Will Natalie Portman Quit Hollywood For Her Baby? Say It Isn't So!

The Black Swan Oscar winner has hinted she’s ready to walk away from her acting career to be a full-time mom — just like her screen idol Audrey Hepburn did.

Heavily pregnant Natalie Portman is due to give birth to her first baby with fiance Benjamin Millipied this summer. Could that be the last we see of her?

“Audrey made some good choices in life,” Natalie, 29, tells Buzz Magazine. “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”.

Audrey Hepburn famously turned her back on acting in her late 30s to focus more on her family — after making her name in movie classics like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady.

Will Natalie really follow suit? Or is she just worn out after packing in a string of acting jobs over the last year, including Black Swan, Your Highness and Thor — all followed by a tiring pregnancy!

We hope so. We want you to be a dedicated mom Natalie — but don’t disappear!

What do you think HollyMoms? Is Natalie being sensible — or can she juggle motherhood with a movie career?
