Bumper Tidbits

Argh, struggling to keep up with Rachel AWOL and work stacking up, so let’s do a post that merges a bunch of items that could very well have made up their own posts.

– First up, Natalie was snapped filming a new Dior video in Paris on Tuesday. Based on this photo alone, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this will be the best commercial ever made.

Natalie Portman films Dior in Paris

– From Paris Natalie will of course be heading to TIFF in Toronto and it sounds like as soon as TIFF is over she will be straight back to Paris to film Planetarium (‘Le Soeurs Barlow’) for Rebecca Zlotowski. According to the casting call, the film will shoot from mid-September through to mid-November.

– Finally, moon-walking back to the TIFF mention where Natalie will be premiering A Tale of Love and Darkness, a new review for the film has arrived from The Jerusalem Post and it’s incredibly positive. They call the film “triumphant” and claim that Natalie gives her best ever performance.

Thanks to Amo, Belerofonte and Nina.

Where? Paris That’s Where.

Not much to post but for those fans that sleep better at night knowing where in the world Natalie is, it looks like she was spotted at Palais Royal today, although nobody but this tweeter noticed who she was. Thanks to Melody for the find.

Thanks to Kitten, edenLiao, Belerofonte, and Iktriad for the finds.

Natalie Smiles Through The Flashes

By | Nat-news

 
The Daily Mail has a video of Natalie and Benjamin posing for photos earlier in the day. It really must take some effort to remaining smiling and somewhat natural through all that commotion. Apologies, their embedded video player is HORRIFIC.

Thanks to Belerofonte.

Gallery Updates

We’ve updated the gallery with some more new photos of Natalie’s appearance at the Weizmann Institute 40th Anniversary Celebration, thanks to Just Jared. It’s a shame there aren’t more of these.

First Public Appearance

By | Featured-news, Nat-news | 5 Comments

 
That’s right, this is the first public appearance of 2015 for Natalie and Benjamin. The pair were positively beaming at the Pasteur Weizmann Institute dinner at Opera Garnier. I’m a big fan of this look (is her hair darker or is it just the lighting?) and think she looks absolutely fantastic. Check it out yourself by clicking the thumb below to go to Daily Mail’s report. Don’t put too much stock in the 2nd child mention or the Neta-lee birth name. They said the same BS three months ago.

Nat And Bat

A new candid of Natalie and Aleph (Ben was there too) has arrived to make me feel a bit silly about my Batman t-shirt. The photo was taken at Chez Ralph’s in Paris and was found by Aurore.

More candids from the weekend as Natalie exited a book store in Paris. Really cute set of photos if I do say so myself. Thanks to Kitten for the find.

Back in Paris

Natalie and family look to be back in Paris, where they were spotted out for a stroll this weekend (presumably on Halloween given Aleph’s attire). Thanks to Belerofonte for the find.

We’ve updated the gallery with some new-old candid photos of Natalie and family visiting apartments in Paris back in April. Please note that Aleph is visible in the photos. Thanks to HQ Utopia.

The Euro Focus Poll

By | Site-news

 
With the big news that Natalie will be focusing more on European films, it’s high time for that poll to see where her fans stand. Have fun!

As for the last poll, nothing too surprising in the results about Knight Of Cups. I just hope we can get confirmation and a trailer soon.

Changes

By | Featured-news, Nat-news | 54 Comments

 
This update contains some really big, Natalie world shifting news. However, at the same time, if we really think about it, this change has already occurred and we’ve experiencing it for awhile.

So let’s back up a bit. We know that Natalie has moved to Paris with her family. Given how little acting work she’s done since her Oscar win, and that she’s committed this year to completing her first feature film, we also know that her professional focus may have shifted. And it wasn’t that long ago that we heard she was looking for representation in Europe.

So the news that Natalie has joined premier French agency, Adéquat (is that name ironic?), should not be that big of a shock. What is a surprise is that Natalie is parting ways with long time business partner and manager, Aleen Keshishian. Aleen met Natalie when she auditioned for the Kirsten Dunst part in Interview With A Vampire, and soon after that became her manager. She has been with Natalie from day 1 and is responsible for among other things, Natalie taking on the name “Portman” instead of her birth name, and for taking a chance on SNL.

Natalie At The Ballet

By | Nat-news

 
As we expected, Natalie was in attendance for the opening of Benjamin’s ballet opera in Paris last night. This yields an appearance early on in a French TV video (although it looks like it was either earlier in the day or another day) as well as a few photos.

Another here and here.

Opera

By | Nat-news

 
As things are quiet for Natalie, at least publicly, no doubt she’s working hard on the edit of A Tale Of Love And Darkness, Benjamin is shuffling into the spotlight as director of the Opera ballet in Paris. The opening is tonight so hopefully we’ll get some Natalie sightings. If not, at least we have this new photo of the couple and Aleph. Thanks to Belerofonte and Kitten.
