'No Strings Attached' red band trailer: Now with more nudity, sex, and swearing from Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. Also, Kevin Kline.

Watching the red band trailer for the friends-with-benefits comedy No Strings Attached, you learn a few new things about the Natalie Portman-Ashton Kutcher flick: For starters, the reason his character is so upset he finally beds his best female friend is that his father (Kevin Kline) is now dating his ex-girlfriend. The F-bomb is dropped frequently in this film, as are Portman’s and Kutcher’s clothing. (He gets a butt shot. Will she? She does in Your Highness.) We’ll need to decide whether Kutcher’s character choosing to bring Portman’s a “Congrats!” balloon after their initial romp and at some point making her a “period mix” (featuring Sinatra’s “I’ve Got the World on a String”) is interesting or annoying. And, most importantly, The Office‘s Mindy Kaling will be in more than one scene. She works at the hospital with Portman in addition to being one of her roommates. Watch the trailer below.  READ FULL STORY

'The Other Woman' trailer: Watch Natalie Portman transform into the Grey Swan

Now that Natalie Portman is the equivalent of a gold-medal-winning all-around gymnast (“The Nastia Liukin of pop culture!” –Entertainment Weekly), we get to see the trailer for a movie she filmed two years ago, The Other Woman. It’ll be available On Demand on Jan. 1 and in a few theaters Feb. 4. It is not a Black Swan clone about ice skating, but it is kind of a Stepmom clone about a child-wary woman who just can’t cope. Except in The Other Woman, Lisa Kudrow plays the real mom, a baby’s death stands in for Susan Sarandon’s cancer, and Natalie Portman doesn’t have Julia Roberts’ infuriating bangs to go along with her natural waves.

Natalie Portman: Does pregnancy help her Oscar chances?

But as we all well know, winning an Oscar isn’t just about delivering a worthy performance. It’s about how a performer is perceived within the industry. So on the heels of Black Swan star Natalie Portman’s announcement that she’s expecting her first child, I was curious: How have pregnant nominees fared over the years?

Rachel Weisz was noticeably pregnant when she won her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for The Constant Gardener. Catherine Zeta-Jones was too when she won the same category for Chicago. Same with Eva Marie Saint for On the Waterfront. And Meryl Streep had the future Mamie Gummer in her belly when she won Best Actress for Sophie’s Choice, though no one knew at the time. It’s been well documented that younger women have better luck with the Academy than their more mature counterparts. Could being pregnant only help an actress’ case?

Not always. Cate Blanchett was eight months along in 2008, when she lost in both the lead and supporting categories. Marcia Gay Harden also lost while pregnant, the year she was up for Mystic River. Same with Glenn Close for Fatal Attraction. Most interestingly, The Kids Are All Right‘s Annette Bening, who is Portman’s biggest competition this year, was almost nine months pregnant when she lost the Best Actress prize 11 years ago for American Beauty. With Black Swan now past the $30 million mark at the box office, Portman certainly has the momentum right now. Bening’s fans must surely hope Portman joins the list of Oscar’s pregnant also-rans come February.
