Clarifying rumors she has stripped for a swimming scene in the film, the 'Black Swan' star explains that the shot actually captures her body double because she didn't want to go in the cold water.
Natalie Portman has cleared up rumors suggesting she stripped for a swimming scene in new film "Your Highness", insisting it was too cold for her to take a dip naked. The "Black Swan" star appears naked from behind in the titillating scene - but she has revealed a body double was the one baring all.
She explains, "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." The scene hit the headlines recently after producers were forced to cover the naked body double up for the film's trailer. A black bikini outfit was digitally added to the clip.
In "Your Highness", Natalie takes the role of a warrior princess named Isabel. Joining her in the cast ensemble are Danny McBride, James Franco and Zooey Deschanel. The comedy movie directed by David Gordon Green will open wide in theaters across the United States this Friday, April 8.
