Natalie Portman signs on play Jacqueline Kennedy in new bio-pic: yay or nay?
Fresh off the news that Natalie Portman would deign to play the Notorious RBG, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it seems that Portman is going to play yet another iconic American woman: Jacqueline Kennedy. COME ON. To be fair, the Kennedy women ? Jackie in particular ? have been portrayed in films and TV projects alike. I actually thought Jill Hennessy came the closest to looking like Jackie (it was a TV movie). I used to have a Jackie obsession and I read a lot of her biographies, and she definitely had a fascinating and film-worthy life. But Natalie Portman? I?m so not feeling it. And the project will reunite Portman with Darren Aronofsky (side-eye).

Natalie Portman will star as Jackie Kennedy in ?Jackie,? about the first four days in Jackie Kennedy?s life after the assassination of her husband, President John. F. Kennedy, when she lost the love of her life but won the love of a nation. Darren Aronofsky will produce while Pablo Larrain (?No?) directs.

Juan de Dios Larrain of Chile?s Fabula produces with Aronofsky and his partner Scott Franklin at Protozoa Pictures. ?Jackie? goes into production at the end of 2015.

? ?Jackie? talks about the days when Jackie Kennedy becomes an icon but has lost everything,? said Wild Bunch?s Vincent Maraval, who is overseeing Insiders. Aronofsky, who was president of the Berlin festival jury this year, was highly impressed with Larrain?s Berlinale competition entry ?The Club,? which went on to win the fest?s Grand Jury Prize. Portman caught ?The Club? in Paris, and loved it. ?It?s the ?Black Swan? team reunited for Pablo Larrain,? Maraval said.

[From Variety]

??About the days when Jackie Kennedy becomes an icon but has lost everything?? So it will be about the years days immediately following JFK?s assassination. That’s sort of interesting. The years following the assassination have always been difficult for biographers to cover, mostly because it?s widely believed that Jackie was carrying on an affair with Robert Kennedy ? they were united in grief and then some. It?s widely believed that RFK did not approve of Aristotle Onassis?s attempts to woo Jackie, and Jackie only decided to marry Onassis after RFK was murdered. As I said, it?s a rich, complicated story with a lot of potential for a filmmaker. But I?m worried that this version with woman-child Portman as Jackie will end up just a Lifetime-esque sob story about a devastated widow struggling through shock.

Natalie Portman in Dior for the Cannes Opening Night: boring, basic or beautiful?
More photos from last night?s Cannes Film Festival Opening Night festivities. So many fashion girls! So little time. Let?s start with Natalie Portman in this utterly boring Dior. Natalie is going to premiere her directorial debut film at Cannes (out of competition), so perhaps she?s saving a really show-stopping look for her own premiere. Or maybe she really is THIS boring. I mean, I understand the desire to wear red. Most women can find a shade of red that works for them, and it?s a big red carpet so why not go bright? But think of how much this would have popped if the Dior was more of a burgundy? Right? Natalie?s husband Benjamin doesn?t look well either ? I blame the bad haircut.

Karlie Kloss in Versace. It looked like a dress from the back, but from the front? it?s just a mess. Random belts and buckles, bandeau bikini top and one pant leg. Is this fashion-forward or just stupid?

Doutzen Kroes wore Versace as well. I love her so much, so obviously, I like this dress. It?s sexy and va-va-voom, although Doutzen could be sexy in a burlap bag.

Sienna Miller in Lanvin for the opening night. I feel like this was really safe ? I mean, a Lanvin in navy and black? And she borrowed Laura Bush?s hairstylist too. It?s like she?s really trying to do a ?conservative makeunder.?

Fan Bingbing in Ralph & Russo. I really like this. I know it?s very ?fancy? and princessy, but I still like it.

Liya Kebede in Louis Vuitton. Liya always does minidresses in Cannes. I don?t really get it. I hate this dress too. THE SLEEVES. Ugh.

Isabella Rossellini in Stella McCartney. THIS is how you do a cape. And of all the women deserving of a cape, Isabella is SO WORTHY.

Natalie Portman signs on to play Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: good or bad call?

Natalie Portman signs on to play Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: good or bad call?
I?m a big fan of the Notorious RBG, also known as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. President Clinton nominated RBG to the Supreme Court back in 1993 and since then, she?s become the Liberal Conscience of the court. Feminists and fans gave her the affectionate nickname The Notorious RBG (which she loves, by the way) because she has no f?ks to give and she takes principled, well-reasoned liberal stances on a host of issues before the court. RBG is also 82 years old and refusing to retire, despite some calls for her to step down while a Democrat holds the White House. She has repeatedly said that she still feels vital and that she will not be retiring during Pres. Obama?s tenure.

