Natalie’s trip to Australia continues, and she and Benjamin visited yesterday Seville Estate, where they enjoyed a good wine (in good company). We have an Instagram picture of the moment:

The trip of Natalie and her family to Australia is showing us nice photos, like this one: Natalie visiting a zoo in Healesville Sanctuary, near Melbourne.
Only two weeks left for the North American release of Vox Lux, and promotional material is slowly emerging, like this new still of Natalie, characterized as Celeste in the film:
… And all fans who live near New York can visit an exhibition of costumes that Natalie wears in the film, located at the AMC theathers at Lincoln Square:
Natalie, Jessica Alba, Judd Apatow, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Allison Janney, Jane Fonda, Chelsea Handler, Lil Rel Howery, Chelsea Handler, Charlize Theron, Adam Devine, Whitney Cummings, Connie Britton, Alyssa Milano, Nina Dobrev, Sophia Bush, Chris Redd, Lily Collins, Sean Hayes, Justin Theroux, Zoe Lister-Jones, Kevin Smith and Nick Kroll are just a few of the stars that came together for the Telethon for America on Monday. The initiative promotes voting ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm elections:
Natalie spoke about the importance of voting and pointed out women haven’t been able to vote for even 100 years.
As citizens, it is our duty to our country, communities, family and most importantly to ourselves to exercise our right to vote,” said Portman. “This is not a right to be taken for granted. Did you know that women in America have been voting for less than 100 years?
It seems that Natalie has been doing a Press Junket for Vox Lux this Monday. I guess we will soon see more photos and videos in the coming days. At the moment we only have a few instagram and Twitter images:
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:
Natalie was in Texas yesterday, meeting with volunteers from the office of Beto O’Rourke, Democratic nominee for the Texas Senate in the upcoming elections. We only have an Instagram photo of the event at the moment:

Xavier Dolan´s film may not have had good reviews, but Vox Lux seems to have good prospects on the horizon. The purchase of the film by Neon is great news, and we probably have a release date (and a trailer) soon. Until then, images of these last days continue to emerge, like this wonderful photo of Natalie published by Vanity Fair Italy, taken just before attending the premiere of the film by Brady Corbet in the Venetian festival:
One of the many causes in which Natalie is involved is Families Belong Together, a movement that opposes the separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. Natalie showed her support for this movement by spending the morning with ACLU lawyer Ahilan Arulanantham at child immigration court in LA:
A new Dior Ultra Rouge lipstick campaign is coming, and we have a couple of stunning photos and a video (via @Padme.Natalie):
More after the jump:
What better to start the week than a few tidbits:
-Natalie is one of the 140 signatories (including Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Lena Dunham or Chadwick Boseman), of an open letter for Charity One, calling for action against gender inequality. The signatories call for a commitment to help every girl get an education and for leaders to use their power to deliver “historic changes for women.
–Annihilation opens on digital platforms in the US tomorrow, and Ultra HD, Blu-Ray & DVD next week. Slashfilm has a detailed explanation of the special features of the BD edition, and Collider has an exclusive clip.
-Finally, after the jump we have some images of Natalie this weekend:
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
Friday came with one funny theme this week, as celebrities took to their social media accounts to celebrate #OldHeadshotDay with some of their first photos in the business, and Natalie has joined in instagram with one of her best known photos of her childhood:
Hair styling Joanna Makoswki and makeup artist Shane Paish shared a photo with Natalie in their instagram accounts yesterday, in what seems a new photoshoot for some magazine or similar. Here it is:
On the occasion of an upcoming commemorative book next November, Marvel Studios has released a few new behind-the-scenes pictures included in it. Among them, there is one with Natalie as Jane Foster in Thor. Here it is:
According to Livekindly, Eating Animals, the documentary narrated and produced by Natalie, and based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, will release in US theaters on June 15. The film received high praises when premiered at the Telluride festival last September, and it reveals through intimate narratives what has happened to American country in the past 40 years as we have moved away from traditional farming communities to massive industrial farming complexes that produce a seemingly endless supply of so-called “cheap” meat, eggs, and dairy.
The 90th edition of the Academy Awards is being held today. Unfortunately Natalie will not attend the event, due to the shooting of Vox Lux in New York, but we can compensate by watching again her speech as best actress winner for Black Swan in 2011, which is , according to Entertainment Weekly, the eighth most watched acceptance speech in the history of the awards on YouTube, with 5,6 millions views:
