Raise your hand if you think this will be a gorgeous baby! Wow. Natalie Portman is expecting a baby with her fiance`, principal dancer Benjamin Millepied. Benjamin choreographed and worked with Natalie for the 10 months she trained for Black Swan. That kind of close, physical day-to-day contact can create one of two things in my opinion: 1.) A horribly volatile working atmosphere; OR 2.) An intense and heated passion. I think we know which kind of relationship these two had brewing. And good for them.
I was never a big fan of The Portman. However, unlike Paltrow, Natalie won me over in this epic film. (Paltrow will never win me over.)
Natalie is getting huge award buzz already. She's been nominated as Best Actress by the Screen Actors Guild as well as for a Golden Globe. I think Natalie is the one to beat. I'd like to see (no, I wouldn't) another actress of her caliber give the flawless kind of performance as a Prima Ballerina. Learning to fake-play the guitar or sing is one thing (coughPALTROWcough), but the graceful torture of ballet is quite another.
So, yes. Team Portman.
