Got a girl crush on: Natalie Portman
This one’s an easy one. She’s got classic looks (the second coming of Audrey Hepburn?), poise and grace (keeps a low profile in the pap rags), and brains to top it off (a degree from Harvard).
She’s featured on the cover of Interview Magazine’s September 2009 issue with an interview by Jake Gyllenhaal. The banter between the two starts off overpouring with intelligence, and then they bring it down a notch with this little gem:
GYLLENHAAL: What song best describes your current state?
PORTMAN: My current state … I’m trying to think of a song that feels like sleepwalking. [laughs] I don’t know. I’ve mostly been listening to dirty rap lately. That’s sort of my scene.
GYLLENHAAL: Your affection for dirty rap is something that people really don’t know about you, which I think is fascinating. You do incredible things for the world, and then you listen to just completely obscene hip-hop music.
PORTMAN: Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much. It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things, so combined … I’ve been listening a lot lately to “Wait (The Whisper Song)” by the Ying Yang Twins, where the lyrics are like, “Wait ’til you see my dick”—which is just amazing because it’s whispered. [whispers] “Wait ’til you see my dick … ” [laughs] Crazy. So I just listen to it like I’m a five-year-old, like, “Oh my god! I can’t believe he just said that!”
GYLLENHAAL: It’s interesting that you think the lyric “Wait ’til you see my dick” describes your current state. I think people are learning more about you right now then they ever have in an interview. I’m proud of that.
Ahh…so that explains it.
