When Life Imitates Art: Natalie Portman's Perilous Night At The Ballet

| Filed under: Natalie Portman

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!

    All the lies and drama surrounding Nat has totally changed my views on her, WOW.

    I though she was normal/good, as I get older it becomes more and more true then: you really can't have that much faith heroes, or belief in anyone but yourself, you only set yourself up to be let down.

    Such an unnecessary fall from Grace, so sad :( Karma is real though-just a thought

    I think it is awful that Sarah had to miss her solo just because Natalie was there. Sarah just stood up for herself and for her profession, and it seems like her complaints were with the producers and promoters of Black Swan, not with Natalie. As for Natalie and her boyfriend, maybe it was in poor taste for her to show up and steal the thunder from Isabella on what should have been Isabella's big night.

    I don't think it's fair that they asked Sarah to skip her perforamce for the night JUST because of Natalie. That isn't fair to her. This is her career, her livelihood. It isn't just fun and games to her. She doesn't get millions of dollars for one show. Even if Sarah wasn't speaking the truth, it's still no right to make her sit out a performance. And it was opening night. So unfair.

    She deserves all the negativity that surrounds her for being an entitled little bitch.. if you do not want drama in your life you do not go around screwing other peoples boyfriends and you thank the people that work for you. As simple as that.

    They look extremely happy. I wonder how many times she's done the "wtf have I done" thing while waking up in the morning.

    I've always thought Natalie was a shady character and the more that comes out about her, the more I dislike her. Sarah shouldn't have been made to sit out bc of some stupid, petty drama and Natalie isn't the 'bigger woman' for attending.

    Are you kidding me??? Natalie couldn't get the F-ing DVD? She had to show up at the theatre? Completely disrespectful!!! I have lost all respect for Natalie- Not only does she start seeing this guy when he already has a girlfriend, she has to rub it into this girl's face. Do you know how hard it must have been for this girl to concentrate on her performance?? I'm sorry for ranting, but this really pisses me off!

    Natalie can fuck off. I'm sick of us 'norms' being shunted aside for the benefit of the privileged, self-entitled elite. And there's Perez with his nose deep up her ass, as usual.

    If Natalie is now a world class ballet dancer because of her one year training, she will star in her boyfriend's ballet now right?

    Natalie portman is overrated. That's completly bullshit. Why did Sarah Lane have to quit dancing just because the lying actress showed up. If anything, Sarah Lane should have danced her heart out to show that you can't just become an expert ballerina without years of dedication and training. Natalie P. and her boyfriend have no shame to show up.

    wow, natalie should have just skipped the performance… i cant believe they asked sarah to sit it out… thats SO WRONG.. once again REAL HARD WORKING PEOPLE are forced to make way for the rich and famous.. so ridiculous



  12. 12

    i think we're all in agreement. why did they have to go see this show. was somebody forcing them. ugh. so distasteful.



  13. 13

    It's unbelievable that they would even consider asking Sarah to sit out her solo performance. Outrageous, ridiculous and insulting not to mention childish. It's Portman's choice to attend or not attend the performance as is. Who's who run amok. Disgusting.



  15. 15

    what a miserable looking couple. way to go, ruining a night for sarah and isabella…
    ridiculous that they should suffer for a entitled, home wrecking, fraud



  16. 16

    I don't understand why they asked Sarah to sit out her solo. Natalie knew who was in the ballet. She probably went to see her dance and show her support. People need to stop assuming they know what's best and let life run it's course. What woulda really happened if that ballerina danced her dance, like she was supposed to, and Natalie saw it? NOTHING! Except she would have been allowed to showcase her abilities and everyone, including Natalie I bet, would have enjoyed it.

    What creepy people. Both him and her. I read about this stuff happening, I shudder inside at how callous they both are.

    Natalie's "perilous" night at the ballet……give me a break, you reap what you sow. If you engage in classless behavior you get to deal with the drama. I feel badly for the dancers, Natalie should have been no where near that opening.
