I’ve updated the gallery with a vintage photo of Natalie when she was 12-years-old. Not quite sure if this is a personal photo or if it’s from a shoot. Thanks to Edenliao for the find.
This is possibly good news for Star Wars fans…although fans who are also Natalie fans might want not be too thrilled. Lucasfilm was planning to re-release the prequel trilogy into theatres with the draw being that the films would now be post converted to 3D. The Phantom Menaces already came out last year and underperformed while still making a decent chunk of change, and the second two films were due later this year.
Well, with JJ Abrams now on board for Star Wars 7, it seems Lucasfilm (or Disney) would prefer to focus on that new film, which means that Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith will no longer be receiving their 3D re-release.
Personally I couldn’t care less, but how about you guys?
With Benjamin beginning his work with the Paris ballet in September of 2014, it still could be quite awhile before they make the move. However, I’m curious as to how many fans see this as a good thing versus a bad thing. I’ve also included options for those who are somewhere in the middle.
Natalie’s Dior campaign begun with the gentle pink themed shoot and video directed by Sofia Coppola. Well the new Miss Dior campaign is on the way and we have three new photos for you guys. UPDATE – And one more!
That’s not all, we have more after the jump. Just click “read more”.
Natalie and Benjamin are moving to Paris. Natalie has always had strong feelings for France, probably starting from the womb where her parents likely played the French song that she is named after. Marrying a french guy meant that she’s spent even more time in the country and now it looks like they’re going to make that permanent. Well…as permanent as a home is for a celebrity who spends half the year traveling around.
Millepied will become the new director of the Paris Opera Ballet.
He said to the AFP that they will both move to Paris.
“I won’t come without my family; it’s a family choice”, he said. “It’s a chance for us to be able to live in Paris, because I’ve been living in New York for 20 years. We are both very happy.”
Asking about the impact on Natalie’s career, he said: “Her career is such that living in Paris won’t prevent her from working abroad. Also, there are very talented directors in Europe, so why not concentrating a part of our careers on European projects.”
He said they will start looking for a place to live “soon, because I will have to spend a lot of time there.”
More after the jump…
Dior keeps on giving. Today we have two new photos from Natalie’s new campaign for Diorshow Iconic Overcurl and Mono Eyeshadow. And even though the resolution can be improved upon (*sends up the Eden-signal*) they are both really beautiful shots, don’t you agree?
A couple days ago we posted some tweets from someone spotting Natalie, her dad and Aleph at Nobu restaurant. Well Just Jared had photos from the arrival/departure, which show that Benjamin was with her as well. In the photos it looks like she’s having a bit of an argument…that other lady better be careful otherwise Natalie might sh*t in her shoes.
Someone give this girl a hand. Yet more candid photos from a Monday running errands in LA. No Aleph this time, unless he’s in the bag…
A big thanks to Kitten and xiaonianp.
Rachel and I have never been the most coordinated duo. But to be clear, my update went up 2 minutes earlier than hers
I’m leaving them both up because it’s damn funny.
If you’re having issues connecting to this site it’s because our DNS provider is under a DDoS attack. It should be ok as of Tuesday 8 am UTC. (link)
Apparently when we launched user registration was disabled. It’s now been enabled meaning you can go ahead and register a profile here on use your Facebook / Twitter / Linked / Google account to set up an account here and use it for authorization so you don’t have one more username/password combo to memorize.
And when launching this site in WordPress with a custom theme we really should have started a feedback-thread instead of discussing things in the comments to different news-posts since they are now impossible to keep track of. But better late than never. Please go to this thread in our forum to discuss improvements, give suggestions, bug reports or just to say what you think.
– Looks like Natalie was out to dinner at Nobu with her dad and Aleph on Saturday night (and maybe Ben and her mom as well). This tweet broke the news and this one, with a photo of Avner and Aleph, sealed the deal.
– Forbes has another dodgy financial list – running down Hollywood’s most bankable romantic couples (of recent years). It really is an awful idea with even worse parameters…it’s like they decided “well what list can we do to show off to get some of that Twilight traffic?”. Skip all that noise and just click here to go to Natalie’s page, which also includes a really bad mistake.
– Finally, the Sundance Film Festival is on the go at the moment and it’s no doubt jam packed with great little movies that nobody will see. Well, The Playlist have put together a look at the biggest financial successes that came out of Sundance and one of Natalie’s film’s made the cut. Any idea what it is?
I’m about to mess around with my hardware and reinstall my OS. So if I disappear for awhile…things did not go as planned.
As a parting gift, here are some new candids of Natalie shopping at Gelson’s on Friday. Thanks to Kitten and Gossip Center. UPDATE – I’ve replaced those with HQ versions. Thanks to silkecut ~ Rachel
