Natalie Portman in 'Black Swan' (2010)

Nina is easily one of the best psycho chicks in modern film, which is why Natalie Portman is the frontrunner for the Best Actress Oscar. It's not just that she's a loner who lives with her creepy mother (Barbara Hershey) and constantly scratches herself to the point of bleeding. Nina's breaking point comes when she hallucinates a night of lesbian sex with her rival Lily (Mila Kunis) and then she thinks that she's killed her. "We knew the ballerina aspect of the movie was not going to appeal to most men, so we really pursued the women first," says Nancy Utley, president of Fox Searchlight, which bought ads for the Darren Aronofsky film during TV shows like “Gossip Girl.” But “Black Swan” has become a box-office phenomenon at $90 million and counting, and a surprising 45 percent of its audience is male.
