IGN Interviews Natalie Portman

Zonk posted about 9 years ago | from the please-refrain-from-anything-petrified dept.

Movies 256

feller writes "IGN FilmForce has posted an interview with Natalie Portman from yesterday's Comic Con regarding her new film, V For Vendetta (written by Andy and Larry Wachowski, creators of The Matrix trilogy) and also covering everything from misguided fans, to what merits the use of violence, to Portman's own opinions about graphic novels. From the interview: 'Most of the Q&A session was dominated with questions for Natalie Portman, the star of the film. While the questions leveled at her ranged from weird to repetitive, one confused young man asked if starring in movies like Mighty Ducks was different than starring in films like V for Vendetta. Problem is, Ms. Portman never starred in Mighty Ducks. '"

What is the fascination with her, anyway? She hasn't been in a good movie since Leon and Beautiful Girls and those were both more than a decade ago. All she's done since then is Star Wars (I'm assuming she was in all three new Star Wars films and not jus the first one) and some random crap that nobody has watched or cares about.

Bruce Campbell I understand. But are all the slashdot fanboys going to get their pants all wet over a chick who's recent roles included playing a pregnant teenage piece of white trash camping out at WalMart with Susan fucking Sarandon?!

To be honest, I didn't quite understand the hot grits phenomena when I made my post. I just got a "Nothing to see here" page (wee! First time ever), so I thought to myself "hey, hot grits tends to be mentioned when an article's about an attractive person, I'll say I was hoping to see hot grits."

I found it quite amusing when I learnt the hot grits is traditionally centered around Portman.

If you don't care, don't read and don't post. Very easy, very simple.

I disagree. Posting comments like that is the easiest and arguably the best way for readers to indicate that they don't like the direction in which a site like /. is heading. (provided of course the editors ever actually read comments...)

I got a similar reply as yours to a comment I placed about the 'Bruce Campbell' story.

Of course I don't have to read that article nor this one. But it seems fair to bitch about it when a place you frequent for a certain type of information seems to take a weird turn and start reporting on stuff that you really don't care about.

The comment system is specifically designed to moderate comments that aren't appreciated, and the OP got mod'd +5, so obviously (s)he is not the only one feeling that way.

In other words; I appreciate a lot of stuff that gets posted on /. and I really would like to continue reading it. But without trying to sound too dramatic, between these type of stories, the dupes and the stories that are rediculously biased and/or plain flamebait, I'm starting to wonder what's happening to good ole /.

I mean, you gotta honestly wonder if Taco (& the others) are really actively working on this site anymore.

The post is valid "News for Nerds" because the subject is an Alan Moore graphic novel. I would imagine that if you're a reg here, you would at least be familiar with either Watchmen or V for Vendetta (although I'm partial to his HellBlazer run).

No they shouldn't. People like you who desend into moral hysteria about peoples thoughts should be shot. There are far more "sick" things than thinking about underage sex, though you seem to think that a thought crime is worse than all these by advocating a penalty that is not applied to even the worse crimes, except in some parts of the USA. Strange the way the "moral" people are far more likely to advocate death.

Re:You guys are behind the times (0)

maxpublic (450413) | about 9 years ago | (#13085723)

That would be "descend".

And any way you slice it, people who fantasize about banging prepubescents are seriously fucked up. That isn't normal, natural, or even rational.

There are far more "sick" things than thinking about underage sex

Sure. Actually *having* sex with prepubescents. Here, I'll edit my original statement like so:

"we should THINK about putting people who fantasize about having sex with children up against a wall and shooting them"


"anyone who has sex with a prepubescent should be put up against a wall and shot"

That make you feel better?

though you seem to think that a thought crime is worse than all these

No, I think fantasizing about having sex with children makes you a sick motherfucker, and not someone I want to associate with in any way, shape or form.

Strange the way the "moral" people are far more likely to advocate death.

Never claimed to be "moral", though you seem fine with the misquote. Guess my "hysteria" was infectious.

Dunno. Have you read V for Vendetta? There are a lot of historical and literary references ranging from Homer and Shakespeare to the Rolling Stones. Maybe Hyper-intellectual is a bit of an exaggeration, but they're certainly intellectual.

Alan Moore is quite clearly trying to turn the comic book into a recognised an artform in its own right.

