Natalie and James Franco have each been honored with their own separate covers for this weeks edition of Entertainment Weekly! Natalie’s cover is gorgeous, a small preview has been added to the gallery.
Natalie Portman took her fans by surprise this week with a big announcement: She’s pregnant and engaged to marry her Black Swan choreographer, Benjamin Millepied. But that’s hardly the only excitement she’s got coming in the new year. The 29-year-old actress — who graces the cover of this week’s Oscar Race issue — is poised to score a Best Actress nomination for her career-high turn as a tormented ballerina in Black Swan, a role she says nearly destroyed her. “There were some nights that I thought I literally was going to die,” she says. “It was the first time I understood how you could get so wrapped up in a role that it could sort of take you down.” Instead, the performance has lifted Portman into the ranks of Oscar shoe-ins this year (alongside 127 Hours star and Oscar co-host James Franco, who also gets his own EW cover this week) and turned Black Swan into an unlikely box office star — with a little help from a steamy love scene between Portman and co-star Mila Kunis. “Everyone was so worried about who was going to want to see this movie,” Portman says. “I remember them being like, ‘How do you get guys to a ballet movie? How do you get girls to a thriller?’ And the answer is a lesbian scene. Everyone wants to see that.”
IFC Films has released the first look at ‘The Other Woman’, a film directed by Don Roos (Bounce) that was originally made back in 2009. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and was met with slightly positive reviews. It was only recently revealed that IFC Films will release the film On Demand this January 14th and in select theaters on February 4th 2011.

It has been announced today via People.com that Natalie and Benjamin Millepied are engaged and expecting their first child together! Natalie’s rep confirmed to people that Natalie is due in 2011! Here’s what Nat shared:
I have always kept my private life private but I will say that I am indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience.
All the staff here at Adoring Natalie Portman would like to congratulate Natalie on her engagement and wish her the best of luck in her pregnancy! This is very exciting news and I’m sure 2011 is going to be an amazing year for Natalie.
UK’s Empire met Natalie the morning after Black Swan’s world premiere in Venice and talked about the movie, playing two parts – the White Swan and the Black Swan – and challenges of it. You can see the scans and read the article below.
Fears?” muses Natalie Portman. I’m afraid of a lot. I am NOT a danger-seeker. I like extreme experiences, but not ones that i feel would threaten my life.
I like scuba diving, for example, but I wouldn’t free-dive. But, work-wise, I try to do things that scare me, because I know they’re gonna challenge me. Having said that, I didn’t know what I was in for with Black Swan. I didn’t realise what it was gonna be like. But the cliche is true: the more you put in, the more you get out.”
