The pregnant actress paid tribute to her fiancée Benjamin Millepied and spoke of her growing bump after winning the award for Best Actress
Pregnant actress Natalie Portman paid tribute to her fiancée Benjamin Millepied and spoke of her growing bump at Hollywood’s glittering Golden Globe Awards lat night, after winning the prize for Best Actress in thriller Black Swan.
The blooming star – who announced both her pregnancy and engagement over Christmas – walked the red carpet alone in a flowing pink Viktor and Rolf gown.
But despite keeping a distance from new fiancée Benjamin Millipied in front of the cameras, Natalie paid tribute to the dancer during her acceptance speech, crediting him with helping her ‘bring more creation into the world.’
After thanking her co-stars, and parents for ‘bringing me into this world,’ she added: ‘And thank you to Benjamin for helping me to bring more creation into the world’.
And with the serious part of her speech done and dusted, she joked: ‘Benjamin choreographed the film, and also you may remember him as the guy in the movie who was asked: “Would you sleep with that girl” and he said, “no”.
‘He is the best actor – he totally loves sleeping with me.’
And the Golden Globes wasn’t the only event the Black Swan beauty was attending over the weekend. On Friday, Natalie walked the red carpet at the Critics Choice Awards, where she won Best Actress.
This time, she spoke of her pregnancy in her acceptance speech, and thanked Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky for introducing her to her fiancée.
‘I met you 10 years ago in a HoJo in Times Square. You were classy then, you’re keeping it classy now,’ she teased. ‘I keep telling Darren, “you made me very skinny and now you’re indirectly responsible for making me fat, since you introduced me to my love.” But I am incredibly grateful for that most special of gifts.’
The star also thanked her parents, who were in the audience, adding: ‘If I am a shadow as good a parent, an echo, then I will be the best in the world, so thank you.’
