I'm really tired of seeing and hearing about her. Her acting leaves me cold too. I never actually disliked her in the past, but just something about her rubs me wrong way these days. Perhaps it's just me. Perhaps I'm not alone though.
Is Anyone Sick Of Natalie Portman?

I've only seen her in a handful of roles, most notably the Star Wars prequels. I don't get the hype. Pretty, but not particularly talented. But to be fair, the Star Wars prequels sucked so badly that it lessened everyone involved in my estimation.

There's something a little insufferable about her, something priggish and self-infatuated I can't quite put my finger on. And then in interviews? Eww!
Perhaps self-knowledge will come with age and experience.

I have loved Natalie Portman since Beautiful Girls,and through her triumphs in Garden State and Closer. While I hated Black Swan, I liked her performance and won't begrudge her her current success.
However, the fact is that Benning, Lawrence and Williams (I haven't seen Kidman) gave stronger performances this year, as did non-nominees Naomi Watts, Tilda Swinton, Jya Kim, Leslie Manville, and Julianne Moore.
|by Anonymous||reply 16||01/25/2011|
I thought she was terrific in Black Swan but believe that it will be the highlight of her career. The character fitted her perfectly but she doesn't have a lot of range. Then again, a lot of actresses don't. But she'll always seem like a fragile little girl to me so I don't know what other kinds of roles she can play as she gets older.
