Natalie Portman Will Do Naked in Next Film

by | July 11, 2006 | Comments

This one’s for all you Portman pervs out there — the erstwhile Queen Amidala is set to go fully nude in her upcoming pic "Goya’s Ghosts," in which she plays the persecuted muse of Spanish painter Francisco Goya.

According to Page Six, Natalie Portman will appear sans clothing for the first time in her career in the biopic, much to the delight of legions of fanboys across the globe:

"Portman will play the artist’s muse, who is accused of atheism and then stripped in a torture scene. Portman, 24, was shot naked in "Closer," but begged director Mike Nichols to edit it, and ended up dancing in a thong."

Thong-ed in "Closer," Portman’s ready now for the full monty

"Ghosts" is directed by screen vet Milos Forman ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest," "Amadeus") and co-written by Forman and French writer extraordinaire Jean-Claude Carriere ("Belle du Jour," "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie"). Starring alongside Portman in the period drama will be international all-stars Javier Bardem ("The Sea Inside"), Stellan Skarsgard ("Good Will Hunting"), and…Randy Quaid ("Kingpin")?

The synopsis:

"Goya’s Ghosts is set in Spain between 1792 and 1809, a time of great political upheaval characterized by the Spanish Inquisition and the Napoleonic wars.

Bardem plays Brother Lorenzo, ruthless, both as Inquisitor and evolutionary. Portman is Goya’s teenage muse, Ines, who becomes involved with Lorenzo when she is falsely accused and imprisoned for heresy. Skarsgard plays the Spanish painter Goya, through whose eyes we witness Forman’s great epic."

Natalie Portman, tortured once again…now with the Spanish Inquisition!

The nude-Portman move seems a smart choice for all involved, as "Ghosts" is sure to lure lightsaber-wielding Paduans into buying tickets alongside the arty crowd coming for the multiple Oscar-nominated and -winning cast and crew. And Randy Quaid.
