Mila Kunis Defends Natalie Portman's 'Black Swan' Dancing
Mila Kunis sips an iced coffee while leaving a friend’s house on Monday (March 28) in Los Angeles.
The 27-year-old actress recently spoke out about accusations her Black Swan co-star, Natalie Portman, didn’t do much of the dancing in the drama.
“Natalie danced her a– off. I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from [the praise] Natalie deserved and got,” Mila told EW.
“She’ll tell you [that], no, she was not on pointe when she did a fouetté [turn]. No one’s going to deny that. But she did do every ounce of every one of her dances,” she said about the Oscar winner.
“[Her dancing double] wasn’t used for everything. It was more like a safety net. If Nat wasn’t able to do something, you’d have a safety net,” she explained. “The same thing that I had – I had a double as a safety net. We all did. No one ever denied it.”
