Natalie Portman’s new film ‘Black Swan’ hits theaters in a couple of weeks, and she’s making the talk show rounds.
One interesting story from the set she shared with David Letterman was when she dislocated her ribs!
A lift gone bad and no medic on the set lead to the injury. She explains:
“I injured a rib, I like dislocated a rib, it sort of went under another one, when you get lifted it just sort of went under.”
The film reportedly was too low budget, and they cut medical attention from the final budget. She added:
“It’s funny because when I got injured I called the producer; I was like ‘Could you get the medic? I need an ice pack or something right now,’ and he was like, ‘Oh, we don’t have a medic because it’s super low budget.’ I have been working for like twenty years, I don’t even think that’s legal. I was like before you take away a medic, take away my trailer and the next day I didn’t have a trailer, I swear to God!”
