Natalie Portman loses it over 'Kim Kardashian eating bananas' on Jimmy Fallon's Mad Lib Theater
Lucy in the Sky (2019 Movie)
Natalie Portman is one of the greatest dramatic actors of her generation — but a new Tonight Show skit with Jimmy Fallon proves her mighty comedic chops as well.
The 38-year-old Oscar winner stopped by the talk show Wednesday night to promote her new sci-fi drama Lucy in the Sky, and Fallon put her improvisational skills to the test during a hilarious Mad Lib Theater sketch in which the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder lead plays a frustrated woman breaking up with her boyfriend at an apple orchard.
Prior to their performance, Fallon asked Portman for phrases, adjectives, and verbs to fill in the narrative’s blanks; Thus, the couple’s romantic breakdown included references to “Kim Kardashian eating bananas” and long-gestating feelings of dissatisfaction simmering since the Revolutionary War.
“I’m sorry things didn’t work out,” Fallon tells Portman after they break up. “I am, too,” she responds. “I’ll always have a special place for you… in my butt.”
Lucy in the Sky is in theaters Friday. Watch Portman’s Mad Lib Theater sketch above.
