Natalie Portman & Devendra Banhart Laugh a Lot

Natalie Portman and heavily bearded musician pal Devendra Banhart spent some quality time together, laughing at a book store in SoHo, New York, City on Wednesday.

The pair was seen kissing and there is photographic evidence. Seems like this is true love!

Natalie and Devendra (both 26) were seen in each other’s arms walking through the West Village on Tuesday.

  • kay

    he’s gross. but typical. natalie’s a smart indie girl. she has to be with an ugly bearded rocker. it just makes sense right?

  • Raven

    OH! GAWWDD!!! Natalie WTF are you thinking girl?! God! This gorgeous girl must have low self esteem is all I can say. This guy looks like a Ben Laudin groupie! Icky Poo! :( BOO!

    @ Quency K,
    I cannot agree with you more!!! Hayden and Natalie need to drop the excess batsh*t baggage and f*cking get together! Hayden and Natalie would be a total power couple and adorable together. The two need to wake up!! BOO! BOO!!! :(


    THANKS JJ…:):):):):

  • kroq

    For fucks sake, get over this Hayden Christen shit! Those Star Wars movies were some of the worst films to ever be made. Good for Natalie for breaking out of that atrocious Star Wars rut.

    Maybe Natalie is happy with Devendra. Good for her. She should be with someone that makes her happy, no matter what they look like.

  • amy

    hmmm not sure what to say…

  • Nina

    Raven, what the hell is wrong with you. If she is dating a guy like him doesn’t mean she has low self esteem, it shows she’s not shallow for one thing. Who the hell are you to say she has low self esteem? You don’t know her or him, she likes him and he likes her is all that matters.

    Natalie and Hayden were an on-screen couple on a stupid film I don’t get why “they need to wake up”-don’t you get what acting is? They were ACTING. They don’t need to hook up in real life, plus he’s with Rachel Bilson.

  • Nina

    ps-how old are most of the people on this board when they write stupid comments about people’s looks and judge celebrities with there “LOL!” “OH MY GAWD!” crap, I’m guessing 13.

  • Sebastian

    maybe you don’t like Dev’s looks but he’s so cute,he’s alot into his indie-psych-folk life and music,he’s an artist.

    they made my day,nice mix.

  • jughed

    My opinion of Natalie Portman just went up, like, 37.55678%! Even though I can’t listen to Devandra Banhart’s music without laughing (he sounds like Tiny Tim playing a toy piano, IMHO), I’m sure he’s a very swell guy to spend an afternoon with.

    Kudos to Nat for making the NY paps take pictures of a cult indie crown prince.

  • Cammy

    hand him a razor and he can be a hottie…

  • jenny

    @ cammy

    couldn’t agree more with you ;)

    PS: love the fact that she’s hanging out with indie guys :D

  • jenny

    @ cammy

    i totally agree with you ;)

    PS: i love the fact that she hangs out with indie guys!!

  • Sarah

    Wow what an awesome pair!!!!! I absolutely love Devendra! amazing songwriter and singer…….I think they’re prefect for each other, but he just does alot of drugs :x but he really is a gorgeous man! and extremely nice! :) I can’t wait to see more of these two! :D

  • Anna

    they are a couple, People has a pic of them kissing from their walk the day before

  • Arab.Aquarius

    she’s awesome. glad to see her happy with someone

  • purple poo

    @ Nina,

    I totally agree with you, Raven is a superficial idiot. I think the one with a low self esteem is Raven, she is a constant critic of others to make herself feel important. Devendra must be a really nice guy and Natalie sees the beauty in his personality which would make his exterior more attractive. I’ve been with a guy that I thought was average looking but when I got to know him and realised what a beautiful personality he had all of a sudden he looked gorgeous. It’s nice to see a young actress hanging out with friends because she enjoys their company, not because it could raise her celebrity profile.

    It’s a shame to see some things never change, I thought with time Raven would go up and show some maturity..

  • Rae

    He’s hotter here than he was in the last pictures.

  • Helena

    #1, shut up! They might look perfect, but they might be perfect for each other. These two look cute together! It’s not about what YOU want.

  • Helena

    Oh and did I mention Hayden was a shítty actor?

  • jenny


    I totlly agree. They’re both so talented. They fit together perfectly.

  • p

    there is video of them kissing out there, pretty conclusive I think. Do your research

  • bam!

    I actually think he’s quite hot looking…ok I don’t like the massive beard but if he trimmed it a bit, smartened it up, or shaved it all off, he would look very hot…I think anyway… ;)

  • katien

    Their laughter seems so genuine. And in a relationship that matters most. That you can be happy in each others company. I always knew Natalie is one of the brightest starlets out there. that is why she goes for talented, bright, witty guys and not for show dogs.

  • me:-)

    So good to see her that happy.

    I’m sure she has something really beautiful in her heart that makes a bright smile on her mind and on the whole appearance.

  • SRN

    trust me, he’s hot underneath — this is the hippie-buddhist-art-school look that I recognize from college, nothing out of the the ordinary here — one day he will shave y’all will be eating your words!

  • cici

    umm WTF OMFG, im so not LMAO what is she thinking??? damn NAT what happened to your billionaire model man? Nathan was way hott!!! this guy is whack she can do way better..she needs someone as smart, talented, and driven as she is…someone better than Hayden and this no name folk-singer

  • Helena

    28# I’m really sick of people like you. I’m sure Devandra is a better man than Nathan ‘the model’ will ever be. She’s not shallow like you. GROW UP.

