Black Swan babe Natalie Portman Pregnant and Engaged


28 December 2010

The Fan Carpet are delighted to congratulate Natalie Portman on her double good news. Not only is the Black Swan beauty engaged but she is also pregnant. Natalie is known for films including Léon, the Star Wars prequel trilogy and V for Vendetta and is reportedly delighted she said "I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience."

Portman is engaged to Benjamin Millepied whom she met on the set of her new film Black Swan. The BFI favourite sees its UK release on January 21 and is the story of Nina (Portman) is a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance.

She lives with her obsessive former ballerina mother Erica (Hershey) who exerts a suffocating control over her. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side - a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
