An American indie rock back from Seattle were so amused by the fact that Natalie Portman got her head shaved for a prison scene in the movie V for Vendetta, they decided to name their band Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head.
NPSH claimed one of the reasons they formed the band was to get girlfriends.
The band Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head would place Natalie Portman on the guest list of all of their shows, but the actress has not yet attended any performances.
Portman was, however, aware of the band’s name and existence. Claire England’s sister, a New York City resident, met the actress once, and relayed to her the history and story of the band. Signing an autograph for them, she said in response to the story, “Oh, that’s cool”.
In June 2010, the band announced that their band name would now be Brite Futures as they have realized that Natalie Portman is not too keen of them using her name in theirs.
“Our love affair with Natalie’s name was like a summer fling that lasted… and lasted… and lasted, but now it is summer once again, and time for a change.” – Brite Futures
