She’s already proven herself as a versatile actress, and now Natalie Portman is producing a pilot for a new television show based in the fashion world.
“Scruples” is based on Judith Krantz’s 1978 novel, and Portman explained, “It’s about a store opening in Beverly Hills modeled after the Dior salons. Which is really fun, full circle.”
Of producing, Natalie noted, “It’s really, really interesting to get a look at the other side of the process. Scary sometimes — because you hear about how people talk about actors and about hiring directors and writers and all of that.”
And Natalie couldn’t be happier with the subject matter. “I really have so much respect for both the legacy of [Dior] and also their tradition of very quietly being extremely generous. There’s so much opportunity to do well by doing good.”
