Natalie & Reese

Are they talking about babies? I bet you they’re talking about babies.
We don’t see a lot of Natalie Portman. She doesn’t show up at the opening of everything. She’s not Jessica Alba. And even though she’s been living in LA for a while now, she is not often papped. Maybe once a month, if that? It’s not like Natalie Portman isn’t famous either. It’s not like they can’t sell her pictures. So you see, again, when you want to avoid it, you can avoid it.
Portman went out last night to support her husband Benjamin Millepied at his LA Dance Project Inaugural Benefit Gala. She wore red Dior. She looks like a teenager. I love that she still looks like a teenager -- a teenager in bad white/pale lilac satin shoes, good GOD.
Anyway, it’s been a long time since Natalie Portman was at the movies. Was it Thor? I think it was Thor. Fittingly, I guess, Thor is the next time she’ll be at the movies, when Thor: The Dark World opens in November. It still surprises me that she’s a Marvel person.
While Natalie is seldom papped with her kid, Reese Witherspoon... well...here’s Reese with son Tennessee yesterday before attending the party. Reese won her Oscar 5 years before Natalie. You know how they always talk about that Best Actress Oscar curse? In the last 13 years, from 2000, when Julia Roberts was named Best Actress, 6 of those women went on to end their relationships after their wins: Julia, Halle Berry, Hilary Swank, Reese, Kate Winslet, Sandra Bullock, who’s been the last since 2009, the largest gap in the new millennium. That’s a good sign, right?
