In Black Swan, one of the most talked about movies of 2010, actress Natalie Portman plays a prima ballerina so obsessed with perfection that she loses all sense of reality. The movie has gained five Oscar® nominations—including Best Picture and a Best Actress nomination for Natalie.

Jenifer says the movie's first part is a good depiction of the hard work it takes to be a dancer. "I thought Natalie Portman was amazing. It's hard [enough] for a dancer to look like a dancer, and she actually managed to look like a ballerina. I thought it was impressive," Jenifer says. "And then, you know, when the craziness started it was an exaggeration and a dramatization. I mean, I thought it was fun!"

Watch Jenifer explain the sacrifice and beauty of dancing with a partner.
