Somebody is pissed off. Sarah Lane, American Ballet dancer who was Natalie Portman's double in the film is not happy with Portman and the executives of the film.
The professional ballerina says that she was told by Fox Searchlight executives not to speak out about her contribution to the film and allow Portman to take credit for all the dance moves.
Sounds very Hollywood to me
"They were trying to create this facade that she had become a ballerina in a year-and-a-half," she told Dance Magazine in December. "So I knew they didn't want to publicize anything about me."
Portman would frequently talk about the intense psychological drama felt trying to master ballet techniques for the film. When she won the Academy Award, the actress did not acknowledge her dance double. Lane was also apparently deleted from a DVD extra showing Black Swan's special effects.
Oh well, life sucks!
Portman is the movie star not this Lane person.
Of course, the films choreographer, and Portman's baby daddy is defending his lady love saying, Lane "just did the footwork and the fouettes.
