Natalie Portman has been revealing news on her latest film release, Black Swan.
The 29-year-old star has already been nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress, along with 13 other nominations for her role in the film.
She plays Nina Sayers, a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life is completely consumed with dance.
It took ten years to make but time is what Natalie wanted so that she could prepare for the role.
"You get to a point where you are trying to make yourself happy and trying to fulfill yourself through your performance is a whole new experience and I really gained that in my late 20s and it gave me a perspective that really helped with the film."
The film directed by Darren Aronofsky is released next January.