Camping with Natalie (-1, Troll)

Anonymous Coward | about 9 years ago | (#13085419)

There in the woods lies a 20 by 20 foot cinder block room packed with nude Jews and the one and only Natalie Portman stripped to the raw. Above in the ceiling is an opening to a chute. Natalie Portman and the Jews are packed in like rats. Suddenly the chute opens, and in pours tons of steaming hot grits. The grits overflow the Jews. The grits are steaming hot. The Jews are roasting among the hot grits. Soon they are choking, drowning in steaming hot grits. The Jews gasp and gasp but the grits are too powerful. Soon, a room of scalded steamed Jews is silent. Natalie Portman is forever silenced, having experienced the same fate.

The next morning the sun comes up. A cock is crowing in the background. The Jews are dead and still. Suddenly the side door to the cinder block room of grits opens. Many Jews and pounds and pounds of stiff grits spill into the swine yard.

There in the beauty of early morning Nordic sunshine, the bodies of the Jews are feasted upon by swine. They gobble the Jews and grits in a feeding frenzy. The Jewish fat flavors the grits not unlike hocks. The swine feast upon the grits and Jews. The sunshine sparkles. And all is good in the world.

Later workers hose off the grits stuck to the uneaten corpses. Natalie Portman lies petrified among the grits in a humorous posture suggesting either sexual ecstasy or horrible trauma. A blue jay sitting in a tree above looks on and thinks how curious that pain and sexual pleasure are so entwined.

Natalie Portman is silent and petrified. As the stiff grits are hosed from her naked corpse, it is apparent that she was at the height of her menstrual flow. Her vaginal discharge lends a pinkish tone to the grits which smothered her. The blue jay smiles and nods knowingly. He knows. Oh my god he knows.

Later, after Natalie Portman's petrified rigor mortis corpse is clean of grits, it is encased in liquid Lucite which preserves her comical pose. After it hardens, her petrified remains are then shipped to Arabia to serve as a greasy Muhammadan sheik's paper weight. The sheik will stare at Natalie Portman's bizarre corpse within its clear Lucite tomb and masturbate while dreaming of what might have been.

"The case also targets the producers of the Terminator franchise."

With the date difference between the matrix and the terminator, I'd say she just wrote a script about governing computer mainframes and machines in the 70's, submitted it to a bunch of people, noticed some story similarities, and obsessively thought they stole her work...lawyers...profit!!!

Re:Writers of the Matrix? (1) (882444) | about 9 years ago | (#13085551)

Now there's news for some nerds, stuff that matters, nice to see i'm not the only one who actually knows this.

This case was actually known by the time of the release of the first Matrix movie, but Warner Bros has been covering this up so they could make all the profit possible before it blew up.

I for one wouldn't mind the aditional accuracy in the OP:
"(allegedly written by Andy and Larry Wachowski, creators of The Matrix trilogy)"

evidence that the same person(s) wrote all three (3, Insightful)

MegaFur (79453) | about 9 years ago | (#13085720)

(I admit the "evidence" that I present in a moment is rather weak, but then I also think the claims made by this Sophia person are extremely, deeply stupid. IMHO, the idea that she originally created scripts with material used for both the Matrix and Terminator is a typically pathetic urban legend. Just like aligators live in the sewers or that NASA didn't send missions to the moon.)

Evidence (weakly--really more like hearsay, but at least it's someone I consider reliable): In the first half of this vmyths article [] , Rob Rosenberger claims to have been asked to serve as technical advisor for the Matrix.

The studio sent him materials describing the plot of the movie. When he went to the theater and saw the Matrix, it didn't end like he thought it would. Later, after finding out what was in store for Matrix: Reloaded, he realized the reason the first movie hadn't ended like he'd expected was because the studio materials the studio had sent him had been used in the making of all three movies.


I really don't think Matrix 2 and 3 are so different from the first one. What makes them seem so different is that the first film had a miraculous revelation--that the world we thought was real isn't. The 1st film spent time exploring this notion and let us in on the whole thing slowly. Unfortunately, once the concept of The Matrix had been established, the not-so-bright Wachowski brothers had no new revelations to top it. This happens frequently. I see many, many, many movies, indeed stories in general, that start out with a lot of promise, but are ultimately not able to follow through when it comes around to the middle and especially the end. This is because it's the mystery that survives, not the explanation. To put that another way: it's much easier to ask a thought provoking and inspiring "what if?" question than it is to come up with an equally profound, deeply meaningful answer. 42.

