Natalie Portman turns to directing


Natalie Portman has explained why she had turned her hand to directing, saying there was not always acting work which fulfilled a creative need.

Portman was discussing her short film Eve at the Venice Film Festival, which marks her directorial debut.

The movie stars Lauren Bacall - and Portman said it was "rare" to see someone with the actress's experience and wisdom on screen.

Such was the clamour to see Portman's work when it opened the short films section of the festival on Monday that hundreds of people queued round the block.
