Natalie Portman & Mila Kunis: Ballet Bunch

Natalie Portman and her Black Swan co-star Mila Kunis rub shoulders at the 2009 American Ballet Theatre Fall Gala at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall on Wednesday (October 7) in New York City.

Natalie, 28, and Mila, 26, play rival ballerinas in the upcoming thriller Black Swan, out 2010. They reportedly will participate in a racy girl-on-girl love scene.

Mila hasn’t confirmed or denied the rumors, telling FOX News, “I’m not allowed to talk about the script yet, but I’m excited to work with Natalie. I’ve known her for some time.”

FYI: Nat is wearing a dress from the 2009/10 Chanel Cruise Collection.

    I will last 2 seconds in that divine pus*y.

    I’m so glad the recession has been good for Natalie. I’d hate for her to be out of work. She would be forced to pursue things she’s passionate about. And judging by her film performances, acting clearly isn’t one of those things.

  • Lola

    I think Mila is better looking then Natalie. She’s gorgeous.

  • sharon

    @mona: I disagree and this is why

    Natalie Portman (Hebrew: נטלי פורטמן‎; born Natalie Hershlag June 9, 1981) is an Israeli American actress. Her first role came in the 1994 independent film Léon (known in the United States as The Professional). She achieved wider fame after playing Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.[1] Portman, who has said “I’d rather be smart than a movie star,”[2] completed a bachelor’s degree in psychology at Harvard College while she was working on the Star Wars films.[3]

    In 2001, Portman opened in New York City’s Public Theater production of Chekhov’s The Seagull, alongside Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.[1] In 2005, Portman received a Golden Globe Award as Best Supporting Actress in the drama Closer. In May 2008, she served as the youngest member of the 61st Annual Cannes Film Festival jury.[4] Portman’s directorial debut, Eve, opened the 65th Venice International Film Festival’s shorts competition in 2008

    @#2 I totally agree.

    @#3 Star Wars had some of the worst acting to ever grace the screen and Portman’s performance as Anne Frank as well as Nina in The Seagull received poor reviews so you can wipe the brown off your nose now. And you should really google Pia Zadora before bragging about someone winnning a Golden Globe.

  • Voice of reason

    Oh my god her dress is the length as someone else. Waiting for the same comments-can’t have it both ways

    @sharon you forgot to list she also signed her name to release a child rapist.

  • rachel

    I still can’t believe she signed the Polanski petition. By the way, why did Natalie change her last name? The other person who did that was Winona Horowitz. Are they embarrassed of their names or, even worse, their heritage?

  • #1fan

    Mila makes Nat look like a hag…haha

  • Voice of reason

    @ 7 Rachel no she did it for privacy

  • rachel

    But why did she choose a non-Jewish stage name?

  • Happy_Evil_Dude


    Plenty of celebrities change their name:

    Bing Crosby => Harry Crosby
    Bob Dylan => Robert Zimmerman
    Buster Keaton => Joseph Frank Keaton
    Cary Grant => Archibald Alexander Leach
    Charles Bronson => Charles Buchinski
    Charlie Sheen => Carlos Irwin Estevez
    Chuck Norris => Carlos Ray Norris

    etc, etc , etc,….

  • Maximus

    She got into Harvard after she was already famous. Not quite the same thing as getting in on merit. Plus, everybody knows that Psychology is a cop out major, which is exactly why it’s at the top of my list. Hell, even George Bush got an MBA from Harvard. As far as her acting goes, she is the epitome of wooden.

  • maria

    @rachel good question. it used to be common ages ago, but nobody does it anymore. everybody on that list (#11) is either dead or really old and Charlie Sheen only did it because his father changed his name.

  • jimmyx

    Mila wipes the floor with Portman and she doesn’t stick her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. Tell us again, Natalie, how you know what it’s like to be Black because you’re a celebrity and how the recession is a good thing, and how pedophiles should not be sentenced because,well, they’re your biggest fanbase and enjoy your early work.

  • dalia

    She changed her name for the same reason she had a nose job.

  • sharon
  • lexy

    She was barely famous when she got into Harvard and earned an actual degree and used her real name. She was never a media whore so it’s not like at that point in time she was the “star” she is now. She earned a REAL degree – not one of those honary degrees celebs get from colleges trying to boost their publicity.

    Both of these women are very beautiful and talented. Natalie’s accomplished more at her young age than most of her peers and Mila’s a rising star.

    It’s nice to see 2 lovely and TALENTED women on this board – especially in the same thread vs JJ’s usual media whores.

    And if she got a nose job – who cares?? Did she use bailout money from tax payers to foot the bill?? Did she use welfare or medicaid funds for it? If not it’s really none of your business then.

  • sharon
  • Anakin

    Wow and I thought only one certain actress around here was hated with a passion lmao. And isn’ t it nice to see the haters from another actress’ threads put on the defence. What goes around comes around…

  • nikomilinko
  • Ilia

    What the f*** are you c***s cackling about? Both of these women are gorgeous and respectable in their own right. I personally would take Natalie over Mila any day – but who cares…

    Natalie is a very smart girl – RESPECT!

  • Maximus

    @lexy @ 10/08/2009 at 5:36 am

    She’s been making movies since early teens and was already cast in Star Wars when she got into Harvard. She had the lead in one of the most anticipated movies of our time and you think she was “barely famous”? Are you perhaps unfamiliar with Ivy League pandering to the undistinguished members of the rich and famous elite?

