London: Actress Mila Kunis still has her male dance partner’s thumb marks imprinted on her skin, reminding her of the grueling ballerina training which she underwent for the upcoming movie ‘Black Swan’.
The actress plays a professional ballet star opposite Natalie Portman in the Darren Aronofsky’s acclaimed new thriller, which tells the story of a gifted dancer who cracks under pressure after landing a leading role.
Kunis and Portman trained for months before they began shooting, and both dropped a huge amount of weight to look like real ballerinas.
The Family Guy star has now revealed the tough preparation has left her facing a medical procedure to remove marks on her body caused by hours of practising lifts with a male dancer.
"I thought they would go away, but they haven’t, so I’m getting them removed. It’s kind of awesome," a daily quoted her as saying.
