Natalie Portman is the V cover girl December 2009.
Natalie Portman did a stylish photo shoot for the magazine, and gave a slightly less annoying than usual interview. The 28-year-old actress was photographed by Mario Testino for the fashion-forward shoot. In the interview the Oscar-nominee talks about the fear of her own star waning, ageing, and plastic surgery.
The actress also goes into the gory details about her new attitude concerning sex scenes. She used to shy away from nudity on screen. However now she can’t wait to get her high-waisted granny panties off, so she can show people just how sessy androgynous vegans can be when they put their minds to it. The scene she discusses is the lesbian sex scene in Darren Aronofsky’s film Black Swan.
Read what Natalie Portman had to say to V62 and see more of her photos.
- Natalie Portman to V62 on how she feels about ageing in Hollywood: ‘You see people who were stars five years ago and already they’re waning. As actresses approach 40, it starts becoming really, really difficult.’
- Natalie on her feelings about plastic surgery and going under the knife: ‘I would hope not,’ she says of whether she’d ever go under the knife. However, she does not completely rule it out, explaining that she won’t know how she’ll feel as she ages. While wrinkles aren’t a problem yet, she admits, ‘if I have a pimple I want to get rid of it.’
- Natalie on what she thinks of her sex scene in Black Swan: ‘It’s not raunchy… [but] it’s extreme’.
- Natalie on turning down n*de scenes in the past because of the Internet: ‘It’s annoying because online bullsh-t interferes with what I want to do artistically. I’m not opposed to sexuality or nudity in a film, but I’m very opposed to pornography sites and you’re pretty much giving them material if you do any of that. It’s always a big dilemma for me.’
