‘He saved me again and again’

20 Nov, 2014

Portman pays tribute to the late Nichols, who directed her in The Seagull and Closer.

There’s nothing good enough I can write that would do Mike justice. He was the one who had the best words, the right hug for hard times, the funny comment to diffuse your pain. He saved me again and again. He was the best way to be a person and an artist. And the most, most fun. I send my deepest love to Diane, Jenny, Max, Daisy and their children, who filled his days with light.
