Watch Too Pregnant to Attend Oscars in Person Natalie Portman’s ‘Mean Tweets’ Segment


Before the Academy Award broadcast on Sunday, February 27 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California, second-time mom-to-be Natalie Portman announced that she was too pregnant to attend.

The Jackie biopic star released a statement about her decision to sit out the award show and stay home with husband, choreographer Benjamin Millepied and 5-year old son, Aleph.

“Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards,” Postman said in a statement to E! News on Saturday. “I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends.”

The actress is nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for her leading role in Jackie. She had previously won an Oscar for the 2010 film Black Swan and was nominated before that for her supporting role in the 2004 movie Closer.

Portman was also nominated for Best Female Lead at the Film Independent Spirit Awards for her role in Jackie. The film also got an Oscar nod for Best Feature, Best Director and Best Editing.

Back in 2011, she accepted her Oscar for Best Actress while pregnant with Aleph and thanked Millepied, a choreographer who worked with her on the film, for giving her “the most important role of [her] life.” Her then soon-to-be-born son. Awwww!

Though not there in person, she was seen in an Oscar night version of  host Jimmy Kimmel‘s popular “Mean Tweets” segment.

She read the first one actually: “I feel like if u went to lunch w/Natalie Portman she would only order a hot tea with Lemon and MAYBE some toast, but definitely not an entree tho,” she read before the camera pans out and she turns to show the silhouette of her big belly.”


“You’re wrong,” she whispers looking the camera dead in the eye! Hilarious.


Moms rocking the “red carpet” at the Film Independent Spirit Awards

Celeb moms rocked the Film Independent’s Spirit Awards yesterday, March 1 at Santa Monica Beach, California. The show is the first to recognize the best among the best in independent films produced, created and distributed without  major studio backing.
Relatively new Bellytich Bumpwatch mom Kristen Bell looks to have totally bounced back to pre-pregnancy shape as she showed off a very svelte figure in a cobalt blue strapless Reem Acra dress from fall 2014 with black embroidered lace trim detailed on the side. She polished the look in Christian Louboutin sandals and her wrist blinged with a Piaget watch. Lovely!
Paula Patton looks happy and radiant without her husband Robin Thicke who has professed plans to try to win her back despite her plans to separate from him after over a decade of a relationship and marriage. The Mission Impossible actress showed off some legs in a bright yellow Lorena Sarbu lace mini dress accented with Anito Ko jewels and Christian Louboutin heels. 
So my goal for 2014 is to look as gawgeous as Camila Alves McConaughey  did in that white Juan Carlos Obando jumpsuit, David Webb earrings and nude Loubotin pumps. Gotta make it happen.  Her husband is up for Best Actor tonight at the Academy Awards for his amazing work in Dallas Buyers’ Club.
We loved her candid autobiography about pregnancy in Hollywood and we really really love this bright tangerine Maria Lucia Hohan chiffon dress with the deep plunging neckline and exposed sides that American Hustler actress Elisabetth Rohm wore. The Antonini  jewels made it extra special but um tone down on the tanning spray.
Also doing bright orange was Hollywood veteran and American Horror Story actress Angela Bassett who looked amazing in this figure hugging pencil length number. Hawtness for Dayzzzzzz!
Reese Witherspoon went brave in super short mini ensemble with lace overlay but overdid the matching with the shoes and handbag and then lost points too with a shapeless bodice. oh. next time.
Finally, Sarah Michelle Gellar breezed past red carpet in a flow yellow and black top over black tights and pumps. Her body was banging and the short haircut gorgeous! Looking good mama! 
Conclusion: Our moms know how to be MILFs. They really do!
