Exclusive: Natalie Portman Gets Goofy in Outtakes from Hesher

Spencer Susser's intense indie drama Hesher features a fair amount of extreme angst -- embodied by the charismatic Joseph Gordon-Levitt, tattooed and grimy like you've never seen him before -- but plenty of fun was had behind the scenes, if Movieline's exclusive outtake reel is any indication. After the jump, watch a sweetly dorky Natalie Portman goof of between scenes with her young co-star Devin Brochu in a special feature from the forthcoming DVD/Blu-ray release.

A is for "Awesome!" And "Aardvark!" Ah, fun with clappers.

The synopsis for SXSW entry and Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominated film:

Loud music. Pornography. Burning s*%t to the ground. These are a few of Hesher's favorite things. And they are what Hesher (Gordon-Levitt) brings into the lives of TJ (Brochu) and his father Paul (Wilson) when he takes up residence in the garage uninvited. Grief stricken by the loss of TJ's mother in a car accident, Paul can't muster the strength to evict the strange squatter and soon the long-haired, tattooed Hesher becomes a fixture in the household. Like a force of nature, Hesher's anarchy shakes the family out of their grief and helps them embrace life once more.

Hesher hits DVD and Blu-ray on September 13, featuring deleted scenes, a sketch gallery, outtakes, and more.
