Natalie Portman looks so comfy on Madame Figaro it makes us want to cuddle up with the magazine!
The Academy Award winning goddess fronts the mag's July issue presenting smoldering appeal that was as spicy as the next dish of falafel.
Shot by Frederic Auerbach, Miz Portman chatted about success, youthfulness, beauty and being a smarty pants.
On being intellectual:
"It is a matter of context. In Hollywood, they consider me a smart woman, but in other circles, I'm probably seen as a silly actress. In America, they see me as European. In Europe, some see me as maybe a stupid American."
On her success:
"I have always considered myself extremely lucky. I know very well that there are very few elected officials in this business and that many of us, despite their talent and hard work, will not come out of the lot. These are the laws of chance."
On her young appearance:
"It's very strange because my physical traits sometimes make it difficult for others to consider me a woman and at the same time I have been in the business for so long that many think I have already passed the 40 year mark."
On being being an object of beauty:
"I obviously do not see myself that way. I prefer 'about beauty' or 'subject of desire'. One can say that about all women, whatever their life and career."
Natalie is definitely a bad babe, so if she doesn't think she's a 'subject of desire,' she should really give the mirror a second look!
Even though we adored the actress' spread, we would love to see her in glam get-ups for future shoots.
What do U think?!?
