There are some certain roles that make famous actors incredible popular. Black Swan is the movie that has made Natalie Portman a worldwide appreciated star. Actually, to Natalie Portman and Black Swan there was a situation controversy associated, but the actress has definitely had a great year in 2011. Well, in 2011, Natalie Portman got engaged, announced her pregnancy and received an Oscar for her role in Black Swan. Black Swan was released in 2010 and the movie is for sure the most successful one in which Natalie has starred. Well, as imagined, a Natalie Portman scandal was linked to her winning the Oscar for her performance in the movie. Some celebrities just seem to not be able to stay away from scandals, but this one broke without Natalie having a guilt. Black Swan went to be a huge success and the movie made more than $310 million at the box office.
Natalie Portman received the best reviews for her performance and we can surely say the same thing about Mila Kunis, who starred alongside Natalie, the Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis sex scene being highly appreciated by many fans. Well, soon after Natalie Portman got nominated in Best Actress category for the Oscars, the scandal broke, as a ballet dancer claimed that Natalie was not the one who performed the scenes on the movie, dancing scenes for which she was mostly appreciated, as the professional dancer did them all, while Natalie only performed during the most simple dancing routines. The woman, Sarah Lane, also claimed that only about 5 percent of the dancing scenes were filmed by Natalie Portman, while the rest was all her. And in fact, this was the aspect most appreciated when it comes to Natalie Portman’s Black Swan role, and the one that brought her the Oscar. Natalie declared that she took a year off to prepare for the movie, time in which she trained to be able to dance the way she did. Natalie had been doing ballet also as a child, so getting back into shape was all she needed. However, Sarah Lane claimed that Natalie could not dance the way we all see her in the movie only after a year of practice, as for professional dancers it takes more than 20 years of hard work to be able to perform perfectly during so complicated dance routines.
Well, Natalie Portman never claimed that she made herself all the complicated dancing scenes that we see in the movie and she actually admitted to have had a double, thing which really is a normal one. Still, the scandal was huge at the time of The Oscars, but despite all that, Natalie Portman deserved the title of Best Actress with her Black Swan role. And Natalie Portman Black Swan performance also helped the actress find love, as she now has a child with Benjamin Millepied, who she met while working at the movie.
