A few years ago, the name Benjamin Millepied would not really mean anything to most people. However, Benjamin was the man responsible for choreographing the Oscar winning, Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis movie Black Swan and he has not looked back since.
It was on the set of Black Swan that Benjamin Millepied met Natalie Portman and, now, three years later, Natalie and Benjamin are married and have a child together. Now, it seems that Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are movie to Paris, where Benjamin has become the Director of Paris Opera Ballet.
Millepied told the New York Times, “I certainly knew about the position, but I also knew that there were candidates from within the company," he said. "I was surprised, but I felt very quickly that the artistic dialogue between us was an exciting one. After a while I did feel there was a really good chance I might get the position. Which made my head spin.”
Things really have been moving fast for the talented Benjamin Millepied in the past few years and now he is going to have to cope with the choreography of 150 dancers at the Paris Opera Ballet.
