Natalie Portman Is Unafraid to Fail: The ‘Vox Lux’ Star Explains How Flawed Movies Made Her More Ambitious — IndieWire Honors
Portman has learned from experience how to take risks, and the gambles keep paying off. Here, she explains her secret.
On November 1, the 2018 IndieWire Honors ceremony will celebrate eight filmmakers and actors for their achievement in creative independence. We’re showcasing their work with new interviews this week.
Natalie Portman is one of the most respected actresses in Hollywood, but has no problem acknowledging an acting record that’s far from spotless. “It takes the fear out of the risk a little more,” she said. “I’ve been in stuff that didn’t work and it didn’t kill me.”
Portman’s willingness to swing for edgy and unorthodox material helps explain a lot about her work in recent years, from her Oscar-winning achievement as a disturbed ballerina in “Black Swan,” to her commanding Jacqueline Kennedy in “Jackie,” and her latest turn in writer-director Brady Corbet’s “Vox Lux.”
