Natalie Portman Sick Of Stripper & Hooker Roles

Natalie Portman is a very talented actress but you gotta admit, her stripper role in Closer is what you remember her by. Apparently, that’s all everyone associates her with because she has trouble getting any scripts that doesn’t involve playing a stripper or a prostitute.

She says, 'I have recently been getting frustrated with the number of roles for strippers or prostitutes I get - or the opposite, the pure one. That dichotomy exists so strongly.

'It's the virgin-whore thing in evidence to the greatest extent. That's bothering me. I want to find a character who is complicated. I also love comedies, but every time I read a comedy, the girl is in fashion and really into clothes and just wants to get married. I would also love to do a romantic comedy, where the woman has a real job.'

Other celebrities often have trouble getting any roles outside romantic comedies, but Portman has trouble getting those roles. Funny.
