Natalie Portman & Benjamin Millepied Take A Taxi

Natalie Portman & Benjamin Millepied Take A Taxi

Natalie Portman covers her face with a tote bag as she leaves a building with fiance Benjamin Millepied on Sunday (March 27) in New York City.

Last week, American Ballet Theatre soloist Sarah Lane claimed that in filming for Black Swan, “On the full body shots, I would say 5% are Natalie. All the other shots are me.” Lane was responding to an interview with choreographer Benjamin Millepied who said, “Honestly, 85 percent of that movie is Natalie.”

Fox Searchlight released a statement over the weekend: “We were fortunate to have Sarah there to cover the more complicated dance sequences and we have nothing but praise for the hard work she did. However, Natalie herself did most of the dancing featured in the final film.”

FYI: Natalie is wearing the “Woolen Trench” in caviar black from the Isabella Oliver Maternity Collection.

Ok, if Sarah Lane had such a small role, and only danced for 20 percent of the scenes,

Why was she kept a secret? Why was she warned not to give interviews before the Oscars? Why was she only credited as lady in the lane, rather than a dance double? Why was she never mentioned? Why was the video of her face being replaced with Natalie’s, using CGI removed from Youtube!???

People who have nothing to hide, hide nothing. End of story.

I believe her.

I am convinced that the only people who are criticizing this girl, and saying how she should keep her mouth shut, are the very same people who would take credit from someone else. Anyone who has a sense of boundaries, and realizes that your effort is your effort and mine is mine, can identify with this girl.

How long is this sham going to last?
She is so fugly, omg.

on letterman, portman stated that she trained for black swan a year-and-a half and only lost the weight the last 3 months cuz she likes to eat. so basically, she is saying that she perfected ballet with a heavier body? or she perfected it in 3 months when she was lighter? what a bunch of crock.
she must make her gynocologist father proud for using sloppy birth control methods. shotgun engagement.
portman has done much better acting in other roles. black swan was just a mediocre performance. it was the dancing and special effects that made this movie stand out.
natalie aint no prodigy and aint no little-miss-perfect that graduated from harvard like she would want you to believe.
she went on “the view” after she graduated and acted so snobby and elite about it. no humility at all.
devout jews do not publish papers and preach about it while getting sloppily knocked up by a guy with a live-in girlfriend. and they dont lie about dancing in a major motion picture and diss the true talent.
selfish. folks will never look at her the same way anymore.

Go Natalie!!! @ 03/29/2011 at 1:02 pm

Oh for shite sakes leave her the eff alone >NP b/c she worked her butt off and won an oscar for BEST ACTRESS, NOT best dancer. I don’t remember many ppl paying much or any atttention to extras or doubles in movies but this Sara Lane whiner wants you to hire her as an actress.
So get ready and whatever you do DON”T FORGET THE NAME SARAH LANE or she will try to ruin the oscar she didn’t win.. dumb bytch!

portman’s acting was not her best work in black swan.
she has done much better.
she deserved it in that ann bolyn movie more than this one.
i was completely underwhelmed with her in this movie.
she even did better in that closer movie.
too bad they couldnt at least acknowledge sarah properly in the credits.
all these people speaking out are just trying to keep the obvious covered up. they got caught and its too late to back out now.
shame.

It’s easy to smile in early pregnancy, like she was a couple months ago. Now she is starting to feel the real stuff….and it shows in her expression. I know how she feels.

@jane:
Thank u!!! The Oscar is for the ACTING obviously!!

She is such a cool girl and BritishDatingSite was amazing

I am always hearing about body doubles in movies..Oh WAIT, that’s not right, I actually RARELY hear of who played a body double in a movie. In my opinion, the body double is paid to be just that, to pretend they are the person they are doubling. That is their job. They don’t act or win Oscars. If Natalie had even heard a rumor that Sarah was complaining I can understand why she didn’t mention her. Or maybe she simply forgot at the time (it happens). Honestly, it is also my opinion that Sarah should be out of the body doubling business. Very UNPROFESSIONAL! And to all those talking about how Natalie looks while pregnant you should be ashamed of yourselves.
