Natalie Portman Not Naked For Directorial Debut image
Its gotten a little ridiculous with Natalie Portman. Its become almost impossible to utter her name without some lout in the background shouting something about how he heard she might be naked, or whining that he wishes shed be naked, or that hes sick of her promising and then failing not to be naked. So lets just get this out of the way right now so we can go on talking about how awesome she is, even with her clothes on. Natalie Portman will not be naked for her directorial debut. Unless of course, the cast needs some extra motivation.

Whether shes in her birthday suit or not, Natalie Portman is crazy talented and smarter than almost all of you. I cant wait to see what she does as a director, and Variety has confirmed the rumors we heard earlier this year which suggested shed try her hand at it on a movie called A Tale of Love and Darkness, based on the bestselling memoir of author Amos Oz. The book is the biggest selling work in Israeli history, which I guess makes it kind of like their own Atlas Shrugged. Hopefully its not as boring. Portman sees it as her opportunity to mix art and activism, saying We all have the same desire to make meaningful and artistically fulfilling films and are committed to the idea of stories leading to greater empathy and action for world issues.

A Tale of Love and Darkness tells of Ozs upbringing in Jerusalem during the turbulent times of the Jewish states founding. Back in February Word was that Portman may also act in the movie, and if she does shell play a small role as Ozs suicidal mother. Theres no mention of that in this new Variety story, but then they dont even have a finished script yet, so nothing is truly certain.
