It has been quite a month for Natalie Portman. I haven’t seen it yet, but the whole world is raving about Black Swan (read our review here or our second review here) and specifically her performance in it. Then there was the release of theYour Highness trailers – one R rated and one PG rated. Read here about the PG-rated trailer which digitally replaced a thong she was wearing with a less revealing bikini. Oh yeah, that movie also looks awesome.
That brings us to December 27, where we got the news that Portman was engaged and pregnant to Benjamin Millepied. The Harvard educated bombshell was off the market, and the Christmas hangover for many guys gets a little worse. Strangely enough, on the same day, IFC Films released the movie poster (see above) and the trailer for The Other Woman – a film adaptation of Ayelet Waldman’s novel ‘Love and Other Impossible Pursuits’. The story is of a woman’s difficult relationship with her stepson.
Aside from Portman, the film also stars Lisa Kudrow (Friends), Daisy Tahan (13) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under). The film is directed by Don Roos (Bounce).
