Natalie Portman’s lifecast – valleywag.com: The whole reality TV is a phenomenon that never captured me. Now it appears that Natalie Portman (Queen Amidala in the unholy Star Wars Prequels) wants to do a project similar to Justin.tv. I don’t now about you, but I have visited Justin to see what the deal is, and besides the incident where one of the viewers played a prank on them by calling the cops, there really isn’t that much to see.
Natalie Portman, the actress who played Queen Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars saga, is touring around Silicon Valley in search of funding for a new project. The winsome movie star, who came to public notice as a 12-year-old in the charge of a grizzled assassin, is proposing a continuous video feed of her work and personal life. One investor that met with her: George Zachary of Charles River Ventures, the former playboy who now gets his kicks by investing at extraordinary valuations. Remind me: when did Silicon Valley go Hollywood?
One of Zachary’s colleagues asked, rather indiscreetly, on Twitter: “How big of an audience do you think natalie portman lifecasting could attract?”
The answer? I’m sure it could draw a crowd, at least initially. Natalie Portman is attractive, and the concept of the celebrity reveal-all is sufficiently fresh, at least on the web. When other Hollywood stars follow the lead, which they will, the novelty will wear off. Then, again, that’s exactly what they’ve been saying about reality television for, oh, about the last five years.
Natalie Portman 24/7? What do you people think?
