In a Hollywood full of reality stars and Paris Hilton types, it might come as a shock that some celebs are serious brainiacs. Models get a bad rap when it comes to smarts, but did you know that supermodel Cindy Crawford was valedictorian of her high school and received a scholarship to study chemical engineering at Northwestern University? True story. And did you know that Parks and Recreation funny lady Rashida Jones doubles as a real-life Harvard graduate?
Find out which celeb couples are surprisingly still on!
Natalie Portman has once again gone tastefully topless for a new ad campaign for Dior's makeup line Diorskin Nude. She has previously done topless Dior ads for Miss Dior Cherie perfume.
Natalie Portman and her dashing husband Benjamin Millepied had a beautiful wedding, and one that strictly honored their faith and culture.
After seeing Natalie Portman and her Black Swan baby daddy Benjamin Millepied at the Oscars this past year sporting wedding bands, we assumed that the 31-year-old actress had pulled a fast one on us and married in secret.
Remember Natalie Portman? That's a joke question, because how could you ever forget her! The Black Swan actress was spotted out in Orange County yesterday holding her adorable son, Aleph. We rarely see photos of this cute little guy, and he's gotten so big!
On Sunday night, Natalie Portman hit the stage of the 84th Academy Awards to present the Best Actor Oscar. Just one year ago, she was pregnant and accepting the Oscar for Best Actress for her role in Black Swan, accompanied that night by her partner and baby's father, Benjamin Millepied.
The Daily Beast's picks for the wildest celebrity baby names of 2011— so far, with suspected crazy baby-namers Keri Russell, Lily Allen, Tori Spelling, Jenna Fischer, and January Jones due in the coming months.
Are 'No Strings Attached' and 'Friends With Benefits' the same movie? I know, I know—your first reaction is probably the one that I had. "This is old news! We already know these movies are dealing with the same best-friends-sleep-together-then-fall-in-love story." But neither of us is as awesome as The Blind Film Critic, who mashed up the two trailers to show that even the perspective shots are the exact same. (OK, so he probably didn't make it himself, but he had someone combine the trailers to show the truth.)
Mazel tov to Natalie Portman and her choreographer fiancé Benjamin Millepied, who are now the proud parents of a baby son! After being pregnant for what seemed like forever (or at least all of this past awards season,) Natalie gave birth to a boy in New York City. This is the first child for the 30-year-old Oscar-winning actress who met Benjamin, 34, on the set of Black Swan in 2009.
According to Page Six, it seems that the scene at the American Ballet Theater Tuesday evening resembled something out of a slightly classier Jerry Springer-style scenario. Picture this: choreographer Benjamin Millepied brings his majorly preggers fiance (aka Natalie Portman, natch) to the debut of his newest dance creation, where he's cast former girlfriend Isabella Boylston as the lead and Portman's former dance doppelganger Sarah Lane is noticeably, perhaps intentionally absent amid her previous allegations. (Whew! And we thought the drama took place onscreen in Black Swan.)
It may be 2011, but former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee clearly embraces values from a different era. The one-time presidential nominee recently slammed Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman for having a baby out of wedlock, calling her pregnancy "troubling," even though Natalie is engaged to the unborn baby's father, Benjamin Millepied.
Last night's Academy Awards were funny and glamorous and, sure, a little bit boring and cheesy—but that's the Oscars, right? A list of the official winners of the 2011 Oscars is at the end of this post. But first, we're giving a few awards of our own.
Over the years, thanking your significant other has become commonplace at award ceremonies. Now, we just expect to hear some spouse-gratitude in pretty much every acceptance speech. But luckily, scattered between all the average shout-outs, are some super-sweet moments laced with a touch of romantic sentiment. With this list, we count down our top ten favorites.
