Natalie Portman enjoying pregnancy, being the new Audrey Hepburn

Natalie Portman‘s life is going well right now – she’s engaged to be married to Benjamin Millepied, she’s pregnant with her first child, and she just won the Desert Palm Achievement award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.  Portman has said in interviews that her pregnancy got off to a rough start, but she’s feeling fine now and looking forward to the birth of her baby.

Jake Gyllenhaal had the honor of presenting Portman with her award, and in his presentation speech he called her “the Audrey Hepburn of our generation.”  Those are some pretty strong words, and I think it remains to be seen whether Portman will actually live up to them.  I like her, but I don’t think she’s quite up to Hepburn caliber just yet.
