Natalie Portman Wants To Talk More About Her Dress, And Less About The Middle East


Here's a new one: Normally, actresses are sick and tired of being asked about what they're wearing. It looks like one actress isn't, though. Natalie Portman wants to talk more about her dress because she's sick of being asked about the Middle East and U.S. Foreign Policy by reporters when talking about her new film, "A Tale Of Love And Darkness."

Come again? Natalie's new film, which premiered at Cannes this year, was shot in Israel. And Portman, born in Jerusalem, claims that her connections to her Jewish heritage remain strong. Her interview with Harper's Bazaar reads,

It's a strange request, really, while other actresses, singers, and artists are dying for reporters to ask about their craft. I guess too much of something is exactly that: Too much. Maybe some people do like to get asked who they're wearing. Because, well, it's an impressive achievement done by a talented glam squad.

Everyone should get a fair share of questions, both fun and about their craft. The key is not pigeon-holing each type of person into a category.
