Actors are known to get inspired from different scripts and characters that they are required to do.

The most recent incident involves Natalie Portman's husband, Benjamin Millepied, who's expressed his inclination toward reverting to a new religion. He has expressed his extreme admiration and desire toward Judaism and so seems to be in the process of converting his belief system.

Currently, the family consisting of Benjamin, Natalie and Aleph (son) are in Israel for the coming period of three months. The actress has been reportedly be busy in putting together her cast and crew for her directorial project "A Tale of Love and Darkness."  The debut revolves around the story of the memoirs of Amos Oz, an Israeli author. Amos Oz advocated a solution to the Israeli - Palestinian crisis that has been quite in the limelight recently.

Between all the project work, Portman's husband is busy exploring new avenues of Judaism as a religion. The background of Portman is geographically rooted in Jerusalem, and she then migrated in an early age to the US. Her culture and lifestyle evolved rapidly, changing her into who she is today, so she holds no grudge or influence on her husband's conversion. Portman understands the unique needs of being able to choose the religion that one wants to follow and is said to be more understanding since her baby's birth and motherhood.

As per ABC News, following the future plans that await this couple, news has it that their new home is going to be in the city of love and art, Paris. The family seems to be happy and excited to be moving to the French capital and look forward to the time that they would be spending there. To aid in the time and requirements of living in Paris, Portman has been busy taking French lessons in order to polish her linguistic skills.

The Oscar winner also has a connection with the city, as the title Director of Dance has been awarded by the Paris Opera Ballet to the celebrity, giving her all the more reason to look forward and move to a place that already accredits her art and passion.
