Re: Natalie Portman in "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones"
God, her acting was so awful in that film. Christensen's I can understand since he's usually rather weak but Portman gave no fucking effort whatsoever. Since here part was so small in III, it's a rare case where I'd have called for her recasting. Just awful. And then come III Christensen actually did a better job than her.
The truth is that an actor is only as good as her/his director. And as much respect as I have for George Lucas, directing is far from his strong suit.
I hate having thoughts on the top of my head. They usually jump off and commit suicide.