After the first movie had been seen, but before the 2nd or 3rd movies came out, people had a lot of time (waaay too much time) to build up naive ideas about what direction the trilogy would eventually take. Fan expectations rose ever higher, and it's no surprise that the eventual conclusion could not live up to those (unrealistic) expectations.

Please go back and watch The Matrx (#1) again sometime--try to throw away all those ideas about what you thought it was supposed to mean and just watch the thing--I think you'll find it's not quite so brilliant as you may have led yourself to believe.

(P.S. Hope I didn't flame--if so, I didn't mean to, I'm just opinionated.)

The second and third movies are so pathetic, that it's obvious to anyone who has seen the movies that they weren't written by the same people.

Just because there is a lawsuit aleging that the idea was stolen doesn't mean that it actually is. First of all, Sophia Stewart's claim is not only that the plot of The Matrix was stolen from her (unreleased) book "The Third Eye", but also that the plot of The Terminator was aswell. What do these two movies have in common:

1) Machines take over
2) ... erm... cool special effects?

How is it possible that two movies with completely different storylines were stolen from one book? It's quite obvious that she has simply noticed a few similarities between her book and these two movies, and decided to profit from it, as well as get publicity for her book which she has now decided to publish.

Re:Yes, writers of The Matrix (1)

ndogg (158021) | about 9 years ago | (#13085704)

The Terminator and the Matrix aren't all that different if you think about it, and it's not to hard to fathom that the Terminator could be considered a prequel to the Matrix.

In the Matrix, the world is controlled by the machines after the humans lost the war to them. In the Terminator, the machines are in war with humans to gain control of the world.

Re:Yes, writers of The Matrix (1)

She's also sueing the Terminator for the same script. Seeing as how the only overlap between the Terminator and the Matrix is the sentient computer I gather that's what the lawsuit is about. And seeing as how a three year old playing an X-Box could have thought up this idea, I have as much or more of a right to call her a litigious bitchy arsehole trying to legally steal other peoples money as you have calling Andy and Larry Wachowski plagerisers.

I think that the user that started this troll was OSM, or open source man. Sometimes he was troll, other times he wasn't. Compared with todays trolls he really wasn't. If not him, one of his aquaintances for sure.

He wrote a couple of very funny essays, some a little off color and R rated, but nowhere near the level of trolling that you see with the gnaa ilk.

Anyway, he started the whole "petrified" bit that was added on to the "hot grits".

It became such a large meme that I think slashcode was modified so anononymous posters could not make Natalie Portman-hot grits and petrified posts.

For me, I lost interest in Ms. Portman when I saw that picture of her scratching her butt while on the cell phone. Truly iconic. Does anybody have a link to this?

Alan Moore didn't like this movie (4, Informative)

Dionysus (12737) | about 9 years ago | (#13085443)

Usually, Alan Moore, who wrote the graphic novels, doesn't comment on the quality of the movies that are made based on his stories. This is the first movie he actually slammed, and the reason we won't see any more Hollywood movies based on his stories (nor will he work with DC Comics again)

Bah, quit yer whining! (2, Insightful)

While everyone's all "wah, what is slashdot coming to, why do I need to know what some so-called actress says", I'd like to remind you that Ms. Portman has long been a geekboy fantasy, and as such is entitled to a place of honor in good'ole Slashdot.

Plus, I challenge any red-blooded geek to see the film Garden State [] and not fall in love with the woman. I mean it; you really should check out that movie, the quirky, original script alone makes it worth it.

Gees, the IGN reporter is just constantly flirting with Natalie Portman through the entire interview. Here are some quotes to show what I mean, along with Natalie's answer.

IGN: How old are you?
Natalie: I'm 24.
IGN: Cool! Now, let's get to why we're here.
IGN: Has it turned you on
Natalie: Not so much
IGN: You just broke a million hearts
IGN: How do you feel
Natalie: scary
IGN: do you feel pressure
Natalie: yeah
IGN: Have you ever?
Natalie: Yeah IGN: It's about time
IGN: Do you feel like you would ever .. for a stranger
Natalie: No.
IGN: I think I'm with you on that one.

