Natalie Portman’s marriage to Benjamin Millepied is reportedly struggling amid his alleged affair and there’s now a resurgence in interest in their 2012 wedding in Big Sur, California. Their A-list ceremony included celebrities Macaulay Culkin and Diane Sawyer, but it also had two Trump family members on the invite list who might raise eyebrows in 2023.

Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, were both in attendance at the bluff-side wedding. The guest list has many people wondering how that friendship happened in the first place. It turns out that Kushner and Portman were longtime friends after they attended Harvard University together and were both a part of the Class of 2003. With both former classmates residing in New York City after college, they maintained a warm friendship years later.

When it came time for Kushner to marry Trump, Portman made the cut and celebrated with the couple at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey in 2009. When it was Portman’s turn to walk down the aisle, she happily extended the duo a reciprocal invitation. But four short years later, Donald Trump’s 2016 run for president, and Ivanka and Kushner’s support, soured their friendship.

Portman confirmed the rift in 2018 on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where she blasted Kushner and called him a “supervillain.” She also noted that Donald Trump’s son-in-law had lost many friends because of his political association, which also established the long-held rumor that Ivanka and Kushner were shunned by their New York City social circle — and yep, Portman was a part of that.
