Natalie Portman broke her silence on the controversy over how much dancing she did (or didn't do) for her Oscar-winning "Black Swan" performance. While promoting the film "Your Highness," Portman told E! news, "I know what went on. We had an amazing experience making the movie. I don't want to tarnish it by entering into nastiness."

Portman continued, "I'm really proud of everyone's work on the movie and of my experience. I'll have that forever. And it's nice for me to always know about that no matter what kind of nastiness or gossip is going around."
