London: Choreographer Benjamin Millepided never considered being a model until he was chosen as the face of Yves Saint Laurent`s new fragrance L`Homme Libre.

Millepided - who is engaged to Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman and is expecting their first child together - reveals he was surprised when asked to take part in the campaign, said a media report.

"It`s something I never really thought of. The positive thing about it, I think, is I`m a dancer and it`s not usually the sort of thing, it`s always actors or models," he said.
