Yesterday, individuals all over the U.S. country walked out of their schools and workplaces in support of survivors, and specifically in support of Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, who have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. The activists were joined by many celebrities, some of them came out with placards on the streets, while others made statements in their social networks. Natalie was one of them:
Natalie attended several press junkets with Jacob Tremblay last weekend. We had seen a couple of videos, but now Natalie has shared on her Instagram a great photo taken at the Variety Studio:
Vox Lux TIFF screening has recently ended, and we have the first photos and reactions of the attending public. Everyone unanimously praises Natalie’s performance in the film:
Yesterday was a great day for any Natalie fan to be pride of it. A well received film, Another great Natalie´s performance… and a lot of excellent photos to enjoy our favorite actress. In this post we will recall some of the charming behind-the-scenes moments of the premiere:
A few weeks ago we saw an advance of the new Dior Rouge campaign. Today we can see another batch of “stolen” photos from the Dior Makeup instagram. Here they are:
The campaign will be officially launched on August 27.
A couple of Vox Lux tidbits to end this intense week, full of great news…
-Natalie confirmed on instagram that she will attend the premiere of Brady Corbet’s film in Venice, recalling her first appearance at the film festival, with Black Swan in 2010:
It seems that Benjamin has choreographed the last ten minutes of the movie, in what promises to be a great musical number, along with the songs by Sia, composed specifically for the film:
A new Dior Ultra Rouge lipstick campaign is coming, and we have a couple of stunning photos and a video (via @Padme.Natalie):

It seems Natalie has joined to nationwide protests across the US over the Trump administration’s strict migrant policy. People across many major towns and cities in the US have been urged to gather under the slogan #familiesbelongtogether. No pictures of Natalie so far, but W Magazine has several photos of the people who are participating in the marches this Saturday.
We need more than one judge’s order to end this crisis – we need action by this Administration and this Congress to reunify all children with their families as quickly as possible and end the policy of dehumanizing families who are only seeking safety out of fear for their lives. Find a march near you this Saturday, June 30 and hold this Administration accountable for the humanitarian crisis it created. Link in bio. #FamiliesBelongTogether
While waiting for the shoot of Pale Blue Dot to start in a few weeks, we have some tidbits today …
-According to this article from gossip website The Blast, Natalie has pulled out of a deal to acquire the television rights of the Israeli best-selling book “Harpoon” at the last minute because of the controversy surrounding Natalie’s choice to turn down attending the Genesis Prize ceremony.
Apparently, Natalie is in the ResearchGate Webpage, under her real name. This is a social networking site for scientists and researchers to share papers, ask and answer questions, and find collaborators. It is probably the largest academic social network in terms of active users right now. Thanks to Daniella Neasa for the find.
-Finally, Natalie shared on instagram last Thursday one of her most remembered phrases in the Star Wars prequels:
One more day, Natalie continues to attend screenings of the documentary produced by her. On this occasion, we have a couple of instagram posts of her appearance at the Landmark Theater in Los Angeles:
Had a great time seeing @natalieportman (Narrator/Executive producer) and Director Christopher Dillon Quinn at the Q&A discussion after watching the free screening of @eatinganimals coordinated by @campus_circle and @ltlosangeles. Felt nice to meet some people that were able to sit down and discuss the complexities of my favorite topic: food. #food #eatinganimals #animals #foodindustry #screening #movie #nofilter #moviescreening #losangeles #socal #cinema #qanda #questionsandanswers #meat #freescreening #campuscircle #natalieportman #stressrelief #vegan #foodindustry #animalabuse #discussion #rsvp #la #california #cali

It seems that a first cut of Vox Lux is ready, and Gary Michael Walters, one of the producers of the film, has already seen it, and posted this message in his Instagram account today:
Does this mean that we will see the movie at the fall festivals? Hopefully it will be like that…
Natalie had her first public appearance at the Boston Calling Music Festival this afternoon, and we have the first pictures of her, hosting a performance: one of the first surrealist films (La Coquille et le Clergyman), with live score by ACME:
Natalie arrived in Boston today to attend the Boston Calling Festival, and her first appearance was at the Brattle Theatre this night, introducing the final film in her “Female Gaze” film series, which is part of the festival that kicks off Friday at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston. These are a few photos (and a video) of the event:
Edit: one more photo added.

Happy Mother’s Day to all Natalie fans…
My mother is the most loving, kindest, most intelligent, most creative, funniest, strongest, most fun woman I know. I’m so grateful to her everyday for loving me, protecting me, helping me in every way she can, and giving me the best example of how to be a good person up close (and for letting me alter this gorgeous dress she wore to the #Oscars and wear it to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner). To all the mothers out there, enjoy your day off — oh wait, you don’t get a day off! #mothersday
It’s been a very quiet week in Natland, without great news or photos, but even so, we have a few Tidbits:
-The next public appearance of Natalie will be at the Boston Calling festival in just two weeks. We knew that she will present a mini Film Festival, with the screening of seven films with a common denominator: the representation of “female gaze” in cinema. Today we have known that Natalie will also curate and host a series of special programming at the Arena Stage during the three days of the festival.
–Vox Lux is the last film shot by Natalie a few weeks ago. With the movie still in post production, today it has been announced that Vision Film has achieved distribution rights in China, in the market of the Cannes Festival. Hopefully we can see the film in the fall season…
-Speaking of Cannes, which is being held these days in France, Natalie remembered her attendance, as part of the festival jury in 2008, on her Instagram account:
Today is the “Star Wars Day”, and Natalie has celebrated it by posting an instagram photo of her last appearance on Saturday Night Live:
… What better occasion to remember that great second rap video, this time in an uncensored version:
