Sarah Lane Calls Out "Facade" of Black Swan

by at .

Sarah Lane is at it again.

The professional dancer, who served as a body double for Natalie Portman in Black Swan and has said she was on camera for a major of dance scenes, spoke to 20/20 last night and said producers told her to remain quiet about her role.

"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," said Lane. "Even with as hard as she worked, it takes so much more."

Director Darren Aronofsky and co-star Mila Kunis have both questioned Lane's assessment, but she says "they're completely lying about the amount of dancing that Natalie did in the movie."

That's why she's speaking out.

Lane insists that she is simply standing up for the dancing community.

"I've been doing this for 22 years, and to say that someone trained for a year and a half and did what I did is degrading not only to me but to the entire ballet world."
