I am pretty sure this photo http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2011857920/nm0000204?ref_=nmmi_mi_tt_sf_4 is of Mila Kunis, and not Natalie Portman, but I don't know how to change it. Maybe someone else can.

That picture is posted to 100 different sites all labeled as Natalie Portman, it does not originate with IMDB; it's a standard press release of Portmans character Nina for the film.

It should also be noted that this picture is uploaded to Portmans name page and not the film. Which means that image was uploaded by her or one of her agents and was not added by some random person off the internet. It's claimed by her as her personal portfolio picture.

Using reverse image lookup, more than 900 websites claim this is a picture of Natalie Portman:

I'm sorry but I think I'm gonna side with the fact that this was a press release and part of Portmans portfolio rather than one persons opinion that it looks like Mila Kunis.

For the record; you should realize that often with dancers in a show (like those characters), its not uncommon for them to be recruited so they look similar and than to use makeup to make them appear even more similar. Many dance troops will put a small army of dancers on stage all visually attempting to look as similar as possible. So all I can say is that if you still think that looks like Mila Kunis; than the makeup artists did their job very well for the type of characters they are portraying in the film.

Thanks for taking time to reply.
I suppose I'm wrong then! But the next time I watch the film I am definitely keeping an eye on this scene....