Pretty intimate conversation if you ask me!

Worst Interview Ever (2, Funny)

As a Natalie Portman fan I was extremely disappointed with that interview. It didn't seem like it delved much into the graphic novel, and Natalie wasn't asked any interesting questions. Plus, there was no picture of her on the interview page. That was a major minus.

Natalie Who? (1)

Let me share my story instead.

My name is Adam and I must say that I am the luckiest guy in the world, for I have as my girlfriend the goddess Natalie Portman, the female star of the Star Wars prequels. We started dating a few months ago and she is madly in love with me. I must say that years before we started dating I have had a major crush on Ms. Portman, and have fantasized about many romantic occasions with her, and also sexual ones where when I masturbate I would have the most intense orgasms with my thoughts on making love to her. Natalie Portman and I met at the premier of Star Wars Episode 2 in May of 2002, and I still remember the first time I saw her in person, and the sexy cloths she was wearing. She was the one who broke the ice with me for I was to dumbfound to even talk to her, like a boy in junior high with a crush on a girl. She took notice to the fact that I was a big sci-fi fan, and since she was never a fan or knows anything about sci-fi she wanted to get to know me more to see what the world was like for a die hard sci-fi fan like myself. After the premiere we went out to get a coffee and we really hit it off. Our causal relationship soon turned into a dating relationship, and within the next few months we were in a serious relationship. Our dates went from going to get coffee or McDonalds to going to fancy romantic restaurants. Because of the kind of dates we were going on I knew she was turning into my girlfriend. The physical aspects of our relationship were slow. I was anxious because if you can believe this I am still practically a virgin and quick and ready to have sex. Natalie Portman is a virgin to, only I did not know it at that time. For with me it is because I do not do so well with the ladies, and with her she is so busy with her acting career. But in spite of her being a virgin she was in no way to fast to have sex, for she pushed my advances on number of occasions. But our relationship was not static, for she did warm up to me in time. Within the first month of dating she would let me hold her hands. It was not until the second month that we kissed for the first time. By the third month we were french kissing, and by the fourth month we were making out on a regular basis. By the fifth month she was ready to have sex with me for the first time.

I remember the first I had sex with Natalie Portman. We were both dressed in semi-formal wear for a date. I had on casual pants and a dress sweater with a sports jacket, and Natalie had on a very sexy red party dress with black silk stockings and a pair of very sexy 4-inch heels. When we came home that evening we made out on the sofa as we kissed and french kissed passionately that Natalie finally made the move on me. In the midst of our make out session she grabbed my hands and put them to her breast. I felt up her breast through the fabric of her dress. Then on impulse she sat me back and then with her and unzipped my pants. I was so caught up in the moment that I felt completely mesmerized and did not resist her in the slightest. Then she reached underneath my underwear and pulled my raging hard on cock out of my pants. Then she started to stroke up and down on my shaft with her hands, and oh man did it feel great. I masturbated several times and had great orgasm, but it never felt the same way ash she was jerking me off. Well her hand job did not last long for she knelt down and put my cock in her mouth. I felt like I was in heaven, for here my favorite girl in the whole world was giving me my very first blowjob. I felt sensations like I never did before as I saw Natalie's head bop up and down on my raging hard cock, feeling the intense sucking as she strived to take the whole length of my cock down her throat. After several thrilling minutes of her giving me a blowjob and I could not take it any more and grabbed the back of her hair gently to give her a signal to let her know I was about to come. She just continued to suck hard on my cock expressing she wanted to swallow. Then I exploded into orgasm and shot what I felt like gallons of white sticky cum in her mouth and then she pulled her mouth off my cock and swallowed my love juice.

