London, Oct 25 (IANS) Hollywood actress Natalie Portman’s father is reportedly upset over his daughter’s portrayal of a lesbian ballerina in new thriller ‘Black Swan’, because he deems the explicit sex scenes as ‘degrading’.
The ‘Star Wars’ star plays troubled dancer Nina in the upcoming Darren Aronofsky’s movie, which sees her engaging in raunchy love scenes with co-star Mila Kunis and this has apparently upset her father, reports contactmusic.com.
‘Natalie is a very private and dignified person and is often influenced by her father’s approval,’ said a source.
‘This, however, was one role she simply didn’t want to turn down even though she knew it would upset her father. He still sees her as his baby and always will and thinks showing herself like this is degrading.
‘Things are very frosty between them right now,’ the source added.
