Natalie Portman’s “Dance Double” Says ‘Swan’ Filmmakers Are Lying

(ABC)

Natalie Portman‘s Black Swan “dance double” is (still) not giving up the fight.

In a “20/20″ appearance, Ballet pro Sarah Lane says filmmakers are “completely lying” when they insist Portman did most of her own dancing in the role for which she won an Academy Award.

“When those incorrect things are coming out, and they threaten the entire principle of ballet, then I feel like I need to say something,” contends Lane, who claims she’s not “disgruntled” by Portman omitting her from her Oscar acceptance speech.

Darren Aronofsky, who directed Black Swan, has said that Portman contributed 111 “untouched” dance shots out of the 139 shots audiences see her character perform. “If you do the math, that’s 80 percent Natalie Portman,” says Aronofsky.

Apparently, Lane begs to differ.

Check out the video below! What do you think about Lane’s allegations?
