Mila Defends Co-Star Natalie Portman’s ‘Black Swan’ Dancing


Kunis disputes statements made by Portman’s body double that the actress did only 5% of the dancing featured in the movie.

Add Mila Kunis to the list of those who have come to the defense of her Black Swan co-star Natalie Portman in the wake of accusations that her body double did most of the dancing in the movie.

“Of the full body shots, I would say 5% are Natalie,” American Ballet Theater dancer Sarah Lane recently said. “All the other shots are me.”

On Monday, Kunis joined the movie’s director, Darren Aronofsky, and Portman’s fiance, Benjamin Millepied, in defending the actress, who won an Oscar for her role. Fox Searchlight, the studio behind Black Swan, also has insisted that Portman did most of the dancing in the movie.

“Natalie danced her a– off,” Kunis told Entertainment Weekly. “I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from [the praise] Natalie deserved and got.”

Kunis also said Portman has admitted that her techniques were far from perfect.

“She’ll tell you, no, she was not on pointe when she did a fouette [turn],” Kunis said. “No one’s going to deny that. But she did do every ounce of every one of her dances. [Lane] wasn’t used for everything. It was more like a safety net. If Nat wasn’t able to do something, you’d have a safety net. The same thing that I had — I had a double as a safety net. We all did. No one ever denied it.”

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Lane said via email that she earned $6,000 for just over six weeks of work on the movie, which has grossed $281.6 million at the worldwide box office so far.

Black Swan out on DVD and Blu-ray March 29th

Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced that Black Swan will come to DVD and Blu-ray on March 29, 2011.

“Black Swan” follows the story of Nina (Natalie Portman), a ballerina in the New York City Ballet trying to make it to the top. When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Winona Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), also impresses Leroy and becomes Nina´s competition. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly with her innocence and grace, but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan with her fiery personality. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side with a recklessness that threatens to destroy her.
