I can’t imagine that Portman wrote anything that’s less than brilliant, but maybe she could use some advice from the following celebs who’ve tried their hand at screenwriting?
10 Celebs Who’ve Tried Screenwriting
Living in Los Angeles, it’s a cliché to say you’re working on a screenplay. For 90 percent of those people, nothing will ever come of it. However, if you’re already mega-famous and totally awesome, like Natalie Portman, people will certainly pay more attention. The Harvard-educated actress has been shopping around a screenplay for a “ribald comedy” she wrote with friend Laura Moses. The script is called “BYO” and is about two 20-somethings who’re useless at love and decide to throw a party where women “bring your own” eligible bachelor. Portman wants to take on one of the roles while Anne Hathaway is supposedly interested in co-starring. The flick is being described as a female “Superbad,” and the comedy is hardly PG. Rumor has it that on page five of the script, one of the main characters is caught giving a 15-year-old a blowie! Several studios have passed already, but perhaps it will become an indie flick?
