Natalie Portman to Get French Nationality

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Features

Benjamin Millepied and Natalie PortmanNatalie Portman plans to become a French citizen.

The actress is hoping to legally adopt the same nationality as her husband, choreographer Benjamin Millepied, and would even consider changing the spelling of her name to be welcomed across the Atlantic.

"I don't have the French nationality, but I would be love to get it. But I don't know if it's possible because I already have an American and an Israeli passport ... Perhaps I should add an 'h' to my name to make it sound more French [Nathalie]? My father named me after a song by Gilbert Becaud. I grew up in a very Francophile atmosphere," she said.

The couple and their two-year-old son Aleph are planning to move to Paris next year and have already begun house-hunting for the perfect pad in the French capital. "We're looking for an apartment! Benjamin and I are moving in autumn 2014 when his job at the Paris Opera Ballet starts. It's obviously a massive change to quit Los Angeles for Paris. I don't know what my life is going to be like, but I'm so excited," she confirmed.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Celebrity Babies

Natalie Portman and AlephNatalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied took their son on their honeymoon because they would have missed him too much to leave him behind.

The couple jetted out to Turks and Caicos in the West Indies at the beginning of the month for a romantic break but couldn't leave 15-month-old son Aleph behind. "This break was very precious to them, even though it was brief. It's typical of them - even their honeymoon was a whirlwind. They used the time to be together. No work, no business calls. Natalie and Ben are the hardest working people. Even before the baby came along, they were non-stop so you can imagine how exhausted they've been since Aleph was born," a source said.

The happy family blended in with other holiday makers and spent most of their time playing and relaxing on the beach. "They made silly faces to make Aleph laugh and they all looked like they couldn't have been happier. Natalie and Benjamin enjoyed a romantic moment as they headed out towards the horizon together. They just kept kissing and looked really in love," said the insider.

Black Swan Battle: Director Jumps Into the Arena

Natalie Portman -- Black Sawn

The Swangate scandal continues. Professional ballet dancer and Natalie Portman dancing double Sarah Lane is continuing to ruffle feathers with her claims that the Oscar winner barely danced in her award-winning film Black Swan, and now director Darren Aronofsky has joined the fray.

Lane has been very vocal with her claims that she did most of the dancing being featured in the film, though Portman’s husband-to-be and dance instructor Benjamin Millipied and Fox Searchlight have both gone public to say most of the moves onscreen are all Natalie. In a controversial move, videos that appeared on YouTube showing some CGI face-replacement (in which Portman’s face was laid on top of Sarah’s during dance sequences) have magically disappeared due to copyright infringement.

Natalie Portman, Black Swan

Looks like we’re going to have to settle this one on reality TV. Otherwise, this back-and-forth in the media just may never end. The debate over just how much of her own dancing Natalie Portman did in the highly-touted, Oscar-winning flick Black Swan continues, and now almost everyone has weighed in.

Fox Searchlight Films released a recent statement extolling their lead actress’s dancing virtues, saying “We were fortunate to have Sarah [Lane, professional ballet dancer] there to cover the more complicated dance sequences, and we have nothing but praise for the hard work she did. However, Natalie [Portman] herself did most of the dancing featured in the final film.”
