Natalie Portman Body Double Controversy
Freshly minted Best Actress Academy Award winner Natalie Portman is facing a bit of controversy from her role in Black Swan. Apparently, Portman, who played the slightly unstable dancer Nina in the film, used a body double for most of the complicated ballet scenes. American Ballet Theatre dancer Sarah Lane says that Portman only did about 5% of the dancing scenes and “I do want people to know that you cannot absolutely become a professional ballet dancer in a year and a half no matter how hard you work. I’ve been doing this for 22 years.” Click the image to enlarge.
If this is in fact true, do you think Natalie still deserves her Best Actress Oscar?
