Natalie Portman isn't shying away from the spotlight amid the shocking reports that her husband of ten years, Benjamin Millepied, had an affair.

On Friday, June 2, reports circulated 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, Natalie isn't in seclusion and was spotted out still wearing her engagement ring and wedding band while in Paris.

In photos from the event, Natalie looked chic as ever wearing a printed mini dress with billowing sleeves featuring a waist-accentuating, wrap-around cut, which she accessorized with black, peep-toe espadrille-style platforms, a black top-handle bag, a straw hat by Dior, though most notably of course, her round diamond ring on her left hand.

Her first public appearance following the affair reports came on June 3, when she was among the several stars attending the Ligue 1 match between soccer teams Paris Saint-Germain and Clermont Foot at the Parc des Princes in Paris, which saw PSG lose 2-3 to the latter team.

For the French sportsmatch, Natalie donned 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.

She and her husband first met on the set of the 2010 movie Black Swan, for which she won the Best Actress award at the 2011 Academy Awards, and Benjamin created the choreography for. At the time, he was dating and living with fellow professional dancer Isabella Boylston.

The couple's last red carpet appearance

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.

They welcomed their 11-year-old son Aleph in 2011 – he is named after the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet –  and later on they welcomed daughter Amalia in 2016, the same year they moved from Paris to Los Angeles.
