A couple of tidbits to start the weekend…
–Vogue Australia has published today, via web, the interview included in the April edition of the magazine, made during Natalie’s visit to that country at the end of last year.
-It seems we have a new project for Natalie this year, but not as an actress yet. According to IMDB, she is the narrator of Dolphin Reef, a documentary produced by Disney that will be released in 2019.
Today is the day. Vox Lux opens in USA in a limited released, and more interviews are emerging. Entertainment Weekly caught up with Natalie to discuss her 10-day excursion into mainstream music, singing Sia’s songs, roughing it with Beyoncé’s backup dancers, and transforming into a fervent pop star on the edge.

Also “Wrapped Up”, one of the Sia´s Songs, has released Today. It´s available in Spotify, iTunes and Amazon. The full album will be released on December 14.
Natalie Portman graces the cover of the new Vanity Fair and on their site is a really nice long interview article with the actress, including photos from a new shoot.
Here’s a quote from the article from Vox Lux director, Brady Corbet.
Portman is “quite precise, thorough,” says Corbet. “I’ve been working for 20 years, so I can say with some conviction—Natalie is the best actor that I’ve ever worked with. It’s not hyperbole. It’s something really incredible when someone comes in and they color in the lines, but the color is denser and more vibrant than what you had initially imagined.”

Natalie’s attendance at the Toronto festival last week has given us countless interviews, photos and videos. Today is a good time to see some more that we have overlooked the last days…
–The Guardian published an interesting article/interview with Natalie a few days ago, on the occasion of the premiere of the films of Brady Corbet and Xavier Dolan in Toronto:
-LA Times has been covering the Toronto festival these days, and they interviewed Natalie and Brady Corbet in their studio last weekend. We have a video and a “Polaroid” photo of Natalie:
It seems that Natalie did a lot of interviews at the Toronto festival last week. This time we have one for Q on CBC, in which she analyzes in depth Vox Lux and all the themes of the film:
There have been some standout on-screen interviews with Natalie Portman in recent weeks, most of them very polished and professional. Today we have something a bit different – Aaron Fogelson managed to get Natalie to chat about a range of topics during her Boston Calling appearance.
It’s quite endearing thanks to the low-fi quality of the surroundings and Aaron looking like he’s having the best day of his life.
We have a couple of more video excerpts, belonging to Natalie’s interview for Today´s Show with Hoda Kobt, recorded at SiriusXM Studios. The full interview will air on June 25:
There are three days left for the North American release of Annihilation. The embargo of the written reviews will end tomorrow and there will be several advanced screenings throughout the country as well. While we wait for all this, we have a few tidbits…
Buzzfeed has an extensive interview with Natalie, in which she discusses Annihilation, Hollywood’s Time’s Up revolution, learning from Reese Witherspoon, and her regret over signing the Roman Polanski petition nine years ago:
You signed the Roman Polanski petition after he was arrested in Switzerland in 2009. How do you feel about that now?
NP: I very much regret it. I take responsibility for not thinking about it enough. Someone I respected gave it to me, and said, “I signed this. Will you too?” And I was like, sure. It was a mistake. The thing I feel like I gained from it is empathy towards people who have made mistakes. We lived in a different world, and that doesn’t excuse anything. But you can have your eyes opened and completely change the way you want to live. My eyes were not open.
–Film Journal has also an interesting interview with Natalie and director Alex Garland about the film.
-Finally, this tweet seems to indicate that Natalie has finally started to shoot Vox Lux.
