Say What? Natalie Portman on RomComs


"It wasn't that I didn't want to do comedy. It's just that I would only get offered girlfriend parts in guy comedies, which aren't exciting to me, or those offensive roles in romantic comedies where the woman has to have a job in fashion so that she can have nice clothes, and her goal is always marriage."

— Natalie Portman sums up why some one-dimensional romantic comedies are not fun for an actress, or the audience for that matter.

Love romantic comedies but I also loathe the fact that women's only goal is marriage. Well said, Natalie

I like romantic comedies, but I see where she is coming from as an actress.

Sometimes she's too much. I like her, but I get the feeling she feels like she is so much better, smarter than everyone and has to actively act humble not to show her superiority.

Too true.

There's nothing wrong with it, she used it as an example because it's a Hollywood cliche.

What's wrong with having a job in fashion? Not liking that she used that as an example.

HaHa! Awesome. I used to think she was kind of pretentious (for all I know, she probably is), but this is refreshing to hear! Wish more females had that mindset.

Amen to that! Romantic comedies are everything that is wrong with this society.