Why this background information? Well, someone in Hollywood thinks it would be a good idea to make a bio-pic about a sitting Supreme Court Justice. And someone wants Natalie Portman to play the Notorious RBG.

Natalie Portman is set to play Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in On The Basis Of Sex, with Marielle Heller (The Diary Of A Teenage Girl) in negotiations to direct. Focus Features is in talks to come onboard to finance. The script, which follows the travails of Ginsburg as she faced numerous obstacles to her fight for equal rights throughout her career, was written by Daniel Stiepleman and made the 2014 Black List. Robert W. Cort is producing with Ram Bergman exec producing.

Ginsberg was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by then-President Clinton, becoming only the second female justice (after Sandra Day O?Connor) and the first Jewish female justice. Prior to that, she developed a reputation as a keen advocate for the advancement of women?s rights. Time magazine this year labeled her an ?Icon? in its Time 100. The classy project is coming together quickly with a hoped-for production start by the end of the year. That would put it ahead of Alex Garland?s sci-fi project Annihilation, for which Portman has been rumored.

[From Deadline]

On one side, we always complain that Hollywood doesn?t make enough movies about strong women, about political women, about women who fight for what they believe in. On the other side? this sounds like it could end up doing a great disservice to RBG. It sounds like it could definitely veer into some Lifetime-esque drama. I?m guessing that, considering Portman?s age, this would only be focused on RBG?s pre-Supreme Court days, like back in the 1960s and ?70s. Which also means that the whole thing could read like Mad Men-without-the-ennui. I don?t know, maybe it?s because Portman is attached to it, but I?m really not feeling this.

Natalie Portman Fronts May 15th Issue of The Hollywood Reporter
She?s not your typical Oscar-winning actress, and Natalie Portman told The Hollywood Reporter that she doesn?t even keep her Academy Award for Best Actress (?Black Swan?) on display at her home.

In her cover story for the May 15th issue, the ?Garden State? gal explains, ?The statues are literally like gold men. This is literally worshiping gold idols- if you worship it. That?s why it?s not displayed on the wall. It?s a false idol.?

And of her marriage to Benjamin Millepied, Natalie notes, ?The disappointments are always in myself. When you?re faced day to day with someone looking at you, it?s like a mirror that you have to yourself, and you can see your own good behavior and bad behavior. And it?s a beautiful challenge to be the best person in the mirror that you can be. I mean, I don?t beat myself up over it, but I?m not always as generous as I feel like I could be.?

Natalie Portman on her Oscar: 'This is lit­er­ally worshipping gold idols'

Natalie Portman on her Oscar: 'This is lit­er­ally worshipping gold idols'
I have such mixed feelings about Natalie Portman?s THR cover interview. On one side, she?s a pretentious, humorless ass. On the other side? I feel like THR asked her a lot of unnecessary questions about politics, the Jewish people, Israel and Charlie Hebdo and she didn?t really get a chance to show off a lighter side. THR?s justification, I suppose, for their line of questioning is that she?s promoting a film she directed, set and filmed in Israel, and she?s an Israeli-born woman who now lives in France (where anti-Semitic hate crimes are on the rise). The interview is actually pretty epic, so if you?d like to parse every word, go here for the full piece. Some highlights:

On Benjamin Netanyahu: “I’m very much against Netanyahu. Against. I am very, very upset and disappointed that he was re-elected. I find his racist comments horrific. However, I don’t ? what I want to make sure is, I don’t want to use my platform [the wrong way]. I feel like there’s some people who become prominent, and then it’s out in the foreign press. You know, sh-t on Israel. I do not. I don’t want to do that.”

Forgiving John Galliano after his anti-Semitic rant: “I don’t see why not to be forgiving to someone who is, I mean, someone who’s trying to change. However, I don’t think those comments are ever OK. I don’t forgive the comments, but ? we’ve all done things that we regret.”

Her marriage to Benjamin Millepied: “The disappointments are always in myself, and like, when you’re faced day to day with someone looking at you, it’s like a mirror that you have to yourself, and you can see your own good behavior and bad behavior. And it’s a beautiful challenge to be the best person in the mirror that you can be. I mean, I don’t beat myself up over it, but I’m not always as generous as I feel like I could be.”

Whether she?s nervous about being Jewish in Paris. “Yes, but I’d feel nervous being a black man in this country. I’d feel nervous being a Muslim in many places.”

