His Secret Conversion Is A Big Deal

[BlindGossip] With so many mixed marriages in Hollywood, you might think that people of different religions marrying would not be such a big deal. Well, it is to this future bride. Her faith is so important to her that her fiancé is secretly converting to her religion.  The demands of the conversion are quite rigorous. In addition to disciplined studies and participation in various ceremonies, he has also scheduled a very specific physical transformation to comply with the traditions of his new religion. While his training has certainly conditioned his body to handle any physical challenge, this is one procedure for which he can’t train. The two will be married after his conversion is complete, which should be before the end of the year.

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied. She’s Jewish, and holds dual US / Israel citizenship.

    Which athlete is dating someone of the Jewish faith? The circumcision is going to suck…

  • msp96302

    Portman and Millipied. Sounds painful, Ben!

  • Angel

    I have no idea who this could be, but the religion must be judaism and the physical transformation a circumcision.

  • dee123

    Uh oh! sounds like some poor soul is becoming a Scientologist.

  • becky12

    Natalie Portman?

  • Chocadoodledoo

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Whatever! Circumcision, cause she’s Jewish!

  • insider1970

    I think it’s about Kim Kardashian and fiance (who is basketball player) Kris Humphries. Kim is an Armenian Christian Orthodox and maybe Kris has to converse to an Orthodox too to marry her. Although I can’t understand what physical transformation is needed for that. Maybe staying away from sex till marriage? Just a guess.

  • fullofwhat

    Natalie Portman…

  • AlliCat

    Someone’s getting snipped!

    Portman and Millipied. Oy.

  • SheilaK

    What? The way I read this, this guy has to be circumcised first? That must be true love whoever it is.

  • sinamin

    Circumcision for Judaism?

  • smd1004p

    well we know someone is converting to judaism…and getting circumcised…but who?

  • Rafael

    Soooo…. she is making him get circumcised? What if they break up later down the line? He will regret it. He can’t just.. take it back.

    Personally, I think circumcision is deplorable. But, at least he is an adult and can make up his own mind. An infant has no say in the matter.

    But, lets have a few moments of silence for his lost foreskin………….. :(

  • TheOtherIan

    Ok, he’s converting to Judaism, which requires alot of study and it sounds like he’s currently uncircumcised but will be soon as part of his conversion. Many people change faiths, although doing so to make a future spouse happy may not be the right reason. I hope it is a genuine conversion that has grown out of his admiration of her commitment to her faith and that it fulfills him spiritually. I think if he’s doing for the wrong reasons that will be sussed out during the conversion process. If she’s demanding he convert just to continue the relationship that will come out and hopefully she’ll learn that one can’t make demands like that, and it wouldn’t be a genuine conversion anyway. But, if he’s prepared to be circumcised, he is probably the real deal. Good for him.

    • PandoraWolf

      I just hope whomever it is isn’t going through all of this just to ENSURE he gets married to her so he can end up with her money later once a divorce happens. Some guys might figure what they lose in a circumcision might not be worth the $$$$$ from the marriage.
      Which would be pretty sick.

  • Furfle

    It sounds like he is converting to Judaism.

  • Lindsay Bluth

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied – but why secret? :-(

  • azura

    Benjamin Millepied to marry Natalie Portman
    physical transformation = circumcision

  • elle

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied.

  • QueenCeleste

    I don’t know who this is, but I assume the physical transformation is circumcision, so I guess the bride is Jewish? Ouch…

  • cheefskiver

    Could this be Natalie Portman and her man.

  • jackballjonez

    Kim K is having her fiance convert to Judaism. and for this he must be circumcised.

  • question

    circumcision?
    This doesn’t sound like that big of a deal.

  • J Rock

    What Scientologist is engaged?

  • GooglyMoogly

    Natalie Portman and her Centipede?

  • Sterling

    I have no clue who this could be, but maybe the bride is a scientologist.

  • Lassie

    Obviously this man is going to be circumsized and convert to Judaism. Most actors seem to be Jewish, but which actress truly practices her faith, is not a Jew in name only?

  • GeeGee

    I can only think of two possibilities offhand. Natalie Portman & Benjamin Millipied, or maybe Lisa Bonet & Jason Momoa.

  • Minerva

    I have no idea..but my advice to the guy? RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!

  • Aceticle

    It sounds like they’re referring to circumcision. Is there a Muslim or Jewish female celeb who’s getting married soon?

    The rest of it sounds like Scientology, with the ceremonies and other kooky stuff.

  • waz101

    Natalie Portman & Benjamin Millepied

  • redstilettos

    Is the guy converting to Judaism? If he is getting circumcised, that’s something you can’t train for and it’s definitely a physical transformation.

  • Keis

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied?

  • pumpkin

    My guess is Nicole Sherzinger (as far as I can tell, she is Jewish) who is engaged to Lewis Hamilton.

    Lewis Hamilton is a Formula 1 driver. He’s Catholic (according to wiki) and from England, making is more likely he is (ahem) uncut,

    Both the bride and groom are mixed race.

