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.

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."
