On Thursday the 20th of February K4P Jerusalem had the pleasure to welcome actress and activist Natalie Portman to our offices. She took a break from filming her directorial debut here in Jerusalem to visit, an adaption of Israeli novelist Amos Oz’s acclaimed memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness.
With people arriving early the anticipation and excitement was palpable. Staff, alumni, volunteers, members of the steering committee and young people from the culminating groups awaited her arrival with baited breath. This excitement was not just that we were about to meet one of most prolific female actresses in Hollywood but that this was a woman born in Jerusalem, well known throughout the world who speaks with hope that, “someday [we] use our unique human assets of language and empathy rather than military technology or propaganda to resolve this conflict” A ideal that K4P endorses and works through. Having just gained NGO statues we are working towards developing and delivering a programme that will do just that. By extending the hand of friendship we are surmounting mountains that politics in the region has failed to deliver on. This visit is a testament to all the young people that have participated and a reminder to the staff that the work we do is of importance in shaping the worlds understanding of life in the Middle East.
Natalie Portman is disappointed she won’t be in Star Wars Episode 7.
The Oscar-winning actress appeared as Padme Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and her character dies giving birth to Luke Skywalker and Leia in 2005?s Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.
Given Padme’s tragic story, it’s highly unlikely she will be in the forthcoming Star Wars film, much to Natalie’s dismay, as she will be missing out on a chance to work with director JJ Abrams.
When asked by Movie Pilot what her thoughts are on Episode VII, she said: ‘I am so excited about them. I think JJ Abrams is such a talent and I can’t wait to see what he does. I am only sorry that my character died, which means I can’t be in them. I saw him somewhere and I said “How did this happen? I can’t believe I’m not going to be in the new movie.”’
Meanwhile Abrams is busy pulling together a cast, which doesn’t include Transformers 4 star Jack Reynor, but could reportedly include Judi Dench, Gary Oldman, Michael B Jordon, Michael Fassbender and Zac Efron.
The director is gearing up to start work on Episode 7, which might be taking place from May to September according to HitFix.
Star Wars Episode 7 is out on December 18, 2015.
‘Thor: The Dark World’ comes to DVD and Blu-ray next week! That means you’ll be able to relive the thunderous adventure whenever you want in just a few short days.
Natalie Portman, the actress who plays Jane Foster, got to explain what life on the set of Thor was like. She said about her character
Jane Foster doesn’t fit in. She’s a short brunette in a world of blonde Amazons; in a place where magic is reality and there’s all of this advanced technology that she’s never seen.
She also spoke about meeting the parents. It’s a situation that might be a little different when your boyfriend is a demi-god. Although working with legendary actorAnthony Hopkins is a different story…
Jane is clearly a thorn in Odin’s side, but it was such a great honor to get to work with Sir Anthony. He’s the loveliest, loveliest man.
Natalie, also about women’s empowerment, has a definite respect for the Marvel films. She said
There are definitely many strong women in these movies, and I think that’s a testament to the people who run Marvel. They have a respect for women with the way they want to characterize them.
Make sure to stay tuned for even more interviews from the stars of ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ and don’t forget to pick it up when it comes to DVD and Blu-ray onFebruary 25!
I’ve added HD screencaptures from the latest Thor movie. Enjoy them in our gallery!!

The Oscar-winner’s location shoot for “A Tale of Love and Darkness” is forging ahead in Jerusalem despite some blowback from the ultra-orthodox community.
Natalie Portman‘s directorial debut, A Tale of Love and Darkness, has encountered some blowback from local residents during its location shoot in Israel.
Earlier this week, ultra-Orthodox leaders in Jurusalem’s Nahlaot neighborhood filed a letter of complaint with the city’s deputy mayor in protest of the decision to allow the Hollywood crew to shoot there, while graffiti appeared in the neighborhood denouncing a “foreign invasion,” reportsTimes of Israel.
Portman’s first project as a director has been shooting in Israel since the start of February. An adaptation of Israeli novelistAmos Oz‘s celebrated memoir of the same name, A Tale of Love and Darkness chronicles Oz’s early childhood in Jerusalem during the chaotic late 1940s as the British Mandate for Palestine came to an end, along his memories of growing up during the early years of the Israeli state. Portman, 32, whose father is Israeli and mother American, was born in Jerusalem herself. She will also appear in the film, in the supporting role of Oz’s mother.
“The film shooting is set to take place on several sensitive streets close to synagogues and yeshivas, and the scenes being filmed should have been examined first to make sure they don’t offend anybody’s sensitivities,” the letter from residents to the municipality reads. They also complain that authorities didn’t inform them about the shoot, and should have consulted the community before giving Portman’s production free reign.
In response, the municipality promised residents that all of the actors involved in production would dress modestly while in the neighborhood, in accordance with local customs.
“There is a constant tension between the desire to celebrate diverse and interesting Jerusalem and the attempts by extremist groups to prevent this,” Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Rachel Azaria said. “The attraction of the city, its unique architecture and the efforts of the film and television industry will triumph.”
In a word of support for Portman, she added: “And the cinematic growth we’ve seen in Jerusalem in recent years will continue to flourish also tomorrow with Natalie Portman in Nahlaot.”
A Tale of Love and Darkness is produced by Portman’s own Handsomecharlie Films banner. The company received about $450,000 from the Jerusalem Development Authority to shoot the film in the capital.
Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman has decided to use her wealth to help those less fortunate.
The award-winning actress is donating clothes and money to Syrian refugees through an Israel based organization, Operation Human Warmth, meant to “aid noncombatant women and children in Syria” according to their website.
“When I heard about Operation Human Warmth I felt deeply moved and compelled to get involved,” Portman said in a statement.
“In the middle of a brutal winter, these children have no shelter and their lives are in serious jeopardy from the cold. I am proud to take part in an operation where Israeli youth of all backgrounds are taking action to help out those whom need it most.”
The initiative is being led by Israeli youth group Hanoar Haoved Vehalomed, educational group Dror-Israel, and humanitarian organization Israeli Flying Aid.
Portman and her husband, Benjamin Millipied, who is in the process of converting to Judaism, and their son Aleph, are living in Israel while she films her directorial debut, ‘A Tale of Love and Darkness.’
“When we see the situation in Syria right now, we feel compelled to act. We feel that this operation is an expression of the Israeli public’s willingness to help those who need it most,” Dror Israel international director Gilad Perry said.
He added that over 20,000 items have been donated thus far.
