Natalie Portman brings back the 80s in the new issue of V Magazine, where the actress talks about why she didn’t like her performance in Star Wars, her favorite dirty word, and why the internet is bulls#$t.
On Star Wars: “My acting was not exactly respected in those films [laughs] but those are the moments when you want to prove yourself again. When people think I suck, it helps.”
Her Favorite Dirty Word: “To be successful, you need the desire to be successful. Ambition can be a dirty word, but it’s pretty much more important than anything.”
On how the internet affects her roles: “[O]nline bulls— interferes with what I want to do artistically. I’m not opposed to sexuality or nudity in a film, but I’m very opposed to pornography sites and you’re pretty much giving them material if you do any of that.”
