Natalie looks beautiful on the cover of Madame Figaro magazine’s July 2012 issue! Check out the cover photo and the shoot in our gallery.
Here is what the 31-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On being appreciative of her success: “I have always considered myself extremely lucky. I know very well that there are very few elected officials in this business and that many of us, despite their talent and hard work, will not come out of the lot. These are the laws of chance.”
On her youthful appearance: “It’s very strange because my physical traits sometimes make it difficult for others to consider me a woman and at the same time I have been in the business for so long that many think I have already passed the 40 year mark (laughs).”
On being an object of beauty: “I obviously do not see myself that way. I prefer ‘about beauty’ or ‘subject of desire’. One can say that about all women, whatever their life and career.”
Natalie is on the cover of September issue of ‘Psychologies’ magazine. You can see scans in our gallery and read Natalie’s interview below! Natalie talks about one of her latest movies, ‘Love And Other Impossible Pursuits’, her film roles, the stages she’s gone through as an actor and the life lessons she have learned.
One might be forgiven for feeling just a slight pang of envy of Natalie Portman in 2011. She’s just given birth to a healthy baby boy with her ballet choreographer fiance, whom she met on set of Black Swan, for which she won an Oscar. It seems the 30-year-old has ticked pretty much every life-goal box in one calendar year.
Starting her acting career at the tender age of 12, as precocious child assassin Mathilda in Leon, Portman quickly stood out from her peers. By 14, she was starring alongside the likes of Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, and yet at 18 she found time to fit in a degree at the prestigious Harvard University, while simultaneously maintaining an intensely private home life.
Now, having won critical acclaim for her portrayal of a striving ballerina in psychological thriller Black Swan, she has expanded her reach yet again, taking on romance, comedy, drama and indie films in the past 12 months and adding production and directing to her already packed CV. And as she takes on the challenge of an unsympathetic mistress who loses her child in Love And Other Impossible Pursuits this month, we ask, what makes Natalie Portman tick?
Our gallery has been updated with scans from April-May issues of Best Movie International, SFX and Cinemags magazines, thanks to our dear friend Luciana. The scans feature articles on Natalie’s movies ‘Your Highness’ and ‘Thor’. Check them out!
