Natalie Does Her Best Audrey

Natalie Portman is glowing on the cover of the upcoming issue of Harper's Bazaar. The very lucky girl got to wear the same dress Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Natalie is often compared to Audrey, so it's really a perfect fit for the cover, and Natalie loved the time she spent in the icon's dress. Here's more:

“I did feel very elegant suddenly,” Portman tells the magazine. “I mean, you can’t possibly measure up to Audrey Hepburn; there’s no comparison. But the elegance that she exuded was transmitted to the dress, you know, the feeling, the emotion of it.”

The dress, one of three versions made for the 1961 movie, will be sold to the highest bidder on Dec. 5 at Christie’s auction house in London. It’s expected to fetch as much as $130,000.

“I was so nervous that I wasn’t going to fit,” Portman says. “Everyone kept telling me how small it was, and I’m not the type who can starve myself. I’m small, but it’s not like I’m see-through.”

I don't think anyone can ever be compared to Audrey and I think comparing celebs to her is just a marketing strategy to get Audrey fans to pay attention. I also don't think the rolls Natalie takes are similar to anything Audrey would take. She looks like her a little, but as a reporter said about Audrey, "Audrey Hepburn looks like every girl and no girl" and that is totally true. However I do like Natalie. And I suppose I'm just jealous she got to wear the original dress! Yeah, as my friend Miss Golightly said, Jennifer Love Hewitt produced the movie and specifically cast herself as Audrey because she was itching to get into the Audrey clothing. I don't think she ever expected it to be successful, she was just being selfish. I don't think JLH will ever live down the mistake she made. But half of the people who say they love Audrey Hepburn don't even bother to learn about her or nothing and that is pathetic.

I can say that I do like Natalie Portman to a certian extent but she is not Audrey, and really no one is. I myself am a huge fan of Audrey but I would NEVER try to compare myself to her. Also considering Natalie has probably not even seen any of her movies other than Breakfast at Tiffany's,and not been within 100 feet of a biography, she shouldn't try to imatate her. As far as the Audrey Hepburn Story goes, I really recomend you watch it, because if youre as much of a fan as me, you'll get some laughs out of seeing Jenifer Love Hewit butcher the role of Audrey. Oh, by the way, Jenifer Love Hewit produced this movie, thats why she was "chosen" for the role.

I'm glad people are talking about Audrey again. Audrey was so classy and tactful. I think she is the best example of who an actress should be like. Audrey was the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and visited poor countries to help orphaned children. She was such a wonderful person and I would give anything to have her posture! Even when I sit and stand straight I can't have it. I've started pilates because I heard that helped.

I loved her in The Professional. I thought she sucked in V for Vendetta. She had the worst Brittish accent I had ever heard. I couldn't believe my ears. It was a great movie but everytime she spoke I cringed. Yikes.

Softrock-thats what I was going to say. She produced the movie and cast herself as Audrey. It wasn't something someone thought was good casting it was what JLH wanted to do. Lucky Natalie getting to wear one of the Breakfast at Tiffany's dresses!

JLH played Audrey Hepburn because she produced the TV movie. I'm not a big fan of NP--she seems too self-aware of herself for me.

coloring maybe..frame..hell no! j-love has major titties...audrey was a waif. i actually thought calista flockheart was more of a match in that regard...same level of acting ability as j-love and had her build at least and calista has a bit of an elfish look to her as well...

She's beautiful, no doubt, but no resemblance to Audrey.

I think one day Natalie Portman may be a legend in her own right, as will Scarlett Johanssen, and Reese Witherspoon. I like to see the actresses of my generation aspire to be as great as the actresses of my mother and grandmother's time. The only reason I think they chose Jennifer Love Hewitt to portray Audrey was because she had Audrey's frame and coloring. It definitely wasn't for her acting ability.
