While making an appearance on Good Morning America that day, Natalie opened up about how directing a film is like being a mother to her five-year-old son Aleph.

“Well, it is actually quite a parental role being a director, because your job is to make everyone comfortable, to make sure everyone’s okay, and also get the best out of them. Like how can you encourage them and support them to get the best out of them and that is very much a parental role,” she explained.

Benjamin Millepied Steps Down from Paris Opera Ballet

Benjamin Millepied attends a press conference to announce he is stepping down as the director of dance at the Paris Opera Ballet on Thursday (February 4) in Paris, France.

“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my position as director of dance at the Paris Opera,” the 38-year-old French dancer and choreographer said in a statement. He added that his departure is because of “personal reasons.”

“My duties as director of dance today take up so much space that they have reduced that reserve for creation and artistic expression, which in my view is essential,” he added.

Benjamin rose to prominence with his work on the film Black Swan, where he met his wife Natalie Portman. The couple has a four-year-old son named Aleph.

Natalie Portman Supports Hubby Benjamin Millepied at Paris Ballet's Opening Gala!

Natalie Portman steps out with her husband, choreographer Benjamin Millepied, at the Ballet National de Paris Opening Season Gala on Thursday (September 24) at Opera Garnier in Paris, France.

“The audience still feels too elitist to me in some of these houses,” Benjamin told WWD. “People are afraid of coming to this theater. My vision essentially is to widen the audience, make ballet interesting to people that normally wouldn’t be interested in it — younger and more diverse also. Ballet should reflect our society and in order to make the audience more diverse, the company also has to be more diverse. So yes, that’s something I would love to achieve here, and globally.”

Other celebs in attendance at the gala included The Artist‘s Berenice Bejo with her partner, director Michel Hazanavicius.

FYI: Natalie is wearing a Dior Haute Couture dress, Charlotte Olympia shoes, and De Grisogono jewelry.
