Sarah Lane: Black Swan Dancing Was All Me!

Posted on April 15, 2011

Professional ballerina Sarah Lane was Natalie Portman's dance double in Black Swan. She is determined to make sure absolutely no one gets the impression that Natalie Portman is an incredible ballerina after watching Black Swan. Sarah says Natalie Portman did hardly any dancing at all in the movie. She also accuses the filmmakers of "completely lying about the amount of dancing that Natalie did in the movie."

Sarah says, "They were trying to create this image, this facade, really, that Natalie had done something extraordinary. Something that is pretty much impossible ... to become a professional ballerina in a year and half. Even with as hard as she worked, it takes so much more. It takes twenty-two years, it takes thirty years to become a ballerina."
