Natalie Portman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Hesher

It's a slow news day and these aren't the best photos, but Hesher is a project I'm very excited for and I'm happy to see them anyway. Just Jared has some new paparazzi shots of Natalie Portman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in character on the set of Hesher, and an indie comedy from Spencer Susser. The story centers on a loser (Gordon-Levitt) who invades the life of an awkward 13-year-old boy living with his father (played by Rainn Wilson) and grandmother. Portman will play a supermarket worker for whom the kid (I'm assuming the 13-year-old one) falls for after she saves him from a bully. See two photos from the set below.

Holy crap, Natalie is wearing an old school 80's "Ski Colorado" t-shirt?! I think I'm going to faint! I hate to be all gossipy, but I'm absolutely melting seeing her in that, I think I actually had that exact same sweatshirt when I was a kid (since I grew up in Colorado, too). I didn't even realize her character would be wearing these kind of clothes, but it looks great. Some other early photos of Natalie Portman in glasses on the Hesher set can be seen here. As I've already said, I'm incredibly excited for this film, especially because Natalie Portman is producing with Lucy Cooper. For more info on Hesher, head over to our original article.

Is it just me or does he look a bit like Heath Ledger in that pic. Maybe it's just his facial expression...hmmm.
