Gracing the cover of Marie Claire’s November issue, the “Thor” star told the mag that the industry tries to typecast her. Here’s a passage from the interview:
“Like, every Jewish role comes to me,” she says, laughing. Even now, when everyone from Mila Kunis to Scarlett Johansson is of the faith? “I look more Jewish than Scarlett,” Portman deadpans.
If anyone is typecasting Portman, it might just be herself. The actress will star as Israeli author Amos Oz’s mother in “A Tale of Love and Darkness.” The film is her directorial debut.
