Natalie Portman Figured Out How To Be Jackie Kennedy When She Put On The Wig!

Natalie Portman did a ton of research for her Golden Globes-nominated performance as the world’s most famous widow in 1963, Jacqueline Kennedy, in Jackie – but it wasn’t until she put on the wig that she truly figured out how to portray her!

“Well, I think it all kind of happened simultaneously. The physical and emotional sides came together all at once,” the 35-year-old pregnant actress told W magazine.

“I was doing the research – watching the tapes and working on the dialect and everything – at the same time as they were getting me into my costume fittings and hair and make-up tests,” Natalie added. “But yeah, once you have that hair… the hair is so iconic that it can kind of make you look like her even though I don’t naturally look like her that much apart from my coloring. So with all of those elements you just feel in her skin in some way.”
