If Mila Kunis had just shown up sometime at the intermission, Darren Aronofsky could have plowed in with a crew and shot a Black Swan sequel!
On Tuesday evening, Natalie Portman put on her maternity best to accompany her baby daddy, Benjamin Millepied, to the opening of his new piece at the American Ballet Theater. It was big of her to agree to attend, considering the women she risked running into by going. The show features both Sarah Lane, Natalie's ballet body-double from Black Swan who not-so graciously threw Natalie under the bus a few months ago over the amount of dancing she did, and Benjamin's ex-girlfriend, Isabella Boylston, who Ben promptly dumped after meeting Natalie while working on Black Swan.
So not the drama - yeah right!
Thankfully, someone in the company had the foresight to ask Sarah to sit out of her her solo performance this particular evening, thus avoiding an awkward encounter that could have quickly gone awry. However, seeing as Isabella is the star of the ballet, there was no getting around seeing her at the theater. However, aside from the obvious tension, there was no reported drama between the ladies and their shared beau.
That's probably for the best. The last thing Natalie needs this close to her due date is stress. Girl's about to pop any second now!
