Ladies, you may finally get your man to escort you to the ballet … well, a movie about ballet.
Black Swan, the in-the-works supernatural thriller from director Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain), is set in the world of ballet and depicts the ruthless and escalating rivalry between dancers Nina and Lilly, played respectively by Natalie Portman (V for Vendetta, Revenge of the Sith) and Mila Kunis (The Book of Eli, Max Payne). The film is Aronofsky’s followup to last year’s sleeper hit The Wrestler and remains shrouded in secrecy. However, one extremely titillating and buzz-generating plot point is known: Portman and Kunis will share a sex scene.
How explicit the sex scene will be is not yet known. But, the folks at ScriptShadow have reviewed a copy of the screenplay and describe the romp as:
Ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex.
Of course, things can change once filming starts. Portman downplayed what could be the greatest pairing in movie history during an interview with MTV today.
Portman, who did go nude in Wes Anderson’s short film Hotel Chevalier, told MTV:
It’s a very extreme movie, it’s like very extreme situations. But, it’s not explicit in any way.
Kunis was also vague when discussing the scene. She tells Black Book Magazine:
Sure, it’s two girls making out, and guys have a thing for that. And Nat is like every guy’s dream. She’s a nerd’s idea of heaven. The whole thing is silly, but I can see why people care.
What I don’t understand is how none of these journalists ever ask the question that we the people (those of us with cocks) are dying to know: is there nudity? While common sense tells me that the scene will most likely be lame tame, until I hear someone say “tastefully done,” I am holding on to hope. After all, Aronofsky is the man who got Jennifer Connelly to go bottomless in Requiem for a Dream.
Black Swan also stars Winona Ryder (Star Trek, Alien: Resurrection) as lead ballet dancer Beth, Barbara Hershey (Riding the Bullet) as Nina’s mother, and Vincent Cassel (The Cross) as Yevna, the ballet’s director.
