    Default Irish student paid 250 to act as Miss Portman's body double

    Her dance double for Black Swan has claimed that she did hardly any of the full body shots seen in the film.

    And now it is claimed that Natalie Portman used yet another body double for her latest film Your Highness.

    In fact, the actress is said to have avoided diving into an icy lake in Belfast and a local Irish girl was paid just 250 to take the plunge instead.







    Bum deal: Natalie Portman was seen at the edge of the lake in a thong bikini before a Irish student dived into the water in her place



    Caroline Davis from Ulster was paid the sum of money to jump into the cold waters meaning that Portman avoided braving the freezing lake.

    The Irish student told The Sun: Im a film studies student so I jumped at the chance to be on set.

    Portman has been accused of performing very little of the body shots seen in Black Swan, the film that earned her an Oscar gong.


    Taking the plunge: Caroline Davis is said to have stepped in for Natalie Portman during the filming of Your Highness


    Sarah Lane, a soloist with the American Ballet Theatre who worked as Natalie's dance double on the Oscar-winning film, continues to claim the 29-year-old actress did hardly any of the full body shots seen in the movie.

    Talking to ABC's Elizabeth Vargas, Lane says that the film's producers are lying about the amount of dancing Portman did in her scenes and need to come clean.

    Speaking out: Talking to Elizabeth Vargas, Lane says that producers are lying about the amount of dancing Portman did in her scenes and need to come clean
    'They're completely lying about the amount of dancing Natalie did in the movie,' she said.


    The angry brunette implied that her skills as a dancer have now been insulted.

    'I've been doing this for 22 years, and to say that someone trained for a year and a half and did what I did is degrading not only to me but to the entire ballet world,' she said.

    I wonder, does anybody think that there is a line of how far an actress should go regarding stunt doubles Vs. self?
