Moby Talks About His Relationship With Natalie Portman



Moby is promoting his new memoir, and an excerpt was published in Entertainment Weekly a banned source. What is he writing about? His romance with Natalie Portman. The pair dated for a while in the... 90s? Early 2000s? Whatever. They met backstage at his concert when she was 20 and he was 36.

There is a long excerpt at the source, but here is a small bite:



I escorted Natalie backstage and got her a bottle of water. I drank a beer, while my band and crew stood around the dressing room, quiet and uncomfortable. We’d never had a movie star backstage before, and none of us knew what to say or do.

“So, did you enjoy the show?” I asked Natalie.

“I loved it!” she said. She was wearing jeans and a white T-shirt; her dark-brown hair was pulled back in a ponytail. “The songs from Play were so great.” Natalie sat on the black leather couch and smiled at me. My heart stuttered.

I was nervous, so I made small talk. “We’re going to New York in a few days,” I said. “For the VMAs.”

She smiled again and looked straight into my eyes. “I’ll be in New York too. Can we meet up?”

This was confusing. I was a bald binge drinker who lived in an apartment that smelled like mildew and old bricks, and Natalie Portman was a beautiful movie star. But here she was in my dressing room, flirting with me.

“Yeah, let’s meet up in New York,” I said, trying to emanate a degree of confidence that I had never in my entire life actually felt.

“Well, I should go,” she said. “Can you walk me to my car?”


Would you date a famous musician you have a crush on?
