Gossip: Natalie Portman

The ballerina who served as Natalie Portman’s body double in the film Black Swan claimed that producers exaggerated the actress’s dancing ability in her Oscar-winning performance.

The ballerina who served as Natalie Portman’s body double in the film Black Swan claimed this week that producers exaggerated the actress’s dancing ability in her Oscar-winning performance. “Of the full body shots, I would say 5 percent of them are Natalie,” said Sarah Lane, 27, who dances with the American Ballet Theatre. “All the other shots are me.” Portman’s fiancé, Benjamin Millepied, who choreographed the film, defended his pregnant girlfriend, saying that Lane “just did the footwork” for the dance sequences.
