More Double Trouble For Natalie Portman
Ever since the movie hit theaters, she's sworn that she's to credit with most of the legwork in “Black Swan". And with a her latest interview having just aired, it doesn't look like Sarah Lane is ready to give up her fight just yet.
The American Ballet Theatre star, who has alleged that filmmakers lied about the extent of Natalie Portman's dancing abilities in the film, took to ABC's "20/20" Friday (April 15) to further her claim, telling, "Full body shots with actual dancing is me. That's why they hired me. 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."
"Black Swan" editor Andy Weisblum shot back, telling the show that Miss Lane is simply overstating her responsibilities, as he said, "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."
Adding to Portman's double trouble woes is an unconfirmed report by Daily Mail that Caroline Davis, a film student, has come forth to reveal that she was paid to be the actress' stand-in for the Belfast cold water dive in "Your Highness."
