Skip to comments.I took the plunge for Natalie: Irish student paid £250 to act as Miss Portman's body double

Her dance double for Black Swan has claimed that she did hardly any of the full body shots seen in the film.
And now it is claimed that Natalie Portman used yet another body double for her latest film Your Highness.
In fact, the actress is said to have avoided diving into an icy lake in Belfast and a local Irish girl was paid just £250 to take the plunge instead.

Well, insurance reasons on actors regarding film investments.
If they have to halt or stop production because an actor is hurt or worse, there are payments they have to make.
This is not to defend Hollywood per se, but there are contractual agreements signed when a film is being put into production.
Haven’t seen either movie, but wouldn’t a body double also be used for nude scenes? For some reason I thought there might be nude scenes on both movies and Natalie Portman seems to be modest in that regard.
“That student could have gotten some serious health problems from jumping into an icy lake.”
Serious health problems?
We were raised in cold climate, and we liked it that way.
Cold water for baths, uphill both ways to school and barefoot till 21.
We never complained and lived to beat the nazi’s!!!/S
My grandma was never a wimp, like these wimps we have around us today.
I remember very well the consequences when a leading actor was killed in the final filming of Twilight Zone: The Movie.
It delayed the film I think by at least two years and it was severely edited, the actor Vic Morrow was decapitated by the blades of a chopper along with a Vietnamese child actor.
In the film “Closer”, Nats plays a stripper and (at in least the versions I've seen) didn't show anything. Close (no pun intended), but no call.
To quote the great philosopher Andrew ‘Dice’ Clay: “Upside down, it's all the same!”
In an ESPN "roundtable" interview that is included in the DVD set, Russell said one of the biggest challenges they faced was dealing with potential injuries to the young hockey players in the various roles as players on the team. Even a not-so-serious injury would have had serious ramifications, since they would have to set back the filming schedule by days or weeks if a player got an obvious bruise or cut while filming one scene and then didn't have signs of the same injury for another scene that had been filmed previously but came in a later sequence in the movie.
I never even thought about that when I was watching the movie itself.
Who’s the person taking the picture with Natalie’s breasts?
Cold room or hanky panky?
She’s like rich no? You think she could afford a decent brassier and a better fitting top.
So cold standing next to a witch.
But... but... you mean that Hollywood films are not completely real?
Say it ain’t so...
Well done. Hahaha
Hmmmm... because they're actresses and actors, and not stunt people, cops, dancers, astronauts, Biblical figures, and so on?
I think I may have some bad news for you.
William Shatner didn't really go into space or command the USS Enterprise or kill alien dudes.
Judy Garland didn't really go to Oz or make friends with Munchkins or land a house on anyone's sister.
Clint Eastwood didn't really stroll around San Francisco with his .44 Smith & Wesson Model 29 blowing away bad guys.
Slim Pickens never rode the H-bomb to detonation.
Charlton Heston never went to the Holy Land to part the Red Sea, never traveled into the future to kill any damned dirty apes, and never offed any zombies after a terrible plague took most of humanity. He never thought that Soylent Green was people, either.
They were acting. Hired for their ability to deliver lines or look pretty/handsome, or because they made nice with the producer or because they owned the property.
I don't know but other than who she with, she look fine to me./s
Well, they are paid to act, you know. I'm not a big fan of Portman's, but they don't award Oscars based on jumping into cold lakes.
i believe two children died...
Standing next to the Ice Queen, your cold weather indicaters would be showing too.
Better look at her breasts right there than in the lesbian scene (bra on).
Need to put my hand up to the screen though cause creepy looking old man on the left messes up the entire picture.

I am assuming the scene in Black Swan where she is playing with herself was neither acting nor a body double, correct?
Uhhh...Laz might’ve had a hand in that scene...
BTW, never have I been surer than Hillary has lesbian tendencies. She looks like Michael Moore in a chocolate chip factory.
This is news? This has been going on ever since movies began.
>>>>But... but... you mean that Hollywood films are not completely real?
Next thing you know someone will reveal that WWF, WWE, etc. are fake.
Yep...Nat is darn-near nude in ‘Your Highness’. Have not seen the film, but did see the ‘red-band’ trailer for it. She (or her body double) is wearing nothing but a thong when she dives into the lake.
“Galaxy Quest” was an amusing movie in which aliens come to earth looking for a great commander who can rescue their civilization. They have seen the TV show “Galaxy Quest” and are convinced that the William Shatner-like lead actor can command their starship and do the job.
Not sure about Hilly. I've thought of her as being asexual. OTOH, Chelsea looks a lot like Web Hubbell.
Bond flicks: Nice assessment! Rosamund Pike - HAWT!!!
I have never found Denise Richards to be attractive. Tanya Roberts, OTOH, still hot at ~55. Oh yeah!!!
Black Swan: “creepy looking old man” = Vincent Cassell who's married to Monica Bellucci, one of the hottest Italian women around. He was also the “Night Fox” in Ocean's 12 and 13. Another Tate-Polanski “HUH, how did HE land HER”?
Fleabaggers: Constitute the cornucopia of anti-American, anti-Traditional groups and causes.
The Donald: I'd still take him over Milt, Hucks, etc. The $100,000 question is: Is he for real or not. I don't know. I do know I LOVE what he's been doing the last couple weeks. Time will tell.
Detroit: Flatten it. Use Jack Kemp's “Areas of Entrepreneurship” idea and make it a tax/duty free shipping/receiving area or something. Maybe turn it into an attraction like the old LA in “Demolition Man” where the Scraps lived. It's too far gone to save as an actual population area. “Robocop” has come true.
Bernanke: A traitor that should be dealt with Columbian” style. I have more respect for the average coke dealer on any street than him.
Beverly DAngelo: Me likely the shower and swimming pool scenes in the original “National Lampoon's Vacation”. BOOB ALERT!!!
Milt: If he's “a moderate conservative”, than kiss my grits. Moderate, MAYBE, but no way conservative. Like I've been preaching, RomneyCare is an unforgivable sin. And he's not talking his way out of it. Non-starter.
Does Ms. Hershlag have a Twitter account to ask her this directly? :)
Hillary was actually the creepy old man I was referring to! Though Cassel isn’t easy on the eyes either.
I think Hill takes after Eleanor Roosevelt. I think she likes girls (she being the “man” with them) but also like many “lesbians” enjoys a good (blank) from powerful if ugly men like Bill and Webb Hubbell (maybe Chelsea’s real father).
I do find Denise Richards attractive but her character was ridiculous.
Did any of you guys see that film with Bev D’A “The Sentinel”? I’m loving the you tube video of the one scene in it that I’m sure is infamous if you know about it.
Go to the 2:33 minute mark. I actually though She and Pierce had some real chemistry in the movie.
She wasn’t the problem with the movie.
I thought Christmas only comes once a year! I did like that part.
You crazy! She was horrid. Looks wise, she’s not a pimple on Sophie Marceau’s sweet butt!
However you are right, Denise Silicone wasn’t the problem, that flick along with “Die Another Day” were comical.
Ah Hilly. I see what you’re saying.
Think I’ll buy an iPad. Jack@ss Jr. is proof that you don’t have to have a brain to be a politician.
I have not seen The Sentinel. Now I might have to. Thanks!
p.s. Even Chazz Manson doen’t like Obama (scroll to the very bottom):
