What does Natalie Portman really like?

Jake Gyllenhaal, her co-star in this winter’s “Brothers,” got to ask the actress some burning questions about her favorite things in the cover story of the September issue of Interview magazine.

“What’s your favorite food?” Jake asked.

“I don’t think you can really improve upon Carvel ice cream cake. I am so Carvel,” she answered.

And while she’s famous for introducing the world to indie-pop band the Shins in “Garden State,” the star said she’s been listening to a different musical style lately.

“I’ve mostly been listening to dirty rap lately. Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much,” Natalie said. “It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things.”

But there was one question that Natalie couldn’t answer – what she’d be doing if she wasn’t acting.

“I don’t have that many skills,” she said. “I’d basically have trouble with any job that doesn’t require me to wear silly clothes and talk in funny voices.”
