Injecting a hint of glamour into her dressed-down look, the screen star boosted her frame in a pair of polka dot print peep-toe wedges. 

The Thor actress scraped her brunette tresses into a tousled bun and complemented her radiant complexion with light strokes of foundation and satin red lipstick.

Meanwhile, French choreographer Benjamin, 42, opted for comfort in a simple black jumper, indigo jeans and a two-tone baseball cap.

Earlier in the week, Natalie revealed she refuses to play the role of a mum as it simply feels ‘weird’ to be a parent to another child in her latest interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK.

In the candid discussion, the mother-of-two also said claimed she’s constantly fighting against being judged for her looks as a woman. 

The Oscar-winning actress told the publication: ‘It just feel weird if I’m at work pretending to be a mom to some kid who’s not my kid. So I’ve been trying out wild experiences like being an astronaut or a pop star.

‘As a woman, you are constantly fighting against only being valued for your looks, because it becomes a very tenuous thing, to be defined by the gaze of others, the opinion of others. 

‘And beauty is, by definition, ephemeral, it’s a thing that that you can’t trap in time, it’s a butterfly, it lives for a second. So to make a lifetime worthwhile and have meaning cannot rest on beauty.’

Natalie, who made her film debut in The Professional in 1994, has since gone on to play the iconic role of the First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in Jackie and win an Oscar for her captivating performance in Black Swan.
