Damn, that girl can keep a secret: Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are married, the couple’s jeweler has confirmed to Us Weekly. The pair had tongues wagging at the Ocars on Sunday night when they were both spotted wearing rings. Now jeweler Jaime Wolf has confirmed the happy couple was wearing wedding bands made of recycled platinum and conflict-free diamonds. That’s very Natalie, isn’t it? (Her engagement ring was vegan, too!) Unfortunately, there’s no other deets on where, when or what she wore, because Nat’s rep and manager have declined to comment. We’re bummed to be kept in the dark, but impressed they were able to marry without anyone knowing! [Us Weekly]
Natalie Portman isn’t the only celeb who’s gotten hitched in secret. We’ve rounded up a slew of other hush-hush celebrity marriages to which we also weren’t invited.
Sporting a blue suit and three day scruff, ballet dancer and Natalie Portman‘s baby daddy, Benjamin Millepied, launched his modeling career, posing for Yves Saint Laurent. He’s shilling L’Homme Libre (or Free Man) cologne, while Natalie is the face of Miss Cherie Dior perfume. What do you think? Is he selling it? [ONTD] Keep reading »

“Natalie is someone I’ve just admired ever since I saw ‘The Professional.’ She’s such a great actor, and yeah, she produced ‘Hesher.’ It’s the first movie her production company has produced, and what a cool thing to do that with. If you’re Natalie Portman, you can produce some huge Hollywood money maker, but she chose to do this little movie because she believed in the story and she believed in the filmmaker. It’s the kind of movie that wouldn’t necessarily get made without a little help from someone like her.”
—Joseph Gordon-Levitt talks about his new movie, “Hesher,” in which he plays an anarchist convenience store clerk who befriends a teenage boy who is mourning the loss of his mother. Natalie Portman also co-stars in the flick, and Joseph can’t say enough good things about her. In fact, he says the movie probably wouldn’t exist if she hadn’t signed on.

No, this is not how professional dancer Benjamin Millepied, aka Natalie Portman‘s fiance and baby daddy, walks down the street every day. Just once in a while. Like last Friday, when he was photographed in New York, shooting an ad for Yves Saint Laurent newest men’s fragrance. Which makes sense, since his lady is the face of Dior’s Miss Dior Cherie. They must be the best smelling couple on the planet. [People] Keep reading »
Natalie Portman‘s dad has babies on the brain, and not just because his daughter is in the final trimester of her pregnancy. Dr. Avner Hershlag (Portman is Natalie’s stage name, FYI) just happens to be a big whig at the Center for Human Reproduction in Long Island and one of the nation’s leading reproductive specialists. But he also has a creative side, too. In fact, Avner is currently shopping his first novel to publishers. It’s called Misconception, and he has dubbed it a “fertility thriller.”
So what does that mean? Keep reading »
Natalie Portman drew raves for dancing like a professional ballerina in “Black Swan.” If it looked impossible, that’s because it was, according to what Sarah Lane, Portman’s dance double, said on ‘Good Morning America’ (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Lane expanded on her previous statements that she actually performed the more difficult shots in the film, which were credited to Portman.
Although Lane made clear she was never told she would get credit for specific scenes, she accused director Darren Aronofsky of trying to create an exaggerated image of Portman’s dancing work. “They were trying to create this, you know, image, you know, this façade, really, that Natalie had done something extraordinary,” she said. “Something that is pretty much impossible.” Read more… Keep reading »
“I actually went back to being vegetarian when I became pregnant, just because I felt like I wanted that stuff. I was listening to my body to have eggs and dairy. If you’re not eating eggs, then you can’t have cookies or cake from regular bakeries, which can become a problem when that’s all you want to eat. I actually wanted eggs at the beginning and then they grossed me out after awhile … I know there are people who do stay vegan, but I think you have to just be careful.”
—Natalie Portman explains why she’s decided to take a vacation from veganism and give dairy products a try during her pregnancy. As a reformed vegan myself, I am in favor of this because, well, cheese is awesome. [PopEater] Keep reading »
