Natalie Portman is Black Swan Serious

Natalie Portman is Black Swan Serious

Natalie Portman walks back to her trailer as she works on her latest movie Black Swan on Monday (February 1) in New York City.

The 28-year-old Israeli American actress stars alongside Mila Kunis in the film about two rival ballet dancers.

Currently, Natalie graces the cover of Elle UK. In the interview, Natalie spoke about her good-girl image on screen.

“The good-girl image was something I consciously cultivated after Leon,” Natalie told Elle UK. “There was a lot of controversy about the whole Lolita thing. My parents were super-protective about it, but I got a lot of weird letters. It was really upsetting. I didn’t want to be seen as a sex object, so I went the opposite direction. I’m definitely not a prude about sex or nudity, I just don’t want do something that will end up in a screen grab on a porn site.”

  • NP FAN

  • lexy

    OK I’m fairly convinced this is just some loser Rachel Bilson fan saying these STUPID things about Natalie. Either way, she looks fine – it’s FREEZING in NYC – she’d look stupid if she was wearing a halter top!
    -
    To the haters…at the end of the day thankfully everyone who’s important in Hollywood & casting directors know how great and talented Natalie is…which is why she’s so busy and her acting career has been such a sucess!

  • lost

    the girl is a complete train wreck look at that outfit i mean really what is going on in her head nothing its empty shes gross ugh!!!!!

  • loosers

    @ lexy and brightside SAME PERSON nobody cares what you say or think she looks disgusting here in these photos nobody is talking about her talent and nobody cares we already know who you are youre the SICK OBSESSED FAN OF NP so we dont expect any differeny sh=t from you but when you posted as brightside ck out what you said about her coat you know she looks gross here and you said that coat is the worst please she does need help from RB or anyone if she can walk around like this…….

  • bargain basement

    ok the girl looks like she just went to filenes basement or something i cant beleive that coat!!!!!! what is she thinking???

  • what???????

    ok if you think the girl doesnt need serious help in her dressing you are all wrong i mean this is a nightmare this is worse then that yellow gettup she was wearing a few weeks ago at the arts and leisure weekend im a fan but she needs to know how to put herself together better dont care how cold it is in ny she can dress like a young girl not a old lady get a decent down coat and some cute ugg boots please my 5 year old can put herself together better!!!!!

  • Michelle

    Ahh come on people leave Natalie alone. She’s a great actress and at least she isn’t getting naked just to get naked on screen like Meghan Fox in order to be on some popular Hollywood hot list. Meghan Fox eek she’s one of the worst actresses.. what a joke! . Natalie actually cares about her image and thinks about those important issues. Kristin Kreuk is the same way on her image which is respectful and nice for a change. I’m interested to see this Swan movie..

  • dave

    what??????? dont even use megan fox and NP in the same sentence megan fox doesnt have to get naked to be gorgeous and hot NP needs a whole makover maybe shes been in more movies and projects but megan fox can walk out of her home wearing a sheet and look gorgeous look at NP what is that shes wearing my good god she is a mess!!!!!! come on i wouldnt doher if i were paid!!!!

  • kroq

    Jared should enable IP addresses to show, because I’m pretty sure it’s the same person hijacking the comment section.

  • dave

    @ KROQ listen we know youre BRIGHTSIDE AND etc…. so dont start bashing other fans of NP stay bashing the ppl you were bashing before not everyone has to agree with you who the hell are you ahole shut the f–k up!!!!!

  • the truth

    You all need to leave her alone. She don’t have to look pretty 24|7she is working on a movie.You can’t look good all the time like RB and don’t do nothing.That’s the one you all should be talking about. At least natalie when we see she is working and on this site all the time. Give her a you two know who I”m talking about .Give her some credit.At least she not calling the paz when she comes out.Still love her when’s she here.JJ you need to put haydenon here too and tell about the movies he’s in.Pretty and smart and don’t need the paz all the time

  • NP FAN

    sorry i disagree so what if shes working on a film who picked that coat up she did cause she has granny taste and dresses like a granny im a fan but im sorry i have always said she needs help and direction in dressing she just doesnt have it in that field…….

