On the heels of a recent interview, Natalie Portman‘s nude scene from the short film Hotel Chevalier has gone viral again.
In the interview, Portman says “It really depressed me that half of every review on the film was about the nudity. It made me think I shouldn’t have done it.”
“I’m not prudish about nudity. I think it’s beautiful in films, and sex is such a big part of life. My issue is that I feel it takes something away from what you’re doing when the focus is put on the wrong thing. My picture ended up on porn sites, and that’s the dilemma,” she added.
Hotel Chevalier is a short film by Wes Anderson that proceeded “The Darjeeling Limited,” and provided background of the relationship between Natalie Portman and Jason Schwartzman‘s characters.
