Check this crap out:
Natalie Portman won an Academy Award for her portrayal of a tortured dancer in “Black Swan,” but some have called her dancing integrity into question. Benjamin Millepied, Portman’s “Black Swan” dance partner and choreographer (not to mention her fiance and the father of her future child), swears that’s all nonsense.
Millepied is featured in a new Los Angeles Times article that focuses on both his career in dance and his relationship with Portman. The French-born former dance prodigy personally instructed Portman in her film dancing and even wrote her routine. The accusations are baseless, he says.
“It was so believable, it was fantastic, that beautiful movement quality,” he told the paper. “There are articles now talking about her dance double that are making it sound like [Sarah Lane, her body double] did a lot of the work, but really, she just did the footwork, and the fouettés, and one diagonal [phrase] in the studio. Honestly, 85% of that movie is Natalie.”

STOPSTOPSTOPSTOPSTOP!!!! you just sound ridiculous.
Ok I know you’re in love, and getting married and having a baby, but damnit, stop this maddness, she already won the damned Oscar!!! Benjamin , and I don’t know him but I am speaking to him, we all know that she had a body double, we all know that ABT’s Sarah Lane was doing all the “real” dancing first because I don’t care how talented you are one year of intensive training is not getting that daning done I don’t care if you were one of the Children of Theater Street.
we also know because there is a special effect video out that shows how they replaced Sarah Lane’s head, with Portman’s in ther very diaganal and the fouettés- If Portman was that proficiant why use Sarah at all? shame on you
OMG!! they reedited the video that was on Youtube that had Sarah Lanes face being replaced!! The video was taken down and I went to replace it and this version was there, without the scenes!!!! this is ridiculous!!
