Natalie Portman is set to live out your exact dreams in yet another way: According to Deadline, she’ll star in a Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic directed by Diary of a Teenage Girl’s Marielle Heller. It’s called On the Basis of Sex and will reportedly follow the future Supreme Court justice as she faces “numerous obstacles to her fight for equal rights throughout her career.” The role is expected to be a major stretch for the Harvard-educated Portman, as Ginsburg only went to Harvard Law. (She then transferred to Columbia Law to become one of the first women to be a part of not one, but two prestigious law reviews.) Not to be outdone, Sandra Day O’Connor is currently searching for Reese Witherspoon’s phone number.
