In the September issue of Interview, Jake Gyllenhaal asks Natalie Portman on her favourite '80s toys, who she'd like to see added to Mount Rushmore, and of her love for obscene hip hop.
The two co-star in the upcoming film Brothers, and they both seem very geeky, judging by the interview. At various points in the interview, they discuss their favourite planetarium shows, '80s toys, and even plot a time machine jouney back to the start of civilization.
Somewhere along the lines, Jake tries to psychoanalyze Natalie based on her revealing the fact she used to be scared of Gargamel, the bad guy on The Smurfs.
GYLLENHAAL: Looking at all these things that you've done and contributed to the world so far, I would have thought that the evil wizard Gargamel would've been something you could have very easily stepped over.
PORTMAN: Thank you for saying that, but I'm far from fearless. I'm afraid of everything. But maybe when you're afraid of everything, it sort of seems like you're scared of nothing.
GYLLENHAAL: Well, there's no courage without fear, so you must have great courage because you're afraid of everything.
PORTMAN: That sounds like something from a Batman movie: "There is no courage without fear..."
Jake also seems to be "really good at getting out the dark secrets," as Natalie admits so. He asks her what song reflects her current state and she says all she's been listening to recently is "dirty rap".
GYLLENHAAL: Your affection for dirty rap is something that people really don't know about you, which I think is fascinating. You do incredible things for the world, and then you listen to just completely obscene hip-hop music.
PORTMAN: Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much. It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things, so combined . . . I've been listening a lot lately to "Wait (The Whisper Song)" by the Ying Yang Twins, where the lyrics are like, "Wait 'til you see my dick"-which is just amazing because it's whispered. [whispers] "Wait 'til you see my dick . . . " [laughs] Crazy. So I just listen to it like I'm a five-year-old, like, "Oh my god! I can't believe he just said that!"
GYLLENHAAL: It's interesting that you think the lyric "Wait 'til you see my dick" describes your current state. I think people are learning more about you right now then they ever have in an interview. I'm proud of that.
On the off chance that given the decision, we're almost certain nobody would pick to be in a long distance relationship. Without a doubt, non-appearance influences the heart to become fonder, yet we're calling bullsh*t on that one: being separated from the individual you adore is hard. What's more, to influence it to work - and keep it a sound, useful and sexual, you need to invest effort, responsibility and well, get somewhat innovative. Read more
Life is a precious gift, but it’s all too easy to take it for granted. We assume we’re going to wake up each morning, and may have grievances about our work, or our neighbors, or the weather. We worry about things that we have no control over. All of these things may mean we’re not taking opportunities that are presented to us and we’re not living life to the full because we’re always looking for the negative. Read more
