Natalie Portman and her Black Swan co-star Mila Kunis hit the booze to prep for their steamy love scene in the upcoming thriller, according to the director.
Portman and Kunis, who are friends in real life, needed a bit of Dutch courage before they could get kinky between the sheets, says Darren Aronofsky. So a bottle of tequila was called for.
Aronfsky told The Hollywood Reporter that the scene was shot in half a day, although it was booked for a full day. He felt guilty putting the girls through the, erm, motions.
Portman stars in the movie as a tormented dancer caught in a web of competitive intrigue.
Aronosfsky, who also directed Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler, looks set to take us on one hell of a disturbing and thrilling ride.
