Darren Aronofsky Defends Natalie Portman's "Black Swan" Dancing

Posted: March 29th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Darren Aronofsky Defends Natalie PortmanSubmit Comment
Natalie Portman's dancing double in "Black Swan" recently stated that out of all the dancing that was in the movie, 5% was performed by Portman. Director Darren Aronofsky has now come forward in Portman's defense.

"Here is the reality. I had my editor count shots. There are 139 dance shots in the film. 111 are Natalie Portman untouched. 28 are her dance double Sarah Lane," said Aronofsky. "If you do the math that's 80% Natalie Portman. What about duration? The shots that feature the double are wide shots and rarely play for longer than one second. There are two complicated longer dance sequences that we used face replacement. Even so, if we were judging by time, over 90% would be Natalie Portman."

He also wanted to correct a rumor that Portman never learned to dance in pointe shoes. "If you look at the final shot of the opening prologue, which lasts 85 seconds, and was danced completely by Natalie, she exits the scene on pointe," the helmer stated. "That is completely her without any digital magic."

Really?

There are people out there who actually thought Natalie Portman performed ballet for this movie?

You people are fried.
It's a MOVIE.

I have some bad news which may come as a complete shock to many... Jennifer Beals didn't do any of the dancing in FLASHDANCE... (she probably didn't do any of her own welding either).

Who cares if she can't dance (or cook). Talented actress with a nice ass. And she probably brings home some good money.

C'mon people, she deserved her Oscar. It was probably the best performance of the year, male or female. Also one of the best performances I've seen in a while..

.. And I thought "Black Swan" was the best film of the year. After "Toy Story 3" that is..
