...For your consideration.
Natalie Portman is currently on every ones Buzz list. For good reason too, her portrayal in 'The Black Swan' was amazing. But thinking about her past roles & what i've seen her in, all of her performances are great. 'Garden State' ( a movie many think overrated. not me.) was a fun quirky role. She killed it in 'Closer'. That movie in general was brutal but amazing. 'V for Vendetta': BAM! Another great performance. Her and Jason Shwartzman's scene in 'Darjeeling Limited is my favorite thing about that movie, after the breif Bill Murray part. Plus, she's the presidents daughter in 'Mars Attacks!', forgot about that, huh?
Her roles are never the same, and she doesn't play the same character. she has a virsitility that some of her peers don't have. She's not all about celebrity, and likes to keep her private life, well, private. She is on the road to becoming one of the best actors of her generation, if she's not there already. Coming up on her plate are Three very different movies; a rom-com with Ashton Kutcher, a period comedy from the pinapple express crew, and Muthah Fuckin'THOR! I'm ready and awaiting awesomness all around.
So, in closing: Natalie Portman = GOOD. GoGoGo see Black Swan!