Living in France now: “I’ve been to Paris so much in my life that I felt [at first] like it’s very similar, and then when you live in a place, you start realizing how culturally different we are, deeply culturally different? in millions of ways. I feel like this country has a lot of religion and a lot of freedom around that; and there, the religion is almost like love. Love and intellectualism is their sort of way. I love that people at dinner want to have a serious conversation ? and only a serious conversation. They’ll be upset if you don’t have something interesting happen. I love that my kid wants to go to art museums after school ? like, ‘Take me to the Pompidou.’ I love that it’s also not elitist, as it is in New York. You can afford to go to the philharmonic or the opera much more easily because all of it’s subsidized. And there’s a huge culture of cinema there.”

She was in Kenya during the Charlie Hebdo attack: “I went to visit a school that we actually helped build with Dior that was an all-girls school in Kenya, like the first girls’ secondary school in the area. Someone I was with was looking at the news and said, ‘Oh my God! There were just attacks in Paris.’ ” Was she shaken by the killings? She looks at me directly and stops twirling that metal stick. “Listen,” she says. “I’m from Israel.”

Her Best Actress Oscar: “I don’t know where it is. I think it’s in the safe or something. I don’t know. I haven’t seen it in a while. I mean, Darren [Aronofsky] actually said to me something when we were in that whole thing that resonated so deeply. I was reading the story of Abraham to my child and talking about, like, not worshipping false idols. And this is literally like gold men. This is literally worshipping gold idols ? if you worship it. That’s why it’s not displayed on the wall. It’s a false idol.”

[From The Hollywood Reporter]

Her lack of interest in her Oscar is? interesting. Especially given that she hustled SO HARD for that little gold idol back in 2011. She was doing and saying everything she could to win that Oscar. And after she won, we found out that she and the Black Swan team pretty much lied the whole time so Natalie could win. Sarah Leal, the real ballerina/body double in Black Swan, came out after Portman?s win to basically say that it was her (Leal?s) body used in many of the ballet scenes and that Natalie wanted everyone to think that she had become this world-class ballerina in just 18 months. Portman?s Oscar win will always have an asterick beside it (for me) and I can?t believe she went through all of that to diss her Oscar.

Incidentally, in the midst of all of that political discussion, Natalie did briefly discuss the massive clusterwhoops of Jane Got a Gun, where the director and several actors all left the project within a week of the start date. Natalie plays coy with what really happened, saying that she got there ?one week before we were supposed to start.? What THR didn?t press her on was the fact that she?s a producer on the film and isn?t it strange that she just showed up a week before the production began and she only had like one meeting with Lynne Ramsay, the director who quit? Isn?t much of the clusterwhoops ON NATALIE for poor management?

Natalie Portman on French style: 'No Parisian ever walks around in shorts'

Natalie Portman on French style: 'No Parisian ever walks around in shorts'
Natalie Portman is officially a Parisian now, I guess. That might explain why we?re rarely getting pap photos of her these days. Natalie?s husband Benjamin Millepied took a job as director of ballet at the Paris Opera, and they moved their family to Paris for a few years (at least). Natalie gave a new interview to the Wisconsin Gazette to promote her Miss Dior contract, and she ended up saying a few words about how much she loves Paris and how chic everyone is:

Her French destiny: ?I think it was destiny that brought me to live in France. My father named me Natalie as an homage to a song by (legendary French singer) Gilbert Bcaud. I shot my first film with French director Luc Besson. And now I?m living in Paris with my French husband and our son and immersing myself in the language and culture. It?s very inspiring to live in Paris, I feel very lucky.?

How her life has changed since moving to Paris: ?It?s so interesting to plunge into another culture and experience a different way of living. The city is so rich in terms of the architecture, the bookshops you find at every corner, the way everyone dresses so well. No Parisian ever walks around in shorts and even the children look very chic (laughs).

Is she fluent in French? ?It?s improved a lot and I?ve been taking lessons and studying as often as I can. I feel I?m getting to the point where I?m slowly becoming more comfortable speaking French and being fluent in the language. I?m hoping that one day I will be able to work in a French film and do the role in French. I would really love to be able to do that, and I?m very motivated to get to that level.

[From The Wisconsin Gazette]

She sounds happy. I?m a little bit surprised that she did uproot her family to go to Paris for Benjamin?s work, but then again, it IS Paris. It?s not like Benjamin took a job in Dullsville, Middle America. And I?m sure their son Aleph will benefit greatly from living in another country for years during his childhood.

As for this: ?Everyone dresses so well. No Parisian ever walks around in shorts and even the children look very chic.? Really? No Parisian ever wears shorts? I don?t wear shorts either but that?s mostly because I don?t have the legs for shorts. But there are high-fashion shorts by French designers, oui?

