Natalie Portman: Skinny People Are Sad

Eva Mendes

After portraying a ballerina in the upcoming film Black Swan, Natalie Portman says that she’s leaning away from admiring the ultra-thin model look. 

The 29-year-old actress says that she views skinny people as sad now, and physically being that thin is a gloomy affair. 

The new perspective is a contrast to her previous beliefs. Portman said she used to admire the physical appearance of the super skinny, admitting she wanted to look like a model as well. However, after making the transformation into a ballerina for her role, the actress has concluded the other side of the scale doesn’t hold its weight. 

Portman does acknowledge there is a difference between being thin and “ballet” though.
