    Natalie Portman has said she supports the Defund The Police movement after admitting she was initially fearful of it because of her 'white privilege'. She took to Instagram on Monday, sharing resources that explain the movement in detail following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police on May 25. The 38-year-old said: 'My whole life, police have made me feel safe. But that's exactly the center of my white privilege.

    Marvel Studios has announced that actress Natalie Portman will take up the hammer and replace Chris Hemsworth as Thor God of Thunder. Portman, who played Thor’s love interest Jane Foster in the first Thor film, has kept herself at arm’s length from the Marvel Cinematic Universe since her debut in 2011. Disney owns Marvel Studios. She has been so skittish about returning to the MCU that filmmakers had to use old footage and special effects to add her to the flashback scenes in its Summer blockbuster Avengers: Endgame. But at San Diego’s famed Comic Con this weekend, Marvel Studios announced...

    Times of Israel ^ | 12/14/18 | JOSEFIN DOLSTEN
    JTA — Natalie Portman isn’t a fan of Israel’s controversial nation-state law, which defines Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people but does not specify equal rights for all Israeli citizens. The Jerusalem-born actress slammed the law, which was criticized as it was debated and adopted over the summer, in an interview with BBC’s Arabic language channel broadcast Sunday. “It’s racist and there’s nothing else to say about that,” Portman said. “It’s wrong and I disagree with that.” Israel passed the law, which was sponsored by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, in July. It drew ire from Jews...

    My wife kicks my leg under the dinner table whenever guests rail against anti-Netanyahu and Israel critics. The U.N. and college students are also favorite targets. "Save your contrarian opinions for your articles, not the dinner table," she reproaches me. I'm pretty black and blue, as you might imagine. This abridged dinner talk reflects the mounting impatience Israel advocates have because of a siege mentality set in among Israelis and Anglo-olim (immigrants). It incubates from the politics of fear, and they are just not taking it any longer. I have noticed a palpable shift in attitude in the six years...
  • Natalie Portman and the Crisis of Liberal Zionism

    NY Mag ^ | April 26, 2018 | Eric Levitz
    Natalie Portman’s statement is a model of liberal Zionist dissent. It focuses its fire on Israel’s elected leadership, while evincing love for its people; insists that one need not choose between the Jewish value of empathy for the marginalized, and support for the Jewish state; and frames her criticism of Israeli policy as a defense of Israel’s own best interests — all while explicitly disavowing the BDS movement. For decades, progressive Jews have been assured that such sentiments are kosher. The notion that there is a fundamental distinction between the righteousness of Israeli policy and Israel’s right to exist as...

    Actress Natalie Portman's initially stated reason for canceling a scheduled trip to Israel to receive the prestigious Genesis Prize was that she didn't want to "appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu," who was also scheduled to appear at the event. But her reason seems to have changed throughout the process. Portman's decision to skip the event organized in her honor was first announced last Thursday by the Genesis Prize Foundation, which said it was notified by Portman's representative that "she does not feel comfortable participating in any public events in Israel" because "recent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to...

    The move, believed to be in response to Israel's recent deadly shooting of Palestinian protestors, has been praised by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. Israel's Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev has denounced Natalie Portman's decision to decline an award in her homeland of Israel over politics. "I was saddened to hear that Natalie Portman has fallen as a ripe fruit in the hands of BDS supporters," stated Regev associating her act with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel. "Natalie, a Jewish actress who was born in Israel now joins those who refers to the success...

    Amid controversy over Uma Thurman’s near-fatal “Kill Bill” stunt, a 15-year-old interview with Quentin Tarantino went viral online Monday. The 2003 Howard Stern interview included an almost eight-minute defense of Roman Polanski by the famous director. “He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape. It’s not the same thing. He had sex with a minor. That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you’re talking about violent, throwing them’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world,” Tarantino told the shock jock. “You can’t throw the word ‘rape’ around. It’s like throwing the...

    Natalie Portman got in a not-so-subtle jab at the lack of female representation in the Best Director category last night at the Golden Globes, and social media was quick to react. While presenting the nominees alongside filmmaker Ron Howard, Portman noted, quite pointedly, that all of the nominees were men. “Here are the all-male nominees,” she said as the names of Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Steven Spielberg (The Post), Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World) and the eventual winner Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water). She did not mention it but...

    Donald Trump's supporters have hit out at Hollywood once again, this time over a video of some of the biggest celebrities defiantly singing before his inauguration. A new clip by W Magazine and Conde Nast Entertainment shows the likes of Emma Stone, Natalie Portman and Amy Adams reciting the disco classic I Will Survive. The star-studded cast is seen participating in a 'lyrical improv' reading of the Gloria Gaynor song in the video, released just days before Trump will be sworn in. It's already racked up more than a million views, but many of Trump's most fervent fans found the...

    American-Israeli actress implies Holocaust not any more horrific than other genocides around the world. It's time for the Jewish community to shift focus away from the Holocaust, American-Israeli actress Natalie Portman opined Friday, stating that such focus has detracted from atrocities committed around the world. “I think a really big question the Jewish community needs to ask itself, is how much at the forefront we put Holocaust education," Portman stated in an interview with the British Independent. "Which is, of course, an important question to remember and to respect, but not over other things." Portman revealed that her views stemmed...

    Actress Jessica Alba uses the Pledge of Allegiance as an example of the campaign in an email to supporters. “Growing up, my classmates and I started every day with a ritual: We’d stand up, put our right hand over our hearts, and say the Pledge of Allegiance,” explains Alba. “To me, that gesture was a promise. A promise to be involved and engaged in this country’s future. A promise to work for liberty and justice — and for affordable education, health care, and equality — for all.” Alba joins Hollywood actresses Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson by photographing herself with...
