A local film student said she was willing to take her clothes off and jump into an icy lake in place of the actress.

Natalie Portman's unwillingness to jump into an icy lake for another movie scene has been blown out of proportion since the actress' body double in "Black Swan" launched a protest on the amount of full body shots she did for the Oscar-winning role. Portman, as seen in the trailer of "Your Highness", is butt-naked but she only did one shot.

Daily Mail went to investigate the matter and got hold of the girl whose face was obscured by Portman's. An Irish student by the name of Caroline Davis said, "I'm a film studies student so I jumped at the chance to be on set." Davis, who came from Ulster where the movie was filmed, claimed she was paid GBP250 to take the plunge to the lake. Portman meanwhile only did a scene where she stood on the edge of the lake with a thong bikini.

The "Your Highness" body double issue is hardly a controversy because Portman herself was quoted by Daily Star as saying, "There's one shot that's me and the shot of her diving into the water is a body double, because I didn't wanna go in the water - it was really, really cold."

As for "Black Swan", the controversy kept on going especially when a ballet dancer Sarah Lane revealed on ABC's "20/20" that filmmakers were lying about how much Portman did the dance scenes. "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.

You know if you going to used body doubles at least keep it quiet otherwise you're ruined the movie for everyone. I personally hate when they used body doubles. It takes away the purpose and it's ruined themovie for everyone.

"Black Swan" was terrible. It was just "Wild Things" ... except without the things.

I liked her in "Your Highness," hottie. I liked her in "Thor," beautiful. Is she preggers? I would liked to be the lucky guy to do that.