  • lh8990

    Obviously a circumcision…which famous Jewish woman is engaged?

  • Tru Tru2

    hmmm, not sure who but it soulds like someone is getting circumsized???

    maybe my mind is in the gutter this morning, LOL–shrugs

  • Lorelei927

    Natalie Portman & Benjamin Millepied will be getting circumcised.

  • Ralphie

    Hmm… a Jewish woman, as the conversion being alluded to sounds like circumcision? Also sounds like the man is an athlete.

    I got no guess right now.

  • kc from tx

    I have no idea, but the bride must be Jewish. The convert will have to go through a ritual circumcision, even if he is already circumcised. I had a colleague that had to have that done, it was a symbolic ‘cutting’ of his manhood. If one were not already, then that would be a bit of an ordeal beyond the standard briss.

  • tonyc1

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millipied.

  • KWDragon

    Seems like they fit a lot of blinds lately, but Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millipied? He is certainly fit, and she has been vocal about her adherence to the Jewish faith. Still, I wonder about how this will go.

  • ronnieo

    Is Humphries getting snipped?

  • malkatz

    I’m thinking the physical transformation is a circumcision, which makes me believe this is a European man and a Jewish girl… most American males- Jewish or not- are circumcised a little after birth.

    Another Jewish transformation would be tattoo removal.

  • MzDb

    Natalie Portman and what’s his name Benjamin. He has to get circumcised…

  • Thrillckr

    Natalie Portman? She’s Jewish and custom dictates circumcision.

  • d33d33

    natalie portman and Benjamin Millepied

  • wee niknak

    paul mccartney and nancy shevell, im sure shes jewish

    • wee niknak

      plus that pic looks like a Beatles type of picture

    • PandoraWolf

      He didn’t convert with his first marriage to Linda; maybe that is why this is secret? Maybe he thinks some people will have issue with his conversion for her, when he didn’t do it for Linda? This might be a better guess than Portman-Millepied, since if everyone is guessing it, how ‘secret’ could it be?

  • Eryn

    How about someone marrying a Jewish woman? So he has to become circumcised, right? Natalie Portman is Jewish and she quoted something about really wanting to raise her children Jewish and that it was really important to her. She’s engaged to Benjamin Millepied.

  • kinibug

    So,I’m assuming the guy will convert to Judaism or Islam with the physical challenge being a circumcision?I’m going to go with Judaism as I can’t think of any Muslim females.Stumped on who it is though.

  • plum

    who is engaged?

  • Tallie

    Natalie Portman’s fiance

  • boredinsuburbia

    I realise that other blinds sugges that as a couple they aren’t particularly working. However I’m going to guess Portman/Millepied with the physical transformation being circumcision and his training refrring to his dancing. (I have no idea of his religion but I’m guessing its not Judaism or Islam and thus like most Europeans he isn’t circumcised)

  • emily36

    Is it a Brit becoming jewish? That may entail a circumcision. Yikes!

  • Greta

    Is someone getting circumcised? :)

  • melba

    I’m thinking this is Portman/Millepied. Her religion is very important to her, and converting to Judaism is no joke. Plus, if he’s non-Jewish and European, he may be needing a little visit with a Mohel. I have a guy who claims to have a very gentle hand if he’s worried!

  • SouthJerseyGirl

    Sounds like he’s going to be undergoing a circumcision. Can’t really think of a Jewish actress that’s so religious other than Mayim Bialyk and she’s already married.

  • tulseytown

    Well, this is definitely converting to Judaism. He’s gotta get circumsized in addition to all the actual studying, tests, and Mitzvah. Probably Natalie Portman’s guy.

  • GoesInCircles

    Well, obviously it’s someone who is going to convert to Judaism and must get circumcised…but why the big secret? Who are some engaged Jewish actresses?

  • mjl2848

    Though I was convinced she was going to get rid of him right after the baby was born, I’m going to say Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied for this one.

  • Katie

    I’m gonna go with Natalie Portman & Benjamin Milliped or whatever his name is.

    The religion being Judaism, procedure being circumcision. Ow. Ow that just hurts to think about.

  • trewhitt

    Natalie Portman and her baby daddy. OUCH to the peen!

  • wonderone

    I’m thinkin’ this has got to be Natalie Portman and her baby daddy. She is very proud of her Jewish faith, and he probably has to have a circumcision to comply with Hebrew laws. Ouch–now that’s love!!!

  • Iwonder

    ok, definitely a conversion to judaism, the physical transformation being circumcision.

    Apart from that I have absolutely no idea who this could be.

  • Antaeus

    Benjamin, don’t do it! Stay as God made you—intact!

  • onlyme

    Ricki Lake? She just announced her engagement and she was raised Jewish. She may have changed to a born-again Christian, so I’m not sure this is her?

  • jinx

    Sounds like he is getting circumcised, so that makes the bride Jewish. Has to be Portman and Millepied.

  • BrightStar

    Natalie and Benjamin.

