    You are more or less the same TROLL possing in on NP board spewing hate it must be so nice to just live to hate on celebrities like you do. If you don’t like Ben that’s fine if you don’t like Natalie I’m sure she could care less. She is busy planning a wedding and looking forward to her new baby. I’m sure you can name many male celebrities you think are hot but to others might be a dork. If you look around most ppl are pregnant with kids seems to be the way of the world now before marriage most don’t even marry. Natalie is a private overly private person you don’t see her slamming the JJ or any tabloid repeatedly like many that are on here trying to score on press attention. The baby will be born to married parents so really what is the major deal anymore. I’m sure if you will find idols have dirty little secrets in the closet hey don’t want you to know about. At least Natalie has been honest for the most part she just doesn’t reveal her personal life Big F’n deal grow up please b/c hating on her won’t change the fact she is a far better actress then many her age.

  • Beta

    SHOOT ME!!! I want her to be happy though
    but the dude just EEEERRRR

  • Dee

    Yeah, she should have did it the classy way Date, Marriage, and then Baby…….like Britney Spears!!! lol

    You sanctimonious shrews need to get a life!

  • Fandango


    That is very hypocritical considering the culture we live in so according to you unless you do this thing the classy way your a Brittney Spears want to be. Pleassseee!!! so it’s your option that has to matter the most. Because I can list a ton of ppl who are very classy, but have kids some do not want to get married, some have been married and don’t want to do it again, much rather live with the person, have kids then marry them. It’s unfortunate but many ppl are gun shy on marriage the commitment idea does scare some. You might not find too many that will do thing the “Classy way” Some it take a few kids before they walk down the isle. So please come into the modern age and not live in the middle ages anymore.

    Why do all these celebrities think having a kid before marriage is okay? You know what’s going to happen. They will get married and divorced within a year or two, perhaps 6 or 10 years if they are lucky. It’s so stupid.

    p.s.- she’s not the greatest actress either. There are better actresses than Natalie.

    @irene olson:


    But oh don’t say that to people on here defending Natalie. As if they knew her personally.

    If it isn’t such a bad thing to have a kid out of wedlock then how come all these people get divorced 2-3 years later?

  • sarah

    Mazal Tov!!! Congrats!!! I love her! she’s amazing & beautiful & a great actress.

  • JC

    That sucks, I’ve had a crush on her forever. Why’s she marrying that dork?

  • Dee

    I’m not sure, but maybe english isn’t your first language, your comprehension skills aren’t developed, or you just don’t understand sarcasm. IDK, maybe all 3. Read my post again, look up some words in Webster if you have to.

  • Jokergurl

    Wow, that’s a shocker, but congratulations anyway, Natalie’s a great actress.

  • isHotr

    Wow wee wow wow!

    Natalie portman and her choreographer. That is so fantastic. They’re going to have such a beautiful baby together and incredibly talented too! She is one of the most beautiful girls in Hollywood. I loooove her.

    And her new fiance is super hot too. Gosh did you see the promo pictures of him doing ballet. He’s sexy. The isHotr opinion is that they’re just right for each other. But what about you? Http://

  • postwatcher

    Well she is 29 years old. Good age to have a baby.

  • Marieme

    My Gawd this man is sexy hot.

    It is very cheerful news!

  • Mirian


  • hmmm

    His first public date with Natalie was on New Year’s eve 2009. He was still living with his then girl friend. The girlfriend moved out of their apartment shortly after new year’s. They have been together less than one year and she is already pregnant. Now they are getting a shotgun wedding. I just don’t see this lasting long but I wish them the best.

  • Alex



    Totally unexpected that she could be expecting even though on her latest red carpet pics, her figure was fuller and she looked a bit bloated.
    As an only child who started acting when she was only 12, Natalie was struggling with becoming and being considered as an adult.
    I’m sure her 20s were a very difficult period and that she dreaded turning 30. This pregnancy is for her the ultimate way to leave her childlike image and become a woman. If not necessarily planned, it was certainly unconsciously something she needed to happen.

  • tooty fruity

    This won’t last….shorter than Scarlett Johannsen’s fake marriage. Dorky narcissist Natalie got pregnant because she wanted to snag this guy, but he isn’t that IN LOVE like she is.

  • Emily

    She kissed a lot of ” toads” to get to this point. He is attractive. Obviously they see something in each other, so congrats to both of them.

  • dawn

    Shotgun wedding time!

  • B

    This is… unexpected and confusing. Natalie has explicitly stated several times that she does not believe in marriage. Here is an exact quote: “I’m into monogamy. But I’m not really into marriage. I sort of hate the legal aspect of it. What does the state have to do with it? Why are they making rules that say my lover can stay in the United States if they’re foreign or share my health care benefits because I’m straight – but if you’re gay, you can’t have that?” If she really believes in the cause she should just give birth without the ‘piece of paper’ that she doesn’t believe in, a ‘la Brad and Angelina

  • once a cheater…

    Trapping him with a baby won’t work Natalie!

  • wave

    erm, isn’t this a BIT too random?

  • hayden

    dammit…that should have been me!!!!

  • A.J.

    I give it a year and a half.

  • British Latin American

    Natalie always dated the hottest, most interesting guys who were also outside of the hollyweird mainstream, an unbeatable combination. Now she is going to marry one of them! Good, but I wish it had been Devendra or Nate.

  • British Latin American

    @Letisha: So Natalie should onl date the Hollywood mainstream men, then? What is wrong with men who are talented and successful in their own professions, as well as gorgeous, even if they are not known in Hollywood?

  • Annie

    For some odd reason this makes me feel more respect for Natalie. Congrats! Btw, Millepied has got to be a stage name, right? I mean he’s a dancer and his name just happens to mean ‘a million feet’?…right.

  • dobermann

    I wonder how his boyfriend feels about this?

  • Maria

    @@31: i’ve met her and she’s no taller than 5’1″ at most. she’s petite and slim which gives her the illusion of being taller.

  • ahahah

  • boston61

  • nasty

    @Vanessa Fan: He’s not Jewish because she got knocked up and decided “Hey, we need to get married now”. Most movies don’t take that long to make so the fact that she’s already pregnant and engaged speaks volumes about her character. Poor girl.
