I think it's safe to assume that every man in the world at one point in their lives had what doctors call a Natalie Portman phase. Perhaps they're still in it, but I remember when I saw CLOSER. I totally wasn't allowed to and the only thing that I had really seen Natalie in were the STAR WARS prequels, but then I saw this and my life has changed forever.
Oh, dear God, yes. Thank you. After that, it was all downhill for me, but in the best way possible. I willfully threw myself on the Natalie bandwagon and have been a happy passenger ever since. I know some of you folks may not necessarily be as fond of the girl with the dancer husband and the baby (she has a happy life now on top of her career? How dare she!!!), but I'll always have a special place in my heart for the woman, whether she has brown hair, blonde hair, is in a comedic role, a serious role or even when her head's completely shaved.
Today, however, is a very important day, my friends. It's Natalie's 33rd birthday and we're celebrating with a few pictures of herald her ridiculous beauty. So, bust out your favorite Portman movie, whether it be THOR or BLACK SWAN, bust out the six pack (it's 5 o' clock somewhere) and enjoy the beauty this woman exudes in photoshoots, red carpets and her movies. Happy Birthday, Natalie!
