Portman, Spielberg cancel Paris appearances

Actor Natalie Portman and filmmaker Steven Spielberg have joined the growing list of entertainers canceling engagements in Paris.

Within hours of the terror attacks, U2 canceled Saturday’s live HBO special. On Saturday morning, the Foo Fighters canceled the rest of their European tour, which was scheduled to come to Paris today.

Later last week, the distributor of Portman’s new film Jane Got a Gun announced it was canceling today’s French premiere and press junket.

“Because of the events (Friday) night, we are canceling TV appearances, junket and preview appearances with Natalie Portman Nov 15-16,” the film distributor said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Twentieth Century Fox also scrubbed planned photo op with Spielberg and the cast of the Cold War drama Bridge of Spies.
