Jimmy Kimmel offer to Natalie Portman

  

we love Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman's pregnancy made her rethink her award season strategy.

“I feel like they're very careful with me. Everyone's like, ‘Oh, you don't have to stand up. That's OK' And I'm like, ‘I can stand up out of a chair... still!” she said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! She admitted there are perks notwithstanding. “Cutting in the bathroom line is one I'll take,” she admitted. “It's nice.”
Jimmy Kimmel's wife Molly McNearney is also pregnant. “She's eating constantly,” he told Portman and then asked her, “are you eating all the time? It's like Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on Coney Island, 100 percent of the time in our house. Are you like that as well?”
“Yeah,” Portman replied. “I feel like I get a little panicky about food availability. If I'm going somewhere, I'm like, ‘Will they have something I will want to eat at that point?‘ Before I go anywhere, I'll have a plate of pancakes or a veggie burger or whatever - just to be prepared.”
She gave the example that before the 2017 SAG Awards “I preemptively ate, so I didn't need to eat.”
“That could be a new diet plan,” Kimmel joked.
“It's the anti-diet plan,” Portman said with a laugh. “It's the opposite.”
Portman has been nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars, going up against Elle's Isabelle Huppert, Loving's Ruth Negga, La La Land's Emma Stone and Florence Foster Jenkin's Meryl Street.
The first time Portman won an Oscar she was pregnant with her son Aleph Portman-Millepied, now 5. “It's like my thing,” she joked about the timing of both of her pregnancies.
Kimmel joked: “Either you wanted to have another baby or you're very superstitious.”
“Of course, we don't want this to happen,” Kimmel continued, “but if you should go into labor during the Oscar broadcast, I want you to now that as host, I am prepared to deliver the child.”
If Kimmel delivers Portman's second child during ABC's telecast, he suggested, “You could certainly name the baby after me, or Oscar - or Oscarina? - or something like that.”
“Beautiful names,” Portman joked in turn. “All of them.”
