Natalie Portman Fills Letterman in on Her Black Swan Weight Loss

Natalie Portman waved to fans yesterday at The Late Show's studios in NYC. The actress is out and about promoting Black Swan ahead of its Dec. 3 release, and she spoke with David Letterman about the diet and exercise regimen she had to endure to play a ballerina. Natalie confessed to losing 20 pounds for the role, which was quite a bit for the 5' 3" star and prompted director Darren Aronofsky to tell her to eat more — check out an excerpt from her video below. She's hanging out in the Big Apple prepping for her film's premiere on Monday, but Natalie's also had time to focus on her favorite cause by joining Jake Gyllenhaal last week at a gala for the microfinance organization FINCA. It's been a serious few weeks for the actress with her drama about to hit theaters, however it's her lighter side on display in her new trailer for Your Highness with James Franco.

Mila Kunis mentioned that she had to lose 20 lbs too. She weighed 95 lbs for the part she played. That's awfully small even for someone 5'3". Why do ballet dancers have to be so skinny?

The movie is terribly overdone.

She's always been pretty thin. I can't imagine why she had to lose 20 pounds. Ballerinas are slender, but she already looked like one to begin with. I'm looking to seeing this movie. She's a great actress.

@ranksubjugatic - Ballerinas are known to have serious eating disorders as they are encouraged to be skinny to conform to the Balanchine body type. @noNella - double HUH? from me

She had to LOSE weight? WTF, aren't ballerinas muscular and fit as well as thin? Was that to make her seem taller? Does not compute! I've never liked her as an actress, but I also always thought she was tiny and gorgeous.

i can't wait to see this movie next week. we've been hearing so much about it and NP has always been one of my favs that it HAS to be good. i also think that mila will do a good job in it too based on what i've seen so its a win win. as for her losing weight - she can't afford to - she's tiny as it is! i hope she's managed to gain most of it back!
