In case you haven't noticed, Natalie Portman is a bit of a Francophile. The Israeli-American actress may have tackled her most demanding roles — such as her Oscar-winning turn in Black Swan — in English, but she is after all married to French ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, lives in Paris and as a Dior spokesmodel, is the face of a quintessentially French brand.
Portman is also fluent in French as you'll discover in this behind-the-scenes interview with the brand's perfumer-creator François Demachy. Giggle along with her as Portman denies knowing the what marijuana smells like — it's apparently very similar to the perfumery ingredient patchouli, the secret weapon in Miss Dior. And catch a glimpse of the complex and painstaking process that goes behind the creation of a gorgeous scent.
