Take a good look, folks, because this is probably the last time you get to see Natalie Portman in a pre-MILFdom state, so to speak. Not that I lament her mommy status. I'm happy for her, despite what the conservative wack jobs would prefer us to think. Still, our little girl dun grow'd up. Okay, so she's like a couple years younger than me, but still, we've gone through a lot together, Ms. Portman and I.
I recall those early days of her and Jean Reno playing dress up in LEON, making me feel both charmed and uncomfortable at the same time. Then watching her give it everything to draw some feeling out of Lucas' emotional no man's land in the STAR WARS prequels, followed by the much more worthy and gut-wrenching tribute to pain and pathos that was her performance in V FOR VENDETTA. And finally her Oscar-winning performance as the tortured ballerina in BLACK SWAN.
Of course, there's still plenty of stuff to look forward to from Ms. Portman - notably her impending thong in the up-coming YOUR HIGHNESS and a tassel with the gods in THOR. Still, things are never going to be the same with us, are they Natalie? Someone find my CLOSER DVD, fast!
