Natalie Portman continues dark streak in ‘Black Swan’
HollywoodNews.com: Many forget, but Natalie Portman has a penchant for playing dark roles, specifically those who operate on the fringe of society.
Portman arrived on the scene as a child actress in Luc Besson’s 1994 actioner “The Professional” as an assassin. She earned a Golden Globe supporting actress win for her role as a stripper in Mike Nichols 2004 film “Closer.”
In Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming fall thriller “Black Swan,” she plays a ballerina weathering a breakdown.
“The character was very interesting to play, always challenging and surprising,” Natalie tells USA Today.
