Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied stepped out together without their wedding rings for a somber walk in Paris on Monday.
The typically private pair, who reportedly split last month, joined their son Aleph, 12, and daughter, Amalia, 6, on their morning commute to school.
Upon arrival, the parents of two whipped out their phones to seemingly take an obligatory first day of school photo.
The casually dressed couple then made their way back to their Parisian apartment, which they seem to still be sharing despite their rumored separation.
Although Portman, 42, and Millepied, 46, walked side by side, they appeared noticeably tense once alone.
Despite putting on a united front, the “Thor” actress and the French dancer both ditched their wedding rings.
Portman also left her 4-carat Jamie Wolf-designed ring at home the following day while attending the IAA Conference on Affordable Sustainable Mobility in Munich, Germany.
The “Black Swan” star put her ringless finger on full display while giving a speech in a pink checkered Chanel skirt set, while her estranged husband seemingly remained in Paris.

The outlet included photos of Étienne allegedly meeting up with Millepied outside his office.
Portman had already discovered her husband’s alleged dalliance before it made headlines, sources told Page Six at the time.
“They have not split and are trying to work things out. Ben is doing everything he can to get Natalie to forgive him. He loves her and their family,” one insider told us.
Last month, Portman was spotted without her husband — and wedding ring — on their 11th wedding anniversary.
Just a few days later, sources told Us Weekly that the pair had finally decided to throw in the towel.
“After news of his affair came out, they’ve been trying to work on their marriage but are currently on the outs,” a source told the outlet.
Despite recent photos together, insiders insisted that the pair “are not back together” but rather trying to maintain a healthy family dynamic.
“They’re spending time together co-parenting,” a source told the outlet Wednesday. “Ben is still wanting a reconciliation, but Natalie is still skeptical. While she hasn’t ruled it out, it’s not something she wants at the moment.”
Portman and Millepied, a classically trained dancer, met while working together on “Black Swan.”
