I know we've been down this same road many times before and it always turns out to be a disappointment. We've been waiting for a nude scene with Natalie Portman for years that didn't involve some form of body double, CGI render, camera tricks or quick edits but it never came. However, there could very well be hope my fellow comrades.
A little bird has whispered in my ear that Natalie may in fact have a 100% real nude scene in her new short film called "Hotel Chevalier". The film is being directed by the brilliant Wes Anderson and it suppose to be a prequel to his upcoming flick titled "The Darjeeling Limited". It involves a couple (Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman) as they continue their romantic and sexual encounters in a Parisian hotel room above the city. Here is a piece of the article:
If there’s one element of ‘Hotel Chevalier’ that’s surprising for Anderson, it’s a strong sense of romance and sexuality: in one shot, Schwartzman gently pulls off Portman’s clothes to reveal her naked body from behind, and a later shot has Portman, nude, standing still in a doorway, one foot up against the frame. It’s a beautiful shot, and one that’s made even more pertinent by Sarstedt’s melancholic lyrics on the soundtrack. It’s the sexiest thing that Anderson has ever done.
I'm not sure what to think of this everybody but I will say that I'd give anything to see Natalie reveal her perfect body and if it is true, Jason Schwartzman is the luckiest bastard on the planet. We'll definitely keep our ears and eyes out for the latest news on this so stay tuned and tell us what you think.
