WASHINGTON - Natalie Portman-who cried an awful lot in ‘Black Swan’-couldn’t hold her tears of joy when she grabbed the Best Actress Oscar.
Tearful throughout her emotional, gracious speech, the soon-to-be-mum seemingly forgot no one who helped her on ‘Black Swan’ and throughout her Hollywood career, which began when she was 11, reports UsMagazine.com.
“I truly, sincerely wish the award was to work with my fellow nominees. I’m so in awe of you,” the 29-year-old gushed of Jennifer Lawrence, Annette Bening, Nicole Kidman and Michelle Williams.
The star thanked her parents Avi and Shelley “for giving me life and for giving me the opportunity to work…[For teaching me] how to be a good human being by example.”
Also, she thanked Benjamin Millepied, her fiance and father of her unborn child saying, “[He] has now given me my most important role of my life.” (ANI)
