Natalie Portman Comes Out of Hiding, Hangs Out With Reese Witherspoon

Natalie Portman, whose public appearances these days are reduced to the Oscars and not a whole lot else, stepped out in a very nice red dress on Thursday to support her husband Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project Inaugural Benefit Gala.

At one point, the Oscar-winning beauty stopped to talk to another Oscar-winning beauty, Reese Witherspoon, about world domination, and totalitarianism and other powerful things that come about when you put two Oscar-winning beauties in the same room.

Okay, they probably just talked about their kids, but hey, you never know.

Naturally, Portman’s husband was also at the event, and, naturally, he looked really cute. You can see for yourself in the gallery, above.
