It’s our head scratcher of the day.
Natalie Portman‘s upcoming astronaut movie, Lucy in the Sky, is loosely based on the story of Lisa Nowak – the astronaut whose boyfriend cheated on her with a younger woman. Nowak famously became obsessed with the woman and drove 950 miles cross country, wearing a diaper and a wig, to abduct her.
That fun detail, though, does not make it into the movie. Natalie is determinedly diaper-less throughout.
“That detail just didn’t fit into the story,” explains Natalie.
“[The diaper] seemed so radical to all of us listening to it, but actually it’s part of an astronaut’s life…. It seems a lot nuttier if that’s not something you do every day.”
Still, it seems like a crucial part of the story. One that will be missed.
“I guess I still have a diaper movie in my future to fulfill everyone’s expectations,” concedes Natalie.
Lucy in the Sky comes out in the U.S. on October 4th.
