To recap, Natalie Portman’s body double dancer Sarah Lane said she danced most of the full body dance shots in Black Swan. Both Benjamin Millepied and Darren Aronofsky said Natalie did 85% of all the dancing. Aronofsky even offered hard numbers. And yet not a single f*ck was given. That said, the controversy still hasn’t died. In fact, just recently, Natalie Portman commented on it. Ugh. Please stop. No one cares who danced what.
“You know, I, it’s it’s….um…I know what went on. We, we had an amazing experience making the movie and I don’t want to tarnish it by entering into nastiness, because it’s such a positive thing what we get to do. We get to create things. I feel so lucky to be part of that, and um, I’m so proud of everyone’s work on that movie and my experience. And I’ll have that forever. And and and and and it’s important for me to remember that no matter what nastiness is going around.” [Dlisted via E!]
In Natalie’s defense, at least she chose to scoot around it and not ruffle any feathers. If I was Natalie, I’d be offended that everyone cared so much about how much someone danced for me. I’d shout at them, “Didn’t you see me make out with Mila Kunis?!” Actually, I’d say that regardless of whether or not I’m Natalie because… MY GOD MAN, DID YOU SEE NATALIE MAKE OUT WITH MILA KUNIS?! Guys. I think we’re missing the big picture here.
