During a Variety interview, Jane Foster’s interpreter reflected on the criticism received by the film, comparing it to some of her past projects.
“I mean, the same thing happened with Léon too. He was massacred by critics and now, despite his starring in Marvel movies and Star Wars, that’s the movie people recognize me for.“explained Natalie Portman.”That and ‘Star Wars’ are two examples of films that when they came out I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is a mess.’ And now, 20 years later, everyone loves them. ”
