I think that last picture is Scarlett Johannson, not Natalie Portman. Can you verify?

Yes I can. HERE’S Natalie wearing the same dress.

hi, im lexie and i was just wondering if for Natalie Portman as Anne Boleyn in The Other Boleyn Girl (2008) picture you blogged, I don't remember that boy in the movie or anne wearing that dress. Would you know where in the movie this is or in deleted scene or something, ive got the movie at home so I can take a look. thank you.

Hi Lexie! You’re probably not the only one wondering about this, so I’ll publish this for everyone to see: the movie still is indeed from a deleted scene in the film. The little boy is Mary Boleyn’s son, Henry Carey (believed to be the son of King Henry VIII in the movie), but Anne is his ward and takes care of him which is a source of dispute between the Boleyn sisters.
