All of the movie roles go to Natalie Portman!
Just last week, it was announced that the 33-year-old was cast for the role of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the film, On The Basis of Sex!
Now, the Oscar winner is set to play another historical figure — Jackie Kennedy for the upcoming biopic Jackie!

The story will follow the iconic first lady right after the assassination of her husband, President John. F. Kennedy. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky is set to produce the film.
This isn't the first time Jackie-O will be portrayed on the big screen. Katie Holmes played her in the miniseries The Kennedys and Minka Kelly did a brief but heartbreaking portrayal in The Butler.
We think that Portman is an excellent choice to play the first lady at the time when she lost the love of her life but won the love of a nation!
Do U think the actress is a good choice for the role?

Don't tell the Academy!
Natalie Portman may have impressed the movie world enough to win the Oscar for Best Actress back in 2010, but she doesn't seem to really care about that anymore.
That's because the Black Swan actress doesn't even know where the statuette is!
In a recent interview, the 33-year-old admitted that she doesn't feel comfortable admiring her win, saying:

This seems a little harsh!
Director Darren Aronofsky is irrefutably an amazing director, but this sounds a bit too far — one of his stars, Emma Watson, fell ill because he thought it was a good idea to ban

According to screenwriter, Brian Godawa, film director and producer, Darren Aronofsky wrote a “vegan hippy-like” version of Noah's Ark, which stars Russell Crowe.
But because the religious tale is getting a Hollywood twist, Godawa is disappointed with all the fantasy that's going into the film.
“Noah explains that his family ‘studies the world,’ ‘healing it as best we can,’ like a kind of environmentalist scientist. But he also mysteriously has the fighting skills of an ancient Near Eastern Ninja.”
The screenwriter added that Noah was portrayed as an "environmental wacko," and although he doesn't have a problem with the animal rights or vegan spectrum of the film, he does NOT like the darkness that comes with it.

But it's probably safe to say that we ALL find it ironic.
Emma Watson took to Twitter to share her concerns with director Darren Aronofsky and leading man Russell Crowe upon learning that Hurricane Sandy was shutting down production on Noah.
Seeing the irony, she tweeted:
The giant replica of the biblical arc is located

We've been excited for Hugh Jackman's next go as Wolverine in the aptly titled The Wolverine for a long time now. We were especially excited when Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct.
Sadly, he isn't anymore. That doesn't mean we've lost hope, though, as James Mangold has stepped in to helm the Wolvering-in-Japan flick! Plus, Hugh Jackman is gorgeously ripped. Need we say more??
We've heard that this movie takes place after the events in the X-Men trilogy, but we've also heard there are flashback scenarios too! So fab!
We just hope it earns an R rating!
