Natalie Portman recently received her third Oscar nomination for her leading role in “Jackie,” which is why she was recently photographed for Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue. Her photo has garnered a lot of attention, as she poses with her bare baby belly and only a sheet.
The 35-year-old pays homage to Demi Moore‘s iconic August 1991 cover of the magazine (who was also pregnant at the time). Both photos were taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

“It was about capturing Natalie at her most radiant.”
