Natalie's wedding to French dude... what does that have to do with anything?

So, Natalie Portman finally got around to marrying the father of her 14 month-old child, blah, blah, vegan, blah, blah, traditional ceremony, blah, blah.

Contrary to popular belief, I neither love the woman, nor hate her, however she did say something that initially came off just a tad offensive and a little creepy, in my opinion.

A New York girl, born in Israel, she said the following to France's Madame Figaro magazine: "I now have the possibility of taking on French nationality. It would accomplish the Francophile dreams of my father and myself."

So, she's been waiting around for some handsome French dude just to become French, too? Just like her father always wanted? I guess being an all-American boy means I had no chance from the start! (And forget about Hayden Christensen. He's Canadian for God's Sake!)

The next quote deluded the offensiveness of the first quote when I read it, but it still doesn't absolve it of the slightly creepy influence her father has on her.

"I lived in Paris when I was 12 [probably while filming Leon: The Professional] and my father gave me the name Natalie as an homage to Gilbert Bécaud's song. Everything in my life has drawn me towards a French family."

Not that I look really hard, but you really don't hear much about her mother, who apparently doubles as her agent, but you always hear about her father who's a fertility specialist and gynecologist (but probably not her gynecologist, because that would just be creepy beyond words!).

I don't know. Those words just... rubbed me wrong.

As we've come to know over the years, Natalie Hershlag Millipede specializes in the offensive and creepy. For all of her beauty and intelligence, she has a talent for uttering stuff that makes you go, "WTF?" And it's been that way a looong time. The funny thing is I bet she and the Mr. will continue to maintain residence in the good ol' U.S. of A. just long enough to avoid paying the massive tax increases the new Socialist government in France is promising to dump on the wealthy.

As for Pops, have you heard about him trying his hand at writing a novel? It's really creepy.

Poor little Aleph. That kid has zero chance at a normal life.

Exactly. I still resent her for comparing meat-eating people to rapists in an interview a couple of years ago.
I know! And yet she quickly added her name to a petition calling for the release of Roman Polanski--an actual rapist--when the Swiss nabbed him a few years ago and almost shipped him to the U.S.. Maybe they should have accused Polanski of eating a steak.

I love Padmé to bits but Natalie in real life...all I can say is please, for the love all that's good and holy, don't ever give her a Twitter account :O.
The major thing that gets me about her is that apparently she decided to become a vegan after seeing how veal is made, yet her father is(was?) an abortionist.

There's bound to be a fake Natalie Twitter account out there somewhere, right? Fake Twitter accounts are all the rage these days, from what I've heard.
