They have only one watchword: discretion. It was on August 4, 2012 that Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied said “yes” on the Big Sur coast in California, after meeting on the set of the film Black Swan, released in 2009 and directed by Darren Aronofsky. Love at first sight in filming for the actress and the dancer, which has now lasted for many years. And to celebrate their eight years of marriage, the Oscar-winning actress has unveiled a rare shot of this memorable day.
“Always my favorite dance partner”, wrote Natalie Portman in the caption of this photo where we see her wearing a white dress and a crown of flowers on her long, loose and curly hair, dancing with Benjamin Millepied at what appears to be their wedding reception. An original shot that lifts the veil a little on the privacy of the actress, usually very discreet when it comes to her family. It must be said that it was not until last May for the actress to share for the first time a souvenir photo of her two children, Aleph, born in 2011, and Amalia, born in 2017.
Accomplices on the red carpet
Satisfied mother and adored wife, Natalie Portman has been swimming in happiness for several years. While feeling “blessed by [her] children who made [her] a mother and who make [her] laugh every day”, the 39-year-old actress relishes her career alongside her husband, who regularly accompanies on the red carpet. Accomplices at the Venice Film Festival or exchange of tender kisses during an evening filled with stars, the couple always appear glamorous and in love. And the actress also knows how to reciprocate when it comes to the career of her husband, whom she followed to Paris when in 2014 was appointed head of the Paris Opera ballet, until his resignation in 2016.
