As Alice in the movie CloserShe is now a very well-known actress also recognized for her charity work and support for animal rights. This year, she is nominated [for the second time] for an Academy Award for her role in Black Swan. I'm so pissed that I haven't been able to see it yet but I have heard it's great and plan to see it soon. Perhaps the best news, though, is that Natalie recently joined several other celebrities in announcing she is pregnant. The father is her fiancé, Benjamin Millepied, who was a choreographer for Black Swan.

She is one of the few current pregnant celebrities who seems like she will make a terrific mother. From interviews I have seen and read, she comes across as a very socially conscious and caring person and I'm sure will instill that in her child. I'm definitely less interested in what she names her baby [though I imagine a classic name with at least some French influence] and more anxious to see how she is as a mom.
