Natalie Portman Asked Cate Blanchett For Parenting Advice

Natalie Portman looks stunning in a Prada dress on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s August 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 34-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On balancing parenthood and her career: “Very early on, I asked [Cate Blanchett] about being a parent. I said ‘How do you do it? You’re a mom. You’re the best at what you do.’ She said, ‘You just do. Stressing about it doesn’t help.’ Most men I know are dealing with the same issues. They say they feel like if they work too hard they won’t have enough time with their families. Maybe those questions need to be asked of men, too. Maybe the men need better questions.”

On Hollywood’s focus on fashion and gender inequality: “I like to look at what people are wearing, but I do see the sexism in it. Yeah, you could reject it all, but I don’t know anyone who has done that and been able to maintain the level of work that I’d like to maintain.”

On her Israeli roots: “If you say, ‘I’m from Sweden,’ everyone says, ‘Cool.’ Then when you say, ‘I’m from Israel!’ everyone wants to have a 10-hour political conversation. Everyone has a very strong, very passionate opinion about it. But I’m grateful for it. I had so many friends who asked, when we were younger, ‘Who am I? What’s my identity?’ I never questioned my identity.”

Natalie Portman came to talk to me about this, and we had a very good conversation. And one thing, interesting, that she insisted on, it held up the project for awhile. She said, ‘I want the director to be a woman. There are not enough women in this industry. There are many talented out there.’ And now they do have a woman director,” Ruth shared.

Watch Natalie Portman Speak to Harvard Graduates (Video)

Natalie Portman takes the podium to speak at Harvard’s College Class Day in Tercentenary Theater on Wednesday (May 27) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The 33-year-old actress and 2003 graduate served as the keynote speaker ahead of the official commencement ceremony.

“When I got to Harvard just after the release of Star Wars: Episode 1, I feared people would assume I had gotten in just for being famous, and not worthy of the intellectual rigor here,” Natalie said. “It’s easy to romanticize my time here, but I had some difficult times here.”

Natalie Portman On Her Directorial Debut: 'You Have to Do What Burns a Fire In You'

Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman stun on the red carpet at the Sicario premiere during the 2015 Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

The pair were joined by Alicia Vikander, and Antonio Banderas and his girlfriend Nicole.

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. More Here! »
