Natalie Portman wants all your Oscars. Only days after it was announced that Portman would play Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she landed a starring role as another political icon: According to Variety, Portman will follow in the illustrious footsteps of Katie Holmes and Minka Kelly to play Jackie Kennedy in Pablo Lorrain’s Jackie. The film follows the former first lady in the four days following John F. Kennedy’s assassination, a time period in which she “lost the love of her life but won the love of a nation.” Better start practicing your “Did they just say my name?” face now, Natalie.
