Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan proved to be a landmark project for Natalie Portman, changing her life for the better both professionally and professionally.

Portman played the role of talented ballerina Nina whose psychological illness pushes her into a downward spiral and leads to dire consequences. The movie not only covers Nina’s psychological breakdown but also explores the tortured artist trope that won the actress an Oscar award for Best Actress in 2011.

Personally, it acted as a cupid in her life, as Portman met her future husband Benjamin Millepied on the sets. He served as a choreographer for the psychological thriller. And now, like the ending of Aronofsky’s movie where fans are left wondering about the fate of Nina, Portman finds herself in a position filled with open-ended conclusions.

Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied‘s relationship has hit roadblocks after it emerged that the French choreographer allegedly had an affair with climate activist Camille Etienne.

Initial reports suggested the 42-year-old could move on to the greener pastures after Millepied’s antics. But for the time being, Portman has reportedly “embraced a trial separation” as it is seen as the “best solution at this point.”

Insiders have indicated that the Closer actress is stuck in limbo as she also doesn’t want to just walk away from the relationship that took so much effort to grow over the years.

“It’s been very difficult to hold on to her marriage — and painful to let it go. She’s stuck in the middle,” they said. She “doesn’t want to throw it all away, but she’s also desperately unhappy and having serious trust issues.”

Portman shares two children with Millepied. Accordingly, it’s understandable that she has to take several things into account before taking any huge step.

Earlier this month, the No Strings Attached star returned to Sydney, the city which was her home for a brief period. She was Down Under to support the National Women’s Soccer League team, Angel City Football Club. She co-founded the LA-based women’s soccer team in 2020.

However, the highlight for the paparazzi was the absence of her wedding ring from her beautiful outfit- which included a chic grey blazer over a white dress and a pair of fitted pale blue jeans – during her walk around the Sydney Harbour. This, as expected, left many wondering if she was sending any message to Millepied.
