Portman and Kunis had drinks before 'Swan' kiss

The girl-on-girl kiss Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis share in the upcoming movie "Black Swan" may look steamy on screen, but director Darren Aronofsky says the actresses were so nervous that they also shared a few drinks before filming the lusty liplock.

The psychological thriller - which arrives in theaters this December - tells the story of Nina (played by Portman), a New York City ballet dancer who lands the lead in "Swan Lake" and gradually becomes unhinged when a rival dancer (Kunis) arrives on the scene. "My character starts being paranoid that she's going to be unseated," Portman told MTV News.

According to director Darren Aronofsky, Portman and Kunis are great friends in real life, which is why they worried that their on-screen love scene might feel awkward. A bottle of tequila, he told the Hollywood Reporter, helped get them in the mood.

"It's a very extreme movie," Portman, 29, told MTV. "It's like very extreme situations. But it's not explicit in any way."

And Kunis's take on the kiss?

“It’s two girls making out, and guys have a thing for that. And Nat is like every guy’s dream. She’s a nerd’s idea of heaven," the 27-year-old former "That '70s Show" star told BlackBook last year. "The whole thing is silly, but I can see why people care.”

    I think this story is strange but this weekend Kristen Bell Tweeted a picture of a Dead Cat on the side of the road with a sign next to it that said Free Cat... to which she said "Still the funniest picture ever" then after she took heat from her followers PETA the animal organization tweeted to Kristen "we like to laugh too... hope the kitty is in heaven" I could not believe my eyes when PETA did not say something like "Kristen thats not a nice picture" ... this is how upside down the world is.

    I don't hold Kristen accountable for being stupid
    I do hold PETA accountable for not chastising her
    Some things just aren't right

    Original Pics can be found on my twitter account @HockeyGuy
    Kristen Bell's Twitter Log can be found on www imdb com
