Natalie Portman Getting Oscar Buzz for Black Swan

Natalie Portman is the talk of the town at the Venice Film Festival this week, not only because she looked radiant in Versace on the red carpet, but for her racy role in Black Swan.

Natalie, who "hyper-trained" for six months for the extremely physical role, is getting a ton of Oscar buzz for her role!

And there's something for everyone in the movie, including the fellas! Natalie shares a steamy lesbian love scene in the movie with actress Mila Kunis. Oooh sexy!

The director, Darren Aronofsky, "talked to me about this [sex] scene in our first meeting eight years ago," Portman told reporters in Venice, according to Reuters.

"He described it as: 'You're going to have a sex scene with yourself.' And I thought that was very interesting, because this movie is in so many ways an exploration of an artist's ego and that narcissistic sort of attraction to yourself and also repulsion with yourself."

If you haven't had a chance to check out the trailer for the movie, you're missing out! It's definitely going to be one of the frontrunners at the Oscars. Check out the trailer below...