Then Natalie told me it was my turn for me to please her. She started to take off her red party dress only to reveal that that she was wearing only a black thong along with the black silk stockings and 4-inch heels. She pulled her thong down off her legs, only to reveal to me the cutest snatch I have ever seen. I have seen many pussies over the years through porn mags and videos, but I never saw one as such as sexy and cute as hers. Her pussy was very well trimmed with a very small and thin patch of peach fuzz black pubic hair down the middle of her vulva. Then grabbed me by the hand and had me kneel down beside her. Then she sat down on the couch and spread her legs wide open in front of my face, giving me complete and perfect access to her pussy. She grabbed my head and pulled my face closer to her virgin pussy. I could smell the odors of her vagina and I absolutely loved the smell for it got me hornier than ever. She then shoved my face into her pussy and I needed no other command. I first licked her labia and then I spread her labia wide open, and then I began to lick deep into her cunt. I found her cunt hole but it was still closed by her unbroken hymen, which revealed to me that she was still a virgin, her self. Then my tongue wen back up her pussy and found its way to her throbbing clit, and when I began to lick it she went crazy and made load moans. Then I began to suck her clit and bit on it softly only to cause her pleasure and not to hurt her. And boy did it cause her pleasure for she was screaming and moaning begging me not to stop. She grabbed my head and pushed it had into her pussy, as I never let up in sucking and biting on her clit. It id d not take long for her to orgasm, and when she climaxed she screamed to the top of her lings, arched her back, and then I felt her pussy spasm and she shot her girl cum into my mouth to which I gladly drank up.

She was ready after that for me to penetrate her. She had us both take the rest of our cloths off that we had not yet take off us. Then we were both completely naked as the day we were born. Natalie then grabbed my hand and led me over to the carped floor. She then lay down on her back and then she lifted her legs up into the air and then spread them out eagle wide. She wanted me to fuck her in the missionary position for the first time. I could not believe that not only was I fucking Natalie Portman, but I was also about to bust her cherry. She encourages me to kneel down, and when I did she guide me with her hands into the position I needed to be in. Then she grabbed my cock, which got really hard again, and guided to the opening of her cunt hole. I pushed my cock into her cunt hole very slowly up to the point that I was about to break her hymen. Then I stopped what I was doing so I would not hurt her, and then I looked down at her and she nodded her head in approval. She held her breath in anticipation and then I plunged my cock past her hymen and broke her cherry. At first she bled a little to which I was ready to pull out of her, but she refused and insisted that I stay in her. When her pain subsided she told me she was now all right and told me to go for it. I did not need to be asked twice, for I then began to plunge my raging hard cock in and out of her cunt hole. Her cunt hole was so tight. When I knew she was getting used to it more I went faster and faster until I felt my cock ready to explode into another orgasm. When I thought I was ready to orgasm I tried to pull out of her for fear of getting her pregnant, but she refused and said that she was on the pill and wanted for me to cum inside her. I gave in to her request and then as I continued to pump my cock in and out of her tight cunt hole, right up to her cervix, at a very fast spread. Then I explode into my second orgasm that night, and tons of white-hot sticky sperm came out of my cock and flooded her womb. Right after I came inside her she had her second orgasm that night, and her girl cum mixed with my sticky white sperm as I pulled out of her and my sperm dripped out of her cunt mixing with her juices. For the rest of the evening we lay together in the nude embracing one another as we slept through the night.

Over the next several weeks and month Natalie and I fucked like rabbits. We fucked at least once a day, as she gave me blowjobs, and I ate out her pussy. When we actually fucked one another we did it in the missionary position but also other positions as well. We tried doggie style, her on top of me, me on top of her, us lying beside one another, me on a chair with her on top, me standing up and holding her while I fuck her, and even cowboy style. Yes I fucked Natalie in every position we could think of, and we did it all the time. We did it every evening and even a lot of morning we would do quickies when we would get ready for work, as I would pull my cock out of my zipper and she would hick up her skirt or dress and we would fuck really quick before we left for work. When we left for work after we fucked it was hard separating us for our deep and passionate kisses. After several months of hot passionate sex, and even though it never got boring, we decided to try out other sexual things to spice up our love life. By do this we agreed to reveal to one another each of our secret fantasies and fetishes and fulfill them in one another. I agreed with her that after she made known a secret fantasy of hers to me and I fulfill it then I could do the same to her.

Natalie's first fantasy she revealed to me is that she can cum sometimes just by manipulating her breast. So her fetish is that she fantasizes of a person nursing on her breast and sucking milk out of her breast as she gets off on it and cums from it. So she took off her shirt and she was not wearing a bra underneath it. Her breast are small, and I know that some guys are into big breast but I am not. Natalie's breast are perfect, for they are very perky and her nipples stick right out. She then sat on the couch and I lay down next to her and put my head over her lap. She then grabbed my head and pulled it to her right breast, and I open my mouth to receive her perky nipple into my mouth. I begin to suck on her nipple as if I were a baby breast-feeding. I could tell she was getting horny and excited because her breathing got heavier and heavier and then she began to moan loader and loader. Soon I was able to extract milk from her breast and I began to drink her milk. Just then she was able to bring herself to orgasm and she came. After I finished breast-feeding from her right tit I pulled my mouth off her tit and noticed a wet spot on the crotch area of her jeans where she had cum.

