Hearty congratulations are in order for Natalie Portman.
The Oscar winning actress married Benjamin Millepied, the choreographer she met on the set of Black Swan in 2009, on the coast of California today. With friends and family around, the couple exchanged vows in a Jewish ceremony at a private residence.
Portman and Millepied announced that they were expecting a child in December 2010 and are now the parents of a 14-month old son named Aleph.
Officially a wife, Portman may now become a French citizen like her husband. Either way, we wish the parents and newlyweds nothing but the More >
L.A. County Sherriff’s Office investigators’ decision to reopen the Natalie Wood case after three decades has raised suspicions of her husband, Robert Wagner.
The captain of the boat that Wood, a major movie star at the time, mysteriously vanished from in 1981 is now blaming veteran actor Wagner for her death.
The Tinseltown starlet died off of Santa Catalina Island in California after partying on a yacht one night with hubby Wagner and actor Christopher Walken.
At the time, police said Wood, 43, accidentally fell overboard and drowned. Now the boat’s captain, Dennis Davern, is tellingMore >
Sarah Lane is at it again.
The professional dancer, who served as a body double for Natalie Portman in Black Swan and has said she was on camera for a major of dance scenes, spoke to 20/20 last night and said producers told her to remain quiet about her role.
“They were trying to create this image, this facade, really, that Natalie had done something extraordinary. Something that is pretty much impossible… to become a professional ballerina in a year and half,” said Lane. “Even with as hard as she worked, it takes so much more.”More >
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 >
(HMG Celebrity News) – While promoting Black Swan for which she won an Oscar, Natalie Portman had talked a lot about how much prep-work she did in ballet and dance, virtually transforming her body for the role. However Natalie’s “stunt ballerina” Sarah Lane came out with an interview where she undermined Natalie, claiming people from the studio “were trying to create this facade that she had become a ballerina in a year-and-a-half. So I knew they didn’t want to publicize anything about me.” Last week Natalie Portman’s baby-daddy, on-screen dance partner and choreographer on Black Swan,More >
Yes, Mike Huckabee said he was “troubled” by Natalie Portman’s pregnancy this week.
And, yes, he accused the Oscar winner of boasting about her unmarried, expecting state; and, yes, he said the actress is setting a “distorted image” for girls across the country.
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!
“These people should read my book and they would know what I said instead of what some left-wing partisans areMore >
Perhaps this will help you choose between Bree Olson and Natalie Kenly…
On an ABC interview that will air this evening, Charlie Sheen introduces the world to the two women who he’s been labeling his “goddesses” for the past week or so: Olson (real name: Rachel Oberlin) and Kenly.
Referring to their relationship with the actor, Olson calls Kenly by the nickname given to her by Cali Chronic X Magazine and says:
“Natty and Charlie have their own special connection, I have my own connection with Charlie and then Natty and I also have our own relationship,” while Natalie adds: “It seems crazyMore >
Halle Berry and Natalie Portman belong to an exclusive club.
No, we aren’t referring to Best Actress winners, although Portman did take home that trophy at last night’s Academy Awards and Berry did the same in 2001.
But those honors are nothing compared to the inclusion of these beauties in a THG Fashion Face-Off. Below, we’ve posted photos of both Halle and Natalie on the red carpet. Whose dress do you prefer? Who pulled off her look better?
Don’t be afraid to vote, people. Berry is likely just happy we’re talking about something other than her custody battle…
(HMG Celebrity News) – In case you’re under the impression Charlie Sheen is rehabbing at home from his many addictions, sorry to say that is not likely so. After nearly partying so hard that he had to be hospitalized, Sheen never seemed to buy into the idea that he needed rehabilitation from drugs, alcohol and sexual addictions. But to save face in my opinion, the idea was hatched that doctors would come to Charlie’s house, because Charlie refused to go to a rehabilitation facility. Since then it has emerged that Sheen’s soon-to-be-ex wife Brooke Mueller who is a real piece of workMore >
Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman squared off in Black Swan. Below, we’ve pitted them against each other in a different arena: THG’s Fashion Face-Off!
Portman was among the SAG Award winners last night for her role in the acclaimed movie. Will her gorgeous dress carry her to victory here as well?
We’d have to call her the favorite. Adorably showing off her baby bump, Nat’s dress is paired with a simple clutch … and $2 million in Tiffany jewels.
After Mila unexpectedly trounced Natalie when we broke down their Golden Globe fashion two weeks ago, is Portman ready for some revenge? Vote:

[HMG Celebrity News] – The love scene between Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in the new movie, ‘Black Swan’ caused acres of judgmental press – before it was even released. But Natalie’s year-long training regime for the film could be a film of its own.
“Working five to eight hours a day for a year…it’s what real dancers live through,” she tells People. “It was an amazing experience, but definitely a difficult one.”
Then there was the diet. While filming the taut, psychological thriller it was essential that Natalie looked right for the role, so she had to really cut down on eating;
