Natalie Portman News
- Natalie Portman is pregnant and engaged
Any news about Natalie Portman comes as a surprise, because she is so protective about her personal life. Rarely would anyone hear her make any comments about her personal life. But she broke her own rules this time by announcing to the world about her engagement and pregnancy. Natalie Portman got engaged to ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied. The two met on the sets of Black Swan, where Benjamin was a choreographer for the film. No date has been set for the wedding, but the baby is expected to have a birthday in spring.
Natalie has always lived her life on her own terms. Outspoken and honest, Natalie has stood up for what she believes in. How else would one explain her decision to leave her film career to pursue a college degree? She left her career at its peak to study at Harvard. She said that she would rather be smart than famous. During her time in college, she filmed for the Star Wars series as she had already committed herself to doing that.
Natalie is also known to come to the aid of junior artist on set whenever they are being yelled at by the directors. But she has been like this from a young age. She declined a modeling offer from Revlon at the age of ten, and chose instead to concentrate more on dancing and acting.
Born in Jerusalem, Natalie moved with her family to America at the age of three. She studied dance and acting and did a lot drama theatre. She made her film debut in The Professional (1994). Her most famous work is the three Star Wars films, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999), Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002), Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005). Her last film, Black Swan (2010) was also a hit, and is regarded as her best performance.
