"Black Swan" has become a professional and personal turning point for Natalie, who underwent rigorous training for her role as a driven ballerina with help from French-born dancer Benjamin Millepied. They began dating during filming, and the actress surprised everyone in December by announcing her engagement and impending bundle of joy, bubbling that she was "indescribably happy and feel very grateful to have this experience."

Natalie has been swimming to stay in shape, and admits she's now partial to roomy couture on the red carpet. "I just want to be in things that are comfortable now," she laughed to "Extra." "Loose!"
