Natalie Portman Naked (Oh Dear)

Fairly soon geeks the world over will fall drop their milk dud-stained Fantastic Four comic books and fall into a furious uproar. And No, the cause is not some new Apple device. Nor is the cause another "Star Wars" prequel. Rather, the cause is Natalie Portman -- joy of geek desiring -- naked. To wit:

"Yesterday we angrily reported that Wes Anderson’s 17-minute short film Hotel Chevalier starring Jason Schartzman and Natalie Portman will not be showing before The Darjeeling Limited after all. Many of you probably didn’t care (I mean Wes Anderson was so 5 years ago, right?). Well now you might. Timeout London is reporting that Natalie Portman appears in the nude."

And of the Wes Anderson film, Time Out London writes:

"This wistful and maudlin short story offers some background to the main attraction as Schwartzmann and Natalie Portman play a pair of estranged lovers who square up to each other in the sumptuous surroundings of a Parisian hotel room.

"If there’s one element of 'Hotel Chevalier' that's surprising for Anderson, it's a strong sense of romance and sexuality: in one shot, Schwartzmann gently pulls off Portman’s clothes to reveal her naked body from behind, and a later shot has Portman, nude, standing still in a doorway, one foot up against the frame. It's the sexiest thing that Anderson has ever done."

That's not all that grand an accomplishment, considering he's also "done" Tara Subkoff.

I'm just saying.
