Natalie Portman is recently a new mom as she gave birth to son Aleph Portman-Millepied this past June. And it’s her first post-baby role that we’re most looking forward to. But, unfortunately, we may have to wait quite a while.
The 30-year-old actress has reportedly turned down her first post-baby role in order to focus on being a mom. Portman was offered the lead in the film Adaline, which centers on a woman who becomes ageless after being in an accident in the early 1990s. Years later, she meets a man for whom it may be worth forsaking her immortal. But her rep has confirmed that Portman chose to turn it down!
This past May, Portman suggested that she may retire from acting all together to focus on raising a family in her desire to emulate screen icon Audrey Hepburn. She argued to The Sun‘s Buzz Magazine: “Audrey made some good choices in life… More and more I realize how unimportant it is to be in the history books or anything like that. Putting time and energy into your children – that’s valuable.”
How would you feel about Natalie retiring from acting?
