Portman ‘terrified’ by lesbian kiss
Natalie Portman was “terrified” at kissing her female co-star in a new film.
“I was terrified. At the moment I lived in a state of inner terror,” she said about filming the sex scenes between herself and Mila Kunis in Black Swan.
The 28-year-old actress is also concerned that the lesbian sex scenes will overshadow the whole film.
She said: “Nudity is something absolutely natural and I’m not prudish — but in a film it can be distracting. Doing Black Swan I couldn’t say no.
“The project is a huge opportunity for me to show a new me. I can’t always play the nice mothers. My other problem is that single pictures are being taken out of context and put on the internet.”
Set in the competitive world of New York ballet, Black Swan stars Portman as a veteran ballerina who finds herself in direct competition with a mysterious ballerina, played by Kunis.
Black Swan, which also stars Winona Ryder and Vincent Cassel, is due to be released in the UK later this year.
