Natalie Portman Covers 'Marie Claire' November 2013

Natalie Portman Covers 'Marie Claire' November 2013

Natalie Portman shows off some skin on the cover of Marie Claire magazine’s November 2013 issue, on newsstands October 22.

Here’s what the 32-year-old Thor: The Dark World actress had to share with the mag:

On living in Paris: “I just really really love it here. It’s one of the most exciting places to be in the world right now. It’s really central in terms of the arts. It feels like things are happening in L.A., you know? New York is more where art is bought than where art is made… I’m really lucky. When Ben [husband Ben Millepied] asked me if I wanted to go to Paris, I freaked. Everyone dreams of living in Paris.”

On her Thor co-star Chris Hemsworth: “Chris is, like, one of the greatest people in Hollywood. He’s the kind of actor who’s so charismatic, he must be tired when he goes home.”

On her fans: “People are really cool, by and large. I try and stay away from drunk people – that’s when they start getting rude and aggressive, like, ‘Why did you suck in that movie?’”

On making all sorts of films: “I grew up around a lot of snobbism about what was important and what was serious, and I really reject that.”

    jap of the worst variety. Why oh why does she have to be in thor?

  • ebib

    j.a. p.

  • whola

    She is so beyond intel…She stays away from drunk people?? She acts herself all the time as a drunk, cloud bitch… even if it´s just her personlity.

  • Veruschka

    She is… dumb. Her interviews are ridiculous.

  • Fercat

    Wow, a bunch of people got up on the wrong side of the bed.

    Smart girls always get the hate. Ditzy ones get a pass.

  • really

    Even not drunk people say that she has sucked in a lot of movies so whats her problem? Does she really think she has been good? lol

  • NorfEastKardashian

    I am not drunk, and still say she sucks. She’s no actress. She’s just a privelaged Jewesh, coming from rich family with money and connections. That is why she’s famous. Stay in France please, and never come back you hypocrite, and snob!

  • angelina

    I hope she likes France, considering they all love their meat and cheese so much. Also her loser husband is probably already cheating on her with one of his students. I bet he smells like rotten veal or something. He probably eats meat and seafood. Does she consider him a rapist? Only some people are expections according to her. Like her f–king, no name, ugly gold digging LOSER! Stay in France with your loser Natalie.

  • angelina

    She also said she does not care about being jewish yet when designer John Gallioano made that (drunk) racist rant, she went on about how she was so ‘offended’ by his comments and got him fired. She took credit for Sarah Lanes dancing and earned an underserved Oscar. People will always remember that she basically had to lie and cheat to get her hand on the stupid gold man. She was so greedy and eager to get one. Her lame husband also dumped his long-time girlfriend just so he could live the lifestyle of the stars. So that shows he doesn’t love her, but her money, fame, connections. Wonder what it feels like to live in a loveless marriage like her.

  • Slate

    Wow, the amount of hate! Natalie Portman is a bit of an awkward one. She’s an average actress but a lovely person (it would seem) and as a modest person she has problems with the look-at-me culture you need to reflect as a working actress in HW. She’s one of the better ones (google Charlize Theron talking about her Oscar on David Letterman for a contrast). She didn’t intentionally take credit for Sarah Lane’s dancing; I think that was part of the Oscar campaign that she had to keep quiet on that. On the whole I like Natalie Portman as a person but gee she’s really mediocre as an actress…but that face! Perfect face.

  • Bebe

    @angelina: Precisely why i pass on portman films. You pretty much summed up the problems with her.

  • Bebe

    @Slate: No, she kept her mouth shut about the dancing as instructed to do by Aranofsky and the producers of the film. She could have done the right thing and plugged sarah giving credit where it was due, but they were all oscar hungry and that would have messed it up. Sad.

  • =)

    Hate her all you want, there’s one thing you cannot deny, the girl has a damn PERFECT face! God…

  • Everhart

    @=): With her one-trick pony hairstyle and photoshop, of course! ;-)

  • angelina

    @Slate: Portman, Aronofsky and her loser husband all lied and claimed she was able to to 15+ years of dancing within a span of 12 months. BS. She is a liar and her Oscar win will forever be known as a win where she had to lie in order to get it. She seemed truly needy and desperate for an Oscar all her life. Good on Sarah lane for dishing the dirty laundry. She deserved her credit. As for Charlize Theron, compare her performence in Monster and Natalies in Black Swan and you will see which of the two is a great actress and which one sucks. Charlize never supported a child rapist and then compared eating meat to rape. She never uses her religious beliefs as a scaprgoat like Natalie does. Also, Charlize ex husband I think is also french(?) but he is hot whearas Natalie loser pedophile looking husband is ugly and a nobody. He got basically became famous a la Kardashian.

  • Fercat

    Can’t argue about Charlize Theron. She is the better actress.

    Should add J. Law too to the none Oscar worthies.

  • Lola

    Natalie is like a second rate Knightley, except Keira was robbed of her oscar for being british and refusing to suck up to hollywood, whereas Natalie was underserving of her oscar and very willing to suck up.. doing whatever it takes to get one @Fercat: Agree about j law.. their both in the same network
