Natalie Portman is all smiles since announcing her second pregnancy at the Venice Film Festival in September. The “Star Wars” actress flaunted her baby bump and looked fabulous in a stunning white Christian Dior gown during the premiere of her upcoming biopic “Jackie.”
Soon to be seen portraying the former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the movie, the 35-year-old actress wore a designer dress that featured a smiling sun on her bump from the Christian Dior’s Spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection. The screening was held at the American Film Institute’s Festival in Los Angeles on Monday.
Portman also donned a matching white blazer and tied her head in a chic chignon. This is the second time she is pregnant with husband Benjamin Millepied. Together they have a 5-year-old son named Aleph.
The Oscar-winning actress will be seen next month in “Jackie,” a biopic that revolves around the story of Jacqueline Kennedy during the days following her husband and former President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Jacqueline became famous for her dignity and poise during her time as the First Lady of the U.S. The movie also seeks to give an idea of her state of mind after losing her husband. He was gunned down in 1963.
Several industry analysts have pointed out that Portman’s superb portrayal of Jacqueline in “Jackie” puts her in the race for yet another Academy Award in the Best Actress category. If she does win an Oscar, the mother of one will have two things to celebrate in 2017: The Academy Award and a new family member.
The buzzworthy movie also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Billy Crudup, Greta Gerwig, Richard E. Grant, John Hurt and Max Casella. It has been directed by Pablo Larraín.
“Jackie” hits theatres on Dec. 2.
