My Weekend Crush
Natalie Portman is pretty much perfect. She’s smart (Harvard, bitches). She’s talented (Oscar nominee by age 22). She’s gorgeous (Audrey Hepburn this). She’s classy (no vajayjay for you, paparazzi). She’s globally conscious (micro-loans ambassador/vegan shoes designer/do-gooder extraordinaire). She’s dating a shaggy-haired indie musician (OK, that part is a tad cliché, but I actually like his music so we’re cool). Oh, and she’s a surprisingly good rapper (damn, Natalie, you a crazy chick). Pretty much, at 26, she makes you feel like you haven’t done anything with your life. But, you know, in a good way. No, I mean it. Fine, if she didn’t also seem so sincere, conscientious and intelligent, you’d probably hate her. But she does. So you don’t. Instead, you’re genuinely happy for her successes, not to mention geuinely happy that someone actually worthy of the term “role-model” still exists in Hollywood. Happy weekend, all.
