Representatives for Portman and Millepied did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.

Portman and Millepied first met on the set of “Black Swan,” for which Portman won the best actress Oscar in 2010. They wed in California in August 2012 and share a 12-year-old son, Aleph, and 7-year-old daughter, Amalia.

Portman most recently starred in Todd Haynes’ “May December” alongside Julianne Moore and Charles Melton, which is up for a best original screenplay Oscar on Sunday. For her performance as Elizabeth Berry, an actress who studies the life of a controversial woman (Moore) she is set to portray in a film, Portman received a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a motion picture, comedy or musical. She will next star in Guy Ritchie’s heist film “Fountain of Youth” opposite John Krasinski and Apple TV+ limited series “Lady in the Lake,” which she is also producing.

Millepied most recently choreographed Denis Villeneuve’s epic “Dune: Part Two,” in which he crafted the desert sandwalk Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya’s characters must do to prevent being attacked by giant sandworms. He made his feature-length directorial debut in 2022 with “Carmen,” a musical drama starring Melissa Barrera and Paul Mescal.
