    A bit too young for that part. Jodie Foster would be perfect, but that may be too obvious a choice.
    (I think Jolie doesn’t want to do it because of the studio messing up with Pitt’ The Assassination of Jesse James. She’s loyal !)

    I’d watch Natalie Portman stranded anywhere. Hopefully Robert Downey’s supporting role is minimal.

    I love Robert Downey jr and Jolie …. Together they would have been great. Good for Natalie terrible for jolie. Jolie would rather do a salt sequel ? Really? Ugh!

    ”Although Cuaron, Downey and the studio have juggled multiple potential stars, including Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively, none has come up all cherries. But the role now is Portman’s if she feels up for it. As an added benefit to the studio, even with a nice raise, her salary would only come in at about half of Jolie’s.”

    Wow.. Natalie Portman will never be in the A-list.

    Natalie Portman got the A-list salary for “V for Vendetta”.

    Yes I wish Jodie Foster would get back into the game, she’d be great for the part.

    Jody Foster is too cold and too old now, although, there is not a movie of hers I did not like. I also love Angelina Jolee but Natalie Portman is the only one n their league who can do just as well, she is also younger and looks sweeter.

    Hope she gets the part. Like to see her doing something different outside the roles she has made. you got to give it to she does work. She would be working with A -lister. Its part are maturing with each role you place. It would be good for her to do the role.

    taut Says:

    Jodie Foster is a bad actress when it comes to love stories she is so unreliable. I don’t know if Natalie is a good choice but surely more interesting to watch and she is a good actress, i don’t know anybody else who would be better for the role, i believe that Angie has chosen Natalie. With Robert together a very interesting combination.

    Who the hell is for Jodie? Says:

    Jodie Fosters career is over, she just would ruin the movie, Natalie is much better. Jodie can only play in horror movies.

    Two beautiful, talented women in the same post. Natalie Portman can only go up in her career…and to be chosen by Angelina…how inspiring is that! Angelina is A++ and Natalie must be close to an A.

    Natalie is so average in every way. IMHO

    Who said Angelina chose anyone? She backed out, she has no say in who’ll gets the part now. Geez, you idiots.

    Theresa Jolie Pitt Says:

    It really doesn’t sound like something Angie would do. I don’t like 3-d movies so I hope Portman gets it so I don’t have to go see it lol.

    Wow! That’s great for Natalie. She’s been so busy with all her films and they’ve got such great buzz. Angelina has been filming back to back- she could probably use a break!

    anon Says:


    I don’t know a lot about the story except that it is science fiction and I am so up for that but according to Nicke Finke at Deadline Hollywood the Natalie’s youth is supposed to be more age appropriate. Anyway good for her. Angie has other fish to fry.

    busted Says:

    This is not Angelina’s role.. she turned it down twice..WHY is it necessary to promote the film by using Angie’s name.. If she wanted the role it was hers. SHE DIDN’T want it..

    so leave her out of it.. I doubt she cares who take the role.. The studio yes because they need someone to bring in the audience..

    Leave Angie out of it.. let this film stand on the name of the people involved…not someone that is not..

    Angie has other things on her plate.. Directing, Producing.. and much more..

    to zao77254 Says:

    no, i think the real reason she’s not doing gravity is because angie has already too much on her plate; writing and directing a film, the role of cleopatra, etc etc

    well Says:

    they look like they could be sisters.

    There’s only a 4-5 year differene in age between them so Natalie is the right aage range

    She’s gettng rave reviews for Black Swarn so whatever. She’s been around a long time and is very talented. If not Angelina then Natalie would be good.

    I wouldn’t get anyone’s nickers in a twist over this it only states they offered it to NP. Honestely she is an A listed actress seems the Foreign Press seem to believe it after viewing Black Swan she isn’t triple A but she is A+. Natalie is versitial she can pretty much do roles that seem outside of her range but make it work. She took over for JLo with the Love and other Impossible pursuites said she played a step mother rather well. I sort of put her in the same catagory as Julia Roberts.

    Great Says:

    There is 6 years difference not 4, anyway, Natalie is the right choice , age apropriated for the role, not only she is taking on Gravity but she will also start next to Brad Pitt in the Terrence Malik movie Jerry Lewis biopic!!! mmm hot couple, Natalie and Brad have 2 movies to do together, now this is a beautiful young fresh talented actress, more beautiful than the anorexic granny and younger!
