Natalie Portman: Darren Aronofsky supports her defense

After hearing much criticism on account of Natalie Portman, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky supports her cause.

Natalie Portman’s Black Swan dance double, Sarah Lane, sparked controversy when she claimed the Oscar-winning actress performed only 5 percent of full body shots in the film.

Now, the director of the movie Black Swan, Darren Aronofsky, responds to attacks on Natalie Portman.

“I had my editor count. There are 139 dance shots in the film. 111 are Natalie untouched. 28 are her dance double Sarah Lane,” he told Entertainment Weekly in a statement. “If you do the math that’s 80% Natalie Portman. There are two complicated longer dance sequences that we used face replacement. Even so, if we were judging by time over 90% would be Natalie.”

“And to be clear Natalie did dance on pointe in pointe shoes,” continued the director. “I am responding to put this to rest and to defend my actor. Natalie sweated long and hard to deliver a great physical and emotional performance. And I don’t want anyone to think that’s not her they are watching. It is.”
