Saturday Night Live Recap: Natalie Portman Raps About Sex, Drugs, and Jar Jar Binks

It’s been a dozen years since Natalie Portman hosted SNL. Back in 2006, she busily fended off questions about life as Queen Amidala in the Star Wars prequels and played off of her genteel image in a savage rap about her proclivities for drugs, doing dirt, and catching the D. In the intervening years, Portman has kept things serious — playing everything from obsessive ballerina Nina in Black Swan to Jackie Onassis in Jackie — but she pops up in the occasional rom-com or TV comedy. Filming her latest movie, the adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer’s speculative fiction freakout Annihilation, surely made her ready to do something less than serious. Let’s see what she’s got up her sleeve for her return this week to Studio 8H.
