Wow! Are they sure that’s Natalie Portman

USA Today has published the first image of Portman in Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming psychological thriller, Black Swan, and obviously this is a side of the V for Vendetta beauty the world hasn’t seen before.

Set amid the world of ballet in New York City, the film—which co-stars Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder and Sebastian Stan—explores the rivalry between a veteran ballerina (Ryder) and a newcomer, Nina (Portman), and the twisted lengths they go to in their battle for the spotlight.
