Jake Gyllenhaal interviews Natalie Portman -...
JAKE: What song best describes your current state?
NATALIE: My current state...I’m trying to think of a song that feels like sleepwalking. [laughs] I don’t know. I’ve mostly been listening to dirty rap lately. That’s sort of my scene.
JAKE: Your affection for dirty rap is something that people really don’t know about you, which I think is fascinating. You do incredible things for the world, and then you listen to just completely obscene hip-hop music.
NATALIE: Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much. It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things, so combined...I’ve been listening a lot lately to “Wait (The Whisper Song)” by the Ying Yang Twins, where the lyrics are like, “Wait ’til you see my dick”—which is just amazing because it’s whispered. [whispers] “Wait ’til you see my dick...” [laughs] Crazy. So I just listen to it like I’m a five-year-old, like, “Oh my god! I can’t believe he just said that!”
GYLLENHAAL: It’s interesting that you think the lyric “Wait ’til you see my dick” describes your current state. I think people are learning more about you right now then they ever have in an interview. I’m proud of that.

better know a curator! Curator Ralph Rugoff on curating group exhibitions: “Like an orgy, [a great group exhibition] brings things together in stimulating and unpredictable combinations. It immerses us in an experience of shifting yet interlinked viewpoints and multiple climaxes.” Wow. Hope this guy needs an intern. Comments
