The Atlantic Wire has already dubbed it “The Natalie Portman Secret Marriage Watch.”
Eagle-eyed viewers of Sunday’s Academy Awards noted that the Jerusalem-born actress didn’t limit her bling to just her lovely ears and neck — she also had a new band on her left ring finger.
Those same viewers, who might — just might — have a little too much time on their hands, noted that Portman’s fiance, French choreographer Benjamin Millepied, is also sporting a new ring these days. The pair, who met on the set of “Black Swan,” which won Portman an Oscar last year, have been engaged since December 2010. They also share an 8-month-old son, Aleph, named for the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
Representatives for the actress declined to respond to a New York Daily News query about a clandestine wedding, which means the Secret Marriage Watch must continue.
