Sarah Lane, an American Ballet Theater soloist who was Natalie Portman’s double in Black Swan, gave an interview to Dance Magazine in December and said that Fox Searchlight told her to stop talking to the media because she feels they wanted everybody to think that Nat did most of her own dancing. Natalie never thanked Sarah in her acceptance speech and she constantly talked about how the ballet training made her feel like she was going to end up in a casket.
But some hos want to see the Nat’s calluses (calluses are the new receipts), because they aren’t convinced. And now Natalie’s fiance and future baby father is leaping to her defense. Benjamin Millepied trained Natalie and choreographed that shit, so he says he should know. Benjamin tells The L.A. Times:
“It was so believable, it was fantastic, that beautiful movement quality. There are articles now talking about her dance double [American Ballet Theatre dancer Sarah Lane] that are making it sound like [Lane] 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.”
[I made] things fluid and not too complicated. By getting more movement going, which in turn added to the camera movement — that is basically what I did. If we had kept things more classical, more restrained, less fluid, it would have been harder to trick the eye.”
Hmm. Well, my mom taught me to never trust a gold digger who looks like a 1970s era gay porn star/Wrangler jeans fit model, so I say yank the Oscar out of that bitch’s hands and give it to its rightful owner: ELIZABETH BERKLEY! Because in the clamp on cinema’s nipple called Showgirls, Elizabeth did her own “acting” and pussy poppin’. Hand it over!
