Natalie Portman is putting on a brave face amid the shocking reports that her husband of ten years, Benjamin Millepied, had an affair.

On Friday, June 2, reports started circulating that the couple were in the process of repairing their relationship after the 45-year-old ballet dancer allegedly had an affair with a younger French woman, reportedly a 25-year-old climate activist.

Though neither the Thor actress nor her husband have addressed the reports, the star has made her first public appearance since her relationship was thrust into the spotlight over the weekend.

Natalie was among the several stars attending the Ligue 1 match between soccer teams Paris Saint-Germain and Clermont Foot at the Parc des Princes on June 3rd in Paris, which saw PSG lose 2-3 to the latter team.

For the French sportsmatch, Natalie went for French chic, donning an oversized gray blazer over a crisp, white button down paired with classic blue jeans. She topped the look off with bold red lipstick, oversized cat-eye sunglasses, and she styled her brown hair in a sleek blow-out with a middle part.

They tied the knot with a Jewish ceremony in Big Sur, California in 2012. Following their nuptials, the two lived in Paris for a time, after Benjamin, who is French, became the director of dance with the Paris Opera Ballet.
