(CelebNMusic247-News) Natalie Portman Leaves the US
Natalie Portman and her husband, Benjamin Millepied, may be heading to the city that never sleeps!
Here’s the drop:
The highly sought after position was apparently a cutthroat competition. Millepied beat out current and former members of the company before landing the spot, replacing Brigitte Lefevre, the director since 1995 who will retire when the 2013-2014 season comes to a close.
“I was surprised, but I felt very quickly that the artistic dialogue between us was an exciting one,” Millepied told The Times about Stéphane Lissner, the Opera’s new artistic director come 2015.
“There was a really good chance I might get the position, which made my head spin.”
Millepied’s head also apparently spun for Portman, 31, when he met her on the set of “Black Swan” in 2009. He was the choreographer who worked closely with the starlet for her Oscar winning performance.
