Natalie Portman shows some serious skin in the November issue of Marie Claire. Modeling a midriff-baring Dior Haute Couture dress, the 32-year-old Oscar winner strikes a seductive pose for the magazine's cover. In the accompanying interview, the actress dishes on everything from her new life in France to the lessons she's learned from her parents.
The Israeli-born beauty says she will move the City of Light "at the end of next year." The reason? Her French choreographer Benjamin Millepied, has been named director of the Paris Opera Ballet. Portman says she's going to miss California. "I just really, really love it here," says the star, who was raised primarily on the East Coast. "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? New York is more where art is bought than where art is made."
"I'm really lucky," she adds. "When Ben asked me if I wanted to go to Paris, I freaked. Everyone dreams of living in Paris."
