Portman finally nude?

Sep. 6, 2007by: Mike Sampson

I feel like I've been down this road and disappointed so many times that I can't say I fully trust this report, but nevertheless we have another Natalie Portman nude report. We get this with a lot of her movies lately (CLOSER, GOYA'S GHOSTS) only to be let down when the product arrives but word out of the Venice Film Festival is that Portman goes nude in a Wes Anderson short titled "Hotel Chevalier." Presented as a prologue to THE DARJEELING LIMITED, Portman appears with Jason Schwartzman who plays his character from DARJEELING. They're lovers, she strips, the world is happy. Here's a report from Time Out London on the film;

If theres one element of Hotel Chevalier thats surprising for Anderson, its a strong sense of romance and sexuality: in one shot, Schwartzman gently pulls off Portmans 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. Its a beautiful shot, and one thats made even more pertinent by Sarstedts melancholic lyrics on the soundtrack. Its the sexiest thing that Anderson has ever done.

It is possible that there is a body double used but reportedly you get a good look at her from behind and another body-length shot from the side. Nobody has come out to me and said straight out "you see Natalie Portman's boobs," but it's a good start. Unfortunately, "Chevalier" won't be playing in theaters in the states. It was shot to run at festivals like Venice and later this month at the New York Film Festival. Those who don't catch it there will have to wait for it to appear on the DVD.

I'll see this movie no matter what nude or no nude because its Wes Anderson.

And Natalie Portman is gorgeous. If she were a president she'd be, Baberaham Lincoln. She's a great actress. I'd love to see her nude, but not a "here i'll be nude for the sake of being nude" scene. And this scene doesn't sound like that kind of scene. If she's nude everyone will be like, "wow now i know what it was all about."

NP Nude...w-w-what???

Oi, first let me say that I think Nat is one of the most naturally beautiful young actresses out there, she's the type of braod that could spend a rough night in an alley dumspter and still wet the huggies of most guys out there! That being said I'm a bit bland over the hype of a newd scene with her, hey if you wanna show it I'll be damn glad to see if my imagination was anywhere accurate BUT I'm not gonna blow a gasket over it. I'm sure she has an amazing body but frankly I don't need to

I'm sure she has an amazing body but frankly I don't need to lament over what I'll never have. I'm psyched about this film purely because it's Wes Anderson and that's it. Nude or no-nude it'll be great to have her rocking scenes with Schwartzman.

As for the nude scens go yes, she goes completly nude but all you see is her behind and a side view shot but not front view just behind and side from afar.

I completly understand that. Im not saying 'she does a nude scene i won't like her as much". No thats not what i mean.

Yes. if its the right film and perfect scene that calls for a nude scene to really sell it than yes, i would appreciate her more.

Awesome...

Sounds very tastefully done, as well. I can't see how this would taint ones perspective. It's not like she's getting ass-reemed by Billy Bob Thornton.

dude...

anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of the internet can see NP naked, right now. it's all over the web.

i respect actresses that don't feel the need to strip it off to make people get interested in them or their character. if it's appropriate to the scene and isn't a gratuitous thing, then it's different. but pointless nudity isn't necessarily a good thing for a film.

then again, shying away from nudity when it's appropriate isn't good either. sex scenes with bras on or obvious

it's a balance between flashing your boobs at any given moment or hiding them away forever. try to keep it somewhere in the middle.

How would her being nude ruin your take on her? It's not like she'd do it just for fun so all the guys can see her boobs. She'd do it because the role is right and it's meaningful, if anything it should only make you a larger fan of her because she would be brave for doing such a role..

I love T&A as much as the next guy and have no problem with nudeity and always wanting to see the next topless celeb but I just don't want to see Natalies Nats. I guesse cause i follow her carrer so much and aprecciate her work so much that nudeity will ruin my take on her.

If she does do it i hope it's for the right movie and the perfect scene.

Don't get the fascination

Sure Portman is a decent actress, but, what's with the fascination of seeing her nude? It's not as if she has anything worth seeing. Don't get me wrong, she is very attractive, but I'm a bit surprised to read men wanting to see her nude. Honestly, she's quite skinny and doesn't have big 'assets' compared to someone like Johannson for example. Still, personally, not trying to sound gay or anything, boobs are boobs, ass is ass. They all come in different shapes and sizes but they're just T&A.

I think that the fascination with this issue comes from the fact that guys like to see a beautiful woman naked. There's nothing wrong with that but its things like this that promote the mentality that women are only good for giving pleasure to men. There's examples everywhere like this as well as things that encourage the attitude that women are inferior to men, like the saying "Bros before hoes" and even in the film Ratatouille. Even though articles and stuff like this are all in good spirits

Even though articles and stuff like this are all in good spirits its not helping to curb the unhealthy views on women in a male dominated society. I'll leave you with this last thought, "If all the women on earth were taken away how would all the men plan to survive and create the next generation from scratch?".
