Natalie Portman Is Bad at Sign Language

What’s some flubbed sign language when you’re one half of one of the hottest couples around? The answer is it’s no big deal.

Although the press has pointed out that Natalie Portman, along with actor Johnny Depp, made some serious blunders as they signed the lyrics in Paul McCartney’s video for his new song, “My Valentine,” the public is inclined to commend her for reaching out to the deaf community. The British Deaf Association noted that at one point Depp signed “enemy” when he meant to sign “valentine.” And both he and Portman accidentally, and somewhat embarrassingly, signed “tampon” when they meant to sign “appear.”
