Natalie Portman Covers V Magazine
The 28-year-old actress, who posed for Mario Testino in London for the shoot, wore Calvin Klein jeans and embellishments on the cover and opened up about sexuality, the internet and ambition:
On harsh criticism of her Star Wars work: “My acting was not exactly respected in those films [laughs] but those are the moments when you want to prove yourself again. When people think I suck, it helps.”
On how the internet affects her roles: “[O]nline bulls— interferes with what I want to do artistically. I’m not opposed to sexuality or nudity in a film, but I’m very opposed to pornography sites and you’re pretty much giving them material if you do any of that.”
On striving to be her best: “To be successful, you need the desire to be successful. Ambition can be a dirty word, but it’s pretty much more important than anything.”
