Netanyahu, we are sure, was unable to celebrate finally forming a new government after almost two months of negotiations once he heard about your comments. He was probably too wounded by them.
Obviously since you were born in Israel, but have spent your whole life in America, you are an expert on the entire Arb-Israel conflict.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar winning actress commented on Israel’s recent elections saying, “I’m very much against Netanyahu. Against. I am very, very upset and disappointed that he was re-elected. I find his racist comments horrific.”
“However, I don’t — what I want to make sure is, I don’t want to use my platform [the wrong way]. I feel like there’s some people who become prominent, and then it’s out in the foreign press. You know, shit on Israel. I do not. I don’t want to do that, ” she added.
Thank you for that clarification.
Actually, Portman now lives in Paris with her French husband, the choreographer Benjamin Millepied. She talked about her life there too, but really, who cares?
The 33 year old actress also said that she does not even know where the Oscar that she won for the movie “Black Swan” back in 2011 is.
She told THR, “I think it’s in the safe or something. I don’t know. I haven’t seen it in a while. I was reading the story of Abraham to my child and talking about, like, not worshipping false idols. And this is literally like gold men. This is literally worshipping gold idols—if you worship it. That’s why it’s not displayed on the wall. It’s a false idol.”
