Natalie Portman: I should wear more make-up

Natalie Portman's grandmother would like her to wear more make-up.

The actress aspires to be like her idol Sophie Coppola, who she thinks always looks perfectly presented. Natalie feels as if she never quite succeeds in putting on a perfect public appearance, something her elderly relative often points out.

"I love Sofia Coppola's whole aesthetic. She presents herself in a ladylike fashion and has so much personality," Natalie revealed to InStyle magazine. "My grandmother believes you don't leave the house unless you have perfect hair and make-up, so she is always at me for not brushing my hair or not putting on enough make-up."

Despite her claims that she does not live up to her feminine ideal, Natalie does have some girly tendencies. The Black Swan actress never goes anywhere without some lipstick.

"I keep three lipsticks with me, always," Natalie continued. "One nude, everyday colour, plus a red and a plum for dressing up."
