To arrive at these rankings, Forbes analyzed numbers from theMore >

Natalie Portman has ditched the glam factor for her wedding and opted for a very simple wedding gown which was neither elegant nor understated.
Often a stunner during red carpet events, Natalie Portman’s wedding look however was a huge letdown. Quite frankly, the wedding dress with the long sheer sleeves and the frumpy silhouette was just unflattering, it simply did not suit this lovely bride.
Luckily, Natalie has such a beautiful face that she looks good in absolutely anything she wears. But really, it was her wedding, she could have looked much better, maybe in something moreMore >

It was under wraps since she gave birth to her new baby boy, but a Israeli television show found out and reportedly revealed the name to be Alef Portman-Millepied — taking both her maiden and her fiancé Benjamin Millepied’s last name.

With all the drama, scandal and legal skirmishes surrounding Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, it’s easy to forget that the two have a beautiful daughter.
Hopefully, the feuding couple’s icy relationship will continue to thaw in the coming months and years for the sake of Lucia, an adorable 18-month-old.
Here’s Mel and his youngest child (he has six sons and one daughter with his wife, Robyn, from whom he is separated) at a Malibu recreational center:

Mila Kunis has joined Darren Aronofsky in the corner of Natalie Portman.
In response to accusations that the Oscar winner scarcely took part in any of the choreography depicted in the movie, Kunis tells Entertainment Weekly: “Natalie danced her ass off. I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from [the praise] Natalie deserved and got.”
It’s also coming out the week Black Swan comes to DVD, which, ironically, will likely drive interest in the film.
Kunis adds that she and Portman have been open about the help they received from experienced dancers suchMore >
Natalie Portman has been accused of contributing to a cover-up involving her participating in Black Swan.
Sarah Lane, the classically-trained dancer who served as Portman’s double in this Oscar-winning film, says she appeared in 95 percent of the full body shots throughout the movie, creating an uproar that director Darren Aronofsky is out to quell.
In a statement he released to Fox Searchlight, Aronofsky comes to his star’s specific defense, writing:
“Here is the reality. I had my editor count shots. There are 139 dance shots in the film. 111 are Natalie Portman untouched. 28 are herMore >
Natalie Portman won an Oscar for role in Black Swan, but now the star’s body double is claiming the actress was featured in the film far less than has been advertised.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Lane -

But the likely 2012 Presidential nominee has an explanation for these seemingly random, misguided allegations: it’s the fault of the damn mainstream media!
How dare Natalie Portman glamorize pregnancy by… being pregnant!
