Unless you live in a cave then you’ve heard about the graphic lesbian sex scene between real-life friends Natalie Portman, 29, and Mila Kunis, 27, in their new ballet-themed mind-bender movie The Black Swan.
According to director Darren Aronofsky, the two required a few drinks to help get them through the awkward scene Portman has described as, “not raunchy” but “extreme;” in specific, a few drinks of tequila.
“False!” was the immediate one-word answer from Kunis concerning the alcohol allegation. “There was no tequila! Not sure where that rumor came from, but it’s false.”
If she only knew that it was from her director’s mouth, who now I personally think is knockin’ back a few himself after he was also quoted as saying that he had set a one and a half day limit to film the sex sequence, but in the end felt guilty that he had rushed it, taking only one day total.
He’ll be smackin’ his head and saying ‘D’oh!’ for that brilliant move for a long, long time.
And even though Kunis claims, “They’re never comfortable, same-sex, opposite-sex, it’s never comfortable,” a few shots wouldn’t have helped anyway. “I don’t think we could have done that scene if we were intoxicated” she adds.
In actuality, the real difficulty was not with the sex scene, but with the brutal training for 7 days a week, 4-5 hours a day of ballet cardio and pilates, as well as the 20 pound weight loss that, according to Kunis, made her look like, “Gollum from Lord of the Rings! … Everything was just protruding.”Tags: kiss, lesbian scene, Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, sex scene, The Black Swan
