LA Times Entertainment Article

LA Times published an article today about actors who have played singers in recent months. This is the quote on Natalie and Vox Lux:

Months before shooting began, she also recorded a selection of tracks written by Sia and singer-songwriter and producer Scott Walker — it was the first time she’d ever been called on to sing so extensively for a role.

The experience left her with newfound respect for hit-makers and performers. “Pop stars are this incredible force of nature,” Portman said. “There’s a mystery there, an internal force that propels them. It’s a really hard life. You watch any of these documentaries, and it is so much work. I think what [makes them such fascinating figures on screen] is that special charisma that everyone is attracted to combined with this unbelievable work ethic and then the very human toll it takes.”

Natalie Portman x Wes Anderson

By | Nat-news | No Comments

One of my favourite Natalie films is, the short – Hotel Chevalier, which was part of The Darjeeling Limited. Darjeeling was one of Wes Anderson’s weaker films but Chevalier was gold!

I’m a huge fan of the director and have hoped they would reteam again. New reports suggest, it might be on the cards…

Wes is prepping a French musical with an eclectic cast, as usual. Tilda Swinton has just joined and now Natalie and Brad Pitt are two of the names being linked. You can read about it on The Playlist.

Today the IndieWire Honors are presented, and we have another article in which the director of Vox Lux, Brady Corbet, praises Natalie:

I’ll spare everyone the details of how difficult it was to put such a film together, but needless to say, I eventually found my Gena Rowlands. I will also say that “Vox Lux” would not exist if not for Natalie’s participation and dedication, in that order. I’ve never worked with someone more prepared or daring.

The article also gives us the opportunity to see the first official “behind the scenes” still:
