Is Anyone Sick Of Natalie Portman?

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.

The whole time I watched 'Black Swan' I couldn't help but think it was mostly camera trickery and CGI when she was "dancing".

It's natural to dislike something or someone everyone else at the moment loves. Don't sweat it.

I dont hate her -- I think she's gorgeous and quite talented -- but I am less interested now that she's going to be a mom.

I feel like she sold out by getting knocked up so young.

At least Emma Watson is likable.

by Anonymousreply 1201/25/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 1301/25/2011

I've never understood the appeal, personally. Watching water dry is more emotionally engaging than her performance in... well... just about anything.

by Anonymousreply 1401/25/2011

I hear ya, OP.

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.


by Anonymousreply 1501/25/2011

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.

She's also a slut having a child outside of marriage. Let's not forget about that either.

by Anonymousreply 1701/25/2011

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.

I saw her in The Diary of Anne Frank. Anyone else see that? That final scene with the Nazi storming the attic was something to see. I think that is the first production to add that to the production. It was really quite effective. Portman was OK.. of course she was much younger and I believe this was her stage debut.

She seems very self-satisfied and princess-y.

Priggish is another good description, used by a poster above.

She also has the creepy, hyper-self-awareness of a small child who cuts her eyes over to the adults to see how they are reacting whenever she does something "cute."

The reason she comes off as princess-y is because she a jewish american princess and it comes with the title.

Happens every time an actor sweeps awards. Nothing new. She's wisely said she's taking time off and the baby is a good excuse.

As a woman, unless you're over 40 (or unfortunate looking), winning is almost a curse because its an invitation for everyone in the free world to hate you.

She has a slew of movies coming out this year, so even if she takes time off, she'll still be everywhere promoting.

I just can't warm up to her. She's pretty and she seems like she has a good head on her shoulders but every time I see her in a film I am so distracted by how babyish and annoying she seems. I have the opposite reaction to Gwyneth Paltrow. As ridiculously pompous as she is in real life, I enjoy her performances and I can't help liking her. A little bit.

She seemed so unpretentious and laid back before, then suddenly everything seems contrived about her. I thought she was okay acting-wise. Best of luck to her.

I also find Natalie a bland actress. My friend has the same rabbi as the Portman family or something like that, and their families ate dinner together once. The friend told me that: 1) Natalie was even more beautiful in person than on camera, and 2) she could not stop talking about herself.

Mediocre actress. She won an Oscar for Black Swan and it was a mediocre performance in a mediocre movie.

Her looks are also overrated. She's pretty average even with that rhinoplasty.

Some of her performances are so wooden, it's like she was channeling Brad Pitt.

Agreed, saw Black Swan the other night. It was just bad. Unoriginal, not artistic, cliched, predictable, boring, banal, didn't go anywhere, goofy. JUst your typical modern crap. Hilarious that people think it's something intelligent or artistic.
