Natalie Portman Was Pitted Against Mila Kunis During 'Black Swan' Filming!
Natalie Portman stylishly steps out to promote her new movie A Tale of Love and Darkness on Friday (August 19) in New York City.
Later that night, the 35-year-old actress stepped out to grab dinner with a few friends.
While speaking with Vogue magazine about her directorial debut with A Tale of Love and Darkness, Natalie shared some behind the scenes secrets about filming Black Swan.
She told the mag that she would train for over 16 hours a day and that director Darren Aronofsky attempted to pit Natalie and co-star Mila Kunis against each other so that their on-screen rivalry would seem more authentic.
“He’d say, ‘Oh, Mila is doing really well on her stuff. She’s so much better than you,’” Natalie said. “Darren would tell us things about each other to try to make us jealous. I think he was trying to create a rivalry in real life between us.”
However, Darren‘s tactic didn’t work while Natalie and Mila remain close friends.