  • sarah

    Natalie is gorgeous, she is the envy of the world.

  • kate

    Natalie changed her name to Portman, which is the name of her Jewish grandmother. She did it so her immediately family would have privacy.

  • Mary

    Natalie is has a brilliant mind, she went to Harvard and got straight A-s all her life.

  • rick

    Her dress is a very nice length unlike what Rachel Bilson wears up to her underwear uncovering her ugly saddle bags. BTW, saw her interviewed yesterday, she is stupider then stupid. Sorry to bring her up on Natalie thread.

  • sam

    There is not anyone in HW like Natalie Portman, talented, gorgeous, classy, the most respected young actress. She turned down part out principal that other dumb talentless actresses would kill for and that included Ratchel Bilson. Natalie refuses to model and others do it for a buck.

  • bella

    I am glad she signed the petition, Polanski suffered for over 30 years, way longer than he would have to.

  • ruthie

    It’s true that her Anne Frank was embarrassing to watch. NYT gave her a bad review and called her performance artificial but I decided to see it anyways. She simply does not have the talent to back up her fame.

  • @desparate morons

    You can make up lies about Natalie, but it will not change the fact that she is very busy working and your so called actress midget loser is not and never will come close to Natalie. You are jealous to the point that you come here and spread lies, I wonder why, unless you see that you defend a girl that stands no chance against Natalie and never will.

  • @desparate morons

    Natalie possesses unique talent and intellect and beauty and no one measures up. No one in HW can come close to Natalie Portman.

  • immature


    Bitter and jealous much?

  • immature

    @lila — exactly. Wah-wah, she changed her name, wah-wah, she signed a petition. Hate makes you old, my friends.

  • flatchested

    Natalie is the most gorgeous-est (LOL) girl that ever lived on this planet ,and she’s the smartest (not really) person, and when she acts it makes Meryl Streep want to retire, and when she farts it smells like perfume.

  • sotruetoo

    Natalie is beautiful and talented and always classy and superbly educated and she is the envy of the world including all other actresses in HW.

  • sotruetoo

    To clarify, all actresses in HW admire and respect and envy Natalie.

  • haydenfan

    I am sick of Natalie getting stick for signing that petition, no I dont agree with it, but she knows the man personally and has worked with him so maybe that is why we wont know till she says, but the way people are going on you would think she was the only person to sign it SHE WASNT!! There are 2 petitions, and there are plenty of famous names on these lists, Acadamey Award winners, and a lot of respected people in the industry there too, so why is Natalie getting all the flak???

    anyway she looks great, nice to see a working actress getting some recognition on here

  • confused

    Why is the same person posting over and over using different names? Good for you if you admire Natalie but do you have to post it 20 times?

  • sotruetoo

    who is it? i think Natalie gets tons of posts bc she is very well known and a lot of people do not put up with lies that some psychos post here. I just had a talk with a group, I think they did it on their own. Yep, they did. We are slow here now.

  • blah

    Mila Kunis makes Natalie look fug.

    @ the person saying Natalie is intelligent, honey, you’re not too bright either are you?

  • @29

    People who do not have talent do not get awards and do not make 4 films a year, they usually run around looking for a job and parade eating and shopping in desperation.

  • @blah

    Natalie went to Harvard and got straight A-s all her life, that is the measure of intelligence for me and you of course can’t comprehend it. You know, I have a suggestion, you should admire Lohan or Bilson or Hilton, this talented young lady is too much for you, way over your head.

  • @seville

    Natalie always gets good or great reviews for her acting, she and McGregor carried Star Wars, which was ruined by Christensen. If it was not for Natalie and McGregor, it would be unwatchable. Natalie is the pride of HW, she is as good as it gets.

  • lisa


    Sure, Polanski suffered, he is the TRUE victim in this, not the underage 13 year old he raped. PEOPLE WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    One of my fav films is The Pianist, but that does not mean Polanski is God. He is a criminal! No one is above the law, and all those who signed that disgusting “petition” obviously think they are. I am truly disgusted by all those who signed it, & that includes Natalie. They are all scum.

  • md

    That Natalie is such a class-act, the way she promoted pedophilia in Leon and Beautiful Girls.

  • @6 VOR

    Natalie’s dress is at least 10 inches longer than your unemployable trash wears, and don’t forget, Natalie can walk around naked, she has no saddle bags.

  • @7

    Natalie signed the petition bc the man was forced out of the country for 30 years, he paid his dues. As to her name, Portman is the name of her JEWISH grandmother, she did not want her parents to be exposed to publicity.

  • Shawn

    @# 28 – bella

    He suffered for 30 years?
    Look, I know Americans for some reason don’t like the French, but living in France isn’t much of a punishment, trust me on this.
    Ever heard of the saying “Living like God in France”?
    It’s a nice country, really , Bono and Brangelina wouldn’t live there if otherwise, don’t you think?

    @ # 37 – haydenfan

    What flak does she get, really?

    People state their disappointment in Natalie Portman in this thread because it is a thread about Natalie Portman.
    If it were a thread about Scorsese or Tom Tykwer, there’d be the same statements of not understanding why the raping of a child encourages a petition demanding the release of a rapist.

  • @8

    Natalie is considered better looking than Kunis, she has softer and more perfect features, Natalie is the best looking young actress in HW. She is perfect.

  • @ Rachle 10

    Portman is the name of her JEWISH grandmother. You are stupid and ignorant, research before you slander.
