Natalie Portman On Her Directorial Debut: 'You Have to Do What Burns a Fire In You'
Natalie spoke with WSJ recently about her directorial debut drama A Tale of Love and Darkness.
“You have to do what burns a fire in you,’’ Natalie said. “The subject matter provoked many ideas and also confused and upset me at the same time.’’
“I started working on this project when I was 27 and initially wanted to use an Israeli actor for the role of Fania. I kept pushing for that, but I couldn’t get the financing. Then, all of a sudden, I was 31. So I thought, all right, I’m starting to get the age where I can actually pull this off,’’ Natalie added.
FYI: Natalie is wearing a Lanvin dress and de Grisogono earrings. Alicia is wearing Louis Vuitton. Cate is wearing Armani Prive.
