In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the actress admitted she doesn’t like displaying her reward and that she isn’t quite sure where her golden statue is.
“I don’t know where it is. I think it’s in the safe or something. I don’t know. I haven’t seen it in a while.”
Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio stole it.
Natalie explained how her Jewish faith made her realize one should never worship false idols, which prompted her not to display her Oscar she won 4 years ago for her amazing portrayal of Nina Sayers in “Black Swan”.
“I was reading the story of Abraham to my child and talking about, like, not worshipping false idols. And this is literally like gold men. This is literally worshipping gold idols – if you worship it. That’s why it’s not displayed on the wall. It’s a false idol.”
Portman isn’t alone in this. Jennifer Lawrence also said, shortly after winning the Oscar for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook,” that keeping the statue at home made her feel uncomfortable.
“My parents took it back to Kentucky,” the actress told Access Hollywood. “I felt odd having it, like, on display in my house. If anybody’s coming over to my house, I didn’t want them to remember that. Just kind of puts a weird energy out.”
“My mum was like, ‘I’m taking it. It shouldn’t be here. And now it’s on a piano in Kentucky!”
