Jake Gyllenhaal Interviews Natalie Portman

Jake Gyllenhaal scored an exclusive interview with Natalie Portman, his co-star in the upcoming war drama Brothers. Check out some hilarious highlights from the September 2009 issue of Interview Magazine (with Portman on the cover):

JG: What’s your favorite food?

NP: Well, I don’t think you can really improve upon Carvel ice cream cake.

JG: I’m more Baskin-Robbins style myself.

NP: Oh really? I am so Carvel. Did I just bring us back to 1985 Long Island?

JG: What song best describes your current state?

NP: My current state . . . I’m trying to think of a song that feels like sleepwalking. [laughs] I don’t know. I’ve mostly been listening to dirty rap lately. That’s sort of my scene.

JG: Your affection for dirty rap is something that people really don’t know about you, which I think is fascinating. You do incredible things for the world, and then you listen to just completely obscene hip-hop music.

NP: Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much. It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things, so combined . . . I’ve been listening a lot lately to “Wait (The Whisper Song)” by the Ying Yang Twins, where the lyrics are like, “Wait ’til you see my d—”—which is just amazing because it’s whispered. [whispers] “Wait ’til you see my d— . . . ” [laughs] Crazy. So I just listen to it like I’m a five-year-old, like, “Oh my god! I can’t believe he just said that!”

JG: It’s interesting that you think the lyric “Wait ’til you see my d—” describes your current state. I think people are learning more about you right now then they ever have in an interview. I’m proud of that.

    Tom Says:

    how silly, that song sucks, no wonder celebrities are a bunch of sheep, there own taste is awful. And it’s always girls that look like her, pretty if you look past the bad taste, two feet off the gourd height, who desperately try to prove that they have a wild, dirty side.

    @Alyn Clay:
    She isn’t a vegan, never were. She is or was a vegetarian, I believe and she has a vegan shoe line, because she doesn’t want to wear leather. But she wears wool clothes.

    Mary Says:

    I will repeat – Natalie hangs with Jay Z ???
