Porn has a lot to answer for. Like teen blindness, productivity loss and “unexplainable” system crashes on family computers. But perhaps its most heinous offence is dissuading Natalie Portman from ever appearing nude on film again.
Speaking with The Hindustan Times the 28 year old actress said she was reluctant to strip for the camera after a brief pantless scene in Wes Anderson’s 17 minute “Darjeeling Limited” prelude “Hotel Chevalier” appeared as screen grabs across multiple porn sites.
“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,” Portman said. “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. I just don’t want to do something that will end up as a screen grab on a porn site.”
In light of this statement however, the newly never-nude actress unwittingly put the focus on the “wrong thing”. Last week “Natalie Portman hotel chevalier pics” was a hot search item on Google Trends meaning film screen shots on porn sites are responsible for Natalie Portman’s reluctance to appear nude in films but Natalie Portman talking about Natalie Portman’s reluctance to appear nude in films is responsible for more people looking at nude Natalie Portman film screen shots on porn sites. You don’t need a Harvard degree in Psychology to understand why.
