Natalie Portman not wowed by ‘Thor,’ just its director
HollywoodNews.com: Natalie Portman really isn’t a fan of “Thor,” just its director Kenneth Branagh.
She wasn’t really that smitten with her part of Jane Foster in the upcoming superhero film based on the Marvel comic-book. “Thor” is set to bow in May 2011.
“It was actually not something I was dying to do,” Portman told Total Film. “Not ‘Thor’ in particular, but a big movie.
“When I heard Ken was doing it, I said, ‘Wow that is a daring and interesting idea.’
“Then I met Ken and he was someone I was extremely interested to get to spend three months with. It was probably the first, or one of the first times that my expectations were actually exceeded.”
Portman is hitting the festival circuit with Darren Aronofsky, touring her new thriller “Black Swan.” Buzz has already accumulated on her behalf as a potential best actress Oscar nominee.
Portman was nominated for an Oscar in the best supporting actress category for her turn as a stripper in 2004’s “Closer.”
