Dance star MOBY left legions of “nerds” fuming – when he began dating actress NATALIE PORTMAN.
The Go hitmaker, real name Richard Melville Hall, insists there are benefits to being a celebrity nerd – until you start dating geek royalty.
He tells the new issue of Details magazine, “I guess in some people’s eyes,
(nerds) might be mildly sexy – and, as a nerd, I’m certainly happy to enjoy some of the effects of that.
“But, as far as the very brief affair that I had with Natalie, it’s made me a target of a lot of nerd wrath.
