engaged throughout. Read More
I suppose it’s fitting to welcome everyone to the new site theme. If you’re here you probably saw the announcement on natalieportman.com, but if you missed it we are basically testing the new theme here at natalieportman.co until everything is performing perfectly. Then we’ll transfer back to .com and hopefully the performance of the site will be improved.
We’ve already dealt with a bug where some browsers were seeing blank white pages instead of news updates. Hopefully, nobody is experiencing that anymore. If you do spot any bugs please let us know in the comments and we’ll do our best to solve them ASAP.
And then there was one. The final Charlie Awards category is to vote for the overall rating of the year. We actually had some films for a change, which is good, but not all of them were special, which is bad. Did you feel rewarded as a Natalie fan or let down?
My plan to have the Charlie Awards become an all year event is working out pretty well, I feel ;-P
Just 3 categories left, starting with Best Natalie News of 2016.
Total Voters: 213

The Charlies switches to Best Drawing. There wasn’t a ton of Natalie drawings in 2016 (2015 was a bumper year) but there was still some fine work to fill out the category. Happy voting!

So, last week we hit 150k followers on our Facebook page.
And I just launched our Instagram account.
We have slightly less followers on there. Let’s fix that.
And a newsletter is coming.
And maybe some vids and designs and comics.
Belero is rocking the news and I’m hoping to carve out the time to rock some extra fun content. Let’s see where this goes.
The Charlie Awards continues today with one of my favourite categories: Best Wallpaper. It’s always great to see those who contribute to the site (some for years and years) get their recognition. Take a closer look at the full wallpapers and then vote away!

Well that was unexpected. Just days before giving birth to Amalia, Natalie filmed a music video for James Blake. In my opinion, this is easily her best music video appearance. Really beautiful.
