Family day out! Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied were spotted out on Saturday taking their son Aleph for lunch at the Gjelina Restaurant in Venice, California.
The actress was pretty in a red sundress as she carried her little guy to the car. Not often seen out, Aleph, 2, stayed close to his parents as they exited through the back door.
It has been a busy year for Natalie, who has filmed 3 movies recently.
This Fall she will direct her first feature film, “A Tale of Love and Darkness,” an adaptation of the autobiography of author Amos Oz.
“It’s going to be a completely different experience. When I met Amos, he said to me, ‘Don’t try and be faithful to the book. Make your own piece of art.’ That was really freeing.”
“I don’t see it as a political film or book,” Natalie added. “It’s a story about people and a family at a particular time in history. The best way for people to understand each other better is to hear particular stories. That’s a beautiful thing that film and literature can do.”
“I’ve worked there for a few months at a time,” Natalie said of the City of Light. “This will be both our first time to live in Paris. So, we are very excited!”
