Girl Crush: Natalie Portman
[There are some women out there that we just can’t get out of our minds. No, we aren’t switching teams - yet - but we do have some serious crushes on some pretty fierce females. These ladies are all special in their own right and we aren’t ashamed to tell the world we love them.]
When guys tell me that they think Natalie Portman is the hottest girl alive, I secretly jump for joy. I’ve been crushing hard on Natalie Portman for.e.ver, because on top of being a great actress, she also seems like a real person — the type of girl you’d want to be best friends with.
For starters she’s beautiful and brainy. I mean the girl is a Harvard grad! And brainiacs (OK, nerds) around the globe fell head over heels for her for her role as Padme Amidala in the Star Wars prequels. She continued to be loved by guys everywhere for her role in V for Vendetta. And I’m sure many guys fled to the theatres to see her naked in Hotel Chevalier.
But she isn’t just for the boys. She’s appeared in chick flicks such as Where the Heart Is, Anywhere But Here, The Other Boleyn Girl and Closer. Not to mention everyone’s favorite indie flicks, Garden State and My Blueberry Nights. Her roles have greatly varied, showing that she’s a versatile actress.
And, come on, Natalie Portman is absolutely gorgeous as well. She’s the muse of Zac Posen; guest-judged on Project Runway; posed as Audrey Hepburn on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar; and very few ladies can pull off a shaved head, but Natalie rocked it, along with some super cute boyish hairstyles while her hair grew back.
Unlike some other Hollywood starlets, though, my BFF Natalie doesn’t spend her days eating fro-yo and buying expensive handbags. This girl’s a do-gooder. She was named the first Ambassador of Hope for FINCA International. I mean, she visits sick children in the hospital multiple times a week and even designs vegan shoes!
Her taste in men is at times questionable to the outside viewer, but that makes me crush harder. The fact she doesn’t have an apparent “type” is something a lot of us girls can relate to. She’s been linked to Jude Law, Ryan Gosling, Jake Gyllenhaal and even Robert Pattinson. So, pretty much a truckload of hot men.
She’s the girl that is so amazing that you almost hate her. And while I’m jealous of how awesome she is (and funny – have you heard the Natalie’s Rap?), I’d rather declare my girl crush than try to shove her in a locker.
Oh, and Natalie? If you’re still considering a relationship with another chick, give me a call. I’d totally switch teams for you.
