Because clearly it wasn’t enough to turn in one of the best performances of the year, then get impregnated and engaged to someone on set, Natalie Portman is now saying that the physical exhaustion from the set nearly killed her, thus completing the time-honored “list of things you have to do to win an Oscar”.
“There were some nights that I thought I literally was going to die,” she told the magazine. “It was the first time I understood how you could get so wrapped up in a role that it could sort of take you down.”
Oh, and just to guarantee her name on the trophy…
“Everyone was so worried about who was going to want to see this movie,” Portman says. “I remember them being like, ‘How do you get guys to a ballet movie? How do you get girls to a thriller?’ And the answer is a lesbian scene. Everyone wants to see that.” SOURCE
Aaaaaaaaand we have a winner. Sorry Annette Bening, but unless you were nearly killed during your lesbian sex session, you just got one-upped, yo.
