Some roles just don't suit Natalie Portman. At the junket for the film version of his "Doubt," playwright John Patrick Shanley was asked how Amy Adams won the role of an emotionally conflicted nun. "I'm trying to think of what the etiquette is on this," Shanley chuckled, blushing a bit. Urged on by a blogger for gossipsauce.com, he continued, "Well, we asked Natalie Portman, and Natalie was very interested but kept saying she had a problem. And we finally nailed down as to what the problem was. She basically said she didn't understand celibacy."Sounds like someone's taking tarty cues from her former costar, the sexually generous Scarlett Johansson! Still, we hardly think Portman's ideals were at odds with the role — has she never heard of the "sexy nun" concept before? Nat, check in with Megan Fox next time and call John Patrick Shanley in the morning.
