Natalie Portman celebrated turning 43 on social media Sunday with photoset of her inner circle of friends she credited for uplifting her, about four months after she finalized her split from Benjamin Millepied after an 11-year marriage.

‘This year, on my birthday, I want to celebrate my gratitude for my friends who lift me up again and again,’ the Academy Award-winning Black Swan actress captioned the post.

The Jerusalem, Israel-born actress was seen in a slideshow of nine images posed alongside various friends, who she did not identify via tagging into the posts on the social media site.

The May December actress was pictured in a variety of settings with her friends in the montage of images, which appeared to be taken in spots from all over the world. 

Backgrounds included in the montage included a canyon; in front of cherry blossom trees; in a field; in a nightclub; and in front of a waterfront.

The insider noted that Portman ‘is coming out of a really tough and painful year but she’s come out the other side of it stronger and is finding joy in her family, friends and work.’

The insider told the outlet that Portman’s ‘biggest priority has been ensuring a smooth transition for her children’ amid the divorce.

‘She and Ben really love their kids and are equally focused on being the best co-parents they can be,’ said the source. ‘Nothing is more important.’

Portman was seen looking cozy in a discussion with Irish actor Paul Mescal, 28, in London in late May, though insiders told TMZ that the two were just friends.
