So Yahoo’s headline for a story about Natalie Portman’s skin-baring Dior makeup ad is “Natalie Portman sheds conservative image in nude Dior ad.” Is it just me, or is “conservative” an odd word to use for someone who went onscreen clam-diving with Mila Kunis?
The photos were shot by the guy who did 2011’s Pirelli calendar (an elite publication featuring nude models and actresses). Yahoo! brings up the “high-necked dress” Portman wore on her wedding to back up her prudish image, then casually namedrops Black Swan in the next paragraph.
Watch Hesher, Your Highness, Closer, and the extended version of The Professional and argue that she’s conservative. Just try.
