Amidst accusations that most of Natalie Portman’s dancing in Black Swan was a dancing double, Sarah Lane, co-star Mila Kunis is coming to the defense of the Oscar winner.
In response to a comment Sarah made to Entertainment Weekly that she performed 95 percent of Natalie’s full-body dance shots, Mila had a thing or two to say about it. “Natalie danced her a— off,” she tells EW. “I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from [the praise] Natalie deserved and got.”
Plus, Mila adds that Natalie’s been honest about her capabilities as a ballerina. “She’ll tell you [that], no, she was not on pointe when she did a fouette [turn]. No one’s going to deny that. But she did do every once of every one of her dances.” Pointing out that Sara was more like “a safety net,” Mila mentions she had a dancing double as a safety net, too. “We all did,” she notes. “No one ever denied it.”
