Natalie Portman weds Benjamin Millepied in Jewish ceremony



Get your lowdown on what's going on in the world of Hollywod right here!

Natalie Portman
married her fiance of two years choreographer Benjamin Millepied, on the scenic central California coast of Big Sur, on Saturday.

The couple was surrounded by family and friends, including Ivanka Trump, when they exchanged vows after dark in a Jewish ceremony at a private home, People magazine reported.

The 31-year-old Oscar winner first met French dancer Millepied, 35, on the set of Black Swan in the fall of 2009.

He worked as a choreographer on the film and the two started to date during the shoot. By December 2010, the couple announced they were engaged and expecting their first child. Their son Aleph is 14-months old.

"Nothing is more important than my personal life," Portman recently told France's Madame Figaro magazine.

"It's something which comes first, always makes sense, and compared to the happiness of a successful family life, everything else is practically superficial," she said.

Now the newlywed may consider becoming a French citizen like her husband.

"I now have the possibility of taking on French nationality. It would accomplish the Francophile dreams of my father and myself," she told the publication.

"I lived in Paris when I was 12 and my father gave me the name Natalie as an homage to Gilbert Becaud's song. Everything in my life has drawn me towards a French family," she added.

Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle is reportedly dating Sin City actress Rosario Dawson.

The Slumdog Millionaire filmmaker, who served as creative director of the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony, was photograph walking hand in hand with Dawson and kissing her on the lips in the seaside town of Brighton, England, on Friday.

The pictures were revealed by Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, Contactmusic reported.

Boyle met Dawson, who is 22 years his junior, when he cast her in his latest film Trance.

The actress, who previously dated Sex and the City hunk Jason Lewis for two years before splitting in 2006, seems to be enjoying the perks of dating a Hollywood director as she was given a prime spot to view the Olympics opening ceremony last month.

Dawson took to her Twitter page to post an image from the stadium in London's Stratford, adding the words, "What an amazing honour to witness the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics!!"