Then Natalie asked me what my fantasy of mine that I wanted fulfilled by her. I held my breath with nervousness and then revealed to her my shiny patent leather mary-jane shoe fetish that I never told anyone about until her. I told her that I have a major fetish for girls shiny dress patent leather mary-jane shoes, that I must have a thing for schoolgirls and the schoolgirl look along with shiny schoolgirl shoes. There is nothing I love more than to see a girl wearing shiny dress shoes, for I think that the shininess of the leather of girls dress shoes makes me go sexually crazy. Well Natalie held her end of the bargain and the next day she went shopping. When she came home she revealed to me that she bought a schoolgirl uniform that included a white silk blouse and a plaid skirt, white nylon tights, and the best thing of all she bought the sexiest pair of shiny and glossy black patent leather mary-jane 3-inch pumps with buckle and strap. When I saw the cloths and shoes she bought I went immediate crazy with sexual lust. She wasted no time going into her room and getting dressed up in the schoolgirl uniform that she bought along with the white nylon tights and the patent leather mary-jane pumps. When she came out of her room wearing the schoolgirl uniform, along with seeing her hair made up into little girl pigtails, and seeing her shiny black shoes glisten made me get an immediate solid rock hard on. Natalie went over to the couch and sat down on it. She called me over to her, then had me kneel down to her feet. She lifted up her right foot until the shiny patent leather pump was right in front of her face. She commanded me to worship her shoe, to which I was glad to. I stuck out my tongue and began to lick all over that shiny glossy shoe, first starting from the toe, then all around the shoe, then all over the heels, and then finally I even licked over the shiny strap that held the shoe onto her foot. After I was finished with her right shoe I did the same exact thing to her left shoe. I just love the sensation of my tongue running all over that slipper slick leather, and by this time my cock was throbbing for a release, and Natalie knew it. She then reached down and unzipped my pants and then she pulled out my cock. My cock was so hard that it stuck strait up into the air. Then Natalie lifted her feet to my cock and began to rub her shiny patent leather mary-janes all over my raging hard on. She had her feet in such a way that both shoes were rubbing up against my rock hard cock at the same time. The shiny and glossiness of her patent leather mary-janes made the shoes slippery and they easily slid up and down the shaft and head of my cock. This gave my cock just as good of stimulation as it would be in Natalie's mouth or cunt hole. It took no time for me to cum, and when I exploded into orgasm it felt like a waterfall explosion and it looked to be about gallons of hot white sticky sperm ejaculated out of my cock and shooting onto her new shiny patent leather mary-janes. Soon her new glossy mary-jane pumps were completely soaked and drenched in my sticky white juices. Natalie then reached down to her feet and unbuckled her shoes, and then she took them off and pulled them up to her face so she could lick all of my white cum off of her shoes. While she was licking all my white sperm off of her shoes I quickly grabbed her feet that still had on the white nylon tights, and I pout them up to my face and began to smell her stinky feet. When she saw this she responded.

Natalie: I see that you have more than just a patent leather mary-jane shoe fetish. For you seem to be getting yourself sexually off by smelling my stinky feet.

Adam: Yes I think you are right. I not only have a fetish for girls who wear shiny patent leather mary-jane shoes, along with the schoolgirl uniform; I get obsessed with girls feet. Always wandering what they smell like.

Natalie: But doesn't the stinky smell of my feet turn you off?

Adam: It should, and on anyone else it would, but your feet could stink to high heaven and I still would be turned on. Yes the smell of your stinky feet turn me on.

Natalie: Ok then smell away and get yourself off as you please.

