It has been reported that Black Swan actress Natalie Portman has been doing ballet to help her lose the baby weight that she had, after giving birth to her son Aleph. It has also been claimed that Natalie often goes out running with her partner Benjamin Millepied.
The two were recently spotted out running together, while Portman is also believed to have hired a personal trainer, in the form of New York City Ballet dancer Andie Hecker.
