Natalie Portman won best actress last night at the Golden Globes and had her choreographer fiance to thank.
"Thank you to Benjamin, who is helping me continue this creation of creating more life," the pregnant star said of Millepied after she thanked her parents for raising her."Benjamin choreographed the film, and also you might remember him in the movie as the guy when they ask, 'Would you sleep with that girl?' And he's like, 'Pffsh, no.' He's the best actor. It's not true: He totally wants to sleep with me!" she laughed heartily.
"Darren, I met you 10 years ago, and we talked about this for the first time, and thank you for continuing to work on this movie and then to give me such a beautiful, beautiful gift with this role," she said. "Every time we finished our takes, you would say, 'Now do this one for yourself,' and that gave me such beautiful inspiration as an actor to not just be amused, that I could create on my own as well. I love you so much and you're the most wonderful and I'm so grateful to you."
