Black Swan (13)Natalie Portman Won An Oscar For Her Performance In Black SwanAfter the gruelling regime of filming Black Swan, Natalie Portman has said that moving on to filming Thor has delayed the onset of a total breakdown.

Speaking to The Sun Newspaper, she said: "It probably delayed the onset of a total breakdown from the efforts of doing Black Swan, which is going to hit at any moment."

"We got nice long breaks and I got to read in my trailer which was very comfortable and has a bed. I could eat whenever I wanted and train whenever I felt like it.

"Also I went on to do the Ivan Reitman comedy No Strings Attached as well. They didn't require a lot of research ahead of time.

"They didn't require any specific physical training. Both were very fun projects, surrounded by friends."

"They were both the gentlest of any work experience I could have gone into after the extreme situation of doing Black Swan."

Thor is due for release tomorrow - read our review of Thor.
