Natalie Portman’s Son Hasn’t Seen Star Wars Prequels


Natalie Portman. You may remember her from Black Swan, Thor, or V For Vendetta. Oh, I’m missing a big one? Oh yes…the Star Wars prequels. My memory must have done that repression thing again. Any-who, the above video features Natalie Portman on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In it, she talks about how her son is a huge Star Wars fan but she refuses to let her son see the prequels! That’s understandable, right?

Natalie Portman's son hasn't seen Star Wars prequels
It has two of her kids on this fine tapestry!

“It’s kind of a shame,” Natalie Portman stated. “You know, when I made it, I was like, ‘This is going to be the coolest thing. One day when I have kids, I can show them’. And boys, of course, are obsessed with it and know all about it before they’ve seen it.” She continued, “I realized, I die in the movies. I feel like it’s kind of a scary thing to show your kid.”

Ah, I bet most of you thought she didn’t show her kid the movie because of it…um…being the prequels! Oh, and Youngling slaughter. That might be a bit more traumatic than Natalie Portman dying, right? Joking aside, it does seem to be a valid compliant…that and Jar-Jar Binks. You don’t want that guy giving your kids nightmares, do you?
