Natalie Portman has joked how Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky has made her fat.
As she accepted the Critics Choice Award for Best Actress, the 29-year-old who is expecting her first child with her fiance, Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied, teased that the filmmaker has a lot to answer for.
“I keep telling Darren ‘you made me skinny and are indirectly responsible for getting me very fat as you introduced me to my love’,” she laughed, before adding: “But I am incredibly grateful for that most special of gifts.”
The actress went on to thank her parents who were in the audience.
“If I am a shadow as good a parent, an echo, then I will be the best in the world, so thank you,” she said.
