Apparently you’re never too young for a little ballet: Natalie Portman and 6-month old son Aleph attended the premiere of Benjamin Millepied’s latest pieces at the Opera de Lyon in Lyon, France. The two came in “just after the curtain,” a theatergoer tells us, “and stood in the aisle by the back row.” Portman was holding her son and he was smiling and gazing at the stage. Afterward, the casually-dressed actress brought her son backstage to congratulate his father. – Peter Mikelbank
