Teary Natalie Portman Thanks "My Beautiful Love" for Baby-to-Be
The Queen's speech!
Natalie Portman cried an awful lot in Black Swan -- but at Sunday's Oscars, the Best Actress winner (who glowed in a gown by Rodarte) wept tears of joy, not anguish, at the podium.
Tearful throughout her emotional, gracious speech, the pregnant star, 29, seemingly forgot no one who helped her on Black Swan and throughout her Hollywood career, which began when she was 11.
"I truly, sincerely wish the award was to work with my fellow nominees," Portman gushed of Jennifer Lawrence, Annette Bening, Nicole Kidman and Michelle Williams. "I'm so in awe of you."
The star thanked her parents Avi and Shelley "for giving me life and for giving me the opportunity to work...[For teaching me] how to be a good human being by example."
And, no, she didn't forget Benjamin Millepied, her fiance and father of her unborn child. She thanked "my beautiful love" Millepied, 33, a star ballet dancer and Black Swan's choreographer. "[He] has now given me my most important role of my life," said the expectant mom.
Before the star ascended to the podium, Millepied kissed Portman, and sweetly escorted her onstage.