And that is exactly what I did, while she cleaned off the rest of my white sticky sperm off her shoes with her mouth and tongue, and swallowed it, I continued to smell her feet until the odor from her feet caused me to have another orgasm. Natalie was so shocked and amazed that not only would I love to smell her stinky feet, but that I was able to have an orgasm from it. I told her it was sort of like when I sucked her nipple and breastfed and she climaxed from that. Then she understood and let me fulfill my fetish at any time I wanted to. On a regular basis I would lick her shiny black patent leather mary-jane pumps after she wore them for the day, and then I rubbed them against my rock hard cock until I ejaculated my load onto her shoes over and over again, When she was not around I pulled those shiny mary-janes out of her closet and masturbate to them. I even smelled her stinky feet inside her shoes, which was enough to get me off and make me cum. Almost every day when she came home from work she relaxed on the couch, and figuring that her feet would be the stinkiest after a whole day of her feet were not aloud to breath from being in a pair of shoes, she would take off her shoes and let me smell her stinky feet. It got me sexually excited every time she let me do that, but sometimes I would orgasm from it and other times I would not. I guess it depends on the mood I was in and how horny I was at the time when she let me smell her feet.

You know, a karma whore like me should probably not be participating in any discussion involving Natalie Portman. At the same time, it will probably be about 5 years before I get another chance. So ere goes.

Far, far in teh future, in a petrified forest just outside the ruins of Philadelphia, stands a naked, marbelized corpse with an expression of fear and angst across it's face. Scientists of the day, doing research into the decline and fall of mankind hundreds and thousands of years earlier, use temporal analysis instruments to peer into the past and determine the what brought this poor, pathetic creature into these woods and how it came to be in such a state.

Upon a floating disk stands a large, translucent box, the outer covering of which disguises a number of gears and tubes which come to life as the scientists activate it's instruments. Within the large, green viewport, the scientists peer backwards into time, watching countless days and nights peel away like skins of an onion. As time comes back, so do glaciers of mineral deposits which once covered the entire area. For hours, the scientists stare into the viewport. 'This isn't going fast enough', mutters the chief scientist, twisting a knob to increase the rate of reversion.

Suddenly, there is a blazing flash of light, the deposits receed, and the scientists watch the last days of man with great interest. From their viewport, they stare over the city of Philadelphia and watch as the air defences fire upon opponents in the skies above. Massive sledges of steaming, boiling grits drop their payloads onto the city, and block by block the guns go silent. The scene on the horizon is choked by the sheer number of sledges, and the cackling of the sledgemasters can be heard through the audible amplification unit. The thousands of lenses of the scientists eyes focus all at once on the city limits, where fleeing citizens can be seen escaping a bubbling, oozing force as it emerges from all the buildings. Soon, the valley surrounding the city is becoming layered with grits running over from the city, and the skyline which was home to people for so many generations vanishes in a grey, chunky mess.

The scientists watch as survivors coming up the hill become trapped in the lava-like ooze and instantly burst into flames. By now, they can hear the screams of the last few runners who somehow managed to stay ahead of the grits which have filled the valley like chowder in a soup bowl. Finally, lights shine through the clouds above a massive sledge emerges from the heavens, larger than the city itself lying below. A thunderous beeping sound, like that of a thousand backloaders, begins echoing over the scene. In the viewport, the scientists watch with keen interest as 2 events take place: the last of the runners makes her way into the forest, towards higher grounds above and possibly salvation, and the bottom of the massive sledge gives way to megatons of steaming hot grits. In an instant, the runner is swept up in the massive outpouring of grits which quickly consume her. The viewport goes dark.

'Back up a few frames, I want to check something', says the lead scientist. The culinary officer complies, his cerci swinging back and forth excitedly as the group looks for clues to the identity of the runner. They stare closely into the viewport, when one of the scientists exlaims 'Stop! That badge seems to be a means of identification. T'jalfar, you know ancient human dialects, what does it say?'

T'jalfar adjusts his 4,000 lensed monacle. After a moment, he mutters, 'Port... Port... Portman! That is what it says, this one's name was Portman.'

'What does it mean?' asks one of the other scientists.

'Definitely kosher, my friends. By the name given on the badge, it is safe to say this one was definitely kosher' says T'jalfar.

An excited chatter rose amongst the crowd. The culinary officer ambled up to the marblized corpse, it's anntenae running all over to determine the best place to insert his instruments. Being the most advanced species on the planet, the cockroach scientists take great care to only seek out the finest meals and employ the most advanced technology to ensure the quality of their food.
