Natalie Portman, co-owner of Angel City FC is negotiating a match between the Los Angeles-based football club and Ryan Reynolds’ Wrexham AFC Women.
The duo is planning a friendly between the two women’s sides.
Portman co-owns Angel City FC with Hollywood star Eva Longoria, WTA champion Serena Williams, and former US international superstar Mia Hamm.
The team hopes to follow the path adopted by Wrexham FC, as it prepares to air new docuseries ‘Angel City’.
Speaking at the premiere of the series in LA, Natalie Portman told ET: “I’ve been lucky enough to talk to him(Ryan Reynolds) about his journey, and he’s so inspirational for what he’s done with Wrexham, and they have a women’s team also.”
“So, we have talked about kind of having some friendly matches at some point.”
‘Angel City’ is scheduled to air on HBO on May 16.
While the wheels are in motion currently, Portman admits it was initially difficult to get people to commit to the project.
“It was incredible to get the support from all of those friends and it was, it was really moving when people came on board, because it wasn’t obvious, and we got a lot of no’s before we got yes’. And I feel like I didn’t realize what a big lift it was, and that might have stopped me from doing it if I understood how hard it was going to be.”