  • NATFAN

    I see the same group of hate NP came from that other woman’s board Bilson.

    @ loser
    My guess is that you only wish you could be this beautiful Natalie looks great and very sophisticated. She doesn’t need much to look attractive and she more then once said she is not a trend setter, she won’t do what Hilton, Bilson or others do and that is buy outfits and jewelry that would feed a small country for a year on just the clothing and shoes, handbags they purchase. I love the fact she is not a clothes horse or even likes the expensive things which she can afford but, doesn’t want to own. At one time those jackets were popular especially if you live in very cold states or countries.

  • lexy

    LOL! Sadly the insanity has followed Rachel to Natalie. It’s like the comparing Lauren Conrad to Meryl Streep.
    -
    Does Filene’s Basement even exist anymore?? I thought they went out of business a while back. But if you’re so concerned about Natalie – go buy her a new coat! Bring it on to the set and tell security you have purchased a coat for her.
    -
    She looks so awesome – she’s probably going to her trailer to read more of the many scripts she’s sent. It must be great being offered all these great roles!!!

  • frankf55

    Stupid People are so annoying and should be controlled.

    To you idiots did it ever occur to you that she is in character and in full costume.

  • NP FAN

    you happen to be very wrong i am not that group i happen to be a fan of np but i will speak the truth and you said the same about her coat you said it looks like it came off my grandmothers bed you brightside we all know who you are but really this is why those ppl are like they are to you cause you do start the bashing and mean cruel things you say nobody brought up paris hilton or rachel bilson why did you have to?? you really sound very angry and i read all the other posts and im not agreeing with them 100% but it does seem like you only talk about np good and bash everyone else its not right! i dont care about what she is wearing most of the time but like i said just cause im a fan doesnt mean im going to sit here and say oh her coat is great no thats wrong just stop bashing and why did you bring up lauren conrad in your other post see this is your problem you can beleive what you want who i am or not but if you continue bashing they will continue on you it looks that way and thats why nobody will want to chat with you!

  • HeyHowAreYa

    @NP FAN: Perhaps what you should really be embarrassed about is not being able to spell ‘embarrassed.’

  • NP FAN

    @ HeyHowAreYa well all i can say sometimes my fingers type faster then i can write i surly know how to spell but why did you avoid anything in the last post cause you know im right and youre wrong and you came back and started bashing again so i guess all the other ppl you were fighting with are correct about you why dont you say something about your BRIGHTSIDE post where you said nps coat looks like it came off your grandmothers bed???? why dont you answer that??

  • ARABIAN NIGHTS

    well well look what we have here bashing more ppl the big black bird is at it again cant even stand up to her own bashing WOW you bashed nps coat cant beleive it are you feeling ok???

  • NATFAN

    @ Arabian Night go back to your I love Rachel Bilson board. All you have ever done is spew Crapgarbage about NP each time RB comes back into the JJ site. It’s funny Press whore Bilson needs the attention for NYILU coming out tomorrow her 8 minutes of no talent, with the critics stating she isn’t an actress but one you want to forget in a heartbeat. I think that tells ppl something about your goddess who dresses in drag most of the time. Not to mention you are on here using multiple names all the time bashing NP seems your the only one who is trying to keep Nat’s posts up to over 100 by the end of the day go for it but, she doesn’t need your attention she gets it honorably.

    @Brightside

    I know I don’t have to say this but, the bashing posts are all coming from the same imbecile AN just using a ton of user names. And as I said before Nat doesn’t try to be this Paris Hilton, Kristen Bell etc or whomever it is pimping out their idea of fashion. She doesn’t have to carry bag lady sacks stating be green or feed the poor most, jumping on charity’s she never supports past the paycheck they give her. This is another reason why those on RB board and it’s only really maybe 1 person who is constantly bashing on NP start to wonder if that person has a crush on NP for all the attention she gives her.

