The actress also gives quite and insightful interview, where she dishes on nudity and sex scenes in her movies. Read more and see photos and video here. http://nataliaportman.blogspot.com/
Natalie Portman is simply gorgeous, and she certainly doesn’t disappoint in any of her magazine photo spreads, and this one for Elle is definitely one of my favorites.
The actress stuns as she poses in a variety of high fashion designer clothing such as Chanel and Dolce and Gabbana. She also gave a very telling interview, in which Elle names “her most revealing interview.” Check out the full photo spread here. Here is a bit from her interview from New York Daily News:
“I’ve always tried to stay away from playing Jews. I get like 20 Holocaust scripts a month, but I hate the genre.”
However, Natalie made an exception in 2009 and played a Hasidic bride in the film “New York, I Love You ”.
“That was the first thing to come my way (“New York, I Love You”) that really intrigued me.”
“It wasn’t that I didn’t want to do comedy. It’s just that I would only get offered girlfriend parts in guy comedies, which aren’t exciting to me, or those offensive roles in romantic comedies where the woman has to have a job in fashion so that she can have nice clothes, and her goal is always marriage.”
But she will if she feels it is important to the role, including for one of her first roles was as a precocious 12-year-old in “The Professional.”
“There was a lot of controversy about the whole Lolita thing. My parents were super-protective about it, but I got a lot of weird letters. It was really upsetting. I didn’t want to be seen as a sex object, so I went in the opposite direction. I’m definitely not a prude about sex or nudity, I just don’t want to do something that will end up as a screen grab on a porn site.”
So there has been a lot of controversy surrounding these comments. Our friends at Yeeeah! say that it seems “disingenuous” and they bring up some good points.
She was the Lolita-esque ingenue in Beautiful Girls, she was essentially nothing but a love interest in the Star Wars prequels, she played a stripper in Closer, she did nudity in both Hotel Chevalier and Goya’s Ghosts, and photos of her bare ass have been floating all over the internet for several years now.
I think that its just actresses, such as Natalie’s, way of justifying nudity and sex scenes so they don’t feel that they made the wrong decision, and they don’t feel like it takes away from their acting credentials. But every time they make comments like this, it just comes out wrong.
