Natalie Portman Discusses Body Double Controversy

Cat fight! Well, not really. But Natalie Portman is finally breaking the silence about her Black Swan body double.

"I know what went on," Portman told E! News. "I'm really proud of everyone's work on the movie, my experience. I will have that forever. And it's nice for me to know about that no matter what kind of nastiness or gossip is going around."

Translate: I got my Oscar, so I really don't give a f-ck.

Fiancé Benjamin Millepied defended Natalie against body double Sarah Lane's claims that they "trying to create this facade that she had become a ballerina in a year-an-a-half". Millepied told the L.A. Times, "Honestly 85% of that movie is Natalie."

Still, it was odd that Lane wasn't allowed to talk to the press until after the Oscars. Celebs have so many stand-ins, I wouldn't be surprised if all the pics we're seeing of pregnant Natalie are a body double, too.

Portman is expecting her tiny dancer to arrive this summer, and she says, "I have to admit, it's really fun being able to take it easy and not worry about food."

After near starving herself for the Black Swan role, I'd say she deserves it.
