Natalie Portman Likes it Hot and Spicy

A hipster-looking Natalie Portman leaves Benares Restaurant in Berkeley Square through the side entrance in London on Monday night.

Food from Benares Restaurant – all of which is Halaal – incorporates dishes and ingredients from all corners of India.

Natalie is in town to promote her new film The Other Boleyn Girl, costarring Eric Bana and Scarlett Johansson.

Handbag by Chanel, shoes by Converse.

    great to see her in the UK love her :)

  • luckyL

    Lovely and intelligent. Though I always feel like she’s probably a bit of an elitist.

  • luckyL

    I’m really really loving the outfit though.

  • Raven

    Natalie looks FABULOUS! :D

  • ella

    cant act and she looks sad and old.

  • jamila

    She looks cute, however I think it’s funny how she’s always like “I’m not into fashion, I’m so above that” or whatever, but here she is walking around with a Chanel purse! It’s not like she’s on the red carpet or something. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with being into fashion in your real life (I am for one, LOL) but don’t act like you’re not shallow or something, god sometimes she is such a hypocrite about things…

  • Salome

    Wow so much Natalie recently Jared, getting kind of sick of her already! (I have to agree with Ella the girl really can’t act, but she’s totally gorgeous to look at though)

  • eme

    jealous much ella? It’s obvious she wants be left alone. It’s one thing to endure press junkets – that’s apart of the job. But it’s another thing to have cameras shoved in your face on your down time. She’s never been one to ham it up for the papps… unlike so many wanna-be “serious” actresses…

    Beautiful as usually. Love the outfit :)

  • donna

    You will never guess who shared the hottest lesbian kiss in HOLLYWOOD….and Miley Cyrus got wasted …….again….See the photos on Why Fame . com

  • sarah

    She’s never stated that she’s above fashion. You’re kidding right? This girl has been frolicking in the likes of Chanel, Prada, Miu Miu, Lanvin… for YEARS. She was even Zac Posens’ muse for a time. Where did you get that idea Jamila? However, she refuses to wear animal products (leather, fur, feathers)… if that’s what you mean by being “above” fashion… ????

    there’s no wrong in having an opinion – but i can’t help but think the “ughh, she can’t act” refers soley to her work in the star wars prequels…. hmmm? Have you seen ALL of her films? Consider that before passing judgement… you don’t get nominated for an Oscar for… “bad acting.”

    Anyway, if your sick of her: her film much anticpated film (good or bad) is a week away from release. Don’t post and skip to the next thread if she’s annoying you so much…

  • lauren

    Even though I think she’s probably the most boring girl in Hollywood, I have to admit that she’s looking pretty hot lately. She needs to do a really risky role, like a nudist serial killer (LOL) or something, to try and shed that “intelligent good girl” image that makes her seem so dry and boring!

  • aschlee

    Natalie Portman has a way of always looking good no matter what she’s wearing.

  • heeelio

    Is she still with Nathan Bogle?

  • sarah

    Lauren… watch CLOSER. There’s nothing “good-girl” about her portrayal of Alice. A stripper. The movie itself is borderline uncomfortable. But Natalie made it watchable.

  • Halli

    Lauren, I can tell by your comment you’re probably an uneducated hick from nowheresville, USA.

  • Jude

    well i don’t know if the other person was referring to star wars or not but actually i really didn’t like natalie’s performance in closer (i know i’m like, the only person on earth lol) sorry but i just didn’t find her believable for one second, actually a lot of things she’s in as an adult i think her acting is kinda wooden- but she was great as a little girl in THE PROFESSIONAL a long time ago, did you guys see that, awesome movie!!

  • HOT!

    hot wowwowowowo….scarlett knows what she’s bangin!! nice outfit!

  • HOT!

    SCARLETt knows what she’s bangin..natalie’s fuckin hotshit

  • jamila

    sarah- Actually she says things like that quite a lot, about how you shouldn’t get caught up in fashion and looks – even though as you said she herself has always worn designers clothes, and has had a stylist/makeup artist since she was a little girl. As one example, she recently said at a Boleyn press junket: “I love comedies so much, but any kind of comedy the girl’s like ‘in fashion’ or she’s really into clothes, or like, she just wants to get married. Those are not values that I care to jump on the bandwagon of.” She said this of course while wearing some Prada or Gucci or whatever. I dunno, I just see this as pretty hypocritical.

  • sarah

    Jamila, read between the lines.

    She doesn’t have a desire to portray “cliche, underdeveloped female roles” that center around, fashion= life, I-will-die-if-don’t-get-married before I’m 30… you name it. Meaning: she peruses roles with which she considers substance, originiality, or those that present a challenge. A film with a designer wardrobe isn’t a priority on her list.

    So… how is that A. Related to her personal sense of fashion? and B. hypocritical of her to say?

  • srn

    love the jeans! they’re the most flattering i’ve ever seen her wear — anyone know who makes them?

  • greatshow

    She is hot. I saw her on R i c h C u p i d s . com last week. Is she sin gle now?

  • xxxxx

    she looks amazing as always.

  • Jenn Schift

    This Jewish princess advocates illegal settlements, wall building and apartheid along with vegan shoes and vegetables. She is the celebrity spokesmodel for Zionism.

  • Carrie

    Can I just say in response to jamila that I think what Natalie was trying to say is that fashion sometimes forces you to buy the latest item out every season and that you should be individualist and buy something if you like it but not because you want to keep up with trends. She also did say that she buys into it by wearing designer clothes and the like, can’t remember exactly what she said but she did say the buy into it part. The truth is you know we can’t all walk the straight and narrow, in some small way no matter how much we try to avoid it we will cause harm no matter what. Due to her profession she will always have a connection to fashion, which will always make her seem like a hypocrite for saying what she said.

  • yuni jie

    It’s very Natalie.
    She’s very simple and casual. she likes wearing converse and jeans. I like that. I don’t see any wrong with the channel bag. You can mix it with your casual look.
    she’s not ‘wanna be icon’ like la lohan, bilson, barton, miller, alba or duff.

  • 008

    She can’t act? Since when?

  • André

    she looks AMAZING here!!!!
    rly…i prefer her so much more this way than when she does premiere and stuff..except for that Oscars when she was running for best supporting actress for Closer..she was just perfect that day.

  • Kleo

    Natalie looks just amazing here!
    I have to admit, I’ve seen many photos of her in these jeans (or very similar ones)))). Does anybody have any idea which brand is that??? They just look so figure lattering…ugh…


    really cute outfit….


  • Souhila

    @ Halli # 17: haha , love your comment , you’re the best !!

  • Fuck OFF

    She is a jew! So it’s Kosher not Halaal, moron!

  • lauren

    LOL Halli. You are sooo right. I’m like a completely, like, uneducated hick from nowheresville “USA!” because I don’t like Natalie Portman. Your statement is so illogical, I don’t really even know what to say.

  • lauren

    And ps. I did see Closer. I felt like Natalie Portman should have passed on the role and given it to someone who was really invested in “going there” to make that character seem believable. She played a stripper. She shoulda stripped, for fucks sake. It pisses me off that she gets great roles (STEALS great roles) and then doesn’t do them justice, when there are many other, much more FEARLESS actresses who could do so much better.

  • *Den rules*

    @ 24, No her boyfriend Nathan Bogle was there with her they just don’t show him in the pics here

  • lilian

    she’s the new audrey hepburn

  • Solid

    She looks very beautiful, but sad Nat is not nice to see.
    She needs a deep and permanent smile on her.
    She is so lovely woman and really deserves a harmony
    in her heart. I love her.
