Exciting times

Nothing is more boring for a millionaire movie star than constant prosperity for everyone. After all, what’s the point of being rich if everyone’s having a good time? There’s no-one around to rub their noses in the fact that you are very rich indeed. Bah.

So hoorah for recession! Now people are having their salaries cut, being made redundant or are finding it even more difficult to find a job than they were before. But don’t worry, says Natalie Portman, this crippling economic comedown is exciting for people, because they can get in touch with their ‘passions’.

I think it's kind of an exciting time,’ she said. ‘I mean, everyone is cutting back. It's happening in every industry - including our own.

‘All of a sudden, people are doing jobs that they hate (what do you mean, all of a sudden?) and they're not making as much money as they thought they would or they've lost their jobs entirely. I've started to see people looking more toward their own passions and what really excites them.’ Like redistributing preposterous wealth, hopefully.
