Watch: Natalie Portman's 'Black Swan' Ballet Training Featurette
Yea, we've been featuring a lot of these behind-the-scenes featurettes for Black Swan, from the effects to director Darren Aronofsky, but there's one more you've got to take a look at - especially before she wins the Oscar next week (she's the shoo-in, there's no way she won't win it). Fox Searchlight recently released a new featurette focusing on the hours and hours of intensive training that Natalie Portman had to do in order to play the role of ballerina Nina Sayers in Aronofsky's mesmerizing Best Picture-nominated psychological thriller (whew, what a sentence). We'll definitely be rooting for Natalie at the Oscars on the 27th. Enjoy!
