Harper’s Bazaar interview

By | Nat-news, News | One Comment

Natalie has given an interview to Harper’s Bazaar on the occasion of the release of the documentary “Eating Animals” in the United Kingdom next June, in which she denies dating Moby almost twenty years ago, talks on Harvey Weinstein’s case and Time’s Up, and what it means to be vegan for her:

On dating with Moby:

“I was surprised to hear that he characterised the very short time that I knew him as dating because my recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school,” Portman told us. “He said I was 20; I definitely wasn’t. I was a teenager. I had just turned 18. There was no fact checking from him or his publisher – it almost feels deliberate. That he used this story to sell his book was very disturbing to me. It wasn’t the case. There are many factual errors and inventions. I would have liked him or his publisher to reach out to fact check.”

Natalie Portman in Vanity Fair

By | Nat-news

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.”

New Harvard Interview

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.

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.
