Natalie Portman seemed distressed during a park outing with her kids and her husband, Benjamin Millepied, amid his alleged affair with a younger woman.
In photos exclusively obtained by Page Six, the “Black Swan” star and the ballet dancer were photographed Saturday having an intense conversation while sitting on the bench together.
At one point, Portman, 42, looked like she was wiping away tears under her cat-eye sunglasses.
During the conversation, the mom of two put her head down on the top of the bench as Millepied, who turned 46 Saturday, looked at her.
It’s the first time the couple has been seen together since news broke that the French dancer was allegedly having an affair with 25-year-old Camille Étienne.
Last week, Page Six exclusively reported that Millepied was fighting to save his marriage to his wife.
Sources told us that the pair, who tied the knot in 2012, separated last year but worked through their issues — only for the latest allegations to come out.
“They have not split and are trying to work things out,” a source close to the couple told Page Six. “Ben is doing everything he can to get Natalie to forgive him. He loves her and their family.”
The insider added that Portman is “incredibly private” and “her biggest focus right now is protecting the kids.”
French magazine Voici shared photos of Millepied and Étienne going into his office separately on May 24 and exiting 10 minutes apart two hours later.

The publication alleged that the father of two had been spending time with the climate activist and claimed that Portman learned about her husband’s alleged affair “in early March.”
In the days following the news, the “No Strings Attached” actress has been spotted out around Paris — sans her beau.
Last Saturday, she was all smiles while watching a soccer match between Paris Saint-Germain and Clermont Foot 63 at the Parc des Princes stadium.
And on Wednesday, she sat in the stands with friends as they watched the 2023 French Open. Throughout the tennis tournament, Portman flashed her 4-carat, Jamie Wolf-designed wedding ring.
Meanwhile, Millepied has also been spotted solo. On Thursday, he attended the screening of his first movie, “Carment,” in Paris without his wife.
Portman and Millepied met in 2009 on the set of her ballet movie, “Black Swan,” which he choreographed.
Three years later, they tied the knot in Big Sur, Calif.
The couple share two children: son Aleph, 12, and daughter Amalia, 6.
