The Other Woman (2/4/11) Natalie Portman: 5 Movies in 6 Months!



Could I ever get sick of seeing Natalie Portman?

I don't think it's possible, but I guess I'll find out as 2011 sees four of her films released in the first five months! Throw in "The Black Swan" from the last month of 2010, and five in six. Along with all the awards shows she'll be attending (and I expect making acceptance speeches at) I just might get sick of her.

The Other Woman is a film written and directed by Don Roos (The Opposite of Sex) about a newlywed woman (Portman) who suffers the death of her newborn baby and struggles to bond with her young stepson (Charlie Tahan) while also dealing with her husbandís jealous ex-wife (Lisa Kudrow).
Another decidedly adult role for Natalie as she bucks her girlish image.
The film was completed in 2009, but is just now being released. It is already available as Video On Demand.

By the way the other movies are:
No Strings Attached, a rom-com with Ashton Kutcher (1/11)
The stoner comedy meets fantasy epic, Your Highness (4/11)
and Thor, the comic book actioner (5/11)

I thought Jude Law was already the female Jude Law.

I definitely want to see this one, and I cant get enough of Nat. Good things she has these movies in the can since she has to take a little time off.

From the trailer, I don't think it looks like an R movie.

Movie's supposedly crap. Been on the shelf for a year and just happens to come out after Black Swan...I wish Lauren Ambrose was a bigger star. She's a much better actress than Portman.

Best response I've heard in a long long time. Thanks for that hardy laugh.

I don't think it was the experience, as much as the fact that the scene was (obviously) screen-capped and posted all over the internet.

I still don't count a butt shot as nudity. But hey that's just me.
