On again, off again

Natalie Portman and Gael Garcia Bernal first dated for about a year back in 2003-04, and everytime they run into each other at a premiere or party, rumors fly that they are getting back together. Such rumors surfaced in February when Natalie and Gael were both at the Berlin Film Festival to promote V for Vendetta and The Science of Sleep. The two were said to have spent 'quality time' together during the festival. Though whatever constituted 'quality time' for Natalie and Gael in Berlin was never made public, I think the public got a clearer idea of it on Sunday night. At The Roundhouse in London, Natalie and Gael were flagrantly indulging in 'steamy' PDA while listening to Seu Jorge. Though I have no idea if Natalie and Gael are really getting back together or just doing that 'hooking up with your ex when there's no one better around' thing, I do hope they give it another shot. I can't even remember why they broke up, and now the only explanation I can find is that "the final straw was when Portman discovered her beau had opted to take his parents to the Cannes Film Festival this week instead of her." Um ok.

A quick look at Natalie Portman's dating history tells me that dumping Gael was the second dumbest thing she's ever done. Though there's been recent evidence that Natalie and Jake Gyllenhaal are more than just friends. I don't think they've ever been serious -- Jake prefers ugly girls like Kirsten Dunst. And Natalie is no stranger to less than Jake hot men, since she has actually been dating Nat Rothschild, a bland British billionaire. I think she only gave him a shot because he's Jewish. Besides, Natalie and Nathanial = Nat and Nat -- clearly a horrible idea!

Natalie seems to have had a bit of a dating slump (publicly at least) pre-Nat, because the last guy to whom she was linked was Zach Braff in 2004. Zach was only an acceptable boyfriend because Garden State was good and Scrubs is hilarious. Clearly Natalie values humor, because Zach is not particularly hot. However, he is a lot hotter than Moby, who Natalie dated back in 2000 (yes, this would be the #1 dumbest thing ever). Wasn't she also sort of underaged then too?

As for Gael, Natalie is probably the best girlfriend that he's had too, though his girlfriends all tend to be attractive. Gael was linked most recently to Argentine actress Dolores Fonzi. This summer, Natalie was in Buenos Aires to visit Gael, and the Argentine paparazzi did a great job capturing these photos of Natalie flipping out after being asked about Gael and Dolores. I guess I can't blame Natalie for being upset. If my hot, albeit short, ex hooked up with someone objectively hotter than the person I'm currently dating, I might be a little irritable too.

Despite the Argentine drama this summer, it appears as though Natalie and Gael still can't stay away from each other. I think it's because Natalie is so small that she's still shorter than Gael in heels, and Gael is pretty much perfect, aside from being short.

Hey he's not short where it counts:)
