Mila Kunis has joined Darren Aronofsky in the corner of Natalie Portman.
In response to accusations that the Oscar winner scarcely took part in any of the choreography depicted in the movie, Kunis tells Entertainment Weekly: “Natalie danced her ass off. I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from [the praise] Natalie deserved and got.”
It's also coming out the week Black Swan comes to DVD, which, ironically, will likely drive interest in the film.
Kunis adds that she and Portman have been open about the help they received from experienced dancers such as Sarah Lane, who has accused filmmakers of covering up her role.
"She did do every ounce of every one of her dances,” Kunis says of her co-star. “[Lane] 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. The same thing that I had - I had a double as a safety net. We all did. No one ever denied it.”
