Natalie Portman has love again, according to reports.

The 28-year-old beauty has quietly been dating Benjamin Millepied, a choreographer of her new movie, Black Swan, sources close to her are revealing.

Natalie recently stepped out with her fellow New Yorker for the first time in public at a low-key New Year’s Eve party in the city's Tribeca neighborhood.

“She's been subletting Sarah Michelle Gellar’s apartment and she wanted to celebrate with close friends and introduce them to Ben,” says an insider.

“They have been a couple since the fall, but she wanted to see how serious it was before she started to show him off to her inner circle. She really likes him.”

Black Swan, due out later this year, tells the story of ballerinas played by Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. Benjamin Millepied has been working with her on it.

Congrats to the happy couple if the rumors are true.

Not a real one, of course, but a faux interview for the comedy website Funny or Die, in which Natalie Portman and her little dog Whiz are on the hot seat!

In the video, the 27-year-old actress appears on a talk show called Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis. There's more awkward silence than not.

Check it out below and see if Natalie is funny or should die ...

Wow. Two of the planet's most beautiful women, opting for two of the most unique color choices on a night full of amazing Oscar fashion statements.

Sure, Heidi Klum only got an invite because she's hot and big into fashion, but that works for us. Natalie Portman? We just <3 her and her movies.

Actresses Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones are back with another PSA on Funny or Die, urging everybody to get out and cast a vote this Tuesday, November 4.

Just one more day and these PSAs will mercifully cease.

Just like their previous PSA, in which they recommended puppies to solve the financial crisis, Portman and Jones are pulling out the big, cuddly guns below ...

'DIE' AS USUAL: She's awesome and all, but Natalie Portman should stick to serious acting instead of humor. As for Rashida Jones? She should stick to The Office quotes.

For a comedy video website co-founded by Will Ferrell, Funny or Die is surprisingly unfunny. We're talking colossally unfunny here - and we have pretty low standards!

With the exception of Hayden Panettiere's recent John McCain campaign commercial, you'd be hard pressed to find a single video where you wouldn't choose "die."

See below. Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones both graduated from Harvard, so they know something about solving the financial crisis, right? Maybe, but not humor.

WE CHOOSE 'DIE': Rashida Jones was responsible for some great quotes from The Office, but doesn't have a great future in comedy if this skit is any indication.

Natalie Portman and Devendra Banhart have reportedly split up. Please, breathe. Try to contain your shock over this devastating piece of celebrity news.

Things apparently just weren't working out between the pair, who started dating in April. Portman appeared in the video for Banhart’s song "Carmensita."

They were "just too different" to make it work, sources say.

In fact, even more officially calling it quits with Devendra, Natalie was apparently on the lookout for a replacement. She might be pointing at you, guys ...

I WANT YOU: Guys, perhaps you will be the next to see the newly-single Natalie Portman naked. Good luck. We'll be holding our collective breath over here.

Natalie Portman currently stars in the movie My Blueberry Nights.

From the looks of the photo below, and the celebrity gossip rumors traveling around the Internet, however, it appears as though Portman could make a new documentary entitled My Ban-berry Nights.

Indeed, Portman has been spotted around New York City, canoodling with little-known folk singer Devendra Banhart. People Magazine capture the new couple below:

Kinda cute new couple alert: Devendra Banhart and Natalie Portman.

Portman - who previously had dated Nathan Bogle - will also be making a guest appearance in Banhart's upcoming music video, "Carmensita."

Overall, we're impressed by Devendra Banhart. Portman is a quality catch for a guy that looks like Cisco Adler.

We're not sure if Natalie Portman is still dating Nathan Bogle. We haven't heard from that alleged male model in quite some time. Sad.

But we know she's throwing her support behind Hillary Clinton in the race for president, although she likes the other contenders too.

Natalie tops Elle Magazine's April 2008 "Intelligent Women" issue, and in her interview, here's some of what she shared about politics:

"A lot of the stuff people say about [Hillary Clinton], I hear it and my stomach falls because it's so sexist. You ask people why they don't like her and it's because her husband cheated on her! That was obviously not her choice."

THG NOTE: We respect everyone's opinion, but really, Natalie? Didn't you go to Harvard? We would love to know the name of one person who actually used that reasoning.

  Natalie Portman is sharing some political views in the new Elle.

"She's so much more polished and experienced than anyone else. Last night, a friend, a social worker in L.A. who works with underprivileged kids, was saying how these girls who have never been interested in politics before are so excited a woman might be president. I mean, look how many women are in government ... Hillary Clinton is one of, what, [a handful of] female senators?"

THG NOTE: 16, actually, Natalie. There are also 71 U.S. Congresswomen, including the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, plus eight state governors and the U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. Which is great. We're just saying.

"I also like Barack Obama. I even like John McCain. I disagree with his war stance â€" which is a really big deal â€" but I think he's a very moral person. I met him and Hillary on the same day, actually, when I went to Washington with Finca [a nonprofit that gives loans to businesswomen in developing countries]. Hillary was by far the smartest person I met that day. Just totally focused, and knew more about the issues than anyone else, and was so able to go from one thing to the other."

She's beautiful. She's smart. She's talented. She's possibly dating Nathan Bogle.

Now Natalie Portman is stunning on the cover of The New York Times' Style Magazine.

Natalie Portman Red Carpet Look

The actress talks to the magazine about why we see little to no Natalie Portman naked or even in roles where she is sexualized, as well as how her heritage comes into play in her career.

Here are some interesting interview excerpts:

New York Times: You have had a kind of precocious child-woman quality in some of your films that has elicited a Lolita-esque response. Was that unnerving for you?

Natalie Portman: Yes. One scene was particularly uncomfortable: when I try to kiss Jean Reno. He was, obviously, much older. And around that time, there was the scene in Interview With the Vampire when Kirsten Dunst, who was around my age, kissed Brad Pitt. There were articles about young girls in adult roles, and my family ran away from anything that was Lolita-esque. And then, of course, they offered me Lolita itself. That was the ultimate no.

New York Times: Did it have anything to do with being Anne Frank on Broadway?

Natalie Portman: For many Jews, especially those who have experienced the Holocaust, Israel represents a place of refuge and acceptance. Perhaps. I was 16 when I played Anne Frank. It was tough: I went to high school full time. I was studying for my A.P. tests and my SATs while performing eight times a week. The audience reaction, night after night, was really moving. As Anne Frank, I really began to understand what Gertrude Stein meant about the power of repetition. Hearing words over and over increases their meaning and their impact.
