\Natalie Portman’s Pregnancy Means No THE DARK KNIGHT RISES For Her!
Apologies for the lack of updates recently but with all the Christmas family activities to attend, the copious amount of food and drink this season annually brings that leaves my head in no place to type morning, noon or night and the fact Hollywood is in hibernation for a week, I’m sure you can all forgive me.
