sporting this AWESOME cover,
the newest issue of Interview magazine has an interview conducted by our favorite Jake Gyllenhaal (who’s sharing the screen with Portman in the upcoming Brothers) PLUS! with some good looking photos by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin – those are some though names to type.
In the interview they discuss things like Lincoln’s amazing face, how crazy laser shows in the 70s must’ve been like, being a kid of the 80’s… and obscene hip hop music. (…)
GYLLENHAAL: Your affection for dirty rap is something that people really don’t know about you, which I think is fascinating. You do incredible things for the world, and then you listen to just completely obscene hip-hop music.
PORTMAN: Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much. It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things, so combined . . . I’ve been listening a lot lately to “Wait (The Whisper Song)” by the Ying Yang Twins, where the lyrics are like, “Wait ’til you see my dick”—which is just amazing because it’s whispered. [whispers] “Wait ’til you see my dick . . . ” [laughs] Crazy. So I just listen to it like I’m a five-year-old, like, “Oh my god! I can’t believe he just said that!”
I totally didn’t expect that. But way too funny. Other things we’ve learned from Natalie on this interview? That she is a total wuss…
PORTMAN: [laughs] I remember as a kid being really scared of the Smurfs.
GYLLENHAAL: The Smurfs?
PORTMAN: Because that bad guy, Gargamel, was so terrifying. I was scared of a lot of cartoons. I’m kind of wussy like that.
You can enjoy the whole thing over the Interview Magazine site.
