We've been resisting to post about Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, a forthcoming psychological thriller flick about the uber-competitive world of NYC ballerinas clawing their way to the top of Swan Lake's Odette -- where the supernatural plot doesn't really even matter because in the end, the screenplay boasts an angsty lesbian secks scene between the two star ballerinas, Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis (and also a rape -- Vincent Cassel's "Yevna" gets his rape on with Portman's "Nina" -- the two of them pictured above) (and also Winona Ryder as a washed-up ballerina). Currently being shot in and around Lincoln Center, Portman and Kunis even showed-up for the American Ballet Theatre Fall Gala back in October.
But while we find the plot totally uninteresting, the behind-the-scenes action could make its own screenplay:
French dancer and choreographyer Benjamin Millepied, who calls NYC his home as a New York City Ballet principal, and was brought on by director Aronofsky to supervise the choreography, has been liberally pilfering from the set. It seems in the months together coaching lead Natalie Portman, the two have grown fond of each other, enough that Millepied kicked his former live-in girlfriend of three years, American Ballet Theatre ballerina, Isabella Boylston, to the curb:
Is Natalie Portman a home wrecker? The notoriously private actress has reportedly been dating Benjamin Millepied, 32, the New York City Ballet dancer who's choreographing her new movie, "The Black Swan." "They've been dating since the fall, although she told friends that she hasn't gone public with it because she was waiting to see if things got serious," a source tells Page Six. "But the real reason she was quiet about things is that Ben had a live-in girlfriend of three years when they met. She was a ballerina at the American Ballet Theater. She had been talking about marrying him and was blindsided by the split. She moved out right after New Year's Eve."
You can find a clip of Isabella dancing on Millepied's YouTube account here (and the [formerly happy] couple above). We just hope Millepied knows that he's dating Devendra Banhart's leftovers (see below)...
