Comments on: Natalie Portman: Black Swan, White Swan or No-Dancing Liar Swan? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/natalie-portman-white-swan-black-swan-or-no-dancing-liar-swan/ Movie Reviews & TV Show Reviews Wed, 22 Jan 2014 14:54:30 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.3.1 By: Bee http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/natalie-portman-white-swan-black-swan-or-no-dancing-liar-swan/#comment-108485 Bee Mon, 18 Apr 2011 01:08:00 +0000 http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=203870#comment-108485 The fact that she goes on lying about what her role was in the movie, is the annoying bit. Yes, if she came clean and did not publish a false statement, this wouldn't backfire. Natalie, you are a good actress, be happy with that, and do not attempt to glorify yourself at the expense of others.

And these people are fine with that. However the actor goes over the line when they personally claim credit for something amazing that their double actually did. If their stunt double does a back flip off of a 10 story building during an action scene, I think we can all agree that for the actor to claim "Man, wasn't I courageous jumping off that ten story building!?" would be outright wrong. No different with Black Swan. For Natalie and her producers to claim that most of the difficult work in the movie was her talent and skill from ballet training when in reality it was someone else with the actual training required to pull it off, is just not right. And then to parlay the falsehood to help you win the Oscar is just way over the line. Sure, body and stunt doubles are used all of the time with no credit given to them.

We shouldn't confuse them! The dancer did her work well, and we all appreciate this, but the Oscar should be given for acting not dancing! It's movie, not dance show! Hope, Sarah will realize that! In his interview, which I downloaded from http://www.torrentoff.com , Aranofski defended Portman, and I completely understand this situation. Perhaps, they should talk and come to an agreement!

I think is true that Hollywood actresses are self-absorbed fame whores. The body double and the ballet world wanted credit for the quality of dancing that appeared on screen thanks to a professional who trained over twenty years to do those moves. If you're only believable as a dancer when shot from the neck up, you're not doing 90% of the dancing. Give credit where credit is due and don't make it about the Oscars. THe Oscars are a total sham, but that is another story. I don’t think it is true that ballerinas are bitchy. I think is true that Hollywood actresses are self-absorbed fame whores.

They're engaged, not married. I totally agree but I’m pretty sure Natalie Portman is not (yet) married to Bejamin Millepied. They’re engaged, not married.
