Natalie Portman weighs in on social media’s impact on mainstream movies

While speaking to Vanity Fair, the No String Attached actress said, “The striking thing has been the decline of film as a primary form of entertainment.” She further added, “It feels much more niche now. If you ask someone my kids’ age about movie stars, they don’t know anyone compared to YouTube stars or whatever.” 

However, she further noted that it is not a bad thing. “There’s a liberation to it, in having your art not be a popular art,” Natalie said. “You can really explore what’s interesting to you. It becomes much more about passion than about commerce. And interesting, too, to beware of it becoming something elitist. I think all of these art forms, when they become less popularized, you have to start being like, ‘OK, who are we making this for anymore?'” she added.
