Natalie Portman considering ending maternity leave

Friday August 26, 2011

Natalie Portman has reportedly been in talks to star in her first film since the birth of her son Aleph in June.

A movie industry website says the 30-year-old actress has been considering the lead role in independent drama Adaline.

The film, co-starring Angela Lansbury, tells the story of a woman who was born at the turn of the 20th century and can't grow a day older after being in an accident.

But she meets a man and falls in love and must decide if he is worth giving up her mortality for.

Natalie won an Oscar earlier this year for her performance in Black Swan, the film where she met her choreographer fiancé Benjamin Millepied (pictured).

A representative for the producers told movie blog that talks did take place with Natalie, but they were "informal".
