Natalie Portman disguises her growing baby bump in a large black coat


Under wraps: Natalie Portman covers her growing baby bump in an oversized coat as she ran errands yesterday in New York

Throughout the Hollywood Awards season, Oscar winner Natalie Port had her baby bump on full display.

But this weekend the 29-year-old kept it under wraps as she bundled up in a large black coat.

The expectant mother looked casual and comfortable in workout pants, trainers, sunglasses and a large coat yesterday to run errands in down town Manhattan.

The Black Swan actress, who is engaged to ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied, has remained low-key since a controversy erupted last week after a body double claimed that she performed most of Natalie's ballet scenes in the film.

Dressed for comfort: Natalie looked relaxed in her workout pants, trainers and black coat

Sarah Lane, a soloist with the American Ballet Theatre who worked as Natalie's dance double, claims the 29-year-old star only did about five percent of the full body shots seen in the flick.

Lane has also alleged that producers pressured her to downplay her involvement.

Surprised? Natalie seems stunned that she has been recognised, even though she's wearing sunglasses and a hood over her head

Fox Searchlight and the film makers quickly released a joint statement which said: 'We were fortunate to have Sarah there to cover the more complicated dance sequences and we have nothing but praise for the hard work she did.

However, Natalie herself did most of the dancing featured in the final film.'

The star appears to be trying to put the controversy behind her and is preparing to embark on the promotional blitz for her upcoming action comedy Your Highness, which opens next weekend.
