This is the reason Natalie Portman was happy to leave France.
As you probably know, Natalie Portman who changed her real name to protect her identity when she was a child has been enjoying the perfect love for years with choreographer Benjamin Millepied. Together, the couple welcomed two children now aged 9 and 4. What you may not know, however, is that the actress moved to Paris when her husband was appointed head of the Opéra Garnier. Two years in the French capital will have obviously been enough for Natalie who did not hesitate on her return to Los Angeles to say how delighted she was to have left our country.
During his visit to Jimmy Kimmel’s set in 2016, Natalie Portman then returned to his experience and in particular the lack of friendliness of the French: “Everyone is smiling here. It’s so nice. They’re colder in France. I didn’t realize I got used to them until I came back here. People are going to smile at my child and I’m like ‘what a good person!’ The people are really lovely ”. But that’s not all, the actress also believes that France has lots of rules of politeness to absolutely follow: “A friend taught me that when you go somewhere you have to say ‘hello’ before you say anything, and then you have to wait two seconds before you say anything else. If you go to a store, you don’t. can’t say ‘do you have this in another size?’ otherwise they’ll think you are super rude and and they will be rude to you “. Definitely, Natalie Portman who admitted to being charmed by a famous actor does not keep a good memory of her time with us.
