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.”

Pictured: Natalie and director Pablo Larrain attending their Jackie: Variety & AARP Movies for Grownups Screening on Wednesday (January 4) in Los Angeles.

Natalie Portman Says 'Jackie' Role Was 'Certainly Scary'

Natalie Portman knew that taking on the role of Jackie Kennedy Onassis in her latest film Jackie would be a challenge.

The 35-year-old pregnant actress recently opened up about all that pressure.

“It certainly is scary. Obviously, people have preconceived ideas about who she was and what she was like,” Natalie told W magazine. “And the first thing you want to be for an audience is believable, of course. So you have to achieve a certain threshold of believability at the beginning just to get people to go to the movie, and to stop seeing you as an actor. So it was scary, but I knew that in the hands of Pablo [Larraín], our director, it was a safe thing to try.”
