Natalie Portman, Benjamin Millepied announce divorce after 11 years of marriage

Actress Natalie Portman has divorced her director husband Benjamin Millepied which ended their 11 years married life.

Natalie Portman reportedly filed for divorce eight months ago.

The actress, 42, filed last July and the divorce was finalized last month in France, where Portman and Millepied, 46, live with their children, son Aleph, 12, and daughter Amalia, 7, reported People magazine.

Portman began her acting career at age twelve, when she starred as the young protégée of a hitman in the action film Léon: The Professional (1994).

Portman's career advanced with her starring roles as Evey Hammond in V for Vendetta (2005), Anne Boleyn in The Other Boleyn Girl (2008), and a troubled ballerina in the psychological thriller Black Swan (2010), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Navigating their under-the-radar separation, which followed media reports in May 2023 of an extramarital affair by Millepied, has not been easy for Portman.

"It was initially really tough for her, but her friends rallied around her and helped get her through the worst of it," a friend of the couple told People.

"Natalie is coming out of a really tough and painful year but she's come out the other side of it stronger and is finding joy in her family, friends and work," the friend said.

Natalie Portman and Benjamin married in 2012.

Before their marriage, the couple began dating in 2009 after having met while working together on the set of Black Swan.

Natalie Portman was last seen in 2023 released May December.
