Natalie Portman 'Black Swan' Premiere at Venice Film Festival!

Natalie Portman 'Black Swan' Premiere at Venice Film Festival!

Natalie Portman is red hot in Rodarte at the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 Venice Film Festival at the Sala Grande Palazzo Del Cinema on Wednesday (September 1) in Venice, Italy.

The event, which was also attended by her boyfriend Benjamin Millepied, was also the premiere of her new movie, Black Swan.

Director Darren Aronofsky recently shared, “One of the best things about the film is the casting of Natalie. She took the part and ran with it. I don’t know if when I was working with the writers we were consciously channeling Natalie or Natalie somehow transformed herself to the part, but they grew together. I first talked with Natalie about this project at least 10 years ago. We were in Times Square and had a coffee at the old Howard Johnson. I had this idea of setting something in the ballet world. It was very loose. I didn’t have a script. And then I found out she was fascinated by ballet and wanted to play a dancer.”

FYI: Natalie wore Charles David shoes and a Dior bag.

    Aronofsky’s films are really trippy, but this just sounds ridiculous…I don’t know how the horror thing is going to mix in with the world of ballet…I’d probably rent it on DVD though

  • Gui

    Absolutely gorgeous!

  • justin

    I like her because she’s not attention seeker compare to other actress of her age

  • tal

    stunninggggg

  • purple poet

    She’s so classy and pretty. She can really wear colors. I’ve seen her wear bright blue, purple, fuschia and now red and they are always lovely on here.

  • JM

    Stunning!

  • Vanessa Moreland

    Its so unfair how prettty she is. Gorgeous!

  • stuart

    Breathtakingly beautiful and so talented.

  • DISGUSTING!!!!

    POLANSKI SUPPORTER!

  • Alaia

    She looks amazing. What a way to start September, which is a hectic month for film festivals! I also love how she tries different colours. Always so vibrant and elegant.

  • Leni

    @Vanessa Moreland: I agree, it really is unfair. She is flawless in every sense of the word, a true beauty

  • stacy

    No pun intended, but she looks kind of Star-Warsy in this getup. Great color though, and great face.

  • the truth

    Congrats on her new movie.Why include him in this. If he wouldn’t taught her to dance he wouldn’t be with her here. He’s the one who seeking somehing from her anyway.No one mention him at all!As soon as this is done it over.Why don’t people mention that he’s her boyfriend anyway. Natalie is still lovely but hayden look better with her still. This loser just going on for the ride are natalie success .Cause he don’t have nothing but being a ballet teacher.And natalie don’t mention him as her boyfriend cause he’s a nobody. But she still is lovely and talented JJ you can’t make them be together in these picures its not working. He just came alone cause he taught her how to dance and for attention for hisself.

  • megan

    absolutely gorgeous!!! she is a representation of what actresses should be these days. she is so classy and elegant.

  • Shanda

    @stacy: Agree with you there. Don’t think she feel right for being her boyfriend with her there. Her and hayden look better with each other at the event than with Ben.She seem less interested being Ben with her.But still have beauty and grace where ever she goes.Always have grace its never change her at all. Love her

    she is so pretty. and she doesn’t even have a jewish nose lol. lucky in the gene pool with both looks and talent. love her.

  • Viper

    Elegant and breath taking the dress is far from cheap looking really I don’t think many could afford that dress even on a clearance rack.

    I’m going to the opening when it comes out on December 1st can’t wait to see it. Loved The Wrestler very sure this will not disappoint.

  • padme

    Natalie looks like a queen….very regal, classy, and absolutely beautiful as always. Also think that she looks a lot better with Hayden than wimpy Ben. :D

  • Wow

    She looks breath taking ….soo elegant………the movie looks and sounds interesting I will probably go see it….but she is just gorgeous and that dress also…she is soo not your typical famewho*e actress…she lets her work speak for itself…

  • Sleepy Hollow

    Wow, that dress is absolutely gorgeous…fits her perfectly …her whole look is impeccable…….

  • cheap looking

    wow she must have been in makeup and hair for 6 hours with her ppl and the dress is gross a red blood color not good fo her paleness and the cut outs cheap looking as usual didnt expect anything different from her and her face looks older then what she is but i will see the movie only because its aronofsky and MILA KUNIS is in it a real natural beauty she couls come with no makeup and a sheet wrapped around her and look gorgeous.

    Natalie and Brad Pitt will make a perfect couple in their up coming movie project, hopefully after for real life, now thats a beautiful girl, younger and much more beautiful than the old anorexic jolie.

  • NP fan

    @ DISGUSTING!!!! yeah she’s a jew just like polanski i bet 100% if a palestinian director do the same she won’t support him

    But i’m her fan still recognize her talent no matter what…

    Her beauty? nah i bet there’s many who could surpass her beauty but they r not famous like her ^^

  • luci

    another one who shines on the red carpet but looks dreadful in everyday get up as witnessed the other day. she is just just like Drew Barrymore only looks good when scrubbed up to the max.

  • Bridie

    Just gorgeous – love her dress, the hairdo and her make-up! Also looks good with Vincent Cassle by her side – great team. I’m not a great fan of Ben either but that’s private and up to her.

  • Shell

    I would do terrible things to her….she’s insanely beautiful.

  • Kiki

    Amazing!! I love everything about this woman, her beauty, her attitude and her acting. Natalie is pretty much perfect.

  • same person posting every seco

    seems like the obsessed NP fan is at it again posting every few seconds and minutes with different names guys we know who this is ‘BRIGHTSIDE’

  • looks old

    sorry i like NP but she does look like shes aged alot and her face looks different maybe cause shes so sad looking all the time

  • me
  • Canuck

    @Shanda:
    Oh god please stop with the her and Hayden C. stuff they never dated. He said they didnt and she said they didnt and they never will. Let it be.
    As far as her looking “older” well she is 29 now not 18. We all age and change with time. To me though she doesn’t look “old” just older in years than she was at lets say 18 or 19.

  • @$^ KNOWN AS BIGHTSIDE

    this is perfection gag gag gag with 2 moles on her face shes got greasy shiny skin her foerhead is broken out but they tried to cover it pointy ears like a devil which she and her teeth need a good whitening job especially her eye teeth they are yellow thin lips and her hair is a mousy color and that dress is trashy looking like her give me MILA KUNIS a natural beauty

  • twinkie

    Natalie Portman is the most beautiful woman in Hollywood.

  • HK

    What a classic, highly intelligent beautiful and talented woman. I am not a fan, I know almost nothing about her but I do respect her! :)
