Natalie Portman’s husband, Benjamin Millepied, is reportedly worried about Natalie’s latest co-star for her new movie ‘Jane Got a Gun’. Rodrigo Santoro is the latest addition to the cast, but he is also Natalie’s ex-boyfriend; Rodrigo and Natalie used to date way back in 2009, long before she met Benjamin, but the duo were said to have a very torrid relationship.
Rodrigo joins a cast that already comprises of Michael Fassbender and Joel Edgerton, who are also very attractive leading men. In Touch is reporting that in addition to worrying about Natalie getting close to her ex-boyfriend, Benjamin is worried that she will also have to ‘resist’ temptation with Michael and Joel. Now, the story originates from In Touch, but there’s some truth in it that there's always some awkwardness when dealing with exes.
Considering that Natalie is a producer on the film and she has some say in casting, it’s to be taken that she had a hand in Rodrigo’s casting. If you also consider that Rodrigo is one of the leading men and there are likely to be very intimate scenes between him and Natalie, it makes sense for Benjamin to be slightly worried.
However, Natalie and Benjamin just had their first-born child and they seem very happy together, so while the worry and the rumors are not completely unfounded, it does seem to be something of a slight overreaction.
