Natalie Portman plays ‘wild’ pop star in film
Natalie Portman says her Vox Lux character is a “wild, wild woman.”
The 37-year-old actress discussed the movie on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show prior to attending the film’s Los Angeles premiere.
“The film is about this pop singer who sort of is born out of a national tragedy where she, as a kid, writes a song in response to the tragedy and becomes this big star,” Portman told host Ellen DeGeneres.
“Then she turns into kind of a monster and is a wild, wild woman,” she added of her character, Celeste Montgomery.
Portman said she channeled her childhood icons, including Madonna and Tiffany, to portray the role.
