Actress Natalie Portman Says Oscar Statuette is a ‘False Idol’


Forget flaunting the Oscar statuette on the mantel. Natalie Portman prefers to keep her trophy tucked away – in fact, she’s not actually sure where it is.

“I think it’s in the safe or something. I don’t know. I haven’t seen it in a while,” Portman said in the May 15 issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The actress, 33, who won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2011 for her Black Swan performance, explained why she isn’t one to worship the gold statuette or dwell on the big win.

“I was reading the story of Abraham to my child and talking about, like, not worshipping false idols,” she said. “And this is literally like gold men. This is literally worshipping gold idols – if you worship it. That’s why it’s not displayed on the wall. It’s a false idol.”
