The Daily Beast: Hollywood Body Doubles

Natalie Portman's Double: Sarah Lane

For two weeks, Natalie Portman has been embroiled in a scandal about how much dancing she did in "Black Swan." Sarah Lane, a 22-year-old ballerina, claims it's a "coverup" and that she actually performed the majority of the ballet scenes while Portman was responsible for "5 percent." The film's choreographer (and Portman's fiancé) Benjamin Millepied put the figure at "85 percent." But director Darren Aronofsky went to the evidence, telling Entertainment Weekly that 111 of Black Swan's 139 dance shots (or 80 percent) feature the Oscar winner. Then, right on the ballet slipper heels of that debate came a new one involving Portman: Irish model Caroline Davis told Film Drunk that she was the actress' butt double in the thong scene from "Your Highness," opening April 8. The site got right to the bottom of the mystery, determining that Davis did double for Portman's derriere—but only so the A-lister wouldn't have to dive into freezing water.
