Natalie Portman to Go Naked

We can already hear Jerry Springer creepily wringing his hands in rapt anticipation. According to those intrepid Page Sixxies:
"NATALIE Portman will do 'the full Monty' and appear totally naked in her new film, 'Goya's Ghosts,' a biopic on Spanish painter Francisco Goya. Portman will play the artist's muse, who is accused of atheism and then stripped in a torture scene. Portman, 24, was shot naked in 'Closer,' but begged director Mike Nichols to edit it, and ended up dancing in a thong. Portman denied at the time that she was doffing her duds to shed her childlike Princess Amidala persona from 'Star Wars.' 'I don't do it in order to prove something,' she said. 'I just go on with my life and do what feels right.'"
We're not quite sure Goya rates the naked treatment from a World Class beauty like Natalie Portman. Rembrandt van Rijn, El Greco and Vermeer, fer sure (Old Masters and Young Mistresses go well together); but Goya, for all his moody, overrated charm ... debatable. (Averted Gaze)
