Natalie Portman has made a promise to herself. Never to strip again onscreen. She doesn’t want to find herself on a porn site.

Natalie partially stripped for a sex scene in “Hotel Chevalier” that came out in 2007. That was enough for Internet peeping Tom’s to post stills of her sexy scene all over the web.

She had this to say about it:


“It really depressed me that half of every review on the film was about the nudity. It made me think I shouldn’t have done it.I’m not prudish about nudity. I think it’s beautiful in films, and sex is such a big part of life. My issue is that I feel it takes something away from what you’re doing when the focus is put on the wrong thing. My picture ended up on porn sites, and that’s the dilemma.


The whole experience left Natalie shaken and, had decided to keep her clothes on in films. She told Elle magazine:


“I just don’t want to do something that will end up as a screen grab on a porn site.”


“You look at Meryl Streep, who is so phenomenally, freakishly gorgeous, and, in some ways, it’s just bizarre that she was never a sex symbol, but it was always about her — and now it doesn’t matter that she’s getting older, because we just want to continue watching her be an interesting person.

Whereas you see actresses who marketed themselves on their bodies, and they might be good, but, over time, they just lose it because that sort of thing doesn’t last.”


Natalie who was born in Israel stays away from doing Jewish roles:


I’ve always tried to stay away from playing Jews…I get, like, 20 Holocaust scripts a month, but I hate that genre.”


Good for her! I think she is making a wise decision not to do the nude scenes. There are too many dirty and sick people out there.
