2013 has just started but Natalie Portman is already making plans for 2014. The Oscar winning Israelite is moving to Paris next year.
These seems a bit odd since her and husband Benjamin Millepied just moved to Los Angeles last year so Ben (can I call him Ben?) could run his own dance company; L.A Dance Project.
So why the move? Did the company go under? I’m not sure about the company but the move to Paris is due to Ben’s offer of Artistic Director for the Paris Opera Ballet.
Now I don’t know much about ballet beyond Center Stage but sounds legit to me.
Ben grew up in France and although he did not study or dance there, he believes he can teach the dancers something new. Before appearing in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, Ben was best known for his nine seasons with the New York City Ballet. He wants to bring the traditions he learned there to the company in Paris. At the same time Ben remains humble, saying he still has a lot to learn about the company.
Portman and Millepied met on the set of Black Swan, which Portman won an Oscar for. Here’s something to chew on though. Their relationship caused a little bit of a mess because Millepied was still with his girlfriend, whom he lived with!
I could not believe that Portman was the “other woman.” That’s a role I never thought she’d play.
Any ways, the make the move in October and Portman has two projects she’s working on for 2013 Knight of Cups with Christian Bale and the sequel to Thor.
So what do you think about the move and Portman’s jezebel ways? Let us know in the comments below.
