Actress Natalie Portman formed her own production company after growing tired of waiting around for movie offers to land in her mail box.
The 26-year-old actress found the process frustrating and that scripts being offered to her were inconsistent – so she decided to take her career into her own hands and form HandsomeCharlie Films.
“It is proactive. It gives you more control over creating things, as opposed to having to get hired every single time,” she says. “After you’ve worked for so long, it’s kind of annoying to have to be dependent in that way.”
Portman added: “I’ve been working 15 years and I know some years I get everything first and some years I read only uninteresting parts. I didn’t want to be at the mercy of whoever is making those decisions. Having your own company is a nice way to concentrate your ideas and make the kinds of movies you want to see.”
