It's all Love here! Grinning Natalie Portman flashes her wedding ring as she enjoys the French Open days after reports emerged of her husband Benjamin Millepied having an affair
Natalie Portman set aside her personal drama to enjoy a gripping sporting spectacle today when she was pictured smiling happily during an appearance at the French Open - amid reports that her husband of 11 years has been having an affair with a younger woman. The Oscar-winning actress, 41, looked in great spirits as she watched Iga Swiatek and Coco Gauff the quarter final match in Paris, despite a turbulent week that has thrown her personal life into the center of a furious scandal. Wearing a pretty print mini dress and a £690 Dior straw hat to keep cool in the sizzling temperatures, Natalie sat next to a male friend, with whom she enjoyed an animated conversation. Natalie was still wearing her antique diamond engagement ring and wedding band, just days after reports claimed her husband Benjamin Millepied, 45, had an affair with a 25-year-old woman. Last week Portman and Millepied's marriage was the subject of an article in the French publication, Voici, which claimed the French dancer and choreographer had an affair with the younger woman - a climate activist named Camille Étienne. However, People reported that an insider claimed the alleged affair with Étienne was 'short-lived' and is now 'over.' According to Page Six, Portman learned of her husband's cheating in early March, and that the couple had separated last year but were able to work through their relationship problems. And now, after this alleged transgression, they are again taking steps to do what they can to save the marriage. A source confirmed to DailyMail.com that the couple, who have been married for more than 10 years, are in fact still together. 'He knows he made an enormous mistake and he is doing all he can to get Natalie to forgive him and keep their family together,' a source revealed to People. 'Natalie is incredibly private and has no intention of playing this out in the media. Her biggest priority is protecting her children and their privacy.' Portman, a native of Jerusalem, Israel, and Millepied, who's from Bordeaux, France, share two children together: son Aleph, who turns 12 on June 14, and daughter Amalia, six. They met back in 2009 on the set of her psychological horror film Black Swan, for which he did the choreography, that resulted in her winning the Best Actress Oscar for her riveting performance.
