♫♪ Black Swan
Perfection is not just about control. It’s also about letting go. Surprise yourself so you can surprise the audience.
Darren Aronofsky and Natalie Portman on the set of Black Swan, 2010
“I think everything in this world can be interpreted on another level. The truth is that Nina is going through a transformation from a little girl to a woman. She’s going from someone who is concerned with how other people view her and seeing herself through other people’s eyes. And she has to find pleasure for herself in order to become a woman, in order to see the world through her own eyes and discover how to please herself instead of pleasing other people.”
-Natalie Portman on her role as Nina Sayers in Black Swan.
