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."

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

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

State Of Origin III - QLD v NSW
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 deal with a disapproving father ...

In New Film, Zach Braff Asks: How Long Can You Pursue Your Dreams?

Jul 18 2014 3:19pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

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 ad ...

Natalie Portman Visits "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon"
Gemma Arterton has complained that she gets "boring" scripts because she is a woman. The former Bond girl said that she signed up for a musical adaptation of Made In Dagenham because it offered her an unusually meaty female role.
