Natalie Portman is an underrated, versatile actress. To say the very least. She's also smart because she went to Harvard.

Natalie Portman doesn't exactly go all Miley Cyrus in the new issue of Marie Claire.

But the Oscar winner does show a bit of skin.

She also tells the magazine that she's preparing to move to Paris with husband Benjamin Millipied and son Alpeph and initially "freaked" over the change.

“I just really really love it here," she says of Los Angeles. "It’s one of the most exciting places to be in the world right now. It’s really central in terms of the arts. It feels like things are happening in L.A., you know?"

Still, "everyone dreams of living in Paris," so Portman knows she can't complain.

Move over, Tom Cruise. Take a seat, Brad Pitt. Not so fast, Julia Roberts.

Forbes has come out with its list of "Hollywood's Best Actors for the Buck," a rundown of the stars who earn the most money for studios - and none of the usual A-listers are included.

  • Kristen Stewart Breaking Dawn Poster

Instead, Natalie Portman sits in first place, as the Black Swan actress earns $42.70 for every dollar she's paid.

A close second? Kristen Stewart, who owes almost all of her success (which translates to $40.60 for every dollar she's paid) to The Twilight Saga.

Natalie Portman bares all, tastefully, in her latest ad for Dior beauty.

Appropriately, Portman is advertising the Rouge Dior Nude Lipcolor.

The collection includes eight new shades, including a special hue, Grege #169, proceeds from which benefit her charity of choice, the Free the Children Association.

The organization uses leadership training to empower and inspire the world’s youth. You, subsequently, can feel good about admiring the image below:

“I chose the color Grège because it’s the one I’d pick to wear myself,” the actress, who married Benjamin Millepied this summer, says in a release. “

The number [169] contains different dates that are important to me and my family.” Grege was also the color of Dior’s “New Look” back in 1947.

This is the first Dior ad we’ve seen from Portman since last year, when John Galliano's anti-Semitic rant in Paris got him fired from the iconic brand.

In April of this year, it was announced that former Jil Sander creative director Raf Simons was taking over at Dior. A positive change, no doubt.

Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied got married in Big Sur, California, on Saturday. For the special occasion, she wore a wedding dress by Rodarte.

That label run is by Portman's pals, sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy, according to Us Weekly. Portman, 31, also wore flats, a veil and a floral crown.

Rodarte also designed Portman's iconic tutu for Black Swan, so her choice for the wedding is fitting. Check out a photo of Natalie in her wedding dress!

Natalie Portman, Husband

Portman has been a fan of Rodarte for years, wearing the label at events like the 83rd Annual Academy Awards and the 2012 Venice Film Festival.

The couple met on the Black Swan set and got engaged in 2010; Natalie announced her pregnancy at the same time their relationship broke.

Guests at Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied's traditional Jewish ceremony included Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin, 31, and Ivanka Trump, 30.

The newlyweds' 14-month-old son, Aleph, was also present.

Portman and Millepied announced that they were expecting a child in December 2010 and are now the parents of a 14-month old son named Aleph.

Officially a wife, Portman may now become a French citizen like her husband. Either way, we wish the parents and newlyweds nothing but the best!

Did Natalie Portman secretly marry fiance Benjamin Millepied recently?

The subtle rings they wore to the 2012 Academy Awards appeared to be a quiet way of announcing that marriage at the Oscars on Sunday evening.

Adding fuel to the fire, jeweler Jamie Wolf confirmed in a press release that she designed Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied’s “wedding rings.”

Wolf created two diamond rings for the 2011 Oscar winner, made to fit on either side of Portman's engagement ring, and a platinum band for Millepied.

Natalie Portman and Husband?

Both rings are eco-friendly, made with recycled metals and conflict-free diamonds.

Wolf, one of Millepied’s dancer friends, designed Portman’s engagement ring, too.

“Ben was exceptionally thoughtful and dedicated and patient to make sure  thatwe had everything right,” she said shortly after the actress debuted the sparkler.

That ring, made of recycled platinum and featuring certified conflict-free stones, was designed to fit in with Portman’s earth-friendly and vegan lifestyle.

Said Wolf, “We wanted everything about the ring to speak to things that are important to Natalie.” As for whether Natalie is officially Mrs. Millepied?

No confirmation there, and don't hold your breath for it, knowing how this uber-private couple operates. Good for them, and congratulations, probably!

Alef.

That's the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and now the name of Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied's baby boy. According to HollywoodLife, Portman, who was born in Israel, paid homage to her motherland in naming her son.

2011 Oscar Winner

Alef was born in mid-June but the newborn's first-time parents reportedly kept his name under wraps until letting it slip on an Israeli talk show.

Between the meaning of his name - Alef represents the "oneness of God" and the element of air - he calls one of the most talented women in Hollywood "mom."

As a renowned choreographer, dad is no stiff either.

No pressure, little guy.

Natalie Portman won an Oscar for Black Swan, but her experience on that movie's set also provided her with two even more special things.

He partnered with her in the film. Now he partners her in life.

The little guy's name is not yet known but you'll know when we do.
