She went on to co-star in the Oscar-nominated "Black Swan," where she had to train for four hours a day, seven days a week on a 1,200-calorie a day diet. She said of her look at 98 pounds, "Flat, flat, flat! There was no shape, no form, nothing, nothing, nothing. When I was shooting 'Black Swan,' everyone was like, 'Gosh, you're really too skinny.' Then my weight starting bouncing back and they're like, 'She looked better when she was anorexic-looking!' You can't please anyone! It was just for work. I didn't do it because I had issues. Now this is my normal weight that I started with."
Her film career continued to accelerate with starring roles in "Friends with Benefits" and "Ted."
