34 years in the making….PORTMANIA 17
and it ends next Tuesday – Natalie Portman’s BIRTHDAY!
and PORTMANIA is the week long celebration where KINDNESS, EQUALITY and RATIONALITY rule.
EVERYONE KNOWS ALL OF THAT!
but what you may not know is that thousands of Natalie Portman fans go each year without PORTMANIA. because their internet SUCKS. What can you do to help these poor people?
…. click more to find out.
Portmania—our annual week-long celebration of our namesake’s birthday—is quickly approaching. It would be awesome if any of you Natalie fans out there can contribute fanworks to celebrate the occasion. You can contact us with any submissions via the embarrassingly outdated staff page. Hopefully, Dazza can dig up Sanjiro, who will count us down to the 9th of June.
A big thanks to Sanjiro for bringing the fun…crazy…crazy fun once again for us Natalie fans. I shall now ease you back to reality with some mini news items.
– First up, happy birthday to Benjamin. Sanjiro wished him yesterday but his birthday is actually today.
– Next up, actor Makran Khouri (Munich, with Natalie in Free Zone) talks a little about working with Natalie on A Tale Of Love And Darkness, and he’s not shy with the praise. Via google translate…
My experience with Natalie are wonderful. In this last film I play a small role, but I am very honored that I could share it with her. I can not even talk about it … but I can tell you that this is one very stylized film in which she will definitely leave a trace of directors. She is the kindest, most humble and the most sensitive director I had the luck to work.”
– Finally, here is the completed Portmania puzzle for those of you too lazy to work it out 😛
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO NATALIE PORTMAN!

so it’s finally that time of year again when Natalie Portman, the subject of our affection, turns a year older. and to celebrate we take a week off from what we were doing and say PORTMANIA a lot. it’s PORTMANIA XVI.
Is that right? XVI? can we just call it 16?
come inside and you can find out just what it is we do around here.
Portmania, our annual celebration of Natalie’s birthday, is sweet sixteen this year. Sanjiro is incredibly enough still alive, and will return on the 3rd to count us down to Natalie’s 33rd birthday on the 9th of June.
As always we are looking for fanart, drawings, songs, films, interpretive dance…basically anything to celebrate either Portmania or Natalie’s birthday. If you have something to contribute, find the staff page in the menu drop down and send me a mail.
what day is it?!
DAY 5 of PORTMANIA 15!! this will be an incredible day of wonder. I’ve gotten dressed for this. it’s that special and unique; it actually requires pants. i’m not lying.
DAY 5 is Natalie’s birthday and that’s today!!
and her momma!
and Johnny Depp!!
AND MICHAEL J. FOX.
not only have I put on pants. but socks and I have one shoe on. then I got lazy again.
so how do we celebrate Natalie’s 32nd birthday on the 15 PORTMANIA?
with FAN ART BY PEOPLE!!
Alright. first one is a team effort. Arsalan made the graphic, DAZZA had the idea to use the 32 as her mole and Rachel added the 32 to the picture.
and of course the next two are made by the greatest PORTMANIAN hero: Ana.
well! NOW i’m taking my shoe off.
That’s IT! PORTMANIA IS OVER! what an exciting week. we learned to stand up for ourselves. and our hearts grew. and we drank some water. PORTMANIA saves the day again. and I want to thank ana for EVERYTHING. and DAZZA for keeping NP.com alive! and Natalie for being born. happy birthday NATALIE PORTMAN.
and of course no one sent anything in still so it’s just gonna be me rambling on for three paragraphs and then Ana’s wallpaper.
so here is an interview i did with FAKE Natalie Portman.
ME: Natalie, what do you think of this lack of PORTMANIA fan art and activities?
Fake NP: i think it’s bullshit.
ME: at least Ana is making stuff.
Fake NP: right. i’m not really natalie portman, you know.
ME: yes, i know. Thanks for doing this interview. you can get back to delivering the mail now.
MAILMAN: Happy PORTMANIA!
Well, actually there will be something else… Adonis sends in this slideshow from the huffington post where you can see natalie from age 12 to 32 and it’s pretty great.
now for ANA’s fantastic fan art
and finally in the “more things change the more they stay the same” department:
i don’t know if anyone noticed the similarities before. but if not this was brought to you by PORTMANIA 15.
Tomorrow! is the last day of PORTMANIA and Natalie’s Birthday! I guess we can get through one more of these, RIGHT?!
crying in my PORTMANIA.
it’s time to WAKE UP and start the day! we’re on DAY 3.
today is also ALEPH’s birthday!?!
