She plans to portray an astronaut returning to Earth after a grueling mission in space in her upcoming movie Lucy In The Sky.
And Natalie Portman has now revealed that she refuses to play the role of mother because it's just & # 39; weird & # 39; feels like to be another child's parent in her last interview with Harper & # 39; s Bazaar UK.
The Oscar-winning actress, 38, who placed a fierce display on the front of the September issue of the fashion magazine, told the publication: & # 39; It just feels weird when I'm working and pretending to be a mother for a child that is not my child.

& # 39; So I have tried wild experiences, such as being an astronaut or pop star. & # 39;
The actress, who broke into the film industry at the age of 13, looked just as radiant as she showed a daring display of unique outfits, including a flowing gold polka dot dress.
In another moment, the star radiated strength and confidence as she lay on the floor in a bold blood-red strapless dress that pulled into her slender waist.
With her caramel locks wiped back from her face, the star completed her look with a pair of silver earrings and red nail polish.

During her interview, the actress spoke frankly about the ongoing struggle against being judged by her appearance as a woman.
She said: As a woman, you constantly fight to be appreciated only for your appearance, because it becomes a very subtle thing, to be defined by the gaze of others, the opinions of others.
& # 39; And beauty is by definition short-lived, it is something that you cannot capture in time, it is a butterfly, it lives a second. So to make a life worthwhile and to have meaning, can not rest on beauty. & # 39;
Natalie, who made her film debut in The Professional in 1994, has since played the iconic role of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in Jackie and wins an Oscar for her compelling performance in Black Swan.

In addition to settling in the Hollywood industry, Natalie discussed understanding with her anger as a woman.
She continued: & # 39; We are socialized to believe we don't feel angry – we feel sad, we feel upset.
& # 39; And when I realized that, there was a sudden change in my mind and I thought: & # 39; & # 39; O my God, all those times that I would burst into tears, I was actually angry! & # 39; & # 39; I just didn't know how to express it! & # 39;
In addition to Natalie's latest film, produced by Reese Witherspoon, it was revealed this month that the actress would return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Thor: Love And Thunder to portray a female version of the God.

The powerful role comes more than a year after the Time Up movement called for a change in the way actresses in the film industry were treated.
Speaking of movement, Natalie said: “I am so inspired by the many women I have met through Time & # 39; s Up – such as Reese Witherspoon, America Ferrera and Kerry Washington – who have such impressive creative work do, produce, act, direct and take such good care of their families.
& # 39; They are inspiring activists and also good friends. When I think I have too much to process, I see what they are doing and I know I can do more. & # 39;
The cover shoot of Natalie comes when she becomes the face of the high-quality beauty brand Miss Dior.
She continued: & # 39; It's incredible. Because Catherine Dior was someone of enormous idealism, of enormous courage, of enormous independence. It was these inner qualities that inspired Christian Dior; and that is what I strive for in my own life. & # 39;
When asked what it was like to appoint Maria Grazia Chiuri as Dior's first female artistic director, the star added: it's great to have a woman who designs for other women, someone who understands us and knows that we might have a T-shirt with a skirt and flats, or pockets in our dresses. & # 39;
& # 39; If a woman cannot breathe in her dress, what does that mean? It is the most literal symbol of oppression that you could possibly have – it is so political. & # 39;
The September issue of Harper & # 39; s Bazaar UK is available from Friday, August 2, 2019.
