Portman goes bare in Wes Anderson’s ‘Hotel Chevalier’


When Wes Anderson's "The Darjeeling Limited" expands Friday to about 600-700 screens, moviegoers will get two unexpected treats: his 13-minute "Part 1" intro to the film, "Hotel Chevalier," and the first big-screen glimpse of star Natalie Portman's bare derriere. 

Aside from providing a distraction from publicity over " Darjeeling" star Owen Wilson's late August suicide attempt, the big-screen "Chevalier" bow capitalizes on Portman's decision to do nude scenes after years spent resisting it. She asked director Mike Nichols to remove the nudity from her portrayal of a stripper in "Closer" and used a body double in Milos Forman's "Goya's Ghosts."   

When asked why she agreed to do the brief scenes, Portman said: "I don't know why, exactly. Sometimes you make rules for yourself and sometimes those rules are made to be broken. You have to test things out and see what works for you, and this felt right."
