I was reading an interview that Natalie Portman did with the Times Online and came across a few things that caught my eye.
“Itâ€™s hard to imagine that in 2002, she co-hosted a new-year party with Britney Spears. What on earth did the two have in common? â€œWe both had the same first job. We both understudied for an off-Broadway musical called Ruthless. I never met her, but I took over from her when she left to join the Mickey Mouse Club. So we connected over that. She invited me to a few things and my guy friends at college said, â€˜We have to go.â€™ Iâ€™m sad to see how everyoneâ€™s treating her now.”
“And, of course, while Portman is famously Jewish, Johansson is a lesser-known Jew (because of her Scandinavian father, sheâ€™s called â€œthe kosher Danishâ€).”
Ok, not that I care of make myself the arbiter of all that is hip, cool or interesting, but I have never heard her called The Kosher Danish. Not that any of this really out matters, but part of the joy of the blog is being able to document these random thoughts.
