Natalie Portman wants to make out in public

With a surprise pregnancy, an engagement and plenty of Oscar buzz for her performance in "Black Swan," all eyes are on Natalie Portman. But if the actress could go unrecognized for just one day, she knows exactly how she'd spend it.

"I would make out in the park!" Portman tells February's InStyle magazine, on sale January 14. "That's the thing I would most enjoy doing in New York, and it's something I'll never do."

And that's not all.

"I'd also have loud, public conversations with my friends about personal things. Even if no one is paying attention — and most of the time, no one cares — you never know who is at the next table."

In December, Portman announced that she and French-born dancer Benjamin Millipied, her "Black Swan" choreographer, were not only getting married but also expecting a baby. Clearly 33-year-old Millipied possesses everything she wants in a partner.

"I look for all the same things I would in a friend," she tells InStyle of the qualities she wants in a mate. "Obviously, you need the sexual attraction too, so it's like your best friend who you are also really attracted to."

Portman explores that topic further in "No Strings Attached," a romantic comedy in which she and Ashton Kutcher play friends with benefits.

“I certainly have friends who could deal with that and others who could not,” she says. “It’s something I’ve seen in high-achieving women — they compartmentalize. You’ve got your work, your friends, your exercise, and your sex. [Grins.] You can tick off those boxes.”

"No Strings Attached" arrives in theaters January 21.

    So glad I am not famous and thus do not have to see my name on blogs being discussed so blatantly. If Natalie reads up on article blogs she will definately see that many a peep would 'tap' that, as y'all so eloquently put it. How lovely for her, being a mastarbutory image for all.

    So basically the woman who chose being an exhibitionist for a living (i.e., actress) is upset cuz she can't be an exhibitionist in the real world also. Waaaaaaaaahhh!

    Please do not believe anything what so ever she said. This is just another ploy of free Marketing and Publicity for her upcoming flick. Stuff Happens in America.

    I don't think anyone would recognize her. She"s rather plain looking. Put a pair of sunglasses on and she's looks just like half the young women in Manhattan.

    Who wouldn't want to make-out in a park, let alone with Natalie Portman? She's godly beautiful. I'm not a lesbian, but I'd tap that. Hands down.

    Good Lord!!!! Why do so many people lack the ability to spell correctly? I mean, really? Is it that hard? Focus for just a few seconds and double check what you type.

    • da kollege hood ratt

      If you're referring to the first poster its called hood shorthand. With=wit, cause=cuz, that=dat, never=neva. We poor people used to pay per letter when we text so we developed shorthand to cut down costs and to mimic the way we speak in our urban environment. They teach a class at my old alma matter on urban speech and writing practices.

      Where did that one come from? Shakira might be a crazy Islamisc terrorist? There's enough mediocrity Without adding to it. Anyway this is about Natalie not shakira though both good artists in their respective fields.
