Natalie Portman is on set in Paris shooting scenes for the upcoming movie, Planetarium, a 1930s drama where she plays the sister of Johnny Depp's 16-year-old daughter Lily-Rose, and in new photos, the two look like they could be sisters in real life!
Details on the film’s plot are being kept close to the vest, but the story will center on Natalie and Lily-Rose's relationship as sisters who are both thought to be able to connect with ghosts,Varietyreports. The film is being directed by French filmmaker Rebecca Zlotowski (Grand Central) and Natalie is said to be beefing up her French for the role.
Planetarium is Natalie's first time working with a French director since Leon: The Professional in 1994. ET was with a young Natalie back then, who said her parents were concerned with some of the movie's adult themes!
"My parents were uncomfortable with some parts," the then-13 year old admitted. "There is a lot of cursing and so they took out some of the cursing, and they were uncomfortable with the smoking, so they said I could take three puffs. It's an herbal cigarette, it's not a real cigarette."
While on set back then, Natalie also was trying to have a run-in with none other than Brad Pitt! She mentioned how Brad Pitt had come to a screening of the film the day before, but left before the young actress had a chance to meet him.
"My friend and I were really upset, so my agents tried to set up a lunch for us today but I don't know," she said with a giggle. "But I am really excited if it does [happen]. Because I love Brad Pitt."