  • ZigZagZoey

    Is someone about to get a circumcision?? OW! No, you can’t train for that! I hope she’s worth it!
    OR is it some weird Scientology thing?

  • apartment8

    Natalie portman and whatshisname? I know she is Jewish and this sounds like someone converting to Judaism.?

  • pat362

    I guess the man is getting a circumcision so that means that the star is probably Muslim or Jewish.
    Now who’s either Jewish or Muslim, getting married in the near futur and a devout practioner of her religion? I hope for his sake that she practices her faith because what he’s about to do for her is about as high as any man will ever go for a woman.

  • pantheon9000

    Sounds like circumcision maybe? Not sure on who the celebs are tho.

  • pscheck2

    My first thought was his conversion to Judaism (circumcision), but this sounds like a religion that requires a more rigorous conformity to its tenets. Far eastern or new world cult? In any event, whoever this dude is, he certainly had the opportunity to decline this conversion, so it must be assumed he is comfortable with this decision. My best to both of them.

  • jokerjim65

    Has to be Judaism, being a circumcision.
    No clue who the people could be though.

  • Deco

    First time posting..This seems pretty simple to me..I don’t know how ‘Big’ a deal it is, but I’m fairly certain it won’t be as big after a circumcision. That’s what Natalie Portman’s fiance will need to undergo if he is converting to Judaism.

  • DutchOven

    I’m thinking Natalie Portman?

    She’s Jewish and I have heard that her parents are very strict in the religion as well. Perhaps the physical conversion means circumcision?

    Physical challenge = rigorous ballet training?

    Also, it looks like it might be pretty rigorous to convert:http://www.convertingtojudaism.com/Requirements.htm

  • lahteb

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millipied — if they actually are getting married

    She’s Jewish, and he’s French, which means he is likely uncut.

  • apple martini

    Not sure exactly who it is, I’ll think about it and come back.
    But we’re looking at a guy who’s converting to Judaism and undergoing an adult circumcision. Book it.

    • apple martini

      It could also be someone converting to Islam, I suppose, but given the, um, industry, I’m still saying Judaism.

    • apple martini

      OK, what about Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa? Her mother is Jewish, and he’s definitely had to do a ton of conditioning and body-building for his roles lately (Khal Drogo, Conan). He was also born in Hawaii; they might be a little less stringent about circumcision there. I know they already have two kids together, but he popped into my head when the blind mentioned lots of physical conditioning.

    • apple martini

      Or I suppose it could be Natalie Portman and Millipied (trained as a dancer). But I’m not sure she’s terribly religious, and considering that their whole situation is supposed to be a sham, I’m not convinced he’d undergo something so … permanent?

  • Polaristbh

    I am going to guess Natalie Portman and her fiance!

  • nonynony

    Natalie Portman & Benjamin Milipied

  • Marissa

    I’ll go with Portman/Millepied, the procedure being circumcision.

  • stolidog

    duh, portman and her ballerina, and he’s got to get snipped. I’ll believe this when I see it.

  • fotobandi

    Well, looks like someone is in for a little nip, and not tuck, cause a circ*mscision is on the way. Now: who? Beats me. Natalie Portman?

  • istillhavesarcasm

    Natalie Portman and Millipied — specific physical transformation refers to circumcision.

  • Cuddlebutt

    Hmmm… Me thinks someone is converting to Judaism.

  • Megley

    Someone who needs a circumcision?

  • Rowena

    So I’m guessing this is talking about someone getting circumcised? So let’s see– most American born males in their 20/30s are cut, so this would either be a European or someone with really nice parents.

    So any foreign born actors dating Jewish ladies? Actually, it doesn’t say if he’s an actor or what… Hmmmm

    • Rowena

      Oh man! Its Lisa Bonet and Jason Mamoa! Her mom is Jewish, so maybe she’s practicing now?

      • apple martini

        That’s actually who I thought it was at first. Although Millipied was apparently born in France, so he wouldn’t have been circumcised at birth, either.

  • Warholette

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied. She is Jewish, so he is converting to Judaism. And while his trained body (all the dancing) can handle everything, sure circumcision is something no one can have trained for…

  • Finlandia

    So I’m guessing his bride is Jewish and he’s getting circ’ed? The only guess I have is Natalie Portman/Benjamin ?? The training could be his dancing and she is certainly Jewish.

    Other than that, I have nothing.

  • lovethissite

    I have no idea who this is but I am guessing the “procedure for which he can not train” is a circumcision??

  • Mooky

    So Natalie is making him get a ritual trim, eh?

  • luckysiu

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied? She’s Jewish and I am not sure if he is so I’m guessing that he is uncircumcised? Most European men are in my experience.

  • aeduko

    Not sure who, but it sure makes it sound like the religion is Judaism and he’ll be circumcised.

  • PandoraWolf

    Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied? Not sure what religion he is (or if they will ever get to the altar).

  • nywizard08

    Must be a Jewish conversion, since its likely the guy is getting a circumcision..but it doesnt give any hints otherwise

  • heiglman

    This is very obviously a reference to Natalie Portman and her boyfriend.
