We’ve got a girl crush on Natalie Portman, and we’re not the only ones.
E! News caught up with the Oscar contender at the premiere of her new flick, “No Strings Attached,” where she talked about the frenzy of attention surrounding her “Black Swan” performance, engagement and bun-in-the-oven.
“It’s the most private thing you could ever go through in your life,” she says. “So there’s always an uneasy feeling of ‘This is okay to share, and this is for me.”
Okay yeah, we’ve been hearing plenty about Portman’s whirlwind of success both on and off screen — so what really got us was the girl crushes that co-stars Greta Gerwig and Mindy Kaling have on the A-list actress.
“I think every boy wants to marry her and I want to make her my sister,” Gerwig shares. “I’m gonna really get cracking on that. I need her parents to adopt me, I should convert to Judaism. There’s a lot of things I have to do.”
That statement could have been said in jest, but somehow it comes off as really creepy and we actually kind of believe her. The mainstream newbie looks like an awkward teenager who so desperately wants to be popular. A sentiment Mindy Kaling echoed (but not in such a weird way).
“It’s so funny,” Kaling explains. “Natalie’s so classy, like I just think of ‘Black Swan’ when I think of her… I don’t think of her like ‘Oh, and we’d be best friends.’ I’d be like ‘We would never be friends,’ she’s too cool… She’s like the cool senior and I would be like the freshman who did her slave work.”
Not to be left out, “Chelsea Lately’s” Guy Branum also adds, “I have a girl crush on Natalie Portman, yes.”
You can see the clip for yourself below, which also includes interviews with Ashton Kutcher, Ludacris and director Ivan Reitman.
Are we the only ones seeing Gerwig’s discomfort on camera? We’re a little bit torn between giggling and wanting to pat her on the back and tell her it’s going to be alright.
