Natalie Portman feels like “a clown” in bold lipstick.
The Black Swan actress–who is pregnant with her first child–is slowly agreeing to makeup artists’ requests for her to wear a more dramatic color on her mouth, but still doesn’t feel entirely comfortable.
She said, “I feel like a clown if I put on strong lipstick, but recently I’ve experimented with reds. Makeup artists have been urging me to try stronger lips, but it still doesn’t feel like me. I’m working on it.”
The brunette beauty also relies on help doing her hair as she claims she doesn’t know how to stop it looking like a “triangle.”
She said, “When you see me, a professional has done my hair–I don’t know how to. As a family, we have very curly ‘Jewish’ hair, when it’s long, it comes out in a triangle.”
Natalie also revealed she developed an interest in perfume from her mother and believes it is important to include scent when “dressing up.”
The Oscar-winning beauty added to Britain’s InStyle magazine, “My mom taught me to spray fragrance and walk into it. She has a sensitive sense of smell, so I’ve grown up with a great awareness. A scent that sets you apart makes you feel glamorous and gives you a different way of walking into a room–it’s part of dressing up.”
