The Oscar race is on, and Natalie Portman is one of the front runners for her performance in Black Swan. The engaged and pregnant actress has opened up about how challenging the role was for her, and what she thinks the draw of the movie really is! On the physical aspect of the role, Portman commented that she was worried she might die during filming:

“There were some nights that I thought I literally was going to die, it was the first time I understood how you could get so wrapped up in a role that it could sort of take you down.”

Natalie also says that she thinks everyone would want to see Black Swan because of the lesbian sex scene which takes place between her character and actress Mila Kunis in the film:

“Everyone was so worried about who was going to want to see this movie, I remember them being like, ‘How do you get guys to a ballet movie? How do you get girls to a thriller?’ And the answer is a lesbian scene. Everyone wants to see that.”