  • ARABIAN NIGHTS

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA now here we go!!!!! that was a nice long one but why are you using and posting as NATFAN please we all know it is you!!!!!! BRIGHTSIDE why dont you explain why you did bash nps coat every read it everyone knows your sick we didnt come hear to bash np or paris hilton or lauren conrad we dont mention anybody elses names but you do with your sick mind that is BASHING AND HATING we are hear to show how to be a fan and to teach arabian nights how to act human but it doesnt seem to work i guess youre just as pathetic as your country is BASH AND HATE tell us would you like to suicide rb or LC or PH tell us np would be sick to know she has an obsessed especially arabian night fan she would throw her guts up so continue on write your stories keep on BASHING see whose talking and chatting with you NOBODY cause they know your a sick sorry arabian night so youre talking to yourself we are not reading youre post but keep on show everyone how sick you really are!!!!

  • Sweetness

    it’s sub zero temperatures in NYC she’s wearing that coat to keep warm…

  • HeyHowAreYa

    @NP FAN: First off, I’m a bit confused. I commented on the glorious shape of Natalie’s head. A few hours later, I returned to this post {no idea why} and read your snarky little comments. I thought I’d return the snark. And now you’re saying something in all-caps about ‘brightside’? Forgive me, Kanye. I don’t understand what your comment is in reference to.

  • brightside

    @HeyHowAreYa: The comment is to me but, hey don’t worry about it! This sick, rascist loser thinks that every comment posted saying Natalie’s a wonderful actress and pointing out that, as an actress, Rachel Bilson doesn’t have her ability, range or depth comes from myself using different user names. People are right, it’s like comparing an actress of Meryl Streep’s class with Lauren Conrad but acting is about the art of it and the not-so-good actresses will just have to get used to being compared with those who genuinely do have talent. And, yes, I did disparage the coat (it’s not very flattering) but it’s warm and, as others have rightfully pointed out, Natalie is more interested in perfecting her art than she is in playing dress up for the paps.

  • lexy

    @ Natfan – there’s no I Love Rachel Bilson fan board to go to!!! Perhaps instead of paying JJ and paps to follow her around Rachel should start a fan board – of course it would be lame b/c she’s probably got like 3 fans (what with all her “work”) but I’m sure she could get her mom and her lil sister to post too.
    -
    @ Brightside I find it interesting that he keeps calling you a bird. I mean Rachel’s the one constantly wearing these bird costumes. She’s worn those Tweety bird yellow dresses and then that white bird dress a few weeks ago. It’s very strange but then again…you can’t argue with crazy people!

  • brightside

    @lexy: Yep – Rachel’s one, poor, sad, lonely and obsessed fan is definitely a crazy in my book though I was assuming he was a she. The comments sometimes sounded more female spite than male spite.

  • NATFAN

    I checked on the jacket it’s an UGG which is Austrialian made an very popular it seems. I looked at it more upclose and it actually doesn’t look bad. My guess is b/c she is small the jacket makes her look lost in it. Other then that Natalie looks good.

    @ Lexy
    RB has some fan boad bc the insolent board hopping pea brain with the multiple user names seems to jump ship given the chance or the psych ward is letting too many use the computer instead of napping. I do think that RB chic is desperate for press attention god knows she can’t do much else in this world but, shop. I looked at that woman’s clothing and honestly it’s not what I would claim to be great. Too many times she looks like the bag lady to her BF’s hobo look.

  • Alias

    @32 – Rachel has 4 constantly updated fanboards compared to Natalie so maybe your browser suks or something. I guess Nat doesn’t have as many fans as you thought rachel-bilson.org/, miss-bilson.us/, rachel-bilson.net/, rachel-b.org/ vs natalie-p.org/, natalieportman.com/npcom.php

    and oh by the way, Nat’s a homewrecker as a well as a rapist supporter and it’s funny how she says she cultivated her good girl image but doesn’t have a problem outing herself as a stoner and a person who liked to get wasted, she should STFU already! Let’s see now a homewrecker, stoner, drunk and supports rapists, yep keep cultivating that good girl image Nat!
