LONDON - Natalie Portman’s relationship with her father is said to have become ‘very frosty’ over explicit sex scenes in her latest movie.
The star’s father Avner Hershlag is said to be unhappy with the scenes in psychological thriller Black Swan in which his daughter plays a lesbian ballerina.
She has previously turned down roles, including Lolita, which she considered too explicit, but she was determined to take on the role of troubled prima ballerina Nina in ‘Black Swan’.
“Natalie is a very private and dignified person and is often influenced by her father’s approval,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying.
“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. (ANI)
