It seems … interesting … that an actress fresh off an Academy Award win for a dark, disturbing drama would immediately jump into two stoner comedies, but Natalie Portman is doing just that. Not only is she starring in Your Highness, which opens this week, but she’s also producing and starring in a female buddy comedy called Best Buds, the name of which about says it all. Portman admits that the doobie-ous (get it?) subject matter of these two films is something she has some real life experience with.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, “I love stoner comedies. I smoked weed in college, but I haven’t smoked in years.” We sort of love Portman’s honesty—first she divulged a little too much about her sex life in her Golden Globe acceptance speech, and now this. Portman, who is pregnant, added that she’s changed and doesn’t do that sort of thing anymore. “I’m too old,” she said.
“I wish I was that cool, but I’m like an old lady now. I’m in bed by 10 p.m. I can’t do that anymore.” Us too, Natalie. Us too.
