We know, we know! It's hard to believe that Black Swan dancing drama continues…but alas, it does.
For those of you just tuning in, here's a brief recap…
Last month, Natalie Portman's Black Swan dancing double said that the actress only did 5% of the dancing, but Natalie refuted the claims, and got support from co-star Mila Kunis, the producers, and Darren Aronofsky himself.
Then, we saw a video of Natalie's dancing skillz from the early 90s, which led us to further believe that her Black Swan dancing was probs legit.
Now, despite everything, Portman's Black Swan dancing double Sarah Lane is standing her ground and saying that producers "asked her to be quiet about her role until after the Oscars."
Here's what she had to say about her role:
"Full body shots with actual dancing is me. That's why they hired me."
"He [one of the film's producers] asked if I would please not do any more interviews until after the Oscars because it was bad for Natalie's image. They were trying to create this image, this facade, really, that Natalie had done something extraordinary. Something that is pretty much impossible … to become a professional ballerina in a year and half."
Here's what Black Swan editor Andy Weisblum had to say in response:
"There are about 35 shots that are full body shots in the movie. Of those 35 shots, 12 are Natalie, and then the rest are Sarah. But over the overall film, Natalie did a lot more than that."
More from Lane:
"It really hurts for someone to say that they got a personal trainer and they became what I spent blood, sweat and tears doing every day, all my life, in just a year and a half."
As we've said before, we're sure that Sarah Lane is a wonderful dancer, but she needs to stop raining on Natalie's parade.
This argument was supposed to be over…it's beginning to seem more and more like Natalie's dancing double is just looking for attention.
Do U think Natalie Portman's Black Swan dancing double is just looking for attention? Or does she truly still believe Natalie only did 5% of the dancing in the film?
