Natalie Portman has never been one to remain silent about gender inequality in Hollywood. She’s spoken out about receiving one-third of co-star Ashton Kutcher’s pay for “No Strings Attached,” lobbied for a female director to helm the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic she was then attached to, and has become one of the driving forces behind the Time’s Up initiative. Now, while doing press for her upcoming sci-fi flick “Annihilation,” Portman is using her platform to discuss why we shouldn’t be worrying about Woody Allen’s career prospects.
BuzzFeed broached the subject of Allen, as well as the accusations of molestation against him made by his daughter Dylan Farrow and the numerous actors who have expressed regret over working with the “Annie Hall” director. When asked if she thinks Allen is finished in Hollywood, Portman replied that the whole dialogue ought to be reframed.
