Natalie Portman in the Miss Dior Cherie ad directed by Sofia Coppola
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Now that Natalie Portman has finally escalated to the point of being a mega movie star and has an Oscar nomination to boot, it’s good that she can land a commercial gig. Oh, but it’s not just any commercial gig, it’s for Miss Dior Cherie and it’s directed by Sofia Coppola. Maybe it’s just me and my fondness for more action-packed commercials (like The Black Mamba from Robert Rodriguez) but this is a little, well dull. It’s beautifully shot and Natalie Portman is, of course, beautiful but is this the best commercial we can get from an Academy Award winning director? It’s very plain but worth watching because it’s short so take a look.
Be sure to watch the 83rd Academy Awards this coming Sunday, February 27th where Natalie Portman is the favorite to win Best Actress for her turn as a mentally disturbed ballerina in BLACK SWAN.
