Natalie Portman says having a public focus on her split from husband of 12 ... trends now

Natalie Portman reportedly split from her ballet dancer husband Benjamin Millepied last year and has been going out on the town without her wedding band on for the past several months.

But the 42-year-old star has yet to address the status of her relationship. 

On Wednesday the Oscar-winning actress lightly touched on the breakup in the 30th annual Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair magazine where she posed with Bradley Cooper, Pedro Pascal and Colman Domingo.

When asked how she feels about having her marriage written about she said it was 'terrible.'

'It’s terrible, and I have no desire to contribute to it,' she said frankly to writer Keziah Weir who retorted it was not too fun to have to ask the question.

Natalie and Benjamin wed in 2012 after meeting on the set of Black Swan.

Together they have two children: son Aleph, 12, and daughter Amalia, six.

Portman has yet to make a public comment about her split from her spouse after it was alleged that he had cheated on her with another woman.

In a January WSJ interview she talked about living in Paris with her two children but made no mention of Benjamin, which was the biggest hint yet that they no longer live together. 

The May December actress also said in her Vanity Fair interview that she has been careful to protect her privacy.

'I got very protective of it very early on. I chose a different name when I started, which was kind of an interesting way that I separated identities,' she shared; her first film was The Professional in 1994.

'I would get upset if someone at school called me Natalie Portman. I was like, if you know me, you know me as Natalie Hershlag at school,' she admitted making it sounds as if she had a tough time balancing fame and real life.

'It was kind of an extreme bifurcation of identity that I’ve tried to integrate a little bit more as an adult. 

'I felt like it was not accepting that both were part of me, that there wasn’t a “real” me and a “pretend” me, and that they didn’t necessarily have different names. 

'And it’s not just two different versions, there are multitudes of ways other people see me, both public and private, and there are multitudes of ways I see myself. 

'Somehow the intersection of all of those are part of me, and it’s important to have all of those within me and as me, as opposed to being like, that’s some external thing, this is the real thing.'
