It must be a slow day at the Berlinale today, because the big news Yahoo has to report out of Berlin is that Natalie Portman shaved her head for V for Vendetta, and that people stared at her when she walked down the street with a bare head. I mean, yeah, okay - tonight's screening at the Berlinale is the first screening of V for Vendetta to people who aren't film critics, and Warner Bros., no doubt, are very pumped to see how real people react to the film. But is Natalie's shaved head the most important thing about the film? They couldn't have asked questions about, say, the plot of the film? Wicked special effects? Outstanding dialogue? Something, I don't know, perhaps of substance about the film itself?
Maybe someone at Yahoo has a shaved head fetish. Yeesh.
