Orange alert: actress spotted in Midtown Tunnel
July 06, 2005
In other news today, New York cops are busy making sure that none of those pesky Al Qaeda types sneak into the country disguised as ... Natalie Portman. Here's Portman describing her brush with law enforcement in a Newsweek interview:
You shaved your head for the film. How's that working for you?
It's totally fine. But I got pulled over at the tunnel the other night in New York. I've never had that happen to me before. It's supposedly random. They pulled me over at the Midtown Tunnel. My registration was expired because I had been out of town, and it was my first day back. I'd been in Israel and Berlin for the shooting. They wouldn't let me go in. But he said to take the bridge instead. And I didn't understand that logic. If you're a suspect, don't take the tunnel take the bridge?Think it's her shaven head? Methinks they just don't like any celebrity who uses phrases like "feminization of poverty" [see interview]. Why, it's downright un-American.
