Woman Crush Wednesday: Natalie Portman – V for Vendetta
It isn’t easy being ridiculously good looking. I’ve seen all the reports that people who are “more attractive” get better jobs, earn more pay, and generally live better lives. What I don’t see in those reports is the intense pressure that comes with walking around this handsome all the time.
The slightest gust of wind could mess up my hair. Even the slightest misstep could cause my strut to lose its rhythm. A messy taco could spray sauce onto my shirt, rendering it unacceptable and causing me to change my entire day in order to switch into my backup shirt.
For those reasons, I have a serious amount of respect for those working actresses who have made their careers on their acting abilities while still being insanely attractive. Natalie Portman comes to mind. She could be out showing her butt-cheeks off and getting pay checks by wiggling her hips around and making the female equivalent of Magic Mike. As much as I’d like to see that, she has committed herself to being an actual actress, and that makes me want to see her naked even more.
V for Vendetta wasn’t Natalie’s first foray into the action world and hopefully it won’t be her last. Not only is she totally down to get roughed up in the action scenes herself but you can see the transformation that she makes during the film, adding an emotional element to a film about a dude running around blowing up stuff wearing a mask and speaking in alliteration likes he’s been doing bath salts for a week straight.
Do you like it shaved?
Portman does the Demi Moore/Sigourney Weaver gimmick and gets her head buzzed on camera. I don’t particularly get why it’s so impressive to see someone get their head shaved in a film. I’ve watched my dad cut his own hair for 15 years and that’s way more impressive than someone taking trimmers to the dome.
There is one thing that I do find very impressive:
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m turned on by this picture in a very legal and not a sick and twisted way. The filmmakers knew what they were doing when they put her in that little dress and curled her hair up like that. The British accent that Natalie was using in V for Vendetta only made it hit harder, like an asteroid colliding with Earth dragging along 5000 tons of dynamite. Alan Moore, that bearded quack, may have been right about some of the themes of the film not exactly fitting with what he had written but I don’t remember David Lloyd drawing that character nearly as hot as Natalie Portman. Take a bow Natalie, you deserve it.
