Natalie Portman Covers 'InStyle' February 2011

Natalie Portman Covers 'InStyle' February 2011

Natalie Portman wears Marc Jacobs as she graces the cover of InStyle magazine’s February 2011 issue, on newsstands Friday (January 14)!

Here’s what the 29-year-old Black Swan and No Strings Attached actress had to share:

On what qualities she looks for in a romantic partner: “I look for all the same things I would in a friend. Obviously, you need the sexual attraction too, so it’s like your best friend who you are also really attracted to.”

On what she’d do if she could go unrecognized for a day: “I would make out in the park! [Laughs.] That’s the thing I would most enjoy doing in New York, and it’s something I’ll never do. I’d also have loud, public conversations with my friends about personal things. Even if no one is paying attention—and most of the time, no one cares—you never know who is at the next table.”

On whether she thinks friends-with-benefits relationships can work: “I certainly have friends who could deal with that and others who could not. It’s something I’ve seen in high-achieving women – they compartmentalize. You’ve got your work, your friends, your exercise, and your sex. [Grins.] You can tick off those boxes.”

    She’s really classy, seems to be rare now a days.

  • stunning

    she looks gorgeous. she is talented, beautiful and smart. she is a great role model for young women.

  • ew

    hate her, she’s not as cute as she thinks she is and she seems completely stuck up.

  • Ali

    she seems very young. hope everything goes well in her marriage and with her baby.

  • lexy hates bilson

    She’s so cute! i’m keeping my fingers crossed that she gets the Oscar!

  • Elaine

    Yeah, I’m sure the ‘friends with benefits’ worked out well for you Natalie. That’s why you are now preggars and planning a shotgun wedding. And marriages based on pregnancies just don’t last. But good luck with the FWB message.

  • Soul Fly

    I used to be jealous of her…hell I still am. After seeing Black Swan the other day, my respect for her increased about…twenty fold. She is a fantastic actress and I wish her the best. The chemistry between her and Ben was pretty fierce.

  • Alias

    She’s a pathetic hypocrite, nothing more nothing less. Maybe Instyle should’ve asked if Nat was going to get a marriage license, I’d like to hear the answer to that one, seeing how previously she said she doesn’t want the state involved?

  • girl

    Now that’s a great cover. Love her, hope she gets the Oscar.

  • yo sista

    She’s stunning and smart and talented and beautiful. God bless you Nat <3

  • reyes

    I really like her too! I wish her the best!

  • Jokergurl

    Classy, intelligent (fluent in FOUR languages including Japanese) talented, few are more powerful on screen (even at her debut in The Professional/Leon) and just lovely she seems like a cool person and I hope her pregnancy goes well :)

  • jack

    the movie with Kusher looks totally stupid.

    What chemistry betwn Nat and Ben in Black Swan??? I didn’t see any sparks at all. He actually rubbed me the wrong way…very annoying. As I see it, he seems to be like the other actors who had co-starred with Nat…they all seemed to have fallen head over heels for her (most particularly, Hayden Christensen in the SW movies) – except in Ben ‘s case, he actually snagged Nat. But this is just another typical movie set romance. I don’t see this relationship lasting long (even with a baby on the way)….just typical Hollywood!
