Natalie Portman’s Creative “Woke” Woody Allen Spin

Since pretty much every actor and actress in Hollywood has kissed the ring slipped onto the crepey blotched hand of Woody Allen over the six decades that he has been directing five good movies and three-hundred terrible ones, pretty much every actor or actress in Hollywood must face questioning regarding his sexual misconduct because this is 2018 and we want to hear these things. Natalie Portman starred in one of those memorable Allen classics, Everyone Says I Love You, in 1996. When interrogated about her involvement with a sex offender in a recent interview with Buzzbottomfeeder pimping her new flick Annihilation, Portman put every lawyer from every courtroom procedural ever to shame by flipping the script with the calculation and litigiousness that only the owner of a fake degree from Harvard could: I don’t think that’s what the conversation should be about. I think it should be about: Why didn’t Elaine May make a movie every year? Why didn’t Nora Ephron make a movie every year? Where’s the female version of Bill Cosby? Why don’t we see any Asian women in films? There’s so much art that’s being lost by not giving opportunities to women and people of color. Let’s not talk about what man’s career is over. Let’s talk about the vast art trove we’ve lost by not giving women, people of color, people with disabilities, and the LGBTQ+ community opportunities — let’s talk about that loss for all of us in art. Let’s talk about that huge hole in our culture. I don’t want talk about “Isn’t it sad that this person who’s made 500 movies can’t make movies anymore?” That’s not for me to decide. And it’s also not what I’m upset about. Someone learned about anaphora in her fake poetry class. I was all set to defend Portman on this one, because 1996 was a very different time – after all it was only three years after Americans were first introduced to the predator mantra from Dazed and Confused: “I get older, they stay the same age.” “Woke” didn’t mean “faux lesbian Katy Perry” and many of the allegations against Allen were not widely know. So questioning her about it is a shameless, vapid ploy for headlines. But Portman had to go and sound insufferable, and in fact the title of her interview is “Natalie Portman Is The Woke Actor We Need Right Now.” Portman is basically saying that once a situation becomes too convoluted we should sweep it under the rug and think about next steps, which is going to be very useful for the likes of Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., and of course Woody Allen. What’s done is done! Free pass for everyone as long as Greta Gerwig can make boring movies.

Yes, Natalie Portman Regrets Signing The Petition To Release Alleged Rapist Roman Polanski

Everyone has regrets. For Natalie Portman, it was signing a petition to release Roman Polanski from Swiss custody in 2009 after he was arrested for an old warrant connected to the rape of a 13-year-old girl. Video: Ellen DeGeneres Won A Bet For Guessing The Sex Of Natalie's Baby! In a new interview with Buzzfeed, the Annihilation star [...] Everyone has regrets. For Natalie Portman, it was signing a petition to release Roman Polanski from Swiss custody in 2009 after he was arrested for an old warrant connected to the rape of a 13-year-old girl. Video: Ellen DeGeneres Won A Bet For Guessing The Sex Of Natalie's Baby! In a new interview with Buzzfeed, the Annihilation star admits she made a mistake by "not thinking about it enough" and simply signing her name because someone she respected asked her to. She explained to the outlet: "I very much regret it. I take responsibility for not thinking about it enough. Someone I respected gave it to me, and said, ‘I signed this. Will you, too?' And I was like, ‘Sure.'" Portman was just one of the many famous names reported to have signed the petition in 2009. Other stars including Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, and Darren Aronofsky demanded "the immediate release" of Polanski after he was arrested for a then-decades old warrant related to his rape case. Related: Natalie Remembers 'Unacceptable' Encounter On Producer's Plane Of course, 2009 was a "different world," the actress professes -- one where Hollywood was turning a blind eye to all the #MeToo stories it systematically generated. But even under the lens of Time's Up, the 36-year-old says she gained something from signing the petition: the ability to empathize with people who make mistakes. She continued: "It was a mistake. The thing I feel like I gained from it is empathy towards people who have made mistakes. We lived in a different world, and that doesn't excuse anything. But you can have your eyes opened and completely change the way you want to live. My eyes were not open." Now, Portman's pretty peepers are open wide and ready to annihilate the patriarchy, but she stresses that the movement shouldn't be about which man to take down next. Video: Natalie Gets Trigger Happy On SNL! When asked if she thinks "Time's Up" for Woody Allen, whom she worked with on the 1996 film Everyone Says I Love You, Portman replied: "I don't think that's what the conversation should be about. I think it should be about: Why didn't Elaine May make a movie every year? Why didn't Nora Ephron make a movie every year? Where's the female version of Bill Cosby? Why don't we see any Asian women in films? There's so much art that's being lost by not giving opportunities to women and people of color." The Time's Up advocate added: "Let's not talk about what man's career is over. Let's talk about the vast art trove we've lost by not giving women, people of color, people with disabilities, and the LGBTQ+ community opportunities — let's talk about that loss for all of us in art. Let's talk about that huge hole in our culture. I don't want talk about ‘Isn't it sad that this person who's made 500 movies can't make movies anymore?' That's not for me to decide. And it's also not what I'm upset about." So, what is she upset about? The quantity of shitty roles she's STILL being offered as an Oscar winning movie star: "It's crazy. It's crazy! And I get a lot more than a lot of other women, and the stuff I get, I'm like, what? With big leading roles, so often motivations are bad things happening to the children. I don't want to play that! Literally, if you take that out, 90% of what's sent to me, I can't do. Or sexual violence. The number of times you're raped onscreen — there are other things that can motivate women and shape their emotional worlds. It's definitely limited." Thankfully, the limits are slowly ceasing to exist. Portman will be killing mutant alien hybrids with an all-female team in Annihilation, in theaters Friday. [Image via Media Punch.].....»»
