Natalie PortmanAt the SAG Awards last night, actress Natalie Portman received her second Best Actress win for her riveting role in Black Swan. She already scored the Golden Globe and now the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award, and Portman's certainly keeping it sassy in her acceptance speech lineup.
Let's just say Ms. Portman isn't letting formal awards ceremonies, fancy dresses, or her new and wonderfully round maternal image keep down her feisty, honest personality at the microphone. Oh no. What fun would that be?
If her Golden Globe speech raised some prudish eyebrows, then last night's SAG Awards speech, complete with its network bleep, earned her speech at least a PG-13 rating -- and we loved it!
If you missed Natalie Portman's first acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, then you missed this hilarious line about her fiance and Black Swan dancing partner Benjamin Millepied:
"Benjamin choreographed the film, and also you might remember him in the movie as the guy when they ask, 'Would you sleep with that girl?'" she said. "And he's like, 'Pffsh, no.' He's the best actor. It's not true: He totally wants to sleep with me!"
Then, not missing a beat, Portman called out to co-star Mila Kunis, with whom she had a very provocative and much-talked-about sex scene in the movie. She smiled and called Kunis "sweet lips."
So last night at the SAG Awards, it could have gone either way. Would Portman tone it down or continue keepin' in real? Well, we're happy to report she chose the latter in a speech that began with plenty of gracious formality and finished out with a bleeped expletive and some sound parenting advice, passed along from her folks.
My parents who taught me to work my hardest and never be an asshole. It's never acceptable.
Oh, Natalie, we love you. Thanks for keeping it interesting at these awards shows and for further proving maternity doesn't make us any less fierce.
Wow, what colorful tales can we expect at the Oscars, Natalie?