  • Neos

    @ Helena, everyone has their own opinions, here’s mine, I hope Natalie has this guy spayed and neutered, he’s got more hair than most dogs!

  • me:-)

    Opinions are not like tastes.
    Opinions are like views,
    tastes are like inner touches.

    The most inner is in one’s heart.
    I’m sure Natalie can feel that touch.

  • Nina

    Thanks purple poo (nice name).

    Ok if you really know Natalie Portman, and by that I mean reading reading her interviews in magazines on interviews on tv, it makes sense why she would date him. He just seems like her type, which is cool. Also he’s cute underneath the beard, just look:

    Has a little Gael Garcia Bernal (Natalie’s ex) thing going on, she has good taste in men that are unique and interesting.

  • me:-)

    I think he is cute also deeper underneath.
    A goodhearted guy.

  • remember da truth

    Nina, I totally agree. She seeks out someone who is stimulating, interesting, and makes her laugh. If you just want someone to look good, buy a cardboard cutout — which is what Hayden was during those Star Wars movies!!

  • georgette

    Nathan bogle was so much hotter than devanfra

  • remember da truth

    Georgette, a model hotter than a folk singer? Who’da thunk! DUH!!
    Who cares?

  • cookie


  • Whysteria

    He looks like a wookie!

    I’m sure he’s a nice guy.

    The days of chosing a partner is over, it was specially to the nobility to chose a prince but she has the will to chose what she wants, and nobody has to claim her if it was right or wrong. She is a smart woman when she see that he is not the only one, she would do the same things and try to another male. She is free and when I voted I sayd that it wAS non of my buissenes. I love her and I can not agree any one that me being her love but I have no posibility so the man she choses is the one. When is tiime to live him she would do it, and he is part of the number that they tray to conquer her heart. I am so sorry that I can not do that because she conquer my heart.

  • Solid

    Im sure she not choosing anybody just to fill some ordinary expectations of an average audience. She is strong enough to get and have who she really wants and deserves. I’m following her career whatever she’ll be doing, because I love her.

  • alberto fraga manhobravo

    I heard a song about love, and always I remember in the songs that I heard, I know that I am so old, but we never knows what the woman react to you, even that I am so old that my daugher is much older that her, but my heart is telling me don’t give up because hope never gets old, and my love for Nat is sincere. I haVE NOTHING TO LOOSE EXCEPT THAT I CAN NOT TAKE HER OUT OF MY MIND. I SAW MR MAGORIUM WONDER EMPORIUM AND IS MAGIC WHAT HE DOES TO ME, I HOPE THAT MY DREAms comes true and enaytime I dream about her is something incredible that so many years these dreams follow me and I hope one day she will tell me that all her boyfriend never had her heart. she is unforgettable lilke the song and where ever she goes goes my heart. I could invite her go to paradise and there she would experilence all the loves that I have for her. Sorry Nat that those havent touch you the waY THAT I FEEL, BUT WHEN EVER YOU THINK THAT YOU LOOSE SOMEBODY I WILL DE THERE FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE ALLWAYS IN MY MIND. I HAVE THE DVD OF CLOSER AND WHEN I FEEL BLUE I SEE HER IN THAT FILM THAT ALWAYS REMEMBER HER LIKE A BEAUTIFULL WOMAN. I TRY TO DO MY BEST AND EVER YOU FILL BLUE I WILL WAIT FOR YOU BECAUSE MY LOVE NEVER ENDS.

  • Solid

    I watched today Beautiful Girls. The title was translated to a “Dream Girls” in our national language. ‘Dreality’ is a more like a decent dream that is reasonable to come true, and in that way a winning strategy.

    Now Natalie’s reality seems to be that Devendra. Is that man her final choice or just a path to someone else. We’ll see. I wish you alberto are not dreaming too much, do more ‘realming’ instead. Take care. :-)

  • steve

    many of y’all are crazy! devendra banhart’s cool, talented, and mighty cute! (okay, some of the online photos don’t look that way, but check out youtube . . .)

  • alberto fraga manhobravo

    I am sorry but I waited so long that I decided to date another woman, that she is a nurse in my nursing home, in Cuba the said when the nails is hard take another nail to taking out, so I am dating these nurse and although my heart belongs to Nat she is going to take these obsesision of my mind. I email her all times and I could not sleep maybe the nurse make me sleep. All the times that I told her that I was in love with her, almost nerver she reply to my love letters, is time to get her out of my mind, she has a newboyfriend and I supose he will be glad that a person like me do the right thing. She is young like Natalie but not so famous like her, and she is near me. she knows how I look and for now she accepted me the way I am. She is black but I have no sense of discrimination and she is pretty no so beautifull like Nat but she is exopecting me to be faitfull and I always beieng faitfull when I said yes to any relation. So Nat enjoing your boyfriend because I am tired of telling you that you are always in my mind with no response. I hope that the emails that I receive in December 30 of 2006 was true or not, but she said before if I loose you she is trying to rescue me. True or not, it was a comic when I took hours to tell her how much she impacted me, now I am going to date another woman, and happy days with you and your boyfriend.
