She was in "Your Highness". She doesn't get to take the high road anymore.

Tho, I am glad to see she is willing to debase herself for money.

She is pretty much the worst thing in 90% of her movies. Eye candy and nothing more.

RockofAges: I'm not one to complain but there wasn't much goin on in that scene (will admit I just looked it up).

Have you seen Spartacus on Starz? If you're a man, that's required viewing.


To be frank, I've never watched a movie, or a series, because there is nude scenes in it. If I want sexual content, I schtup by girlfiend, or watch porn. Maybe I'm jaded because, as a 9-yo French boy, I could see daily girls stripping to their thongs on national TV, but I don't need to be treated as a hormoney teenager every hour of the day. For instance, I think that there is too much sex in Game of Thrones.

Jim_Callahan: Juansmith: They should've let her go. I adore Ms. Portman, but her character was farking useless in Thor. I was ecstatic to see her photo in The Avengers for the sole purpose of promising that she wouldn't appear for real.

Yeah, pretty much the least convincing scientist in cinema history apart from Denise Richards as "Christmas Jones".


Which is funny considering she is one of the few actors with a Erdős-Bacon number, worked as Alan Dershowitz's research assistant and has two journal publications.

Anymore? Natalie "Anakin, you're breaking my heart" Portman? When did she ever own a "therious thespian" card?


The Professional.
Black Swan.

And arguably a couple others.

They've had three Bruce Banners (okay two, if you're just counting the Avenger-verse), two LTC James Rhodes, and they're probably going to get a bigger star to play Thanos in "Avengers 2." I doubt a different Jane Foster would even be an issue.

Just skip forward to Lucy Lawless getting fingered by hot chicks, fap, be done with it.

Overrated show is overrated.

What they need to do is have Kat Dennings come out as the real Jane Foster. Natalee Portman was just her body guard so that she could run around unabated and be safe. Problem solved. 

Or better yet, just switch them and say nothing.

Odd. Maybe it's because I'm a jaded American, but I find porn to be nowhere near as sexy as nudity in things like Spartacus or GoT.

They should replace her with Mila Kunis.

lamecomedian: I also hold her partially responsible for some of the flaws of the Star Wars prequels. I recall and interview where she said something to the effect of "It's so HARD to act in front of a green screen," and I thought to myself, "Lady, you literally get paid to play make-believe. Use your gorram imagination. You don't see Ewan MacGregor complaining."


You can tell the real thespians in those films (like McGregor or Ian McDiarmid) because they do a good job despite both the green screens and a director who doesn't actually care what kind of performance they give.

Natalie Portman, despite being quite intelligent, strikes me as feeling oh-so-above-it-all. I frankly don't consider her to be a very good actress, with the exception of those roles where she plays a precocious child (where the bar is much lower). It's almost as those she got lots of praise for her acting skills when she was twelve, and then just kinda figured "I'm good, I don't need to get any better" and has been stuck at that level every since.

You have to admit there was one hell of a redeeming feature about that movie:

And to boot you didn't even have to buy a ticket to see it, they showed it off in the trailers!

thought the saying that wasn't her ass shown in the movie but a stunt double?


If you want to see Natalie Portman's ass in all its glory (and there can be no doubt that it is her ass), go and look for the short film "Hotel Chevalier", the prelude to "The Darjeeling Limited". She's got a real hot sex scene with Jason Schwartzamn in it, but thankfully, she's the only one showing skin.

And enjoy it, too. She said that the reviews of the shorts focused so much on the nude scene, overshadowing all the rest, that she decided she won't do them anymore.

Just put in a scene where Kat Dennings finally removes 9 of the 10 sweaters she was wearing in Thor. Then have Thor look right in the camera.

So she had to *gasp* honor a legal contract between consenting adults that's been upheld in good faith?

Poor woman!
