It was business as usual for Natalie Portman on Thursday after Moby finally issued a public apology.
Hopefully, things can now go back to normal for the 37-year-old actress who has been dragged into a dispute with Moby, 53, over claims that they dated when she was 20 and he was 33.
On Wednesday night, Moby cancelled future promotion of the book in which he published the claims and apologised for acting inconsiderately and disrespectfully.
The next day, Natalie was seen hitting the hair salon in West Hollywood with a hot coffee.
She dressed casually for the solo outing, in the same week that her husband Benjamin Millepied appeared to step up to support her.
Its been a confusing few days for the Black Swan star, who publicly disputed claims she ever dated Moby around 20 years ago.
As Natalie remembers it, she and Moby hung out a handful of times because she was a fan of his music but when she realised he was interested in a way that felt inappropriate she stopped seeing him.
Natalie told Harpers Bazaar: I was surprised to hear that he characterised the very short time that I knew him as dating.
My recollection is a much older man being creepy with me when I just had graduated high school.
Moby published his version of events in the book When It Fell Apart, and defiantly stood by it when Natalie tried to deny they dated.
In the book, Moby writes: I was a bald binge drinker and Natalie Portman was a beautiful movie star. But here she was in my dressing room, flirting with me.
He then claimed that he tried to be Natalies boyfriend for a few weeks but it hadnt worked out.
The Porcelain singer continued: I thought that I was going to have to tell her that my panic was too egregious for me to be in a real relationship, but one night on the phone she informed me that shed met somebody else.
I was relieved that Id never have to tell her how damaged I was.
Many point out that Mobys facts do seem to be slightly off since Natalie would have actually been 18 in 1999, not 20 years old.
On Wednesday, he called out all future appearances for the foreseeable future and decided not to Read More – Source
007 film must treat Bond girls properly, says Waller-Bridge

Fast cars, martinis and Bond girls are core parts of the formula for 007 films, but one of those elements is set for a change in the latest adventure.
Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is working on the script for the 25th Bond film, is on a mission to make sure the movie will "treat women properly" – even if the spy does not.
Ahead of the release of the as-yet-untitled film, Waller-Bridge told Deadline: "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not (the Bond franchise) is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.
"I think that's b*******. I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.
"It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly.
"He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to this character."
Waller-Bridge says she intends to ensure the female characters, including those played by Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas, feel "like real people ".

She added: "I just want to make sure that when they get those pages through, that Lashana, Lea and Ana open them and go, 'I can't wait to do that'.
Sir Elton hits out at Russia for ‘cruel’ Rocketman censorship

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic Rocketman.
The critically acclaimed film charts the British singer's rise to fame, and its scenes of kissing and sex between men, as well as drug use, contributed to it earning a 15 certificate in the UK.
But in a bid to play down the sexuality of Sir Elton, played by actor Taron Egerton, for a conservative Russian audience, an estimated five minutes of footage was reportedly removed ahead of its debut in Moscow.
The Moscow Times quoted a Russian film critic who had seen the film at its world premiere in Cannes on 16 May as saying "all scenes with kissing, sex and oral sex between men have been cut", as well as a photo displayed during the end credits featuring Sir Elton and his husband David Furnish.
Sir Elton, 72, a prominent gay rights campaigner, released a joint statement with the makers of the film to accuse censors of being "cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people".
"We reject in the strongest possible terms the decision to pander to local laws and censor Rocketman for the Russian market, a move we were unaware of until today," they said.
"That the local distributor has edited out certain scenes, denying the audience the opportunity to see the film as it was intended, is a sad reflection of the divided world we still live in and how it can still be so cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people.
