3. STAR WARS Prequels Nearly Ended Natalie Portman's Career (via GeekTyrant)

It wasn't until Mike Nichols took action to help her land a role in Cold Mountain that things began to turn around for her. Portman, in her own words, on how it happened:

Star Wars had come out around the time of [The Seagull], and everyone thought I was a horrible actress. I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade, and no director wanted to work with me. Mike wrote a letter to Anthony Minghella and said, “Put her in Cold Mountain, I vouch for her.” And then Anthony passed me on to Tom Tykwer, who passed me on to the Wachowskis.

Didn't know that about the Academy Statue. I've been warned! ;)

Some people would say that we were better off with Natalie Portman not acting. But I did enjoy "Garden State."

Great links as always!
The plus side of the Boba Fett car, beside looking uber cool, is if you hit anything you couldn't tell.

I don't usually like the themed cars, as they're generally over the top, but the Boba Fett car is just killer.
