Posted Thursday January 24, 2013 1:33 PM GMT

They’ve become tired of the hustle and bustle of Hollywood, and now Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied are setting their sights on the City of Lights.

Millepied just signed on with the Paris Opera Ballet as the new director of dance, effective September 2014, so they’ll be packing up their son Aleph and headed to France.

In a recent interview, Benjamin explained that he’s thrilled to work with Stephane Lissner, who will become the new artistic director.

"I was surprised, but I felt very quickly that the artistic dialogue between us was an exciting one. After a while I did feel there was a really good chance I might get the position. Which made my head spin."
