Personal Quote:

[on creating Black Swan (2010)] It was a very hard film to make and I ended up making everyone's commitment to stay on it longer and longer. Every time we had a push because the money fell apart, or whatever, the hardest conversation I would have was with Natalie [Portman] because I knew it meant carrot sticks and almonds for another 3 months for her and she was not going to be happy.

Trivia:

In March 2011, Aronofsky announced he was leaving production of The Wolverine (2013) because it would require him to be filming outside of the United States for too long. He released a statement specifying, "I was not comfortable being away from my family for that length of time. I am sad that I won't be able to see the project through". See more »

Trademark:
