Natalie Portman - "W Magazine" March 2008
Natalie Portman shows her support for permitting gay marriage and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the March 2008 issue of W Magazine.
On equality for all in marriage: “I’m into monogamy. But I’m not really into marriage right now. I sort of hate the legal aspect of it. What does the state have to do with it? Why are they making rules that say my lover can stay in the United States if they’re foreign or share my health care benefits because I’m straight—but if you’re gay, you can’t have that?”
On being impressed by Hillary Clinton: “I met with about 10 representatives that day and Hillary was by far the sharpest. Did you read Gloria Steinem’s op-ed piece? Hillary’s just so experienced.”
On the impression she gives off in her public profile: “The only thing that’s a little bit annoying, is I feel that I come off kind of boring sometimes.”
On why she’s super-picky about the movie projects she chooses: “As an actor, you have to respect your position and know that you are fulfilling someone else’s vision. Mike Nichols always quotes Mamet’s line: ‘Film is a collaborative business: bend over.’”
