Rashida Jones Talks Harvey Weinstein Allegations: 'It's Great That Women Are Speaking Out' (Exclusive)
Rashida Jones is encouraging women to speak out against sexual harassment in the wake of the recent allegations against media mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The actress, who has not worked professionally with the former Weinstein Company executive, spoke with Et's Deidre Behar about the allegations on Saturday at the Los Angeles Dance Project's annual gala.

"I think it's great that women are speaking out," she said. "I just hope that it encourages a culture of continuing to speak out, because I think sometimes these things peak and one person kind of has to be held accountable. But I'm sure there's so many other instances of this in every business, really."

Natalie Portman's New Mom Beauty Hack Is Pretty Genius (and Requires Zero Effort)

Natalie Portman's New Mom Beauty Hack Is Pretty Genius (and Requires Zero Effort)
When you’re Natalie Portman, you don’t need a whole lot of extra prep time in the morning to look stunning when she leaves the house (and she can thank her glowing, clear skin, which she credits to her vegan diet, for that).

George Clooney made headlines when he married civil rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, whose impressive accomplishments more than match up to his acting career, and ballet professional Benjamin Millepied danced his way into Natalie Portman's heart when they tied the knot in 2012.
