Natalie Portman Asked Cate Blanchett For Parenting Advice

Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman covers the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar and opens up about family life with husband Benjamin Millepied and their 4-year-old son Aleph.

On asking fellow actress and mom Cate Blanchett for parenting advice: “Very early on, I asked [Cate] about being a parent. I said, ‘How do you do it? You’re a mom. You’re the best at what you do.’ She said, ‘You just do. Stressing about it doesn’t help.’ ”

On working dads: “Most men I know are dealing with the same issues. They say they feel like if they work too hard they won’t have enough time with their families. Maybe those questions need to be asked of men, too. Maybe the men need better questions.”

On life in Paris: “It’s magical. But the cultures are different in ways you don’t even realize. And there’s stuff you don’t know you’ll miss until you’re away — like indoor gyms where kids can just run around and jump. They don’t have those there. [In Paris], if you’re running around on the playground chasing your kid and playing a game, people think you’re nuts.”
