Thompson on Hollywood

Just as we are all trying to get used to the idea of wraith-like Natalie Portman as a pregnant soon-to-be new mom, she turns up pregnant in a movie filmed two years ago that was recently picked up by IFC, The Other Woman. Written and directed by Don Roos (The Opposite of Sex) and produced by Marc Platt (Wanted), The Other Woman stars Portman as a woman trying not to be a wicked stepmom. See the trailer below.

Taking advantage of Portman's heightened profile due to her Oscar contending role in Black Swan--in which she stars as a ballerina opposite choreographer Benjamin Millepied, the father of her unborn child--IFC will release The Other Woman on exclusive premium on demand Jan. 1 and in theaters February 4th.
