Julia Roberts Wants to Rub Natalie Portman’s Feet After Seeing Black Swan

It’s not the reaction that everyone had after watching Natalie Portman’s performance of a perfection-driven ballerina, but Julia Roberts admired the actresses portrayal so much that she wanted to have her over “to our home to hug her, tell her all the wondrous things we think of her, rub her weary feet and make her the biggest, most delicious dinner she could ever eat!”

In an article in Variety Roberts shared her thoughts on Portman’s performance in Darren Aronosfky’s Black Swan. She wrote: ”It is an interesting endeavor, watching a friend in a film. It is a risk to agree to write an article about a friend in a film. With someone like my subject today, Natalie Portman, it seemed worth the risk. She is always lovely, always watchable, always interesting. Then there is ‘Black Swan.’ If only I could reach out from the page now and offer you a glass of terribly good wine and ask you to sit a while.

According to a diner who spotted the couple at a coffeehouse and café near Vanderbilt University and Music Row, “they were smiling and laughing. They were talking a lot and enjoying each other’s company. They didn’t look like [just] friends.”

The pair was first spotted together in late October in Brooklyn.

Another eyewitness said:  ”They were not trying to be discreet by any means. They were definitely a couple. They looked very happy.”

Mila Kunis On Weighing 95 Pounds: ‘All You Saw Was Bone’

Mila Kunis had to drop 20 pounds to play a ballerina in Black Swan.

“I could see why this industry is so f–ked up, because at 95 pounds, I would literally look at myself in the mirror and I was like, Oh my God!” she told E! Online about her dramatic weight loss. “I had no shape, no boobs, no ass…All you saw was bone. I was like, This looks gross.”

“In real life, it looked disgusting,” she continued. “But in photographs and on film, it looked amazing.”

Although it took her five months to lose the weight, it took just five days to put the weight back on.

Christine Bale: Esquire Magazine December 2010

Christian Bale strikes a pose on the cover of Esquire’s December issue. Here’s what the 36-year-old actor opened up about:

On keeping his family and personal life private: “Look, I’ve got incredible pride for my family. I’ve absolutely fallen into that cliché of a dad who could just happily talk about my daughter endlessly. But it’s not what I’m about in terms of being an actor. I don’t want people to know about that…I don’t want people to know me….Because that buggers up my job. Because if you know something about somebody, it gets in the way of just watching the guy as the character.”

On what he would have done if he wasn’t an actor: “I think I probably would have tried to experience my own stories in the way my father did — the sort of travel, the randomness of life, educating himself through experiences. I think I get that partially through acting, but you have to make an effort to be in an unprotected environment because everyone thinks you’re a completely incapable idiot who couldn’t possibly brush his teeth without an assistant. You have to make an effort in order to be able to actually experience the country that you’re in.”

On who he admires: “Chris Farley was just phenomenal. Beverly Hills Ninja will always remain one of my tops. I have watched that movie. One time I sat down and watched it two nights in a row, and cried with laughter both times. The guy just was a phenomenon, and is missed dearly in my household.”

Anne Hathaway Wants to Guest Star on Glee

Anne Hathaway has already mentally written herself a part for Glee.

The actress is huge fan of the show and has spent hours creating her own character.

Hathaway appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where she revealed: ”I would love to be on Glee. Can I make a confession? In my head I’ve written a part for myself in ‘Glee’! It’s so arrogant and obnoxious, it’s like, ‘Ryan Murphy no one else wants to be on your show.’But in my head I’ve cast myself and I know which song I’d sing. I would want to play Kurt’s long-lost aunt, his mother’s sister who is also gay, who comes back to help him deal with his sexuality and I would sing ‘No One Is Alone’ from Stephen Sondheim’s epic show ‘Into the Woods’.”
