Joseph Gordon-Levitt Says “Hesher” Would Not Have Been Made Without Natalie Portman

“Natalie is someone I’ve just admired ever since I saw ‘The Professional.’ She’s such a great actor, and yeah, she produced ‘Hesher.’ It’s the first movie her production company has produced, and what a cool thing to do that with. If you’re Natalie Portman, you can produce some huge Hollywood money maker, but she chose to do this little movie because she believed in the story and she believed in the filmmaker. It’s the kind of movie that wouldn’t necessarily get made without a little help from someone like her.”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt talks about his new movie, “Hesher,” in which he plays an anarchist convenience store clerk who befriends a teenage boy who is mourning the loss of his mother. Natalie Portman also co-stars in the flick, and Joseph can’t say enough good things about her. In fact, he says the movie probably wouldn’t exist if she hadn’t signed on.

Benjamin Millepied Dances In The Street

No, this is not how professional dancer Benjamin Millepied, aka Natalie Portman‘s fiance and baby daddy, walks down the street every day. Just once in a while. Like last Friday, when he was photographed in New York, shooting an ad for Yves Saint Laurent newest men’s fragrance. Which makes sense, since his lady is the face of Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie. They must be the best smelling couple on the planet. [People] Keep reading »

Natalie Portman’s Dad Pens A “Fertility Thriller”

Natalie Portman‘s dad has babies on the brain, and not just because his daughter is in the final trimester of her pregnancy. Dr. Avner Hershlag (Portman is Natalie’s stage name, FYI) just happens to be a big whig at the Center for Human Reproduction in Long Island and one of the nation’s leading reproductive specialists. But he also has a creative side, too. In fact, Avner is currently shopping his first novel to publishers. It’s called Misconception, and he has dubbed it a “fertility thriller.”

So what does that mean? Keep reading »

Natalie Portman’s “Black Swan” Dance Double Continues To Speak Out

Natalie Portman drew raves for dancing like a professional ballerina in “Black Swan.” If it looked impossible, that’s because it was, according to what Sarah Lane, Portman’s dance double, said on ‘Good Morning America’ (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Lane expanded on her previous statements that she actually performed the more difficult shots in the film, which were credited to Portman.

Although Lane made clear she was never told she would get credit for specific scenes, she accused director Darren Aronofsky of trying to create an exaggerated image of Portman’s dancing work. “They were trying to create this, you know, image, you know, this façade, really, that Natalie had done something extraordinary,” she said. “Something that is pretty much impossible.” Read more… Keep reading »

Natalie Portman A Reformed Vegan

“I actually went back to being vegetarian when I became pregnant, just because I felt like I wanted that stuff. I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy. If you’re not eating eggs, then you can’t have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when that’s all you want to eat. I actually wanted eggs at the beginning and then they grossed me out after awhile … I know there are people who do stay vegan, but I think you have to just be careful.”

Natalie Portman explains why she’s decided to take a vacation from veganism and give dairy products a try during her pregnancy. As a reformed vegan myself, I am in favor of this because, well, cheese is awesome. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Natalie Portman Doesn’t Smoke Pot Now That She’s Old

“I smoked weed in college, but I haven’t smoked in years. I’m too old. I wish I was that cool, but I’m like an old lady now. I’m in bed by 10 p.m. I can’t do that anymore.”

Natalie Portman talks to EW about her new medieval stoner flick, “Your Highness.” I definitely understand her saying she no longer smokes pot because, well, she’s pregnant. But to use the “old lady” excuse? Man, I am so over women in their late-20s and early-30s talking about how they’re old. Please, we have many years ahead of us to knit and play gin rummy at the senior center. For now, can we just be happy being young? [Newser] Keep reading »
