In the new thriller Black Swan, Natalie Portman plays a prima ballerina, a part that she really got into. During filming, director Darren Aronofsky was so concerned with how lean Natalie was getting that he insisted that she eat more: "At a certain point I looked at [Natalie's] back and she was so skinny and so cut — I was like, 'Natalie, start eating,' I made sure she had a bunch of food in her trailer."
Natalie took her role seriously and embraced the rigorous lifestyle that a prima ballerina keeps, so it was not too surprising on how skinny she became. The day after shooting ended, Natalie says she ate "pasta, pasta, pasta" and quit working out.
