Leaving a crying cast and crew behind in the Levantine dust, Hollywood actress and director Natalie Portman has said au revoir to Israel and bonjour to Paris. The "Black Swan" star has been directing and starring in the film "A Tale of Love and Darkness" on location in her home country of Israel.
Basing herself in Tel Aviv with her recently converted hubby Benjamin Millepied and son Aleph, Natalie has spent the last month and a half working in the conservative neighborhood of Nahlaot in Jerusalem filming this project based on the book written by Amos Oz.
While the residents of Nahlaot couldn't be happier to get Hollywood out of the 'hood, The Times of Israel reported that the actors are feeling a twinge of sadness that the experience is over.
“There’s a hole in my heart,” said actor Gilad Kahane, in an interview on Good Evening with Guy Pines. “It was my first film, but she’s such a wonderful director. She’s confident, she knows what she wants and she’s a great leader.”