Natalie Portman Checks In at 'As We Were Dreaming' Premiere in Berlin
She?s always up for a good flick, and last night (February 9) Natalie Portman was in the house for a screening of ?As We Were Dreaming? at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.

Joined by festival director Dieter Kosslick and several other industry bigwigs, the ?Black Swan? beauty smiled for the cameras outside the Berlinale Palace ahead of the show.

And of course Natalie was dressed to the nines, sporting a Pink silk faille dress by Dior teamed with a pair of gold sandals. Portman has been wearing Dior almost exclusively during her time at the Berlin Film Festival.

Natalie Portman: 'Everyone thought I was a terrible actress' after 'star Wars'

Natalie Portman: 'Everyone thought I was a terrible actress' after 'star Wars'
Natalie Portman managed to transition rather well from child star to legitimate adult actress. I?ve always thought the big change Portman made in how she was perceived was when she did Closer in 2004, with Clive Owen, Jude Law and Julia Roberts. Natalie scored an Oscar nomination for her role as the stripper Jane, and after that, people saw her as adult AND a ?real actress.? She was directed by Mike Nichols in Closer, and he had already worked with her on a stage production of The Seagull. So, when Natalie was speaking about Nichols? death, she gave him credit for ?vouching? for her skills as an actress, especially after the wake of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.

The force of the second Star Wars trilogy was not strong for Natalie Portman career-wise, according to the Oscar-winning actress, one of the most popular in the world.

The 33-year-old played Padme / Queen Amidala, love interest of Anakin Skywalker, who later became Darth Vader, in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The films were released between 1999 and 2005 and served as prequels to the original series. While the newer movies made more than $2.5 billion worldwide, critics and scores of fans of the franchise were not as impressed with them.

Portman, a former child star, began her onscreen career more than five years before her Star Wars debut. In the summer of 2001, Portman also appeared with Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman in an adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s 19th century play The Seagull in New York City. Mike Nichols was the director and would go on to helm the 2004 film The Closer, which garnered Portman her first Oscar nomination. He died in November at age 83. Portman recently spoke to New York Magazine about her late friend.

“Star Wars [Episode I - The Phantom Menace] had come out around the time of Seagull, and everyone thought I was a horrible actress,” the outlet quoted her as saying. “I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade, and no director wanted to work with me.”

“Mike wrote a letter to Anthony Minghella and said, ‘Put her in Cold Mountain, I vouch for her,’” she added.

Portman starred in the director’s 2003 historical drama, which garnered fellow supporting actress Renee Zellweger her first Oscar. In 2005, the actress appeared in V For Vendetta, a political thriller that made $132 million worldwide and was penned by screenwriter siblings Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski. Portman shaved her head for the film, marking the first out of two times she would transform her look for a movie.

[From E! News]

??Everyone thought I was a horrible actress?? She says that like it?s untrue. I mean, Natalie is a decent-to-good actress, but let?s not pretend that Star Wars was her greatest acting triumph, you know? People didn?t want to work with her legitimately, because they didn?t know if she was going to be able to pull it off. But it?s nice that Nichols vouched for her and talked her up to other directors. Nichols was such a mensch.

Natalie Portman steps out in Dior for a charity event in LA: cute or poorly styled?

Natalie Portman steps out in Dior for a charity event in LA: cute or poorly styled?
Here are some increasingly rare photos of Natalie Portman out with her husband Benjamin Millepied at the gala for the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The event was called ?Noche De Ninos? or Night of the Children. It feels like it?s been a really, really long time since we?ve even talked about Portman, much less seen her on a red carpet. She made the promotional rounds last year for Thor: The Dark Loki, and we talked a lot about that clusterwhoops that happened for Jane Got A Gun (which got pushed back for a February release), but she?s been very quiet this year.

Natalie wore Dior for this charity event. The gown sucks, right? Why is Dior using such cheap-looking satin? Part of the problem is how Natalie styled the gown and how she?s (not) working the gown. Her hair is too beachy and undone for a formal event and she looks super-uncomfortable. Benjamin looks? well, I?ve never been into him, but he looks nice, I guess.

There are some rumors that Benjamin and Natalie are trying for another baby. Aleph, their only child, is now three years old. Sources claim that Natalie and Benjamin have figured out their work-life balance and they think now is the time to add to their family. Plus, they?re living for the most part in Paris now, I guess.

I?m including more event photos below, of Maria Menounos, Teri Hatcher (why is she everywhere this weekend?) and Jamie Lee Curtis (she looks fantastic).
