natalie portman in the times

in the wake of current publicity for the new film 'the other boleyn girl', just a quick quote that i wanted to share:

"Back when Portman was 14, she was the face of Isaac Mizrahi, who would go on to cause a minor scandal at the Golden Globes two years ago, when he grabbed Johansson’s breasts. “Seriously, I would want to grab them. She’s got beautiful ones, but, Isaac, that was not so appropriate.” And, of course, while Portman is famously Jewish, Johansson is a lesser-known Jew (because of her Scandinavian father, she’s called “the kosher Danish”). When Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek made a movie together, all the headlines blared “the Hot Tamales”. What should the media label a film starring two Jewish girls? Portman doesn’t miss a beat. “The Hot Knishes,” she says, referring to the Jewish delicacy."

  1. That quote is awesome! If I hadn't blogged about her already last week, I'd so be all over it. Thanks for sharing. Cheers!
