The Sublime Natalie Portman Divorces

Natalie Portman on a white background

The divorce of Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied, after eleven years of marriage, was finalized on March 8, International Women’s Day. The couple, who we admired on red carpets around the world, ends their discreet union. They remain the parents of Aleph and Amalia, for whom they have always wished the best despite their demanding careers.

They met on the set of the film Black Swan in 2010, their relationship quickly evolved, leading to a marriage in 2012 and the birth of their two children. Their move to France in 2014, and then back to Los Angeles allowed Natalie to more easily continue her Hollywood career, however, it distanced Benjamin from his native country.

The separation, although surprising, was done with mutual respect, with a particular emphasis on the well-being of their children. The couple has chosen to continue living in Paris, demonstrating their attachment to France and its way of life.

This divorce, finalized after a procedure initiated in July 2023, marks the end of an era for the couple. Despite the end of their marriage, Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied remain united in their role as parents, seeking to maintain normalcy for Aleph and Amalia. Their story, which began like a Hollywood fairy tale, however, concludes on an amicable note.
