Answering a few questions interview for NY Times, Natalie Portman talked about her acting beginnings, her dream job in the Jungle watching gorillas, her age, shaving her head, curly hair and death.
“Death scenes are not more difficult than other scenes. It’s much harder to laugh than cry. I find it so hard to fake laughing. I have no laugh except my own, and that laugh is very particular, very modern. It’s hard to make any other laugh sound real. It’s like sneezing: you really only have one sneeze.”
Is she, as predicted, as expected of, a new breed of Hollywood stars? When they’re all about red carpet, sunglasses, handbags, shoes, party all night, DUI, divorces, where does this discreet little lady fit in (true, she has a strange taste in shoes, but who cares now?)? A brilliant student who knew how to integrate eight theatrical representations in a week with full time high school and multiple tests in the same 24hours-a-day we all have.
Enough said, let’s take a look at the pictures, the main reason I decided to write this article. I already told you pictures with a message drive me more than so-called “fashion” pictures showing just things.
These Natalie Portman images captured by Raymond Meier bring her out of these times and put her into her own time, her own rules and her own world.
Do you think she’s representing the new “wave” refreshing the Red Carpet in intelligence most of all?
