Natalie Portman to get French nationality

Sep 9 2013, 11:24am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Natalie Portman plans to become a French citizen.

The actress is hoping to legally adopt the same nationality as her husband, choreographer Benjamin Millepied, and would even consider changing the spelling of her name to be welcomed across the Atlantic.

She told Madame Figaro magazine: "I don't have the French nationality, but I would be love to get it. But I don't know if it's possible because I already have an American and an Israeli passport ... Perhaps I should add an 'h' to my name to make it sound more French [Nathalie]? My father named me after a song by Gilbert Bécaud. I grew up in a very Francophile atmosphere."

The couple and their two-year-old son Aleph are planning to move to Paris next year and have already begun house-hunting for the perfect pad in the French capital.

Natalie confirmed: "We're looking for an apartment! Benjamin and I are moving in autumn 2014 when his job at the Paris Opera Ballet starts.

"It's obviously a massive change to quit Los Angeles for Paris. I don't know what my life is going to be like, but I'm so excited."

The 32-year-old brunette beauty - who met Benjamin on the set of dark ballerina drama 'Black Swan' in 2009 - is also looking forward to exploring her passion for dance thanks to her partner's prestigious new role.

Natalie said: "I knew about and liked the ballet long before the experience of 'Black Swan' - I'd even toyed with the idea of becoming a dancer, like every other little girl.

"But to be able to approach the dancers up close, to see them practice, is definitely an extraordinary experience."

Celebrities Who Are Smarter Than You Are

Jul 29 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Scandalist

View Photo Gallery —By Sarah Smith Between senseless tweets and red carpet word vomit, stupid celebrity comments always seem to make headlines. While Hollywood loves a good laugh, it’s also home to its fair hare of A-list egg heads. As if their looks and talent weren’t enough, now they have to throw in off-the-chart IQs, too?

In 'Wish I Was Here,' Well-Covered Territory And Familiar Pitfalls

Jul 18 2014 3:54pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

It seems pretty clear what Zach Braff is up to. Ten years after his breakout debut as a writer/director, Garden State, Braff has returned with Wish I Was Here, a partially Kickstarter-funded film that is neither a sequel nor a remake, but feels as much like both of those as a film with no narrative connection to Garden State possibly could. In both movies, Braff plays a struggling actor at an existential crossroads. In both movies, his mother is dead, and he must de ...

Zach Braff is currently performing on Broadway, and for a time he starred in the TV comedy Scrubs. But he's also known for directing and starring in the 2004 film Garden State, a model of 20-something angst. Braff also directs and stars in his latest film, Wish I Was Here, which he co-wrote with his older brother, Adam. The collaboration yielded a coming-of-age story of sorts. It's about a guy who hasn't quite earned the title of adult, e ...

Evan Van Reekum on Frank Turner’s angry mob…Remember when Clash asked Evan from Canadian punks Fist City to review the singles? Course you do.