(NOT Natalie Portman’s child)
DAZZA tells me he’s pretty sure it’s today because Ben Millepied said today was it, but the internet says it’s next Friday. and sure, maybe Ben Millepied isn’t the best source for what day his son was born on, but we still think the internet is WRONG.
other birthdays today:
so how are we going to celebrate today?! with a VEGAN BIRTHDAY CAKE!! HOORAY.
and now, of course, the next wonderful art by Ana.
that’s it for today folks. it’s true. and now it’s time to go back to sleep. tomorrow is Saturday. and who knows what that could mean for PORTMANIA. historically Saturdays have been the most PORTMANIAN of all the PORTMANIA days. we shall see….!
it’s the never fun, always disappointing, slightly boring PORTMANIA 15 DAY 2
if this is your first PORTMANIA “Day Two” is just like “Day One” but it’s a day after. I think by “Day Four” you’ll get the hang of it. (day four is two days from now.)
TODAY the sun shines down and the birds sing. you get out of school early and your work closes down for the day. all the ice cream is free and Natalie Portman walks around the earth making the world NATALIEPORTMANIER. she does this by singing a song so sweet.
and then when you think the day couldn’t possibly get better, what with ice cream and Natalie singing, someone walks by and decides to mow your lawn for you!!!
HOW’S THAT FOR EXCITING?!?
alright guys let’s get to it.
Today Ana made this fantastic wallpaper out of THIN AIR… and a little bit of thick air.
and then Ana was like “UH-UH. I’ll do better than that!!” and made THIS Magnificent Wallpaper out of peanuts and old napkins.
I think Ana is gonna turn out to be the PORTMANIAN HERO of the Year!
time for a NATALIE PORTMAN FACT: (WARNING: Natalie FACTS may be closer than they appear)
Natalie FACT! the song Natalie sings to make the world more natalieportmanish is a song she wrote herself after she ate an apple. I think it goes something like “dum de dum dum da da dee dum dum”
something like that.
the apple was a MAGIC apple made with love and kindness. or she just washed it really good. whatever it was it inspired her to sing and so that guy mowed my lawn. HELL YEAH.
I think this is the end of day two. tomorrow is Friday and so it should be even better than Thursday, right? hopefully Ana will be back with more wallpapers and animated gifs and hopefully a few other people will start sending stuff in too!!! i’ll take anything, really.
PORTMANIA lasts FOREVER AND EVER!
Ladies and Gentlemen if I could have your attention for just ONE moment…. PORTMANIA is about to begin. please turn off all cell phones and leave your screaming children in the car because shit is about to get REAL…
Ana outdid herself with that animated gif….! which I thought was Japanese. but I was fooled….
anyway, アイリス, 菖蒲 PORTMANIA 15.
this week run of five days is PORTMANIA which is our yearly celebration to our devotion to NATALIE PORTMAN 勿忘草 who, as you know, is the star of Natalie Portman.com. it all ends up happening around her BIRTHDAY which will be SUNDAY. since she was born in 1981 that makes her 32. add those two numbers together you get 5. add 10 to that you get 15… and what PORTMANIA is this?!? PORTMANIA 15. not a coincidence!!!
it’s true I’ve done this 15 times now. hooray?
also this week we will celebrate the births of NATALIE’S MOTHER. NATALIE’S HUSBAND. NATALIE’S CHILD. and Johnny Depp.
that’s actually everything I have for today. the gif of Natalie falling down in flowers that’s not Japanese. made by Ana the Great. DAZZA says MORE WILL COME. and I believe him… DO YOU?
Tomorrow day two?! YES. PORTMANIA STRIKES BACK スイートピー
Portmania will officially kick off on Wednesday, with your regular host, Sanjiro. We are still very much in need of some fanart commemorating Natalie’s birthday, so if you have some skills, please mail me what you have.
Now onto some mini news items…
– I checked in with my source for Natalie news recently, hoping to get some clarity on a few projects brewing. Unfortunately I was total that there is nothing new to report regarding Jackie, In The Garden Of Beasts and Important Artifacts. I also tried to see if Jane Got A Gun had any release plans yet, but no, they’re still filming and things are still in the air. Sorry about that :-/
– Actress Theresa Palmer has spoken about her work on Knight Of Cups. There is no mention of Natalie, but her account of Malick’s process and what she was asked to do is definitely worth a read.
– Finally, Ming Choo found a tweet indicating that Natalie has been part of a new video for the Hadassah Children’s hospital. She has a long history of working with the hospital, such as this promotional video.
