Natalie Portman talks Winona

Tuesday, Jan 18, 2011

Chris has posted in our forum a quote from Natalie Portman talking about how was to work with Winona. Check it:

LfF: What was it like to work with Winona Ryder (who plays the ballet company’s previous Swan Queen, who usurped by Nina’s casting, spirals into self destruction)? Was she someone you looked up to, growing up as an actress?

Absolutely. I think I’ve probably watched her more than any other actress. If you think about how many great movies in which she had the lead role… I don’t think there’s any actress that can compare. Between, you know… Mermaids and Heathers and Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands and Reality Bites and ummm Dracula, Age of Innocence, Little Women… It’s crazy when you think about it. Most actresses have one of those movies. She’s really iconic and I was really excited to get to work with her and she was amazing. She was kind and professional and patient, because you know there were days when she’d have to wait around for a long time. She just was completely humble and wonderful, and to watch her turn on such extreme emotions so quickly – it was just an honour to watch her work and I hope I get another chance.

  1. I hope they work together again soon…Oooooh….I can see a remake of LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN…that would be perfect for them. Winona as Ellen and Natalie as Ruth, and who will play Richard Harland? Now that’s the question…

  2. I would like to see the deleted scenes, when it comes out on DVD.
    In Venice, the rumor that Nathalie had done to remove a few scenes of Winona.
    I hope that is not true.
