Natalie Portman Remembers Lauren Bacall After Her Death

Natalie Portman has released a statement honoring the late Lauren Bacall, who passed away suddenly yesterday at the age of 89.

“Lauren Bacall’s strength, wit and talent matched her extreme beauty. I had the great fortune that she so generously allowed me to direct her in my first short film,” the 33-yera-old actress told JustJared.com. “It was a true honor to watch her act up close – her sense of humor, timing and imagination were apparent in every moment. I will never forget the gift of her trust in me and the inimitable and vast talent she had. My deepest condolences to her loved ones.”

Natalie directed Lauren in the short comedy film Eve back in 2008. Our continued thoughts are with Lauren‘s loved ones during this time.
