Natalie Portman reflects on attending Cannes with ‘shaved head’
Natalie Portman News
Natalie Portman, the soccer manager, is returning to Cannes. The Angel City FC co-owner, along with Serena Williams, Mia Hamm, and Eva Longoria, will be at Cannes for her appearance in Todd Haynes’ May December.
In the drama, Portman plays Elizabeth, an actress training to play Gracie (Moore), a woman caught in a tabloid controversy who is married to a much younger guy (Riverdale’s Charles Melton).
Portman spoke to The Hollywood Reporter ahead of the debut of May December about her previous experiences at the festival.
Among her favorite memories is going to Cannes with a shaved head, the Black Swan actress indicated.
“We premiered Star Wars: Episode II there, and I had a shaved head because I was doing V for Vendetta. So I went to Cannes with a shaved head that year. That was wild. And I had a movie that year in competition, Free Zone. That was fun. Everyone was just rubbing my head like I was their troll doll. Troll doll minus the hair.”
Portman also revealed her Cannes habits, which involve drinking at Hotel du Cap and finding a dance party.
Responding to a question about Cannes resolving its negative history with women, the actress replied.
“I’m happy that they’ve been pressured to do so. I obviously wish it were a lot farther along.”
