Millions of people around the world wept when Natalie Portman appeared on national television with a hot French ballet dancer on one arm, and a very pregnant belly. Hopes were dashed around the globe. She was that rare combination of smart (she graduated from Harvard), geek-able (she played Padma after all!), gorgeous (just look at her), and accessible (she hooked up Zach with Braff for "Garden State" – maybe I have chance, too). She was, in short, a total fantasy babe. Her post-"Black Swan" press junket left no doubt in anyone's mind that she was now completely off the market, however. After winning the Oscar, the Golden Globe, and the BAFTA Award for Best Actress, and then giving birth to a son in 2011, Ms. Portman largely disappeared from the public eye. She resurfaced recently, when it was announced that she and Mr. Millipied had finally made it all official, when they were married in a private ceremony in Big Sur, California. In 2010, just after completing "Black Swan", Ms. Portman moved from Manhattan to Los Angeles, where she purchased a stunning home in the Los Feliz area. Mr. Millipied retired from the New York City Ballet a year later, and, subsequently, relocated to the West Coast to join her, and to launch his own dance company.
Natalie Portman's house is 4,866 square feet, and was built in the 1930s. The main house contains four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and there are two smaller, separate guesthouses on the 18,000 square feet of grounds as well. Outside of Natalie Portman's house, there is a large backyard with swimming pool, a courtyard, and a stone loggia. Stunning hardwood floors and paneling, arched doorways, multiple fireplaces, and massive windows lend Natalie Portman's house a slightly old world charm that is markedly different from the interior design aesthetic of most of her peers. Purchased for $3.25 million, it seems like a lovely place to raise a family.
