It seems the only thing anyone can talk about when it comes to “Black Swan” is the much-hyped sex scene between Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. Even Kunis and her dad found themselves discussing the nitty-gritty details.
Their conversation amounted to this: Mr. Kunis was banned from watching the scenes in question.
“He was like, ’I don’t think I should see the movie,’ ” Kunis told MTV News. “I was like, ’See the movie. There’s going to be a point; get up and leave.’ ”
And so that’s exactly what happened. When the no-holds-barred sex session came up — a scene Portman previously told us was “not explicit in any way,” but which is undeniably steamy — Kunis gave her dad the signal, and off he went. “I don’t think any dad should see. It’s just not necessary,” she explained.
While Kunis avoided some familial awkwardness in that situation, she’s found it more than a little uncomfortable to constantly discuss the sex scene with the press. “Doing [the scene], you never judge your character, so you always have justification for it,” the 27-year-old said. “When you do it, it makes sense while you’re doing it. You don’t feel like it’s you doing it.”
She added, “The more I talk about it, the more I have to think about it. We never discussed it. It was like the pink elephant in the room that was never touched upon until it was the day to shoot. Then we just did it really quickly and called it a day.”
